22squared Hires Its Newest Creative Director

By Erik Oster 

Indie agency 22squared has hired Bryan Lee as a creative director in its Atlanta headquarters.

In the new position, Lee will be tasked with working alongside fellow creaitve director Roy Torres across key accounts including Baskin-Robbins, Dunkin’ Donuts, Costa Rica and Interface, while reporting to executive creative director Al Patton.

“Bryan is exactly the kind of multi-talented, multi-platform thinker we want solving problems for our clients. He has that rare ability to blend concept, artistry and innovation into any given brief, and that allows him to attack work from several different angles,” said Patton. “We’re extremely excited to welcome Bryan and his diverse skillset to 22squared.”

Lee joins 22squared from BBDO Atlanta, where he has served as an associate creative director for the past two years, working with clients including AT&T and Toys R’ Us. Before BBDO he spent six years at CP+B Boulder as an art director and senior art director. During that time his clients included Best Buy, Kraft, Bud Light and Hotels.com (he was part of the creative team behind the “Captain Obvious” campaign for the latter). Prior to joining CP+B, he spent two years as an art director with Tribal DDB.

Lee’s appointment follows the elevation of John Stapleton to CCO last December and Patton’s arrival to head up creative in the Atlanta office in April.
