Mike Lee


Head of Brand

Mike’s first job at the age of 13 was catching chickens for local farmers. 11 years later, he created his first advertising campaign for the Egg Farmers of Canada. Coincidence? Probably. But nonetheless, for the last 18 years he has worked as an award-winning art director, creative director and designer at some of the top advertising agencies in Canada including Leo Burnett, McCann Canada, TAXI Canada, and Bensimon Byrne.

Mike co-founded Something in the Water over beers with his partners in the winter of 2019. It has allowed him to combine two of his biggest passions – great design and beer – and has thankfully been very thirsty work.
