WHO IS LEBOW?
Ronnie Lebow spent the majority of his young life in the principal's office for daydreaming, sharing out-of-the-box random thoughts, and drawing all over his desk.
These skills gained him admission to OCAD University and helped launch his career as an Art Director and Copywriter at several Toronto advertising agencies, where he created everything from logos to television commercials for some of the world's most prestigious brands (please see Resumé).
In 2001, he was offered the first in-house position as Creative Director at Panasonic Canada, and Ronnie still continues to work on freelance projects for them to this day. In 2016, Ronnie accepted the Creative Director's position at the Canadian office of Publicitas International (now NewBase), the world's leading media representation company, and continues to freelance on the side for other agencies and clients in between projects.
Ronnie has won a slew of international awards in both advertising and design, his work is featured in books, and he has also received recognition for his photography and illustration work.
Ronnie was interviewed on the leading global industry website “ihaveanidea” and appeared as the featured subject in the advertising and design episode of “Career Moves”, a nationwide television series.
An accomplished writer, he contributes often to his well-received industry blog, his articles have graced magazines and numerous websites, and his work has been included in more than one University’s curriculum.
When he's not working, Ronnie likes to paint and is an avid fisherman, experienced outdoorsman and wilderness canoe tripper.
He plays poker annually at the WSOP, and also dedicates his time and
effort on a few different non-profit committees.
