Lee Epstein

Adjunct Professor CCE

Lee Epstein started his 43 year advertising career at legendary Doyle Dane Bernbach, where, for 20 years, he had great fun creating a memorable stream of award winning ads and campaigns for major clients. 

As DDB got big... bigger... biggest, Lee felt the fun part of creating ads was going... going... gone. So he got back to "small" and "fun" by putting his name on the door of his own shop in 1981. During his career, he's won over 100 creative awards, judged over 50 advertising events and has been either the author or subject of many industry magazine articles.

Since 1972, Lee has been sharing his extensive knowledge of the creative advertising world with studets at Pratt Institute's School of Art & Design, where, as an Adjunct Professor in the Undergraduate Degree and Associate Degree Programs, has been successfully teaching his approach to conceptual advertising and art direction design with a calculated combination of guiding principles and constant innovation.
