Lez Rudge: Colorist/Partner

In his decade-plus as a colorist for Nice Shoes, Lez Rudge has worked on spots for beauty, cars, comedy, and pharmaceutical companies, among others, continuously working to improve his skills and perfect his art form.
Over the years, he has worked with the top directors and DPs in the world, yet shows the same excitement and dedication even if it's with a first timer. This has earned him the reputation of being one of the most collaborative and innovative colorists globally.
