Amongst the many notable accounts he has worked on are Singapore Airlines, Huggies, SoyJoy, Ben & Jerry's, and the Health Promotion Board (HPB), for which he has won an Effie's award on HPB's campaign to improve teenage self esteem, and Campaign Magazine's top three campaigns for 2011 for Singapore Airlines' recent global brand campaign featuring the iconic Singapore girl.

Wee was ranked the no. 1 creative in Asia in 2003, and no.1 in Singapore in the 2011 Campaign Brief Asia Creative Rankings. He has collected over 25 Clio's, Cannes Lions, D&AD pencils and One Show pencils.
