Name 12 Strangers You’d Spend A Year Working With [Headlines]


Wieden + Kennedy have just ended the application process for their in-house W+K 12 program where a group of 12 creative people work for 9 months under the direction of the advertising agency on client projects. Did you make the cut?

A table is a place to convene, to break bread, to meet people and to share stories. Wieden + Kennedy 12 has its own table that resides in the heart of Wieden + Kennedy Portland’s office. It’s four feet wide and 12 feet long.

It’s a long wooden table with 13 chairs that over the last 7 years have been filled with people from a multitude of different creative backgrounds.

Designers, writers, producers, programmers, illustrators, musicians, photographers, gamers, bloggers, lawyers, mind-benders, social scientists – you name it. We create campaigns for local businesses and non-profits, and when we are not doing that, we get to work on whatever we want. But we’re always working, seeking, learning. W+K 12.

The deadline was August 7th and we’re enthusiastic to see what submissions are accepted!
