Wieden+Kennedy Review – 2 Thumbs Up!!Posted on August 10th, 2011 No comments
Some great news here for design reviews because as of late it seems all my reviews are mean but today I’m happy to annouce an amazing company who if you have not heard of them before you should check them out!
Customer Service: 9 / 10 (Fantastic)
Web Design: 10 / 10 (Great Design)
Web Development: 7 / 10 (a lot of Flash)
Project Management: 8 / 10 (Large and in Charge)
Here are a few of the amazing reviews sent in:
I like this place. There is a giant wooden beaver in the lobby. And a bird’s nest that you can sit in on the upper floor while you have your deeply creative thoughts about how to encourage more people to use Old Spice on their unmentionables.
They also throw a very nice party and everyone there, in spite of the extremely fancy, way fancier than you, setting is really nice and welcoming.
They also make very amusing and sometimes provocative commercials. I suppose if there’s a shame in all of it, it’s that so much awesome creative energy, incredible design, significant storytelling and skillful, graceful work ends up in a stick of deodorant. On the other hand, it’s not much fun to smell other people’s armpits. So as far as missions go, that’s not a bad one.
Hooray for advertising. Hooray.
I mean – c’mon.. who hasnt heard of Wieden + Kennedy? Nike has set standards for international advertising and WK is the powerhouse that created all Nike ads since they were born at the University of Oregon campus.
W+K has offices in London, NY, Amsterdam and Tokyo. All Honda, ESPN and MIller ads are made in the Portland headquarters. The agency is known for its creativity and passion for innovation. Ad Age ranked W+K as the world’s best agency for almost 15 years in a row.
Not just advertising, but talk about architecture. The W+K team turned a huge warehouse building in NW Portland from an ice-storage to the coolest agency buildings ever. Check out the photos. The agency has a mandatory happy hour and dj’s spinning sweet melodies starting Friday 4pm. What a kickass place to work!
