New Kids On The Block

By Marshall Ball

W+K’s most loveable quipster Alex, his wonderful wife Becky, and their glowing daughter Rosie, recently added two members to their household: Ned and Billy. 

The twin boys arrived healthy and happy, naturally wearing Dad’s trademarked smile.

Please help us welcome the newest additions to our W+K family.

We’ll be passing a card around the office, get your congrats on the card by entering them in the comments section below.

#FF

By Carrie Hogan

What is #FollowFriday?  Every Friday you'll see tons of people on Twitter making suggestions for who to follow. You list the users you recommend others follow and add the #FollowFriday (or #FF for short). 

Today my #FF recommendation is the EmergingPlatforms team at W+K. The EP team is a highly trained group of digital ninjas folks that focus on creating cultural disruption for our brands. Follow our list here.

WARNING: Be prepared for lots of geeking out over technology, instagram, and bacon.

There’s something to be said about planting your butt in another person’s chair and seeing the world from their point of view. No two people see the world (or even the office) the same way. With this in mind, we went around the building, hoping to glean some insight about people by seeing their work areas through their eyes.

The rules were simple: 1) Take a photo from your desk chair; (2) You only get one shot; (3) Describe what you see in your own words. Here’s what we found:

What does the world look like from your chair? Let’s hear about your view from the comments.
