W+K On the Side: What Ye is It?

Can’t wait for the new Kanye album?

Can’t always remember what day it is?

Neither can we. Lucky for you, there’s an answer.

All-Yes

Nick Stokes and Eric Swanson, two Portland-based WKers who are super stoked for Kanye’s 7th album, have created WhatYeIsIt.com—a single serving website that lets you add some ‘Ye to your day with 7 custom looping animations based on Kanye’s 7 solo albums and the 7 days of the week.

“It started out as just one drawing,” Stokes said. “Then that became an animation, then all the days of the week. It took on a life of its own.”

Check out a new video every day for a week at http://whatyeisit.com/ and @WhatYeIsIt on Instagram.

Happy Tues’Ye!

lurpak
Some gorgeous, mouthwatering print work accompanied the latest campaign for Lurpak.
