This week, our own Dan Wieden was honored with the Catalyst award at the 2011 Adcolor Awards ceremony in Los Angeles. Dan has always been committed to making the voice and people of advertising and specifically W+K more diverse. Our diversity and inclusion manager Porsha Monroe has shared some thoughts with us; check them out below.
Members of Wieden+Kennedy, the Portland tech community, Mayor Sam Adams and our friends and associates gathered together for last week’s First Thursday to celebrate the official ribbon cutting ceremony for the Portland Incubator Experiment (more commonly known as PIE), a collaborative center that partners leading brands with technology innovators to cultivate community, entrepreneurship and creative thinking.
On Thursday, the month-long show of Daniel Johnston’s Space Ducks: An Infinite Comic Book of Musical Greatness concluded with a performance by the man himself. The event coincided with the relaunch of his site, http://hihowareyou.com, produced in partnership with W+K and WKE.
Good news keeps coming. We are proud to announce that we won 6 Webby Awards this year including the Agency of the Year as well as 5 Effie Awards!
