A few words from Chris Thurman- winner of the "best Tom Selleck" award in the annual W+K mustache Competition. Check out all the winners.
First I would like to thank the academy! i would like to thank all those that voted. I would like to thank all my friends that supported me. My agent. I would like to thank my mom and dad whom without their genealogy this would not have happened.
Most of all I would like to thank my wife who may hate the stache just a little less now; but probably not enough for a winners kiss I bet.
Luke Dreyer gave us a heads up about a project that WK London and Nokia are putting together for The Dead Weather, Jack White’s new band.
“I’ve been put on a Nokia project promoting a performance of Jack White’s new band The Dead Weather. You can read all about it at http://www.ftblive.com. It’s amazing. Basically, it’s a free broadcast-quality stream of the band playing in the studio of long time Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich. The bands nearly brand new and they’re very good – think The White Stripes with more people. The show broadcasts in Portland at 1 p.m. next Monday and everyone in London would love it if you would take a minute to watch the feed. In the meantime, check out FTBlive.com for a behind the scenes look at the band during the build-up to the show and tweet your support if you have a minute.”
In addition to the website, an interactive version was installed in the office windows. Two large screens show a variety of Christmas characters. When pedestrians stand near the windows, their pictures are taken and embedded into the card.
David Lee and Jess Manchester were visiting from our WK London office. They challenged all-takers at WK Portland to a 2-on-2 Basketball game. Well nobody – I mean nobody comes to our house and bosses us around. After some discussion – Mison Henley down in AV and our own beloved postal queen Shei’meka Newmann stepped up to the challenge.

FINAL SCORES: GAME 1) Mison and Shei’meka take it down 7-3 GAME 2) Uh oh David and Jess eek out a win 7-6 to even the match! GAME 3) Final game! Mison can’t miss! 7-1 to take it down….. Good game David and Jess! Come back anytime…
As you may have seen over the weekend the new Honda ad “Jump” has launched.
This is the final piece of a project that has been a year in the making. Certainly a testament to the philosophy “Difficult is worth doing.”
This is the largest single campaign we have ever created for Honda and has included a huge outdoor and print element, as well as a campaign blog, making of documentary, online AV content, dealer radio and print, a teaser TV campaign, a live ad (which we collaborated with Channel 4 on) and finally the main TV spot.
Like all big projects they have a tendency to consume you whilst you push to get the work perfect. It is through the skill, passion and determination of these people that we have achieved such a great result.
