WK12 is an experiment. It’s a school, a mini ad agency, and an idea factory.
We’re housed in Wieden+Kennedy’s Portland headquarters. We do real work with real clients, but we also have time to do art projects, make films, and go on adventures. In WK12 we learn to solve problems.
Show us what you can do.
Send portfolios, CDs, DVDs, websites, blogs… anything that you write, design, make, and create – it just has to fit into a 9″x12″ envelope and get here by January 30, 2009.
