Check out The LeBrons take-over of ESPN’s SportsCenter.
This SportsCenter aired before LeBron’s first game of the season (vs. Washington Wizards) and has been completely taken over by our LeBrons content. It was a never-been-done-before moment for both Nike and ESPN. Check them out.
Once a year artists and designers from all over Portland are asked to bend their minds around miniature golf. They fill Holocene with putting greens and all manner of cleverness to make golf holes with crazy ramps, chutes, funhouse mirrors and blinky lights. This year W+K 12 created “Blowhole: The Hole”. Golfers tee off a surfboard through a pirate ship and into the moving mouth of a whale. Once you sink the hole, the ball is blown out the whale’s blowhole.
W+K12 walked away with the “Best in Show” award and a briefcase containing $500 in cash. HELLLLZZZZ YEAH.
It’s tradition here at W+K to decorate the building on Halloween and scare the daylights out of children that come trick-or-treating for candy. This year kids were welcomed not only by piles of candy and scary decorations but also by a real python, cobra, two tortoises, face painting and an inflatable castle!
For the past 13 years our own Rob Kendall has been building elaborate Halloween displays in his front yard. His house draws in close to 2,500 Trick-Or-Treaters every year. Check out what he did this year.
Great Guys Day is a day at Harold Oliver Primary, a local grade school, when the kids are invited to bring in a great guy in their life. Unfortunately some kids don’t have a great guy in their life to bring in. That’s where WK stepped in. We sent 9 great guys to hang out with 9 great kids for the afternoon. The day was spent making crafts, eating lunch with the kids and playing a hell of Soccer game. Special thanks to Dan Wieden, Floyd Rocker, Paul Levy, Taylor Twist, Aaron Lee, Peter Yue, Gene Willis, Fritz Mesenbrink and Chris Soli for donating part of their day to make a few kids real happy.
