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.


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!

After realizing that 17 of the animal emoji used every day represent endangered species, London paired up with the World Wildlife Fund for a clever social media-based fundraiser.

A multifaceted campaign and :90 spot perfectly captures the Icelandic spirit (and reviving power of skyr) for Arla Skyr.

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

Check out the W+K London blog for even more of their latest work, office fun, and peeks into personality!
