Category Archives: Wieden + Kennedy

se7en months, se7enteen days later…

Has the time really passed by that quickly? So many things have happened since September 19th of 2008. I get to work with some of the biggest brands in the world, collaborate with some of the most amazing creative minds, and took part in the first ever 3-D stop-motion animated film, Coraline. All of these opportunities are presented to me at one of the largest independently-owned advertising agencies in the world, Wieden + Kennedy. The learning curve I’m experiencing right now is phenomenal. There is always something new to explore and I am constantly being pushed out of my comfort zone to create amazing work. I have finally gotten a good feel for this place. Sometimes it’ll be really nice and relaxing and sometimes I’ll be working from 7 in the morning til 2 in the morning. This is totally the kind of environment that keeps me going. When things are being pushed and deadlines are short, I’m focused and running off adrenaline to keep the juices flowing and crank out the project without even seeing any daylight.

For those of you who are interested, I will begin posting new things that I learn and experience here to share with you on a regular basis. I know when I was in school, I wanted to read up on other creatives experiences and learn from it — so I hope I can provide that for you here.
