W+K Tokyo

Welcome to Tokyo, Googlers!

Every year, the young and the brightest of the newly joined Google employees make a trip around the world to learn about culture and market outside of their countries. Today’s crew included folks from the US, UK, Spain, Germany, Amsterdam and Russia. They stopped in Japan before continuing on to Taiwan and India (nice orientation!). W+K was asked to introduce ourselves, share our philosophy and the work we have done in Tokyo.

Trish and Yuko ready for action:

Presentation started out with good laughter.

We fielded lots of great questions. For example: What makes a great client? Our answer: shared values, a desire to do great work, a spirit of collaboration, and, of course, nice people who we like to spend time with. We’re lucky to have a great list of clients who fit that bill, including Google Japan.

Quite a sight to see them flooding the street of Roppongi. It was a very fun session with interesting discussions and lots of good laughs. Please come back again next year!

Bon voyage Flightman

Last week we had a send off for Shun as he embarks on his next big journey. Shun Jovi did not disappoint, giving the performance of a lifetime in his “This is it” farewell tour. Accompanied by Shingo on iPhone guitar, dancing flight attendants Yuka, Yuko and Michiyo, and a smoke machine.

Lots of love Shun Shun. We will miss you.

OUTTANET RADIO -AFRA BIRTHDAY BASH-

弊社会議室で毎月ナマで放送されているOUTTANET RADIOの今年一発目は、AFRA BIRTHDAY BASHと銘打ってアゲアゲで放送され、かなり刺激的な展開となりました。。USTREAMとTWITTERの相乗効果で、今までにないアクセス数を達成し、TWITTERのつぶやきにラジオMCが、コメント返すというオモロな展開を見せる等、今後どうなっていくか非常に楽しみ。当日は偶然近くにいたUSTREAM本社の人達もご来店。東京アンダグランドの洗礼を受け刺激を受けていたようです。今回の様子は、OUTTANETのサイトにてチェックできるのそちらもよろしCOOL J。次回放送は追ってご報告いたしMOS DEF。
