W+K Tokyo

Wednesday night fever

With visitors in town from Portland and some big departures & arrivals, Wednesday was time to party. Unnecessary feather boas, barrels of sake, tears, woodblock print graffiti storytelling and glow sticks all played important roles. Good luck back at the mother ship Trish! We will miss you!

Emilie, Hiromi and Akio made Trish’s dream come true. Trish always to wanted to have a Japanese block print so Emilie drew all the Trish’s memories and happenings in the last 5 years and they carved it.

The theme for the feast was “Trish’s most favorite Roppongi soul food”.

Lunch with…vol.5

2010′s last guest for Lunch with… was Tota Hasegawa/ Tomato. Tota was here almost 5 years ago with another member of Tomato, Simon Taylor. We were all excited about his return and the collection of works he presented to us. He is traveling back and forth between Tokyo and London, and we were lucky enough to book his time for us.
It was so great to have you back, Tota! Please come again.

Welcome to our new photo wall gallery

Those of you who have visited our office before might be familiar with the wall of photos at the entrance. It’s a tradition for all our global offices to have photos of people who work there on display. It’s not only an introduction of our people but also shows W+K’s philosophy of valuing people above anything else.

We were all naked in the former version, but this time, we decided to go crazy. Here are some previews. Please come visit us anytime to enjoy the entire gallery. Lots of surprises.
