Weiden + Kennedy Takes Home Awards at this years Cannes Lion Festival of Creativity


Portland based ad agency Weiden + Kennedy took home several awards at this year’s Cannes Lion International Festival of Creativity.  Most notably W+K won this year’s Advertising Agengy of the Year at the event. As reported in this week’s Oregonian,

Dan Wieden, co-founder and global executive creative director, also received the Lion of St. Mark award, given for “long and outstanding contribution to creativity and communications.”

W+K’s work with leading brands like Nike, Coca-Cola, Heineken, Old Spice and a host of others continues to lead the pack with innovative campaigns and engaging content.  W+K doesn’t just look to help the big brands though as evidence with their work with Portland Public Schools.  In June of this year W+K hosted “Hack for Portland Schools”  which focused on coming up with new solutions to engage the Portland community and create more support for public schools.  W+K is always looking for ways to stretch and grow as a creative company and every year they seem to meet that challenge.  It will be interesting to see what the rest of this year and years to come will bring for W+K and as a result Oregon’s entire creative community.
