W+K wins Shots’ Agency of the Year

We’re really honoured to have been named Agency of the Year at Shots’ annual awards last night. The win comes from a combo of London and Amsterdam work across clients including Coca-Cola, Sainsbury’s and Nike. A huge thanks goes to our brilliant production partners and clients for making this possible.


Wearing Gillian goes to the Guggenheim

In 2018 we were honoured work with Turner Prize-winning artist Gillian Wearing on a unique collaboration, which is now showing at New York’s Guggenheim Museum.

We worked with Gillian to create a five minute film, which deploys face-swapping Artificial Intelligence technology and offers a candid insight into the artist. In the film, we hear Gillian talk about herself, but the people onscreen are actors who have the artist’s facial features integrated with their own.

The full film can be viewed as part of Gillian’s exhibition at the Guggenheim until April 2022. Check out the trailer below.
