New Faces

Wieden+Kennedy has a thing about portraits. From Portland’s iconic black and white film photography wall to Shanghai’s food portraits—each office’s portraits show off their people in a way that feels relevant to that office’s culture and the city. For W+K London, the city is the center of creative eclecticism; nowhere else do you find so many different cultures, tastes, ideas, and languages melting in one pot. So, it was vital you looked at the wall of faces and got a real sense of that creative diversity.

As such, we commissioned 18 of London’s most promising illustrators, to draw the 200+ faces of Wieden+Kennedy London. The project, entitled “New Faces,” aims to infuse W+K London with a sense of creative eclecticism and community spirit. What makes this project truly exceptional is the kaleidoscope of styles and perspectives each illustrator brings to the table. From 3D and ceramic to whimsical and water colour, every portrait reflects the artist’s unique style.

“New Faces” is not only a testament to the agency’s commitment to celebrating diversity but also a platform for these talented illustrators to showcase their skills as creators and makers. Each illustrator has scanned, sketched, painted and rendered the essence of the people they were tasked to depict, resulting in an exhibition of a wondrous assortment of works and striking scale.
