A friend sent us a link to an interesting post that Iain Tait published yesterday on his CrackedUnit2 blog, which basically states that Wieden+Kennedy”s global interactive ECD (who was recently named a partner) is looking to scratch a certain item off of his to-list: “Find awesome people.” Judging from his lengthy post, Tait wants to corral a group of “freaks,” aka interactive creative directors who he hopes will join W+K’s global network.
If you’re a “visionary realist,” “perfectionist hacker” or a “digital revolutionary with traditional sympathies,” perhaps you might be the type of person Tait’s looking for. Who needs Craigslist or a job board when you can pen something this hopeful and whimsical in hopes of separating the wheat from the chaff. Guess we’ll find out eventually if Tait’s finally able to trim down his to-dos. Read his full post here, which has contact info as well for those who are the slightest bit intrigued.
