Long but great

Some of the latest web content out there. All three videos are a bit long (3-5 minutes) but of all of them are worth watching. One is smart, one is funny and the third one is beautiful.

Rockabilly awesomeness

On today's late sunday afternoon just outside Yoyogi park near Harajuku Station some Tokyo Rockabillies are having some fun. My favourite dancing part starts 2 minutes and 5 seconds in. I should learn some of those dancemoves.

Tokyo blog

So far Tokyo has been overwhelming, in both cultural impressions and the amount of work that we have on out desks. Yet Robbin and I found some time to record some of it and we've collected the journey so far on our Robbin Waldemar blog.

It will be more of a quick photo blog and I will keep posting my thoughts here. We finished two major projects today, and I hope to reserve some time on the weekend to reflect on new learnings and to share them on here.

Nike music shoe

Fresh video straight out of W+K Tokyo. Nike free run music shoes. I tried the in-store version of it in the Harajuku store, it's fun.

Arriving at W+K Tokyo

W+K Tokyo gave us a great welcome when we arrived last week. Due to a chaotic first day in Tokyo that was all about finding a place to live we could only show up in the evening on tuesday, just in time (or a bit late) for a get together to celebrate one of our newly fellow creatives (Rock) going to Cannes as one of the young lions competing for Japan – represent!

After settling in we're already on three projects and we're having a great time, it's both challenging and a lot of fun. Trish, the managing director already found time to announce our arrivel on the W+K Tokyo blog.

Japan – a strange country

An info-graphic motion peace I stumbled upon. I have yet to see how much of it applies.

First saturday in Tokyo

I am now in Tokyo. The first week was full of things to take care of, practical stuff mainly and the first few days at the agency were all about getting settled. The first saturday Robbin and I spend walking around Shibuya, Harajuku and Yoyogi park. Here are some great shots that Robbin took.

Of course we visited a typical arcade and I tried my luck getting a sexy manga figurine. Better luck next time.

Portfolio night 8

It's time again for the world's biggest portfolio review event – Portfolio Night round 8. A global event in 37 cities around the world where young creatives get the chance to get feedback on their work from heavyweight creative directors from the advertising industry.

But hey, you probably knew already and bought tickets for it, right? If not, hurry over to and get some for the London event or whatever participating city is nearest to you. It's a great opportunity to show your work!

They've missed out on London last year but this year's line-up of creative directors that you can see with your portfolio looks sweet as honey. Tokyo is not a participating city so I won't have a go at it myself. I'm looking forward to hear about experiences from this upcoming event in may.

W+K Tokyo Lab

One of the many things W+K Tokyo does to keep fresh is W+K Tokyo Lab – a hybrid music label concept. They collaborate with all kinds of Tokyo artists to create music, visuals and other creative expressions to create new experience. Here's a new music video that they've created for Chinza Dopeness. Maybe we'll get a chance to get involved in some kind of way.
