Headmaster

When you step foot in Wieden+Kennedy London, you are greeted by the portraits of our people. As we refresh our reception area for the upcoming decade, we wondered: what is a portrait? Is it a photograph? A painting? Can you touch it? Play with it?

This exploration gave birth to Headmaster. First, we 3D-scanned the heads of our entire staff. Next, we did the most logical thing we could do: virtually-archive our people in a holographic arcade game, where you can play with their heads by flailing your hand inside a dark hole.
