I Don't Trust Wieden.
In spite of its provincial reputation, Portland is a rather large city. Certainly large enough for two big-time ad agencies like Wieden and Mutt (don’t laugh) to co-exist peaceably. But today, tensions are running high here at Mutt. I’ve just learned from my people that Wieden is holding their notorious Founder’s Day party right outside our humble studio. Forgive me for being paranoid, but that’s a little weird. To assure our safety, we’ve beefed up security for the evening (from 1 to 2) and tucked away all of our important documents, creative briefs and posters. In this business, one never knows.
