Girl Spoofs W+K 12 Site with Hopes of Getting In

Roderick Jensen seems to have inspired some people. If you remember, he was the guy who spoofed VCU Brandcenter’s “Who?” job recruitment site in May as a way to gain the school’s attention. Unfortunately, he was quickly ordered to shut the site down. On the bright side, though, VCU’s actions haven’t dissuaded others from taking a similar route elsewhere.

Meet Kate Digilio, a young lady who really wants to get into W+K 12, Wieden + Kennedy’s year-long program that brings together 13 individuals from across the board–ranging from designers and gamers to musicians and scientists–to discuss the hows and whys of creative problem-solving at the agency’s Portland HQ. The school is currently accepting applications for next year’s class and Digilio’s making her presence known by creating her own send-up of the WK+12 site. From what we hear, the folks over there dig it so regardless if Digilio gets in or not, at least her spoof site has a good chance of staying up for more than a few days.
