Kaddoura Out at W+K, Maybe Robinson Too

After 10 years at W+K Portland, we’ve received confirmation that Mira Kaddoura (left) is no longer with the agency. Kaddoura basically spent her entire ad career in the great NW, where she served as senior art director and worked on campaigns for Nike (remember “I Feel Pretty?” and Coca-Cola. Along with Kaddoura, we’re hearing that copywriter Ginger Robinson has also left W+K’s HQ after spending eight years at the agency. Robinson’s credits include campaigns for Nike as well as Partnership for a Drug-Free America.

Update: Ginger Robinson reached out to us to confirm she, too, is no longer at W+K. She says, “I would like to confirm that I’m leaving, too, and that Mira and I plan to freelance as a team and pursue other, non-advertising interests for a while. We both love WK and have done the best work of our lives there, but it’s time to explore the world outside those walls. We have nothing but respect for Dan and Dave and WK, and are thankful for all the opportunities we’ve had over the years.”
