W+K Shanghai Creative Director Ryan Gerber Returns to US, Goes Out in Style

Oil + Ink 1W+K Shanghai creative director Ryan Gerber is leaving that city for someplace where the air is cleaner than second-hand smoke.

Gerber will be returning to the US and, as a last hurrah, he collaborated on an art show with current and former W+K employees called Oil+Ink. The show runs until the 20th, at which time all of the art, including two very bad ass motorcycles, will belong to W+K. Ryan has worked with clients such as Chrysler, Jeep, Converse, Fiat, Beats, Pepsi, Levi’s, Amp Energy, Nike, and Motorola. He spent over 3 years with R/GA before jumping to W+K Shanghai in 2010. You might remember this trippy recruitment video he worked on for the agecny. Check out more photos of the sweet bikes below.Oil+ Ink 2Oil + Ink 3

We have to say this one of the most peculiar, mesmerizing recruitment tactics we’ve seen and it comes to us from W+K Shanghai, which enlisted the directing/animation services of Shotopop to entice those interested in a position at the agency to take an online creativity test and hopefully join the team.

A team at W+K Shanghai came up with the basic script for the clip before Shotopop took over and whipped up a melange of hallucinatory images to carry the narrative, giving us everything from an  “OctoShark” as your host to characters whose ideas done literally overfloweth. While we don’t actually see ourselves situated in Shanghai anytime soon, at least we now get the gist of what an acid flashback might feel like. Credits after the jump.
