‘We don’t believe in the normal way of doing something’ – Dan Wieden talks to Design Indaba
Some days are better than others. And in this building we’re a little partial to the first of April.
33 years ago, on the 1st of April, two guys did something fairly foolish: they quit their jobs and founded an agency. This agency, in fact. And this is why every year, while everyone else is consumed by fake headlines and bad pranks, we raise a glass (or, if we’re being honest, a successive bunch of glasses) to those two men, and to bad ideas with great consequences.
The 33rd Annual Founders’ Day Ball included red carpets, black ties, award ceremonies, and more drunken acceptance speeches than you can shake a swizzle stick at.
