  • Freelancer: Available

My name is Nick Entwistle and I am a freelance creative working across the UK. During my previous roles I helped to gain some exciting new clients, worked with brands such as Hartley’s, Aldi, CrossCountry Trains, Russell Hobbs, Jacamo, American Airlines, Go Outdoors and N-Power, won various awards and created integrated campaigns, including TV for Vimto, Go Outdoors,Jacamo, Evans Halshaw & webuyanycar.com. I have won awards and received nominations with the Roses, MPA and Fresh. I was also recently shortlisted for Cannes Young Lions for the second year in a row and been highly commended for the Cannes Lions Media Academy competition with the BBC. I also have experience working internationally on briefs with McCann Helsinki and McCann Barcelona in the past year.

Aside from freelance work I run the Bank of Creativity. This is the place I keep all projects, work and collaborations. Under this brand I run successful Twitter feeds @OneMinuteBriefs, @AgencyQuotes and our personal account @BOC_ATM. As well as other projects like 'Scrapbook' and 'Bumting'.
Between these accounts I have over 18,000 followers and they are highly interactive.
One Minute Briefs has come a long way, in a short space of time, as I have performed talks and workshops at various events such as The Art of New Business at LBi London, Freshtival, D&AD and Manchester Talent Day. Most recently we spoke at the BBC Promax UK event on the same card as Sir John Hegarty and legendary director Tony Kaye. Not only have I been given these incredible opportunities, but also as a result of them I’ve been able to gain exposure across the world as well as being featured in The Drum, New York Times and Buzzfeed.
