57 years old, one of Scotland’s most accomplished and experienced advertising creatives, Nick has worked in the business for over 35 years as a Copywriter, Creative Group Head, Creative Director and in his present freelance/consultant capacity. His agency experience covers 6 years at DMB&B London, 5 years at Hall Advertising in Edinburgh, and shorter spells in a number of agencies in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester and London.
Accounts worked on are too numerous to mention but include Sony, Bosch, Lee Jeans, Scottish & Newcastle and Tennent Caledonian. Since leaving the agency side some 20 years ago, he has worked on an ad-hoc basis with most of Scotland’s top advertising and design agencies including, of course, 60 Watt.
