Dan Cole

Creative Director, Copywriter


Ok.
Long copy at last.
I’m a creative with experience in just about every media going and as the briefs get ever more diverse the job gets even more interesting.
In the past few years at I’ve helped make bankers look human, given abused children someone to turn to, created a 90 minute, crowd-sourced road movie for Honda; launched the world’s first and only mobile picnic App; unleashed 2 million personalised Yoobots into the homes of Britain’s overweight kids for the British Heart Foundation; and set up the world’s smallest, unsweatiest gigs in the back of a camper van for Right Guard deodorant.
Since losing my hair, i’ve gained experience in some of the biggest agencies in the world,, developing ideas for European, African and Asian markets. Before losing my hair, i was named as Campaign’s Young British Creative of the Year (seems just like yesterday) and became a UK based tutor for Miami Ad School.
And i'm not just shiny on my head. Although I like to pretend awards don’t matter much, I contradict myself somewhat by keeping a long list of shiny metally things right here....
