Nick Bell


What does it mean to me to be on the board of the British Arrows? I’m a Brit. I grew up on a diet of great British advertising. I loved it. When I got my first job in advertising as a post boy, I never believed I’d ever be going to the British Television Advertising Awards (as it was), let alone winning its awards, chairing its jury and sitting on its board. So you could say it means quite a bit to me.

Starting his career at Abbott Mead Vickers/BBDO, Nick went on to become Executive Creative Director of Leo Burnett and J Walter Thompson and Global Creative Director at DDB.

He is currently Executive Creative Director of Fallon.

Nick has produced award winning work for Volvo, The Economist, IKEA, BT, RSPCA, McDonalds, Heinz, John West, Mercedes Benz, Nintendo, Procter and Gamble, Smirnoff, Golden Wonder, HSBC, Nestle and Unilever.

He has achieved the prestigious ‘Advertiser of the Year’ award twice – for McDonalds and for Heinz – and his personal awards include the Cannes Grand Prix, 4 Cannes Gold Lions, 2 D&AD Silver Awards and the Andy Award of Excellence.

Nick has chaired the British Arrows jury and was also elected D&AD President by his peers.
