One appoints new Creative Director
Andy Wood is a well-known force within the creative industry and with over 20 years’ experience, he’s worked for a multitude of agencies across Manchester on a freelance basis for the last 14 years.
Throughout his career, he’s frequently worked alongside the previous creative director here at One, Pete Johnston. Since retiring, Pete has returned to One as part-time creative consultant and continues to work alongside Andy.
After joining the team as a freelance copywriter in 2016, Andy has now decided to take the permanent role of creative director.
Andy commented on his appointment: “Having worked as a freelancer for 14 years, moving into a permanent role was always going to be a big decision – one that’s not taken lightly.
“My time working with One became more frequent over the last 12 months and in this time, the company has seen real change and has shown incredible initiative to keep up with the ever-changing landscape of marketing. This was a key influencing factor in me wanting to keep working with the team.”
Andy was involved in One’s rebrand in mid-2018, which saw the agency unveil a new proposition and brand identity, as well as a restructured service portfolio to better support our growing and diverse client base.
Andy continued: “This is genuinely one of the only, if not the only agency I would have considered becoming part of full-time. The whole team’s brimming with tenacity and determination to deliver the absolute best work for clients. This, combined with the service offering and ‘Brand Magic’ proposition, makes One an agency to watch and a team I want to be a part of.”
With our Managing Director, Wayne Silver adding: “Andy’s work on every project he’s been involved in has wowed clients and colleagues alike. It was obvious that the chemistry between Andy and One was there right from the beginning and the time leading up to his appointment has felt like natural progression and growth.
“Having worked with Andy over the last couple of years, we know that this appointment is a fantastic move for One, especially for all current and future clients.”
