One Minute Brief of the Day: Campaign to #Connect2Earth with @WWF on May 22nd #BiodiversityDay

Following some amazing briefs for #EarthHour and #WearItWildDay with WWF UK, we are thrilled to be doing today’s brief with WWF International and we’re looking forward to seeing what all of the InternationOMBLES come up with!


We’ve got brilliant prizes to be won and your work could feature on WWF social channels to millions of followers!!

Remember to tweet your entries to @OneMinuteBriefs @WWF with the hashtags #BiodiversityDay and #Connect2Earth

We share our planet with millions of different species. This huge variety of animals and plants, and the places they live, is called biodiversity. And, together, they provide us with essentials like food, drinking water, clean air, medicines and shelter.

This International Day for Biodiversity we’re asking people to #Connect2Earth by creating a poster that creatively uses the wifi logo to show us:

  • How diverse the environment/natural world around you is

  • What you love about nature

  • Your favourite species and habitats

  • How you benefit from everything nature has to provide or

  • How you connect with the birds, the bees and anything wild that you please.


While doing it for mother nature is reward in itself, we will also pick:

1 winner who will win £200 cash and WWF merchandise

1 runner-up who will win WWF merchandise from our

Let’s fill those timelines with how beautiful this one planet we call home is.

Below are some examples of previous creative posters using the wi-fi symbol. And, a little film to show what one of the WWF designers came up with. Beautiful stuff.

We’re excited to see what the OMBLES come up with!

One Minute Brief of the Day: Advertise @GasIsMusic #ThePowerofMusic

Today we’ve got a great brief with our friends at GAS Music who helped to create Father Critmas’ music video in his most recent #MerryCritmas campaign. We are also working together on another exciting new music video for an upcoming project. To thank them for all their amazing support, I thought that GAS Music would make an amazing subject for an OMB and I’m sure all the OMBLES will have a lot of fun with this one!

Prize: Agency or freelancer studio time or services to the value of £1000 at GAS Music.


Every event in our lives (good, bad and the ugly) - from social gatherings, school, holidays and travel right through to purchasing decisions and lifestyles, has a soundtrack!

So, how do you advertise the power of sound, audio, music on the moving image with GAS Music.

Don't judge a book by the cover, but do judge a person/brand on their record collection / choice of music!

An example of how important music and sound is to film is the brilliant GAS parody of the Elton John John Lewis advert below.

About GAS Music:

We love music, we're efficient, flexible, cost effective - producing bespoke and production / library music for TV, film, advertising, gaming and B2B our musical arrangements covering full orchestral to sound design. With the added benefit of a record label we're also a functioning studio so we can mix and master (on-line, tv ) and set and certificate to broadcast levels (R128), Voice Overs, ADR, dubbing, foley - we can compose to edit and also edit picture which helps demos, supply chain and saves time and money.

One Minute Brief of the Day: Create Tribute Posters #InMemoryOfIsabella @LyttleFight

We are very sad to be running today’s brief but feel that, together, we can create a beautiful tribute to someone who has inspired many of us as we followed her story.

We received the sad news last week that Isabella Lyttle has passed away on Sunday 28th April. Having got to know Isabella and her family, we were of course very upset and we want to do something to celebrate what a fighter she was and how she has been so inspirational to us all.

That’s why we want the OMBLES to create positive tribute posters to Isabella. These could feature at an event in her memory in the future.

We’d like you to tweet your posters to @OneMinuteBriefs and @LyttleFight with the hashtag #InMemoryOfIsabella

We first heard of Isabella’s story when Louise Chorley got in touch for us to run a One Minute Brief to raise awareness and donations. With over £100k to raise it was going to be difficult but we did what we could. Together with the family, we developed a script for a film based on one of the ideas by @ZedTrafficker that at only 10 years old, Isabella shouldn’t know the ‘C’ word. A film was then made and edited by Trunk and sent out via the charity Facebook feed. Within hours it had 1 million views and hit 10 million views on Unilad, as well as featuring on The Hook, Daily Mirror, Daily Mail and BBC National News. We ran further One Minute Briefs campaigns and asked for people to send in their own videos to ‘the C-word’ and nominate others to do the same. This helped make the campaign go even more viral and has helped the family to raise more than £100,000 towards getting Isabella the life-saving treatment in America she needed.

Unfortunately, despite having the funds to do so, Isabella never became well enough to be able to receive the treatment as here health deteriorated. The family received the bad news that the cancer had spread and they were told to go and make some memories. They headed straight to Disneyland Paris for an amazing trip but upon their return Isabella’s health took a turn for the worse and she passed away peacefully on Sunday 28th April.

I was very sad to hear the news. Isabella was inspirational to myself and lots of our followers. When directing the film, I had to make her shout the word ‘Cancer’ over and over, which is difficult enough itself but her performance was unlike anything I have ever seen. She was battling to save her own life and I will never forget the moment of the final scene in the film which was so real and powerful. I am proud to have seen how the OMB community tried to help Isabella and she has touched all of our hearts.

On Saturday & Sunday this weekend we’ll also be giving the first 100 girls on the guestlist two drinks on us! 

The club is launching on the 20th April bringing in the bank holiday weekend with a bang with guestlist invites and VIP parties on the Saturday and the Sunday. Located on Central Street next to the town hall, Mahiki will welcome guests – including all of the Miss Manchester finalists – with booths, bottles and big-name resident DJ’s including DJ Russke and Ronin.

The rebirth comes from the team behind Don Giovanni, Manchester's oldest independently owned Italian restaurant established in 1984.

They saw an opportunity to bring the global brand back to the city with the full support of the Mahiki London team who want the bar to succeed in our city. With a wealth of hospitality experience and a carefully selected management team from some of the best bars and restaurants in Manchester, we’re excited about the future of Mahiki.


Mahiki will be giving out drinks tokens on the door Saturday and Sunday from 10pm, the lucky recipients of which will be able to exchange them for one of the bar’s famous cocktails or a house spirit. But guestlist will be limited, so people are encouraged to follow @MahikiMCR_ on Instagram and send names to secure a place on it.

With its 5am licence Mahiki is set to be the go-to late night venue in the city. And this time, it’s here to stay. Girls get free entry for the first month when on guestlist.

One Minute Brief of the Day: Advertise 70-year old rap duo @PeteandBas

We’re very excited to collaborate on today’s brief with two guys we are huge fans of!! We’ve got some great prizes to be won too! Can’t wait to see what the OMBLES come up with for this!

  • Chance to be an extra in their next music video.

  • Free tickets to the next ‘live’ show.

  • Meet and Greet with Pete and Bas

About Pete and Bas:

70 year old rap artists Pete & Bas are two of the most elusive figures in music. Debuting their first single in January 2018, they have already amassed a cult underground following. Now only 5 songs down, the duo are selling out shows all across the UK and are rumoured to have collaborations with huge UK artists on the way. Pete & Bas are nothing like any other music act worldwide, a quick look at their instagram will shed a bit of light on the two. They also had an interesting interview with Noisey in which they drove around delivering mysterious packages while vaguely answering questions but still very little is known of the two. So we’re looking to the OMBLES to help tell the world about Pete and Bas in their typical style using their amazing instinctive ideas.

Having featured in GrimeReportTv's The Five Pound Munch, and being co-signed by artists such as Dave, Giggs, Octavian and more, the duo seem to be rolling into the UK music scene very quickly. Their latest music video is currently trending on youtube music and is being described as their best work yet with artists such as Mike skinner from the streets saying "It keeps getting better".

As for what we do know about the pair, Bas is 72 years old and Pete is 68. They have been rapping for about a year now and although the stories as to how they started are debated online, they have said in previous interviews that the two met in a corner shop as Bas was teaching piano. According to Pete he was called to the shop for a health inspection and ended up talking to Bas about music and this somehow lead to their new career. Check out their latest track #DentsInAPeugeot here.

One Minute Brief of the Day: Advertise the benefits of #SocialMediaMarketing for Businesses and SMEs with @socialink_co

Today we’ve got a fun brief with our friends at Social INK. To coincide with the launch of their new website ( they would like the OMBLES to do what they do best, and advertise how businesses and SMEs can greatly benefit from social media marketing. There’s a great prize to be won too!

SocialInk Logo NO BG.png

Prize: £100 Cash Prize for the Winner!!

Tweet your entries to @OneMinuteBriefs and @socialink_co and include the hashtags #SMM and #SocialMediaMarketing. Make sure you follow @socialink_co on Twitter and check out our Facebook page where we will be posting and sharing some of our favourite concepts.

Please include the Social INK logo and website in your designs.


Social media is often an afterthought for businesses because they don’t fully understand its power and potential as a marketing tool. Most people are ‘on’ social media and ‘use’ social media in a personal capacity, and therefore see it as more of a pastime or something to flick through when bored. What they don’t realise is that a lot of the content they consume, like and share, is on their feed thanks to effective social media marketing.

We want you to help us spread the word about the benefits of social media marketing for businesses and SMEs. for platforms like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook & LinkedIn.

Social media gives brands the power to target content, and particularly ads, to a very specific audience, allowing them to measure and track what works. And at a fraction of the cost of more traditional methods. Data is more immediate and useful in terms of ROI.

If you’d like some inspiration, Social INK’s CEO, Chris hosted a live video AMA with One Minute Briefs’ Nick, back in October, where they discussed creativity and social media -

Please tag in people between 16-25 who would you think would like to feature/get involved in this great initiative. They can send their submissions to:

This is the perfect opportunity for young copywriters out there to have their work published for a great cause!!

About the Project:

Exciting opportunity for aspiring young authors!

The Haven Greenfield is launching the #YoungLifeWriters project and collaborating with Creative Locations Publishing based in Saddleworth and Sacred Stories Publishing based in USA to create a compilation book featuring the short stories and poetry of aspiring young life writers aged 16 to 25 from the Greater Manchester area and looking to expand this into other areas of the UK as the project expands.

Are you a young life writer with a story to tell?

Maybe you have something that you feel needs to be shared, discussed or could create positive change for your community? 

Could it inspire and unite people? Do you want to share your story of the challenges you have faced?

If your story is a reflection of a personal experience, we would love to hear from you. It can be in the form of a short story or poem.

Our vision for this project is to offer 16 to 25 year olds the opportunity to share their voices through writing. Sharing our stories is a powerful way to inspire and create positive change for ourselves and others. We hope to engage our audience of readers with messages and life experiences written from the hearts of our young people. 

We are now open for entries and the final closing date is midnight of 19th March 2019 

It is free to enter and all manuscripts will be read by a panel made up of representatives of The Haven Greenfield and Creative Locations Publishing and shortlisted before selections will be made and the authors offered the chance to feature in the compilation book to be published and marketed world-wide by Sacred Stories Publishing in paperback and e-book formats.

This project is being supported by the current High Sheriff of Greater Manchester, Dr Robina Shah and more information about her work can be found on the Team High Sheriff website.

Our belief:

We are doing this project because we feel that writing can be a powerful means of self-exploration which is often overlooked. It can be a way a young person can understand themselves, their lives and empower others to believe in themselves too.

Our aim is to really find out what young people have to say and for us to listen. The short stories and poems will be published in a book and promoted and distributed globally. Proceeds will go into a project of their choice.

Example poem: Written by Young Life Writer - Emma Sykes

I sit here in silence

With no thoughts in my head

Seeing a poem

Which only lays dead

Because of the fear,

The struggle, the pain,

To allow anyone

To even know my name.

And the persona I choose

Lies close to my heart

As a way to protect

The fire destined to start

The fire that burns

Every bridge in my soul Sealing the approval

Of my ultimate goal.

Freedom to ride

On the waves painted black

With choices so endless

You never look back

I see the elements

As they live within me

And the ‘Mother’ as she returns

And continues to be

My greatest teacher,

In times such as these

When life becomes

A little more than a breeze.

But to all my Mothers,

As we continue to grow

I ask for your guidance

In this world down below

To ignite the flames,

The passion, the power,

To rise within me,

The Great Purple Flower.

One Minute Brief of the Day: Create posters for #LyttleMoments on #WorldCancerDay with @LyttleFight


I am very sad to be writing this on #WorldCancerDay but I saw a post from Isabella’s family at the weekend and felt that OMB could once again help Isabella. We had previously done a campaign that resulted in the video below starring the amazing Isabella herself.

Unfortunately, Isabella’s Neuroblastoma has spread and the family have been informed the following by doctors.

We were sat down and told the words we have most feared hearing since October 2010. We were told that we need to make some memories with Isabella. The scan results from Tuesday has shown significant progression in just three weeks and the neuroblastoma is showing up in new places.

That’s why today we want to create posters of positivity for Isabella and encourage donations to the #LyttleMoments cause to help her and her family make some amazing memories together.

Please enter and share the work of others via retweets as much as you can and share the following link in your tweets.

Remember to read all of the links to fully understand why we are running the brief to help the family and get involved.
