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 https://www.instagram.com/pete_and_bas/?hl=en 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 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtEG5zyldRY&t=11s 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 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vkTxhOoAsg&t=347s, 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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RauxLMFafGI

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.

There’s a great prize to be won too!

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.

Brief:

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 - https://www.facebook.com/socialink.co/videos/286148748906240/

One Minute Brief of the Day: Advertise the #YoungLifeWriters project with @YoungLifeWriter & @TeamHighSheriff

younglifewrite.png

Today we’ve got a great brief with our friends at @YoungLifeWriter. They are launching their new project #YoungLifeWriters with an all-new Twitter feed. That’s why we have teamed up to spread the message to our talented creative audience and beyond. Please give them a follow too!!

Prize: £100 Cash Prize for the Winner!!

Tweet your posters to @OneMinuteBriefs, @YoungLifeWriter and @TeamHighSheriff with the hashtag #YoungLifeWriters

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: entrieslifewriting@outlook.com

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. 

Send your submissions to: entrieslifewriting@outlook.com

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. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/tony-mccormack-1

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

Tweet entries to @OneMinuteBriefs @LyttleFight with the hashtags #LyttleMoments and #WorldCancerDay

Thank you.
