About me

Thank you for taking the time to have a look at my application. I have been a freelance creative strategist for the last five years working across a strong portfolio of luxury and consumer brands, before that I was employed full-time at Exposure and Edelman in London - on an integrated marketing and content creation level. My experience spans work with brands from Nike to Louis Vuitton and Xbox to Rolls-Royce, through to creating and launching my own brands and products including award-winning menswear label Ada + Nik.  I’m looking for an opportunity to apply the knowledge that I’ve amassed to a creative role within a progressive company, hence my application for the partnerships role.  In terms of skillset, I have worked at a creative producer and director level as well as with a hands-on approach documenting live and creating concepts, realities and experiences that are unforgettable. I have also activated an implemented creative strategies and brand partnerships across OOH, PR, social media and editorial content plus stills and video throughout my entire career. More can be seen at www.nikthakkar.com  Some of my career highlights include a collaborative design project with Coca-Cola and will.i.am for Ekocycle where I made a leather jacket with in built camera, stocked and subsequently sold through at Harrods. Another highlight is creating a sonic him for Rolls-Royce due for release shortly. Running an award-winning menswear brand for four years, plus content that I have directed and produced being featured everywhere from i-D to Paper Magazine, Hypebeast to cinemas!  Happy to talk you through my work in person, if given the opportunity. I also speak five languages and hold exception relationships with major brands. From an editorial POV, I have successfully managed a personal blog featuring original content for the last seven years. I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully working with you.
