Zulu Alpha Kilo is thrilled to announce the return of creative director Nick Asik to the agency. Nick rejoins the agency where he worked from 2010 to 2015. During his first stint at Zulu, Nick worked on the award-winning Coca-Cola ‘Arctic Home’ campaign, Interac’s ‘Be in the Black’ brand relaunch and was the writer on Zulu’s parody website. In his first week back, he worked on the Subaru tribute to frontline workers that garnered a lot of praise from consumers across Canada.
“Having another former Zuligan return home during this time feels good. Nick is a major creative talent, a great mentor to young creatives and he’s blended into our culture seamlessly. We’re honoured to have him back, albeit virtually for now,” said agency founder and chief creative officer, Zak Mroueh.
Nick’s career has spanned North America, working for agencies in Toronto, Calgary, Los Angeles and New York. Most recently, Nick was creative director at WAX in Calgary, where he worked on the Society of Professional Journalism’s Fake News campaign which trademarked the term ‘Fake News’ and sent President Trump a cease and desist letter. The campaign became international news, earning coverage from CNN, Newsweek and the CBC. Throughout his career, Nick has contributed to other notable campaigns including WestJet’s ‘Owner’s Care’ and Calgary Farmers’ Market’s long-running ‘Fresh’ campaign. He has also worked on blue chip clients such as Audi, Bell, Heineken, Honda, and Nintendo.
Over the past 15 years Asik has become one of the country’s most consistently awarded creative directors and copywriters. In addition to crafting ads, he dedicates time to writing comedy and performing stand-up, having co-written a show for Second City in 2017.
Nick’s return to Zulu follows on the heels of Jessica Hill returning to the agency earlier this year as business group director.
