About Me

Nick Faber

Nick Faber

Music Creative

My music has been used on worldwide advertising campaigns, I have been nominated for a D&AD award for my work with directors Tokyo Plastic and I scored the Grierson Award-winning documentary film, ‘Bodysnatchers Of New York’.

Most recently I have created The London Music Map, a visual representation of London’s rich and unique musical heritage, available now as a limited edition fine art print and soon to be produced as a fold out paper map of the city.

My greatest satisfaction comes from collaborating with other creative people; working with emerging artists to develop their sound, helping people or brands express themselves effectively and meeting new challenges in the modern world of music and sound.
