2017 One Show Radio Jury

Bryan Collins

Founder / CD

123 West


Bryan has been in advertising for over 20 years in Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver, where he lives now. Prior to launching his own agency, Bryan ran the award-winning creative departments at Cossette Vancouver and Dare Vancouver. Over his career as a Copywriter and Creative Director, Bryan has won multiple Cannes Lions, One Show Pencils, Clios and Communication Arts awards.

In 2013, Bryan, along with partners Rob Sweetman, Jeff Harrison and Scot Keith, opened the advertising and design agency One Twenty Three West in Jeff’s garage in East Van. Eventually growth, and having to share a bathroom with Jeff’s family, meant they had to find more space. So naturally they moved into an abandoned office inside a working industrial laundromat. It’s probably killing them, but it’s pretty cool and really cheap. After just three years, the agency has grown to over 25 staff with clients across Canada.
