An all-rounder creative copywriter who can develop big engaging campaign ideas and craft every little execution across a wide range of disciplines. As an integrated creative, I've worked with some of the world's biggest brands including Volkswagen, The Economist, Adidas, Disney, Sony, Virgin Holidays and Wrangler. I have a passion for tone of voice and can quickly adapt writing styles for different audiences. My campaign ideas are considered and I aim to answer business problems, not just tackle briefs. I’ve been to Glastonbury seven times. You’ll often find me playing with LEGO. And I love to travel.
- Wimbledon outdoor advertisingThe All England Lawn Tennis Club welcomes over 500,000 visitors through its gates for the Wimbledon Championships every summer. The brief was to build excitement and anticipation at the moment of arrival in a way that aligned with the global proposition of ‘In Pursuit of Greatness’.
- The Economist online adsRaising eyebrows and subscriptions with online and social ads. The task was to encourage students to subscribe to The Economist, by intriguing them with ads that linked to articles that are free to read. These ads link to an article that discusses how Artificial Intelligence could make some job sectors redundant.
