About me

Emily Nelson is a Copywriter, Photographer & Art Director currently based in London. Emily Nelson also doesn't like to write or speak about herself in third person. I'm best described as passionate, wordy, brainy, a purveyor of several niche (read: useless) fascinating facts. Not made to be subtle. Ever since I was a tiny person I’ve enjoyed looking for a mystery to solve with great enthusiasm. Not much has changed, apparently. I've worked across social strategy, branding, content curation/production, ideas generation and storytelling in various formats. Interested in making work that makes people pause, just for a moment. Also - love a meme. If all else fails to impress – why not take a chance and hire/commission/actually speak to a living, breathing *Gen-Zer? *I think I’m a Gen-Zer. Maybe I’m making this up as I type, who knows.
