About me

Jacob Denno is a freelance copywriter, editor and creative consultant based in North London. Through his command of the English language and his ardour for building brands, he has sold over 45,000 copies of a niche literary magazine, been integral in the transformation of a small design agency into one of London’s top-ranked advertising agencies, and enabled a new property development firm to sell every house from its first project in less than four weeks. He is a huge fan of the em dash, writes to the soundtrack of '12 Hours of White Noise' and can do a pitch-perfect impression of a clucking chicken.

In 2017, I sold Popshot to The Chelsea Magazine Company for a ludicrous sum.
