About me

Yes, unfortunately that is my real surname. Believe it or not, Pickles is actually a relatively common name where I come from. But then again, so are in-breeding and webbed feet. ​ Yorkshire born, Yorkshire bred, I was shit at farming but good at writing, so decided to do advertising instead. I've worked for M&C Saatchi in Kuala Lumpur, Leo Burnett in Turin and Iris Worldwide in London (not to mention a year learning the ropes at the School of Communication Arts in Brixton). I can write short copy. I can write long copy. But at the end of the day it's all about the idea and creating an impact. ​ Two things mark me out: craft and graft. I'll not stop writing until I'm 100% happy that my work's the best it can be. Email: mattyjpickles@gmail.com
