About me

WHO THE HELL IS OLLY COOPER? Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Olly Cooper. A Senior Creative Copywriter with a love for proper advertising. Proper creative ideas. The stuff that digs its claws in and grips your attention. Force feeds you everything it's selling. Before sending you on your way to buy, do or feel something, without you ever truly realising it happened. I’ve turned Toilet Duck bleach into the season’s must-have Eau De Toilette. Made England rugby fans fall in love with their beloved team using their own words. Helped loved ones share how they feel with a Cineworld Giftcard. Worked with WWF to reverse climate change using a light switch. And helped women rewrite shitty gender stereotypes with a fashion collection. There were also a number of pitch wins dotted throughout for brands such as Heinz Beanz, Nutella and Boursin. Not to mention an award or two. If you told ten-year-old me he’d achieve all this before he was 30, he’d actually be pretty pissed off. We were supposed to be in Manchester United’s starting 11 by now. TRYING TO EXPLAIN THAT TO MY MUM I’m a Creative. It basically means I create adverts. No Mum, not the John Lewis one. I know you like that one but it wasn’t me. Remember when you bought that cinema giftcard for Auntie Karen? The Harry Potter one? That was me. Yeah, I guess that wasn’t an advert. Honestly Mum, even I’m not sure what I do sometimes. Maybe you’re right, it would’ve been easier to become a footballer. TRYING TO EXPLAIN IT TO MY GRANDMA I create adverts. No, I didn’t create the John Lewis advert. Yes, I know, Mum liked that one too. Ok fine, I created the John Lewis advert. Grandma don’t worry, I’m still working on the footballer thing.
