2016

Journalist & Writer

Various

Mar 2009 - Mar 2016
  • Working as a freelance writer for numerous magazines and publications, including Plastique, Dazed, Wonderland and Clash.

2014

Freelance Copywriter

Ticckle

May 2012 - Sep 2014
  • Ticckle is a London-based startup that allows people to post video comments on a topic and build a visual debate around them. Rather like Twitter is to social media, Ticckle only allows a 30-second window for you to get your point across. I worked closely with the directors of Ticckle on the overall ToV of the site. The aim was to simply encourage engagement and draw out opinion.

2013

Freelance Copywriter

Generator Bisqit

Sep 2012 - Sep 2013
  • Working alongside the Senior Designer to develop ToV for Generator hostels, in particular their Barcelona and London sites. Copy has been developed for a complete interior re-brand and created for all signage across 8 floors of Generator BCN, as well as in room statutory signage. For Generator LDN a more conceptual approach was taken for the naming and developing of themes for each of the floors, as well as signage. This includes way-finding copy and the naming of hubs within the hostels, including the restaurant area and the bar. This project has also seen me write the food and drink menus for Generator hostels in Copenhagen, Berlin and Hamburg.
