I'm Simon Anderson – Copywriter and Creative Collaborator

Simonand is all about collaborating with people to produce seriously creative and effective integrated marketing concepts and copy. I’m a Leeds copywriter living in Harrogate who works closely with online and offline creatives, agencies and direct clients in Leeds, Yorkshire and Manchester – anyone who can appreciate how 25 years’ experience in marketing can deliver impressive results for their campaigns and boost bottom lines.

I’m a digital copywriter and advertising copywriter who is capable of taking even the flimsiest of briefs and conjuring up award-winning results that deliver excellent ROI.

As a Leeds copywriter, I have collaborated with some incredibly bright art directors, copywriters, planners and account handlers at Top 50 advertising and digital agencies in Yorkshire and Manchester on a myriad of national and local clients.

Concepts and copy by the hour or day

By the hour or day, I am available to work on or off-site, more often than not at a moment’s notice. So if you have a copywriting project you wish to discuss, call me on 07909 500 714 or email

Photography and video, too

Having spent years training in advertising and design, I’m not only a highly visual copywriter – often designing as I write – I also have a great eye for composition and capturing moments digitally. So in addition to copywriting, I also specialise in shooting events, faces and places.

Unsurprisingly, an increasing number of my social media clients are finding my copywriting and photography proposition extremely attractive as I can bring an extra visual dimension to their social media pages and feeds. For example, at a high profile three day event for Taylors Coffee at ExCel London, I not only captured the interaction between Taylors staff and customers sampling Taylors Coffee photographically and delivered the shots instantly to encourage attendance via social media, I also recorded the event in 1080i hi-definition video. I then edited a video, sourced music and delivered a short film of the day which was then posted to their Twitter and Facebook feeds and hosted on their YouTube channel.

Meet the Team

The work he has done for me for Yorkshire Tea and Taylors Coffee – copywriting, blogging, social media content, photography and video – required a great deal of creativity and collaborations. He is consistently top-notch no matter which format. Smart, fun to work with, and a 100% safe pair of hands.

Simon impressed me so much in a brainstorm that I married him – well, it wasn’t for his looks was it and he did ask me out by email. The git.

I have worked with Simon at two agencies: Stowe Bowden Wilson and Principles. Simon is one of those rare breeds that always comes up with stunning ideas. His strategic thinking is second to none and his ability to find the right solution time and time again is scary. This mixed with him being one of the good guys and fun to work with makes him ideal to have in your team.
