Meet the Team

I’ve worked with Simon on many projects, from name generation and brand creation projects through to multi-channel ad campaigns. This has taught me that Simon is not just a brilliant freelance copywriter, he’s a fantastic person to have on your side when you need to come up with first rate creative ideas of any kind. You won’t be disappointed.

Whether Simon is taking a detailed brief for a large project or, as more often than not – taking an urgent brief on the mobile – the results not only hit that brief but also surprise and delight, as he consistently knows and delivers on what’s required. A great freelance copywriter and collaborator, he produces brilliant and fresh creative and always goes the extra mile to deliver.

Simon is, in fact, one of the most versatile freelance creatives I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. He can think it. He can write it. He can art direct it. He can photograph it. He can even film and edit it – pretty impressive! The only down side to Simon that I can see, is he’s a northerner.
