Copywriter

We are an integrated creative agency, working to drive desire for some of the world’s best- known fashion and lifestyle brands.

We care about the way things look, as do our clients and their customers. But it can’t start and stop there, or it would be one-dimensional. So, we create immersive brand worlds and stories, deeply rooted in insight and behaviour that deliver tangible results.

Our team of 40+ based across our London, New York & Sydney offices are a multi-disciplinary bunch who are passionate about delivering beautiful work that works.

You will also be able to provide examples & guidance to in-house client teams as to how the campaign copy flexes across owned retail (POS) & social/digi channels.

You will be adept in scribing witty, insightful & fresh copy with a British TOV to engage a core target audience of 35+ UK mums - covering headlines, end lines, body copy & product descriptors. The ability to input conceptually, crafting TV/film scripts & TOV guidelines would also be an advantage.
