Hi, I'm an experienced copywriter who loves creating work that works. I collaborate with agencies and brands to help translate authentic stories into compelling experiences (both online and offline) that capture the hearts and minds of their customers. My focus is on making brands more human so that they can properly engage and thrive in this ever changing environment.

I am passionate about people, social media and technology, and have been studying many things web-related since 1995.

Specialties:
Copywriting, Concept development, Creative Direction, Advertising, Brand Strategy, Direct Marketing, Social Media.

I'm comfortable with all media (online and offline) using global, US or UK English.

I work for companies around the globe and would love to chat about your next project. Skype me on "willroffe", email me at will@copyyoufeel.com or call +64 21 956 911.

Given I am based in New Zealand, the exchange rate is most likely heavily in your favour (in the UK) and favor (in the US).

Cheers, Will
