stripping down your brand,
dipping it in honey and rolling it in glitter.
LOST FOR WORDS?
Let’s find you some.
Not to be confused with those who study copyright (I really can’t help you patent your milk chocolate caricature business idea), copywriters are those gnarly creatures who furnish your brand with the right words to make it sparkle. I’m Kathryn and I’ve written brand narrative for everything from designer athleisure and handmade sofas, to tea and organic vegetables. Give me your brand: I want to play with it.
WHY SHOULD I HIRE YOU?
I’m a flexible, imaginative copywriter who’s all about the big ideas. I’m great under pressure and love to get things right. I’m a hoot in brainstorming sessions, but I also know when to shut up and listen to a brief. Also: I’m good. I’m really good. But if you don’t believe me (and at this stage, why would you?) then ask for a little sample of my copy. I try not to spend all my time writing for free, but am always happy to give you a sample of what I can do that’s relevant to your brand.
WHO ELSE HAS HIRED YOU?
Lots of nice people. Ted Baker, Tesco, Virgin Media, Loaf Homewares, FitFlop, Coles Australia, Audio Network, Abel & Cole, The Body Shop, notonthehighstreet.com, Bloom & Wild, Wonderbly (formerly Lost My Name), Dunelm, MOO.com and my own mother. Take a look at my portfolio for the full skinny on what I did for these clients.
SO YOUR AREAS OF EXPERTISE ARE...?
Retail, fashion, homewares, pretty products, food & drink, photographers, film & TV and the wedding industry (if anything, I’m overqualified to write about weddings. I’ve been a bridesmaid NINE times).
WHAT DON'T YOU DO?
Not much. But I don’t love writing for medical brands.
WHERE ARE YOU?
I split my time between London and South Devon. I have houses in both (I told you I was good).
ISN'T 'KAT' SUPPOSED TO BE SPELLED WITH A 'C'?
Yes. What’s your point?
HOW MUCH WILL THIS COST ME?
My day rate is £300 but for smaller projects I would always encourage you to drop me a line to discuss your budgetary needs on firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOW DO YOU TAKE YOUR TEA?
Milky and without complaint.
When it comes to bridesmaid careers, there are few to rival mine for sheer variety. Lucky Number Ten (I've clocked up NINE turns on this rodeo) is scheduled for next July – a month after my own nuptials – at the wedding of two of my favourite people, Liz and James. I...read more
