stripping down your brand,

dipping it in honey and rolling it in glitter.

I’M KATHRYN
I make words look nice.
Copywriter, wordsmith, Linguistic Lady Boss, Punctuation Pirate…call it what you like, but essentially I provide words for brands. It’s very straightforward. I listen to you, learn about your brand and what makes it tick, then develop and polish some nice, shiny copy that’ll make your business sparkle.

 FAQ

WHY SHOULD I HIRE YOU?
Well, I’ve had enough lovely feedback from clients and employers over the years to convince me that this is indeed the career for me (as opposed to, say, goat-herding) and I really, truly love it. I’m also quick, creative and have a good eye for detail. If you’re not quite sure what content you want, I can help you work that out as well. If we’re talking about what actually qualifies me to handle the wording of your brand, I graduated from Royal Holloway University of London (is actually in Surrey, don’t be fooled) with a fancy first in English and promptly disappeared around the world posing as a travel writer. Once back in good old London, I was hired as a Junior Copywriter at pioneering fashion house Ted Baker and the rest, as they say, is history. I’ve worked for brands both large and small across web, email, social media, packaging, outdoor ads, vehicle livery, campaigns, in-store collateral and product descriptions of all shapes and persuasions. I’ll also buy the drinks at our first meeting. If that doesn’t sell it I don’t know what will…
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 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, design services 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 neither money nor medicine are my areas of expertise. You might want to look elsewhere for a financial or medical copywriter.

WHERE ARE YOU?

London. But thanks to the miracle of technology I can Skype with you wherever you are in the world.

ISN'T 'KAT' SUPPOSED TO BE SPELLED WITH A 'C'?

No. It’s a pun and a very pleasant one at that.

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 kathryn@copykatcreative.co.uk.

HOW DO YOU TAKE YOUR TEA?

Milky and without complaint.

Bridesmaid Revisited

Last week, my boyfriend asked me if I’d like to be his wife. I was fairly surprised, having nudged him on the topic for a year or so and received a fairly tepid response, I genuinely thought we were a year or so away from it. But low and behold, he took me for a walk...

Birthday Blues

As long as my friends and I can’t have a bloody meal in peace without being harassed simply for being female, as long as I cannot walk home from work at night without fearfully clutching my handbag just a little bit tighter to my body, as long as I am being paid less than my male counterpart, as long as it is actually legal for a company to force you to wear high heels, as long as we are STILL having to explain what “consent” means, as long as the top jobs are still going to boys instead of girls for insufficient reasons, as long as women are being beaten up and killed in their own homes by their own boyfriends, then yes. We do still have a fucking problem.
