Oh hello – did you come here looking for my copywriting & marketing portfolio?

Great news! Here's a bunch of stuff I made using only scissors, sellotape, and a high-performance laptop

An irreverent video advert for The English Practice

Language training provider The English Practice came to me looking for a video to help them promote their services.

I came up with a concept based around tea, wrote the script, voiced it, sourced the appropriate audiovisual assets, then produced the finished piece you see here.

So sit down, make yourself a cup of tea (with milk, obviously), and press play ▶.

On LinkedIn it has both the highest number of interactions of anything I have shared and the highest ratio of interactions to views.

A website for ProperGate

Construction logistics startup ProperGate needed a website to help market their B2B SaaS product to a complex target audiences.

I helped them to develop their brand story and core messaging, and based on this created the wireframes and copy for a multi-page website, which was then realised by a graphic designer and web developer.

You can find the live site here.

A book for Rafał Motriuk

Radio journalist Rafał Motriuk needed help publishing a book based on a blog he’d written about the journey he and his wife went through in raising their autistic son.

I edited the book at a structural and copy level, guided Rafał through the various publishing decisions, and ultimately helped him bring it to market. 

It’s available on Amazon (4.6⭐)  – and you can read a sample here.

 

Neil was brilliant. I mean every stage had so many considerations – things that you would never think of  and he just seemed to know all of it.

A website for The English Practice

The English Practice, a Warsaw-based company offering English language courses for professionals, came to me asking for help developing a website. 

Through a number of sessions discussing the demographics of previous clients, and where the business wanted to go. From this I developed the messaging, layout, and copy, which the business used to build its website.

Check out the live website.

Neil has been fantastic in helping me to redesign my website – friendly, professional and with the knowledge of marketing and online media to back it up.

I helped him to develop his understanding of his audience and services, and based on that developed the messaging, wireframe, and copy, which he then implemented himself.

Very cool service and I like the format. He’s got an authentic natural ability to present interesting ideas and concepts. I totally see him working on TV!
