How can I help you?
I read somewhere along the line that it’s the most important question one can ever ask… and I’ve been asking it ever since.
- Creative content – copy and photography
- Design-biased creative copy
- Creative direction
- Traditional copywriting for print and web
- Both long copy and short copy – unusual, I know
- Female-focused copy (writing for women)
- Diversity and accessibility positive copy
- Ghost blogging
- Scripting for animation and film
- Creative campaign planning and social media strategy*
- Digital scoping
- In-house copywriting service (Bristol and London by arrangement)
* agency partners only.
I do other stuff too. If you’re wondering – and it’s not rude – why not ask me about your off-piste project?
But am I good to work with?
“Sharp, quick to absorb detail, and best of all, has a delivery hyperdrive which gets results back to us almost as soon as we’ve turned around. Couple all this to a creative mind with a sense of humour, and you’ve got a sense of the pleasure it is to work with Ray.”
Mike Zeidler, Director, Happy City Initiative.
“Ray’s a joy to work with. Asks the right questions. Understands the subtleties of tone of voice and editorial style – in my book, the essential skill for a writer. Really does her homework too. I know (and there’s the clincher) that the copy Ray writes will be on brief, perfectly pitched, delivered on time and right first time.”
Justin Ballantine, Head of Creative, ThirtyThree.
“Ray’s intelligent approach to creative and infectious enthusiasm for her craft is a heady mix to bring to any brief. The speed she can start hitting you with ideas – whether working across the desk from you, or from her creative lair – is consistently quick and reassuringly top-drawer stuff.”
Olly Whitman, Design Director, Studio Six.
“Ray is a pleasure to work with. She delivers great results, on time and to brief and is a brilliant free and creative thinker. Has been a godsend and will always use when I can.”
Rachelle Corker, Account Director, Armadillo.
“Ray is a vital part of the Wheathill team. She really gets our company – who we are, and how we want to present ourselves to the world. Proactive, but never pushy, she’s an absolute godsend.”
Rona Smith, Owner, Wheathill.
“Ray is one of the most creative and adaptable copywriters I have ever worked with, her ability to write at a high technical level for a B2B audience and then switch to a highly creative B2C project or response to a tender is unmatched for me so far in working with various copywriters.”
Jessica Ellis, Business Development Director.
“Ray worked with us over a period of years, and I heartily recommend her copywriting skills and personable way of working to others. She pulled stories out of what we were doing and shaped them to suit our differing audiences and made the process interesting and enjoyable.”
Anna Traylor, The Design Programme.
“Ray is undoubtedly a bright, enthusiastic and engaging person. A very creative copywriter, she brings absolute dedication and passion to her work. Of particular importance is her increasing knowledge around social media. I have no hesitation in recommending her.”
Roger Proctor MBE, Proctor + Stevenson.
“Some people make the working world a better place. Ray is one of those people. Her infectious enthusiasm, well-aimed creativity and collaborative approach make her a joy to work with. A talented writer and strategic thinker, she produces concepts that have engagement at their heart.”
Ian Bates, CD, The Real Adventure.
