Meet Sophie – our new creative copywriter.

February 4th, 2015 / Stephanie Goodman

A new year means new additions to the Together Agency team.

We’ve already introduced you to our wonderful art worker, Dave and senior designer, Sean and now it’s the turn for our shiny new copywriter, Sophie. With a wealth of copy writing experience, we’ve asked Sophie a range of questions so that we can get to know her a little better.

Sophie

Where did you study?
I studied English Literature at the University of Sheffield. I had to read Story of the Eye in one module and it scarred me for life, but the rest was great.

What do you love about writing?

Ooh. I don’t know… There are so many possibilities in writing, and I love how something as simple as an exclamation mark or a rogue capital letter can completely change someone’s understanding of a sentence – and that understanding will be totally different depending on the audience.

Writing is a bit like playing word Tetris, spinning different words in all different ways and figuring out how they work to make them fit into something great. The part where you don’t fit them together properly and it’s game over is obviously writer’s block. Can’t believe I made that metaphor work.

If you could choose one book or blog that sums up your life, what would it be?
I can’t think of an entire book but the first few paragraphs of Jerome K Jerome’s Three Men In a Boat about him being an absolutely chronic hypochondriac is me all over. WebMD is my nemesis.

Three random facts about you.

Sophie's also a fan of dinosaurs. We thought she would love this.

1. I love knitting
2. I’m convinced my cat can say the word ‘milk’
3. I’m trypophobic (which essentially means I’m scared of random collections of small holes like in sponges and honeycomb and poppy seed heads and stuff ugh

30 second brief: Come up with a catchy advertising title and tag line for this image.

Holy petroleum!

There are some places you really don’t want to run out of gas. The sky’s one of ’em.

For an awareness campaign to remind people it isn’t safe to run your car low on petrol. Right!?

 

Some epic answers in this. We hope you all enjoyed our little interrogation into our new copywriter.

Welcome to the team, Sophie!
