Copywriting + blog writing for a full-service creative marketing agency.
An up and coming soap company in NYC desired to transform their voice from conventional to personal, from Tony who takes himself too seriously to Wendy who whimsically wins the crowds. With the goal to attract and represent young audiences with large ambitions and an against-the-grain culture, social media played a large role in the company's voice rebrand. Whipping up words for each of their products, I developed the social copy for their Instagram account, declaring originality and attracting attention from Instagram's community of 800 million monthly users.
Product Copy Examples:
Bergamot candle - Don’t know what Bergamot is? Save the Googling for more important things (like Beyonce’s net worth) and come by our store to learn more.

A creative agency is a like a dysfunctional family that owns a crazy family business. Every member of the family business has an important job to do, important relationships to keep healthy, and important Saturday night arrangements to attend to let out all the steam. An agency blog is like the family fish bowl in the background that never gets cleaned, and too little fed, amidst the creative chaos. Pulse Creative forgot to clean their fish bowl for 4 years. Even the to-do list item "revamp the blog" was starting to grow mold. To encourage the revitalization of Pulse Creative's blog, I compiled a database of article ideas for blog revamp, researched ideal agency blogs for inspiration, and wrote an article for the agency to submit for reprint to other websites, drawing attention towards the revival of "The Pulse".
