Experienced Entrepreneurial Copy Writer

Netherlands - Last active: 03/24/2014 - Portfolio: 3

Simplicity is key. For me, writing means stripping every sentence clean from all words redundant. Evere single word in each sentence needs to serve a function. I consider creative writing and writing copy similar to product design. The goal is not to add until there is nothing left to add anymore. Rather, the goal is to achieve sentences when there is nothing left to take away. You want the message to be simple and clear - so your target audience doesn't get lost in 'translation'. If you are looking for a highly educated writer with experience and abstract reasoning capabilities - look no further. You just the right guy. PS: Please note that I am all about clear and transparant communication. I prefer talking with clients first over Skype. The reason is simple: I'll get a much better understanding of what you want to achieve by establishing a fun and clear dialogue.
