ENGLISH CONCEPTUAL AND CREATIVE COPYWRITING.

BY MATTHEW BOSTOCK.


I believe that good copy results from good thinking. Thinking that considers the entire creative puzzle. Underlying business objectives. Synergies in format. Emotional context. Only then can you arrive at something that moves people: a story with strategic bones.

I'm a senior concept-driven copywriter and content strategist based in Berlin. Originally from Britain, I moved to Germany for the weather. I know how to interpret a brief and come up with curious solutions to problems. I also know how to execute on a number of levels to see an original concept through to final production and delivery.

Before going freelance six years ago, I was Product Marketing Manager at Wunderlist. That was acquired by Microsoft. I was then Community and Content Lead at Readmill. That was acquired by Dropbox. Before all that I made music and was commisioned to work on adverts for Adidas, Lacoste, Axe and others.

SELECT WORK

THE NORTH FACE



The brief: Refresh copywriting style, tone and structure for the launch of the 2016 Fall collection. Make emotional connections with readers by giving product descriptions more of a lifestyle edge.

My take: Wireframe a new layout for The North Face website to allow stories to unfold more cleanly. Create benefit-driven copy that reflects exploration and puts readers at the heart of the action.





MONTBLANC



The brief: Write Instagram posts to engage with more than half a million followers. Tell the emotional writing stories of hand-selected ambassadors and influencers.

My take: Read through influencer input and create stories that approach the topic of writing from an unusual angle. Use abstract headlines and playful wording to hold the reader's interest.





HYUNDAI



The brief: Introduce Hyundai's new electric car to the general public in a way that priortises human emotions and aspirations over technology. Use language that is natural and friendly.

My take: Write three interactive content journeys that explain the benefits of the car by way of relatable examples. It's less about what the car is, and more about what it can do for you.





AIRBUS



The brief: Write regular pieces for the company's award-winning print publication, On Air Magazine. Inteview staff and report on civilian, military and aerospace developments without being dull.

My take: Place the facts inside a surprising yet easy-to-understand narrative that paints pictures and demystifies technology. Use a playful style to make learning a little less boring.
