PAUL FRASER, British Copywriter








PAUL BEST, British Art Director






JAKE RUSZNYAK, British Art Director
I am passionate about simple ideas, above, below or through-the-line. I like to boil concepts down to their simplest form. I suppose that’s because I trained as a graphic designer, I love posterised thoughts and to craft ideas and typography. I am a bit of a perfectionist, and I do all my own work up on the mac myself, since I find I have more control, and the art direction can evolve quickly. I am relatively quiet, because I like to let the work speak for me.


MARTIJN DE VREEZE, Dutch copywriter
As a copywriter I am focused on the interaction between brand and target group. That not only requires an impact-full concept and catchy copy, but also the capability to build bridges. That’s what I try to accomplish in my work. How I work? People who know me call me an enthusiastic, open minded professional. A typical through the line copywriter, who, in every kind of job, strives for the perfect and most creative result. I have worked for very diverse clients including Digitenne, OLA and Mascotte nationally, as well as international names like Motorola, Remington and Nissan.
