What the devil is The Smashing Workshop?

The Smashing Workshop is, essentially, all about words. There are a lot of words, aren't there? In fact, there's about a quarter of a million of the blighters in everyday use, and that's just in the English language.
I can't help you with any of the others (my knowledge of German is less than spitze and my command of French has seen better jours) but as a copywriter I know a thing or two about English, and I'm all too aware of how the power of words alone can either ruin a project or see it achieve greatness.
So, yes: I'm a copywriter. You'd be forgiven for thinking that I just write copy. Of course, I do write copy (my days would be pretty empty if I didn't!) but that doesn't accurately cover everything that goes on here at the workshop.
Alongside basic copywriting duties I also carry out research, create promotional videos, help optimize websites to get them as high up the search rankings as possible... Basically, anything that involves the transition between a vague idea to communicating it effectively to a target audience.
The project at hand can involve just about any subject going* - I've written detailed copy on how to knit a scarf having never touched a pair of knitting needles, helped create a Muslim dating site despite being neither Muslim nor single and successfully interviewed a massive U.S rap star even though I can't abide urban music. Research is a huge part of my work and I'm proud of the unique, accurate and effective results I produce.

The Smashing Workshop is my online home, and I'm incredibly glad to have you here. Help yourself to biscuits!
* Like everyone, there's some stuff I can't do - rather than be one of those bullshit artists who plague the copywriting industry by promising unrealistic results, I'll tell you straight up if I'm not the copywriter for you. If that ever happens to be the case, I can usually put you in touch with trusted professionals who may be able to help and pull ties to get you a good rate (free of charge from my end and with no obligation.)
