About Tim Gill Copywriting

SO YOU NEED A COPYWRITER?

Tim Gill is a freelance copywriter who has spent his entire professional life in and around advertising and marketing.

With over 30 years' experience, he has handled every imaginable type of copy project - from the sublime (an all expenses paid trip to Bali to write the Hyatt Hotel's brochure) to the ridiculous (an award-winning, surreal series of radio ads for Seven Seas Multivitamins.)

Over his career he has worked with several ad agencies in the UK and spent 3 years with international agencies in the Far East. This culminated in his appointment as Creative Director at MDA Mojo in Singapore with responsibility for Qantas Airways Pacific Rim and several other multinational clients.

On his return to the UK, Tim opted for the freedom of freelance writing and soon developed a wide portfolio of clients in a diverse range of industry sectors. Over the past 5 years he has tended to specialise in long copy assignments (such as brochures, websites and journalistic projects) that often require research and a deep understanding of the subject matter.

Much of his work today is for international and European based clients where projects are undertaken and serviced almost exclusively on a remote basis via telephone and email.

A FEW KIND WORDS …

“I’ve worked with Tim on numerous brochure copywriting projects for Lexus Europe. Probably the most challenging to date was a high-end brand book for the new Lexus LFA V10 supercar. Working to a tight deadline with Dentsu Brussels, within three weeks we’d produced a premium communications tool that was sent out to future owners of this 375,000 Euro car. All 500 cars have since been sold and subsequently the brochure team received praise from Lexus headquarters in Japan.”

David J. Thompson, Copywriter, Hamburg

“Tim is a valued member of the Lexus brochure copywriting team. He has a sharp eye for detail especially when it comes to tone of voice writing, and can always be relied on to deliver even when deadlines are tight.”

Colin Walker, Lexus Europe Account Manager, Dentsu Brussels

“We were delighted with the results of your hard work, and I must thank you for the speed and efficiency with which you completed the Ritz copywriting project despite the very tight deadlines set.”

Ruth Jones – Director of Sales & Marketing – The Ritz, London

“Over several years working with Tim on Lexus & Toyota (between 2001 and 2007) he has always taken great pride in delivering copywriting that nicely blends product features and consumer benefits with the right brand tone of voice. Additionally, he is fast, flexible and very dependable.”

Luca Neyroz, Managing Partner (2007) Dentsu Brussels
