Francis D.

Communications specialist


Southport, United Kingdom


You will never get just a writing job from me. I bring a complete marketing perspective to everything I do, whether it is part of the brief or not. You don't pay any more for it - it is simply part of the way I approach projects. I have over 30 years experience in all aspects of communications from multi-million pound advertising campaigns to writing sales promotional letters and pretty much everything in between. I have been responsible for analysing markets and planning, conceiving, developing, delivering and evaluating major advertising projects and all associated work. This has often included creative input, ... morecopywriting, feature writing, market research and most aspects of production. My particular strengths are in strategic analysis and planning but I am also a strong creative thinker and writer and have written for most media including the web, TV and radio ads, magazines and leaflets and letters. I have been a technical editor and proofreader and have a good deal of experience in developing creative and editorial products. I am an author and poet in my own right and can provide samples of my work, if necessary. I am interested in any sort of communications project from specific writing assignments to full mutli-channel campaigns (though I am conscious that these are likely to be few and far between). I am available as a communications practitioner (writer), project manager or consultant and don't mind in which capacity I am asked to act. I am also willing to get involved in both small short term and longer term projects. less
