Pencil agency announces the addition of Jess Cartner-Morley to their team as a brilliant copywriter.
Jess has been putting the zeitgeist into words for over two decades. From ankle boots to avocados, Balenciaga to Botox, from what to wear to a festival to the inflatable flamingo you need on your Instagram feed, Jess has nailed every trend you ever needed to know about. She is Associate Editor (Fashion) at The Guardian, where she was crowned the UK’s Fashion Journalist of the Year in 2018. But when she’s not writing for the Guardian, she now brings the know-how of two decades on the front row to producing stylish, must-have copywriting and content for brands.
Pencil pioneered the idea of couture content creation many moons ago. As a creative agency, it specialises in storytelling for brands, helping form meaningful written, visual and strategic narratives, from creating 360 global campaigns to seasonal content planning, branding, film making, print, digital and events. The essence of its success is in placing the customer at the heart of any communications to ensure the idea resonates, no matter how big or small.
Writers who understand commerce, who can be nimble in their tone of voice and who can place themselves as the customer are key to successful content creation and winning copy writing. We do our best to bring this wisdom to the conversations brands are aspiring to have across their channels with their customer, in a meaningful manner, helping them engage and connect. It is thrilling, therefore, to have Jess as a pencil.
"The written word should be as compelling as great conversation, and at Pencil it is,” says Jess. “I am super excited to be working with Jenny and the brilliant team at Pencil, who lead the field in creating content that is beautiful, sharp and a pleasure to read."
