About Andy Gallant

I am a well-organised, disciplined, creative-thinking copywriter with a strong belief in the power of writing and its ability to combine with graphics to position and sell products and services. With years of experience working across a range of B2C and B2B media, I am used to fathoming out the best way to present products, working from casual scribbles on the back of envelopes to strict and highly detailed written briefs. I am passionate about words and grammar with a particular predilection for the correct use of the possessive apostrophe. I’m happy writing short or long copy from snappy, compelling headlines to well-researched features and editorials. I also possess excellent sub-editing and proofreading skills and a keen appreciation of the design process.
