Copywriting is the last thing you’ll catch me doing. Because if you want words that really hit home, you first need to find your tone of voice, understand your audience, and work out exactly what you want to say. I can help you with that.
Fullstopnewparagraph is me, Jon Ryder, and I’ve been in the writing business for over 20 years. Trained as a journalist, but with the conscience of a genuine human being, I write copy that people like reading.
I’ve written for major consumer brands like Mars and Nissan, charities including The MS Society and The Trussell Trust, and global names like Google, Arup and McKinsey. The bulk of my work is tone of voice, often rolling out into websites, video scripts, advertising and digital marketing.
I’ve worked for a range of creative agencies across London, including OPX, Signal Noise, Multiadaptor, She Was Only, BEARLondon, Set Reset, Magpie and Campbell Hay. I’m always looking for new projects, so if you’re interested in working together, drop me a line.
