Finnebrogue Woods website: This was an interesting copywriting project from a couple of years ago, which I really enjoyed working on. The content had to evoke the magical setting of this atmospheric location, as well as conveying all of the key information for customers.

Finnebrogue Woods,

I was delighted to work with the team at the Old Bushmills Distillery earlier this year (2018) to develop content for the bottle tube packaging and labelling of the new limited edition Distillery Exclusive whiskey.

It was great to meet with master distiller, Colum Egan, and his colleagues to find out about the meticulous process involved in creating the new blend and just what makes it as special as it is… This was also a particularly lovely project to work on because, as a resident in the Bushmills area myself, it was great to write for such an established and renowned local brand, which is at the heart of the Bushmills community.

When the City of Derry Equestrian Centre decided to design a new brochure outlining City of Derry Equestrian Centreits core activities I was approached to create the written content for this (which was subsequently also put online).

As someone who loves animals, the countryside and painting pictures with words, I really enjoyed this project, conjuring up images of the rolling landscapes the riders can visit on hacks and bringing the story of the centre to life.

Another interesting project to work on at the start of 2018 involved writing branding content for Longbridge Drinks Co’s new Belfast Ginger Ale, which was launched soon after.

A new trading style of Papas Mineral Co, Longbridge Drinks Co was keen to developlongbridge drinks engaging content that would convey the fascinating story behind the original Belfast Ginger Ale. They also wanted to explain why they were bringing this iconic drink back to Belfast and to share a little about the story behind their brand name.

This was an interesting project as I had to do a bit of research into Belfast’s Long Bridge and the ale, as well as come up with a fun, quirky tone for the content.

Nuprint Technologies Ltd is a specialist commercial label printing company based in Derry which works with all sorts of local and global brands and is constantly investing in innovation.

I was delighted to work with Gavin and Laura from the company to develop and write the content for their new website, which I think looks really great with the fresh design and high-spec photography.

They both really understood the value of investing in a copywriter to create high-quality content for the site, which was wonderful as often, written content gets overlooked in favour of design when in fact, it is the written content which gets people to your website, helps to sell your business and is crucial for telling your story and connecting with customers.

This is a great company doing exciting things in the north west and beyond and it was great to help them tell their business story. Visit the Nuprint website here: https://nuprintuk.com/

“Thank you so much for all your work Claire. You did an amazing job and I’m glad we had the chance to work together. You’ve been a huge part of putting it all together!” – Jenna McCorkell, owner, Chique Sport.

In February 2017, Claire was contacted by the 11-times British Figure Skating champion, Jenna McCorkell, who needed help in developing content for her new business, Chique Sport. Jenna was in the process of getting an e-commerce website designed and required editorial support in writing quality, optimised content for this.

Having already designed her initial range of luxury women’s sportswear – with children’s garments also available – Jenna still needed to develop product names for the collections. Detailed product descriptions were also required for each garment, with further content required for the website holding page and for general promotional uses.

After initial discussions over the phone, Claire then met with Jenna for brainstorming sessions and to gather all the necessary information to develop and write the content. Jenna was very keen that the Chique Sport brand should have a strong identity – that it would convey quality, luxury and reliability, but would also be seen as very stylish and functional. She also wanted the content to reflect her fun and vibrant personality – that it would sound like her and be relaxed and not too formal.

Claire worked closely with Jenna to ensure that she had a thorough understanding of the ethos behind Chique Sport. This ensured that the correct brand image was portrayed in the content and that it reflected Jenna’s personality and values, while also being functional.

Having spent years researching fabrics and developing designs for her products, it was important to Jenna that the content conveyed to the customer the effort put into creating the brand. Indeed, as a successful sportswoman with a global profile, it was key to get the right message across. Chique Sport wasn’t about Jenna ‘cashing in’ on her name – it was a genuine business selling high-quality gear which had been years in the making.

Claire developed a variety of product names for the individual garments and the collections, liaising with Jenna on multiple occasions before reaching a final decision on these. She also wrote all the product descriptions and the final website content, which Jenna thought reflected the Chique Sport brand perfectly and which was completed in time for the launch of the brand at the World Figure Skating Championships in Helsinki in March 2017.
