Freelance Copywriters

We’re a busy studio with loads of exciting briefs landing in our hands every week. We develop all kinds of brands to reflect the different characters the drinks industry is bursting with – from the playful to the prestigious, the humorous to the historical, the silly to the sophisticated. We’re looking to broaden our freelance database and to find a host of creative copywriters to ensure we’ve got every tone covered (even the tones we haven’t even thought of yet).

If this sounds right up your street, show off your skills by sending the below to work@thirstcraft.com with the subject line Copywriter Freelance:

  • A relevant portfolio of your work, both commercial and pet projects. In particular, we’re wanting to see any pieces that show strong personality. Any specific food or drinks work is ideal but not essential.
  • An email explaining where you see your strengths as a writer. Be honest, what pieces of work or tones are your favourites to play with and why? Are they for younger or older audiences, edgier or premium brands? What are your firm fortes?
