I can also help corporate clients with marketing, customer communication and advertising.

The Argos catalogue is one the largest home shopping catalogues in the world. I wrote many high tech buying guides and sales pages for electronics, PCs, gadgets and more. I wrote much of content for the Almanac section of Nokia Conversations, the official Nokia blog. It required extensive research into old ringtones and new gadgets.

I wrote this compact advertorial for Ford Mondeo and CNET UK, focusing on the similarities between the Mondeo's cutting edge safety systems - and PC security software.
