Copywriter
Ogilvy

After experience in regional and national newspapers, Katie decided that journalism just wasn't for her. She answered a competition brief and won a placement at Wunderman as a copywriter. Then followed a brief stint in PR. She finally found a job that suited her love of creative writing when she joined Brand Advocate in 2009 where she joined up with Keeley Ashdown. The duo worked together at Publicis London and Agency Republic before coming to Ogilvy in 2013. They’ve been working together and eating all things lemon-flavoured for over seven years. They’ve worked on all kinds of different brands, from deodorant and mobile phones, to gin and cars. And across everything from social and digital, to experiential, TV and press. 

Brands the duo have worked on include Boots, Samsung, Dove, Coca-Cola, British Airways, American Express, Land Rover, Hendrick’s Gin, Department of Health, Louis Vuitton, Nescafe, Renault, BT, Huggies, Philips, Malibu, Bupa, Allianz, Tourism Ireland, Hewlett Packard, The Sun, Hellmann's, Viktor & Rolf, Sprite, The Co-operative, Oral-B, Airbus, Selfridges, IBM, Monkey Shoulder, Star Alliance, Tropicana, British Gas and Nivea.
