• The right words in the right order can do great things.

Making words do nifty things.

I've got my copy-ridden fingers in many wordy pies.
Confident in writing for the web and print, I create original, clean copy across a range of copywriting services.

Whether you're looking to craft an identity and voice for your brand, communicate with your customers or drive more traffic your way, I know how to suit words up and make them work for you.

I've collaboratively worked alongside design studios, ad agencies, marketing moguls and arts and culture organisations to produce clear, inspirational copy that binds creative concepts with considered, succinct objectives.

Distil is me...

Me is Nicola Evans.

I'm a freelance copywriter (prefer wordsmith) based in Glasgow, Scotland.
Being an award-winning screenwriter, yes I'm boasting, means I've always seen the stories behind folk and what they want to say.
I reckon that no matter what the medium, brief or platform, using the perfect words in the best possible way can create a story, a natural communication between people, their ideas and the rest of the world.

I've worked with a rainbow of clients from architects to vintage proprietors and galleries to charities. Whether you're after creative concepts and strategy, a spot of branding or some SEO smarts and marketing, each project is approached with the unique needs of the client in mind.

  


Oh, I'm also a Blue Peter badge holder.

We dig deeper. By studying your customer we can think like them, not just mirror them. We see both the science behind performance and the emotion behind the experience, so that we design for the person as a human, not a user archetype modelled only on data. Our expertise lies in filtering the actionable from our observations and letting it fuel our solution.
