Tom Reas

  • Conceptual Creative. Copywriter.
  • Freelance

Copy and concepts are my bag,
I can't draw for toffee.
Although given the right toffee
I'll be sure to give it a shot.

With photography in my blood (thanks Dad),
logic of course sent me in the direction of copywriting.
But this doesn’t stop me from having an opinion on how things look.

I work in advertising so that my relentless ‘faffing’ gets me paid,
rather than arrested.

In cahoots with Liam Riddler.
