MANAGING DIRECTOR / LIVING GROUP, HONG KONG
I engaged Paul on several projects, including a significant copywriting job for a major client. The ease of working with Paul, and his ability to develop engaging copy (both advertisement and long-form), meant he became our go-to man whenever we required English copywriting support on a client project. I look forward to continuing to work with Paul, and highly recommend him.
MANAGING & CREATIVE DIRECTOR / REACTION,HONG KONG
We all know the hardest thing is to face an empty page. To be creative and enter that first word.
Meet Paul Gordon, copywriter.
It has always amazed me how he works the empty page, miraculously nailing the brief. Paul understands meeting important targets and works around our schedules. Ultimately making it easier for us to move forward with our own work.
Paul is best suited to clients that really want to work with a seasoned writer and draw on his talent and many years of experience.
MANAGING DIRECTOR / TAPESTRY WORKS
Paul always rises to the challenge of developing great copy, concepts and visuals which reflect a sound understanding of the business, as well as truly creative outputs that tell a consistent and compelling story.
I highly recommend Paul for developing communication materials, both written and visual.
