Bernie Watt, Copywriter

NICE TO MEET YOU

G'day

I'm Bernie Watt

I’m a Conceptual Copywriter from Brisbane, Australia. I’ve been working in advertising for over eight years and  living in NYC on a Green Card for the last three. I’ve delivered award winning ideas for FMCG/Packaged Goods, alcohol, education, B2B, government, sports marketing, health and finance with some recognized at shows like Cannes, Spikes Asia and The Webbys. If you like what you see or just want to grab a coffee, give me a call on +1 917 775 3361 or email berniewattcreative@gmail.com.

WHAT I BRING

Sure, I write copy, but that's only the start.

Copywriting and Concept Generation 99%
Digital Photography and Video 87%
Wordpress 64%
Social Media 85%
Creative Direction 72%

TVC/broadcast scripts, long copy, brand manifestos, tweets, I can write in three languages – American, Australian and human.

After years working agencies big and small, I’ve learned to be a self-starter, a problem solver and someone who delivers each and every time.

I’m comfortable presenting and selling in ideas to clients, whether one on one or in pitch situations.

Imagine someone who is happy using music and video production software, who can shoot photos and video and create decks. I can do these things and more.

I am comfortable working with Adobe Premiere Pro,  Photoshop, Audition, ProTools, Reason and can bumble through basic After Effects and click and replace copy into InDesign to help Art Directors before pitches.
