A freelance copywriter from Nettleton has been shortlisted for a national award after working for a string of well-known household brands.
Stu Caine is in the running to win ‘freelancer of the year’ at The Majors - the new creative industry awards.
The talented writer beat hundreds of other copywriters, designers and illustrators to make it to the final - and is the only freelancer in his category that lives outside of the London area.
During the past 12 months Stu has worked on lots of campaigns from global banks and department stores to travel companies and TV channels.
He said: “It’s funny to think that I work on all these big budget campaigns, often in secret, all from my little Nettleton studio.”
And Stu believes his nomination has as much to do with how he presents himself as it does with his work.
He said: “Working on big, well-known brands has obviously helped secure my place, but I also have one of the best logos going – not to mention a silly showreel which features my very own theme tune rap.
“Having the whole package definitely grabs people’s attention and has opened doors to all sorts of new and exciting opportunities.”
The awards have been created to recognise and celebrate excellence in creative, marketing and digital – aiming to reward the work of individuals and companies who have delivered outstanding results over the last year.
Judges for the awards include industry experts from the likes of Facebook, Google and John Lewis.
The winners will be announced at a ceremony in London on October 1.
