ABOUT

Copywriter with awards in short film and advertising and broad experience at agencies such as Jung von Matt, TBWA Paris and Sapient London.

I like working in any channel, as long as an idea’s involved.

Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings I do dialysis from 18.00. So I finish off at 17.00 on those days but I can work remotely from 18.30. For some reason, during dialysis I get quite interesting thoughts.

Try me and see.

Other skills: art direction, Photoshop/ InDesign, fluent German, ok French, music composition, chess and keeping my eBay habit under control.

Thanks for having a look round.

REFERENCES

"In the 20 years of Jung von Matt, many creative talents have joined and left the agency. Maybe 10% of them I will always remember. And from those I will always remember, there is another 10% whose excellent work I will never forget. Alex belongs to this last group. He did a great job here and I really enjoyed working with him. Therefore we were sad to hear he would leave – but also a little bit proud to see him succeed in London, the birthplace of creative excellence." 
Jean-Remy von Matt, joint owner, Jung von Matt


"Alex has worked with us on a variety of freelance assignments.He has produced concise, impactful creative across digital, print and video, both in long and short form. He likes pushing briefs to arrive at original, unexpected solutions."
Massimo Portincasso. Global Marketing Director, The Boston Consulting Group


"Alex is creative, imaginative, leftfield, lateral, conceptual and prolific. As such, he is an asset to any agency. He loves big ideas and is able to think well beyond traditional media to get the most out of these ideas. An all round good egg."
Chas Bayfield, Creative Director, JWT London


"I've worked with Alex a couple of times and appreciated every job. Once started, it's really hard to stop his creative energy and he is always delivering far more than expected. It's a real pleasure."
