When I lived in Texas in the very early 2000’s, I worked for a direct marketing company in their digital media division, primarily doing web-based advertising, viral ad campaigns, landing pages… that sort of thing. We worked with companies like SBC, Yahoo! and Sony and it was where I really cut my teeth and learned the most about all this new-fangled web business. Despite the occasional long hours and typical corporate environment, I really loved that job.
What I loved most about the job, though, were the people! My dear friend, G.W…. excuse me, George, was a fabulous copywriter at said company and I thoroughly enjoyed working on the other side of the fabric cubicle wall from him. He made it more fun to go to work every day. After I left Texas in 2003, George relocated to Oregon, and recently has expanded his freelance copywriting business, launching a new group venture, Winborn and Company.
Winborn and Company provides branding and copywriting services to Portland and beyond. I can say from experience that George writes great copy—lively and smart with great focus on the target audience. And while copywriting remains the core of his business, he’s branched out with new services, as well. George gave a great explanation in an email announcement this morning:
After five years of running a one-man copywriting shop, I’ve rebranded and added a Brand Discovery Process to my practice. Now I’m helping business leaders get to the essence of what they do, why they do it, and how they can do it better. I’ve dubbed it “Business Therapy,” because businesses emerge from it with a new lease on life. This includes a renewed look, feel and voice for their brand, as well as copy for their website and marketing efforts. It helps leaders articulate their long- and short-term goals and reveals the business’s purpose to the greater community.
Check out their website—they offer a really helpful Twitter guide on the homepage for those super-new to Twitter and want to know how to tweet like a cool kid. I’ll definitely be recommending that!
I heartily recommend Winborn and Company for copywriting and brand development. George is whip-smart, talented and has smashing fashion sense. How can you go wrong?
Congratulations to George Winborn and his team. The Moxie Girls wish you every success!
