Doug Crossley

Copywriter / Scriptwriter / Trainer

What do you call a man with a spade on his head?

Doug: A man who developed a sense of humour because love to tell him that joke.

I’m a senior copywriter, with a penchant for comedy and I specialise in scriptwriting. I’ve got a sharp eye for digital and social and I love a quirky brief. Experienced in everything from massive 360* campaigns down to the specifics. Highly skilled at making bulky copy feel human. Check out my portfolio... Brands from Barclays to BA, Nestlé to Nature Valley, and Cheerios to charity.

5+ years experience of contracts ranging from one-day to over a year. In massive agencies, tiny production companies and direct to client. Agencies include McCann London & Paris, FCB Inferno, Sapient Nitro, VCCP Kin and Design Bridge. Production companies include: Hoot Comedy, The Edge Picture Company, Casual Films.

I’m also a BAFTA Rocliffe winning screenwriter and my plays have been performed in theatres nationally. I’m also an improv comedian and I play piano.
