Our August

Wow, we’ve reached the end of August! In three short weeks my eldest starts school, but for seasoned pros it’s back to school in a few days. I hope everyone has had a super summer!

Here’s a pictorial roundup of what we got up to this month. I’m going to do this every month now. We’re visiting places or doing things I’d like to post about, faster than I can post about them.

Click the images to link either to Little Lewes posts or to the place’s own website (if I’ve not posted about it yet).

I’m Kate, a copywriter, brand consultant and editor who creates messages that are clear and clean. I create these for brands and agencies both big and boutique, in areas including design, homes and interiors, travel, fashion, lifestyle, beauty, food, and kids and families. I believe clear, clean messages bolster brands and businesses. They evoke emotion and ignite inspiration, and when written well, they’re easier to absorb – and respond to. I live in Copenhagen and am half-English, half-Danish. I write as comfortably in American English as in British, and behind the scenes I'm also studying Danish. Need help getting your message out?
