Birnie finished his three years at Falmouth University with a first-class creative writing degree and a daughter (also first class). After a short recovery period, he joined the Nixon team as Content Assistant and turned his pen from poetry and fictional prose to copy.
Since starting, Birnie has worked on a variety of projects, from adverts and SEO to branding. He’s taken a particular liking to tone of voice, relishing the opportunity to use his academic understanding of language and literature to help a brand communicate its core values.
Away from the studio, he spends all his time playing peekaboo with his baby daughter. He sometimes refers to himself as a ‘master pie-maker’, though the team have yet to see any evidence of his fabled baking ability.
Copywriting, branding (values, personality and tone of voice), SEO and editorial for digital and print (including editing, sub-editing and proof-reading).
