Our business, ideas, approach and words are fresh and original, thanks to the way we Feed…
As a copywriting and content agency, creativity is our currency. We use it every day to craft compelling brand stories, shape impactful campaigns, produce stand-out online content and create original publishing concepts and print materials (find out more about our work).
Our clients are constantly pushing forward; driven to stand out in an increasingly competitive marketplace. And they need the very best words from the very best writers behind them to make that happen.
Feeding is our way of making sure everyone in our organisation has regular time and space away from client and project work to nurture their creativity, be inspired and sharpen their skills. It’s fundamental to our working culture; everyone at Stranger Collective Feeds in proportion to the time they work, from our partners and full-time staff to our freelance writers. By staying well Fed, we do our jobs better – simple as that.
We use our Feed time to explore, experience, think, read, create, connect, experiment, learn – anything that gives us a fresh perspective and helps us when it comes to sparking new ideas and crafting great words. It could be going to conferences on storytelling or content marketing, exploring the world of immersive narrative, doing a film editing course, attending a poetry workshop, trying locative gaming, researching a new trend online, reading a book that’s been waiting for our attention, writing for a charity, giving a lecture, or just meeting up with a contact to find out more about a possible collaboration. Or anything else for that matter.
There’s just one condition: we have to write a post on our Feed blog about each Feed, so both our clients and other writers can discover what benefits and insights have come from this time.
And what difference does Feeding make? Our clients benefit because it makes us better writers, who bring sharper, better-informed ideas to the table. (And don’t worry, there’s always at least one partner and two members of staff here in the office to help you whenever you need it.) Our writers benefit because they relish the creative headspace, stretching themselves and continually improving the way they work. And our business benefits because Feeding encourages innovation (in fact, we’ve won two awards for it), boosts motivation, attracts new talent, and keeps us all happy, bright eyed and bubbling with ideas.
