About Tom Rigby.

A freelance copywriter by any other name.


The product of a conventionally dull middle-class childhood in 70s south London and a grisly public school education, over the years I’ve worn many hats (most of which didn’t fit) and taken a circuitous career path towards becoming one of the UK’s most experienced freelance copywriters.

After studying journalism at what was then The London College of Printing, I made my way to Wapping and the sports desk at The News of the World and The Sun. Two years of watching goalless draws on cold, rain-soaked Monday nights and I started to run out of words to describe ‘schoolboy defending’ and ‘a six-pointer’. I was ready for a change.

I joined The Mirror as a music correspondent and while my LP collection swelled, I remained restless. A spell in central Government communications followed, before speech writing for John Prescott also began to take its toll. Determined to find whatever it was that I was looking for, I moved out of London and became a freelance copywriter. That was over 25 years ago.

Since then I’ve provided a freelance copywriting service to businesses and agencies all over the UK and other parts of the world, supplying words which have helped start-ups and some of the best-known brands define and develop their messages, tell their stories and sell their products and services across print and digital media.
