Who takes the time to appreciate the creativity of the little guys? The following copywriting examples are from mostly lesser-known brands or sources that you may not have seen before. And if you have, feel free to gaze admiringly again anyway. A great headline from Stand Up to Cancer that turns a well-known phrase on its head.
However, what I like most about this bus stop ad is the subheading. A clever piece of copywriting in the form of a client testimonial from this magazine ad in an issue of The Leither. Written by designer Joe Treefor Edinburgh accountants Cowan and Partnersthis headline is a perfect example of a clever ad that knows its target audience.
An unsubscribe message from education and careers training company General Assembly. Even though this farewell message will probably be the last correspondence that the subscriber receives, it leaves a lasting impression.
And a good last impression goes a long way to a re-subscription in the future. A quirky and effective copywriting example from Pret a Manger in an unlikely place. What I like about the copy is that it manages to be light-hearted while raising awareness of a serious issue. Not only does the messaging encourage customers to be environmentally conscious, but it cleverly makes the point that reducing waste is a collective effort by mentioning Pret staff.
One of my favourite pieces of copywriting, this advert from First Bank draws the reader in with a long sentence and manages to hit upon a common copywriting peeve.
As part of an NHS campaign to encourage people to give blood, several brands dropped letters from their own names and marketing materials to raise awareness of the need for blood donation.
The missingblood campaign had a big impact and missing letters could be seen on street signs, shop signs, adverts, newspapers, shop receipts, envelopes and even company names.
I particularly like the photo above of missing letters on a letter. A simple yet very effective piece of copywriting. A quirky piece of copywriting on a Virgin train that manages to be informational, conversational and humorous all at the same time.
A well-written mission statement from the Beer 52 craft beer club. I really like how this copy flows and makes use of alliteration to give the writing a solid, consistent rhythm.
Some humorous copywriting here from Berocca that uses minimal storytelling to sell their multivitamins. By writing in the style of a job candidate profile, the tongue-in-cheek copy is immediately relatable to its target audience of busy office workers.
A screenshot taken from the Fred Perry website. Straight-to-the-point copywriting that grabs your attention and encourages you to take action. The transparent, light-hearted messaging makes the reader appreciate the effort made by the brand.
The welcoming tone of voice in this copy makes for an effective table menu.
Attention-grabbing copywriting from Stewart Milne Homes that clearly understands its target audience of young, single men in the market to buy a property.
