Juliana Mariia Rose
WHAT STEPS DID YOU TAKE TO GET WHERE YOU ARE NOW?
I studied Communication as an undergraduate. I’ve written a lot of lengthy papers, as well as general comms for Marketing departments and creative agencies. I’ve tutored and helped high schoolers write essays for college. I’m a veritable English nerd who kept the Bradford grammar book for far too long. And I’ve toyed with brand voice and copy at the design studios I’ve worked at.
Send me your website copy, your research papers, and anything in between. I do love brand positioning and can help you refine that too.
FOR OTHER PEOPLE IN YOUR FIELD, WHAT DO THEY USUALLY LACK?
I’m not honestly one for pointing out what others lack. I will say I can offer a breadth and range of copy, from more formal writing to brand voice and tone.
WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON RIGHT NOW?
Currently I’m working at a design firm that produces presentation decks as well as copy writing/refining a website for a small business. I love putting information together into a well-constructed piece of work.
WHAT'S YOUR STYLE/PERSPECTIVE/TASTE? DO YOU HAVE A PROJECT THAT REPRESENTS THIS?
This one is a bit of a challenging for me to pin down. I will say I write a mean formal essay and research paper. However, I also have a conversational or playful tone for brand copy, and a more whimsical tone like this.
Overall I’d describe my writing as either formal or conversational like this Blog post.
WE ARE ALL SLASHIES WITH MULTIPLE SKILLS, WHICH ONE DO YOU WISH YOU COULD DO MORE OFTEN?
I have explored quite a few of my slashy skills. Right now I am super into copy writing and really would like to continue discovering new projects in that realm!
WHAT IS FRUSTRATING YOU RIGHT NOW?
Honestly, less and less is frustrating me right now. If anything it would be finding more and more exercise in my life!
IF YOU COULD HIRE SOMEONE FOR $20/HOUR, WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE THEM DO TO MAKE YOUR DAY EASIER?
Fortunately tech has made my $20/hour tasks quite easy, so I’m actually okay on this front.
LET'S BRING OUT THE TIME MACHINE. WHAT DO YOU WISH YOU COULD HAVE TOLD YOURSELF, WHEN, AND WHY?
Slow down. There’s no need to stress about everything 24/7. I will say I most likely needed to go through this to come out the other end with more clarity, ease and confidence. So heck, I would have told my former self - dive in, you know you want to, enjoy it and stop when you need to.
IF YOU COULD TALK TO AN EXPERT TO GAIN MORE INSIGHT ON SOMETHING, WHAT WOULD IT BE ABOUT?
I would really really love to have a conversation with a user researcher. The kind that interviews subjects to design systems that improve our lives!
WHAT KIND OF OPPORTUNITIES/PROJECTS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
I am rather open; however, I’d like to focus on copy rewriting instead of copy creation. If there’s a lot of information at hand, I can go in and structure a piece of writing and refine and provide direction or polished work. I love language, how we communicate and how we organize or structure information to make sense of it!
WHAT IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?
Oh my perfect client is you dear reader! Please reach out if you’re interested in working together!
WHAT IS YOUR RATE?
$22/hour depending on the project. Up to $30 for a broader look at copy voice and tone. $40/hr if a major rework is required.
HOW SHOULD SOMEONE APPROACH YOU ABOUT WORKING TOGETHER?
Email is best! Juliana.firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward to connecting with you!
HOW DO YOU STAY CREATIVE?
Dancing, music, yoga, exercise and movement. Movement unlocks an emotional and visceral response that is undeniably profound and powerful for me. From that state I am open enough to create! Oh and sweating my pants off!
