Rated by our peers

In a recent Direct Marketing Association poll of British copywriters, our Executive Creative Director, Andy Maslen, was only pipped to the top spot by advertising giants Dave Trott and David Abbott.

(We still make him fetch the sandwiches in for meetings, though.)

How we won The Economist as a client

We set up shop in 1996. Our first major client was The Economist. How did we win their business? By writing to their CEO.

Our global client list includes large organisations such as The Economist (still), TIME Magazine, Prudential, BP, Pitney Bowes, Reed Elsevier, The Royal Mint, World Vision and the RSPB.

And a wide range of institutions and smaller companies in sectors as diverse as software, engineering, academia, publishing, conferences and healthcare.

Why the name Sunfish?

Lake Wobegon CoverTo be a great copywriter, you have to be a voracious reader. One of our favourite books is Lake Wobegon Days by Garrison Keillor.

On page 2, 3 lines from the bottom there’s a reference to Sunfish Bay. We just loved the image and shortened it for our name.

I wanted to pass along a thank you for your work on the conference. I am always in awe of creative folks that can take our words and create the most incredibly readable and appealing documents.- Yvonne Fizer, Business Development, Sirolli Institute
I have to say that Guy was very impressed: to quote him 'Someone is remarkably well informed about Decanter! Good to see. It reads very well.' Many thanks for doing such a fantastic job on the copy.- Kirstie Mitchell, Subscriptions Marketing Manager, IPC Media
When our partner charity, Brainwave, needed some help with their copy recently, Sunfish was the obvious choice. The results were delivered quickly and efficiently and we were all delighted with the outcomes.- Maggy Ledochowski, Partner, Charity Group, London Stock Exchange
Really impressed with the work and the flexibility. We contracted them on two further occasions to help structure and write copy for a new project. They always write excellent, effective copy. A joy to work with.- Alex Malcolm, Managing Director, Jacada Travel
