claire monica burgess english copywriter

I’m an English copywriter, living in Berlin the Incredible Dream after 12 years in Paris.

Though I create for many big brands, I love any inspiring or challenging project where I might be able to make a difference.

Fluent in French, I’m working on the German. When I’m not writing, you can find me urban dancing, trying to learn Japanese, reading on abandoned runways or watching cosmic documentaries.

“Claire has worked with us on a variety of assignments, from consumer literature in the luxury business to B2B online communications. Each time, Claire has delivered outstanding work, under very tight deadlines, demonstrating her ability to understand the client and the audience, and provide solutions often beyond the brief. She has become a real partner for the agency, because she 'gets it' and she delivers.”

David Gompel, Publicis Dialog, Paris

“When first meeting Claire it is easy to believe that her creative work will be good. Smart, charming and insightful, there is little reason to doubt her abilities. Add a star if you meet her in Paris, or Berlin, or....

Then you get her work and you realize you were wrong. Claire's work is not good at all, its brilliant. And the more work she does for you the more you realize just how brilliant she really is.

My advice is to hire Claire... repeatedly.”

Guy Mastrion, GSW Worldwide

“It has been a pleasure to work with Claire on several occasions. Her fluency in French and her great sense of the nuances of the English language are a remarkable asset in any worldwide communication campaign. Claire is creative, reactive, and thorough. On a more personal level, she has proven to be the most agreeable person to work with.”

Alberic Luciani, Wunderman, Paris

“Après avoir travaillé avec Claire à plusieurs reprises et sur des budgets différents, chez Ursula Grüber, on en arrive à la conclusion que Claire, c’est le meilleur des deux cultures : de l’humour (British, of course!), de la créativité (French flair) et un grand professionalisme (English pragmatism + French flexibility).”

Patricia Mangény, Ursula Grüber, Paris

“Claire is fast and creative. And funny!”
