We asked our newest copywriter Sophie Mattinson a few weird and wonderful questions to get to know her a little better.


So, Sophie...

What's the one thing you can't live without?

My stargazing app.

Would you rather cry glue or sneeze marbles?

Sneeze marbles. I'd bag them up and sell the for a nice little profit.

How did you first start working in digital?

I began freelancing and attending digital workshops after university, which led into a job or two at different agencies, and now I'm here!

What is your favourite thing about working in digital marketing?

I love writing and being creative, so writing content and blogging is really my bag. I've also got a soft spot for social media, so anything in those fields can put a smile on my face.

If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?

Probably a cat, simply for the cushty life.

If you were a superhero, what superpower would you have and what would be your superhero name?

I don't know about superpower, but on a day-to-day basis, I still think about how cool it would be to have Bernard's watch. So I guess my name would be Bernard.

Where do pigs come from?

I'll leave the pig-related questions to David Cameron.

Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what is it?

I can do a mean robot when the drink is right.

Do you have any nicknames?

"Pingu" when I was young, I still don't know why. My latest nickname is definitely NSFW.

Why do birds suddenly appear?

Everytime you are near? That, or they're migrating.

What's the most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to you?

I accidentally walk into the men's bathroom more often that I'd like to admit, so more of an ongoing embarrassment for me.

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, what does your milkshake bring to the table?

I can teach you, but I'd have to charge.

Where did you grow up, and why?

A little town called Mossley. Because by mum said so, that's why!

Tell us a surprising secret about yourself.

My lips are sealed.

What was the last book you read?

Ayoade on Ayoade by Richard Ayoade.
