Hello, I’m Amaya, a Spanish copywriter

I’m Spanish and I live in Madrid, Spain

I have been a copywriter for 19 years, working for top Spanish and European agencies such as SCPF*, Tiempo BBDO, Sra Rushmore, Saatchi & Saatchi or TBWA.

Before going freelance, I got the position of Executive Creative Director twice (at Arc Leo Burnett and Storm Digital). Since January 2009, I have worked as a freelance copywriter, strategist, conceptualizer, transcreator and educator, for communication agencies, direct clients and advertising universities.

I have also worked as an International Pitching creative, in Spain, London, Amsterdam and Paris. As a transcreator I am International Writer for Bartle Bogle Hegarty International and I work regularly for many companies like Amazon, writing in English/Spanish/English.

I have significant experience copywriting for Spanish and international brands: Toyota, Fiat International, Renault Clio, Hyundai, Kia, Nokia, Philip Morris, Pepsi, Coca Cola, Dorada beer, Movistar, Vodafone, Mc Donalds, Gonzalez Byass, Sony, History Channel, Canal Hollywood, Sol Música, 3M and Procter & Gamble (Pantene, Olay).

Previous work includes:

Transcreation for Levi´s, AXE, Barclays, British Airways, Dockers, Google Chrome, Johnnie Walker, Skip. As for the media applications, I have worked on everything from a direct mk piece to the first branded short film produced for the internet (Soberano el Rey Canalla) back in 2000.

For every brief, there is an idea, and for every idea, there is a place to fall in. Or vice versa.

Back in my agency days, I got several international awards, which is always nice.

Shortlisted at Cannes Lions, El Sol and FIAP, Gold at New York Festivals and EPICA, and shortlisted at Club de Creativos.

I have also been voted and been on a jury for festivals such as Club de Creativos (twice), Premios Brio Brasil and LAUS awards. I copywrite because is fun 🙂
