BOX CLEVER CREATIVE
Communications. Content. Copywriting. Campaigns. Creativity.
Box Clever Creative is me, Jaime Gill, and a team of trusted, talented freelance collaborators I assemble when needed for particular projects. I'm an award-winning creative, copywriter & communications consultant with over 20 years experience in finding the words & creativity that bring brands & messages to life.
I'm here if you need scalpel-sharp copywriting and content to jumpstart your website or social media, a dazzling creative idea to push past competitors, or an intelligent, integrated marketing strategy. I live in the UK & Cambodia, but work internationally.
What does "BOX CLEVER"
Boxing clever is a sporting term which has been in use for more than a century. A fighter who boxes clever is someone who matches their natural abilities and strengths with a disciplined long-term strategy and smart, adaptable tactics. They typically read their opponents well and can game out a fight over multiple rounds. A fighter who boxes clever is usually able to defeat an opponent who is bigger and stronger.
My communications advice can help you box clever so you can take on and overcome your challenges or competitors, no matter how big they are.
HOW CAN I HELP YOU?
With twenty years of experience, I can put together a communications strategy which will help you achieve your business or campaigning goals, combining creative ideas, revitalised websites, brilliant blogging, souped up social media, traditional PR and more
Ingenious video concepts that blew minds & won awards, record-breaking birthday cards, the world's first easy-read newspaper, diversity celebrated on postcards, social distance football - just some of the ideas that have made my clients famous and happy
Coffee table books, websites, reports introduced by Hillary Clinton, blogs read by millions, social media posts that went viral, issues driven opinion pieces in international media, scripts for videos that changed social attitudes, speeches - I've written them all and more
With 23 years of PR experience, and my own time as a journalist, I know exactly what the media want and am able to deliver communications strategies which deliver big media hits. Good PR will raise your profile, supercharge your SEO and bring in revenue
I've scripted videos costing $500,000 and personally driven the creation of videos costing $500. Both had brand-changing impact. I'm an expert in capturing complex subjects in simple, sharp, effective videos with over 25 million views in Cambodia alone.
For better or worse, I'm immersed in social media. Whether it's Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, or another new upstart, I can help create content to cut through all the social media hubbub so your brand and message are heard.

The best work is born from collaboration. So if your project requires more skills or more hands on deck than I have, I'll assemble a crack team of fellow freelancers I've worked with before, including Khmer/English translators, film-makers, designers and editors.
But I also want to collaborate with you. Whether you want copywriting or content creation, a creative idea, or full marketing strategy, I'll take the time to get to know your brand and business inside out. We'll agree exactly what makes you special and design a strategy which makes sure the world finds out. In the last decade, my work won 17 international & 6 national awards, including:
