The people behind Copy Cabana 2016

Copy Cabana is the brainchild of two copywriters: Andy Maslen and Vikki Ross.

Between us we have 50 years’ experience in copywriting, marketing and advertising.

Vikki is a D&AD judge as well as a jury forewoman, and teaches at SCA, the world’s best advertising school. Andy is the author of five books on copywriting and a series of action thrillers.

We didn’t recognise ourselves – or our friends and colleagues – in the image presented of copywriters as needy “grammar geeks” or “word nerds”. For us and our clients, copywriting is the sun on the skin. The flake in the 99. The perfect wave. The coolest beach bar at the end of the hottest day.

We're bringing Copy Cabana 2016 to Matt Desmier’s smoking-hot Silicon Beach.
