At this moment, hundreds of blogs, magazines and newsletters are being dreamed up in meeting rooms, co-working spaces and makeshift offices all over the world. They promise brands insane web traffic, customer loyalty and legacies beyond their wildest dreams. At this moment, hundreds of consumers are deleting brand emails from their inbox. They’re tossing company magazines in the recycling and scrolling straight past sponsored posts. In this world of all-encompassing content, what does it take for a brand to stand out?
At Sonder & Tell we combine smart strategy with innovative storytelling to create communications that cut through the noise. Our aim is to create a unique personality for your brand and a way of expressing your story which resonates with your target audience. Are you smart? Do you crack jokes? What gets you angry?
Then it’s about drawing out an organic narrative to be communicated across all touchpoints – from website copy and product descriptions to email communications. Newsflash: you might not even need a blog. Content is not about ticking boxes, but about telling authentic stories where it counts.
When it’s right we can turn brands into publishers, calling on the support from our community of creators and expert writers to produce good stories that spark good conversation.

“I would recommend Sonder & Tell for moving mountains: defining a brand voice, developing a content strategy from scratch, and delivering inspiring work. They brought innovative, human, insightful concepts to the table and the writing itself was premium, fresh, moving and editorial.”Airbnb
I’ve learned more about targeted consumer copywriting in a year of working with Sonder & Tell that I have in countless years before”Good Hemp
"Sometimes I have to remind myself that Sonder & Tell is an agency, that Kate and Emily don’t work at Jigsaw. I’ve been working so closely with them for the last six months that they feel part of my team. Clever, witty, imaginative, driven, brilliantly-networked – I could keep going. Here's to the next project"Jigsaw
