About

I’m Freddie Harrison. I care about writing that makes the big stuff feel simple, accessible and a little more human.

During the day, I write for two of the UK’s top ten most valuable brands at Sideshow. At night, I co-host Episode Party.

In 2011, I joined iCreate Magazine as their Staff Writer and left as Features Editor. While I was there, I re-launched the magazine’s front section, produced the iCreate Podcast and co-authored the iTunes bestselling iCloud for Beginners ebook.

At the end of 2013, I joined the marketing team at Arts University Bournemouth as they launched their first app. I worked on their launch strategy and Apple featured it on release day. I also worked on the relaunch of their website, leading on content and strategy as web editor.

In 2015, I went freelance and worked for everyone from creative agencies and multi-national charities, to universities and financial advisors. I wrote copy, launched and edited magazines, consulted on UX and content strategy, and launched a podcast. It was super fun, but I’m more than happy to have a permanent work home again.
