Key skills: Research; interviewing scientists; science journalism; tight deadlines

The Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at The University of Manchester publishes magazines to update stakeholders and alumni about activities, initiatives and exciting new discoveries. The External Communications team contracted Scientia Scripta to write several feature articles and researcher profiles.

As leader on this project, Deborah quickly got to grips with the unfamiliar and complex scientific research she needed to highlight. She interviewed the scientists and developed engaging copy to explain the research and present researchers as passionate and fascinating individuals, capable of spearheading the University’s drive for world-leading science.

Thanks to our familiarity with the University’s communication strategy and brand guidelines, we also suggested ideas for strong, dynamic images to accompany the articles.Front cover
