Olive and write Why we exist


O'live and write is an affordable quirky copywriting and design coop. Just like an olive press, we cut through the fluff and distraction to produce compelling content.

We’ll help you navigate the rocky shores of branding and nuanced tones so you can simply focus on bringing your best products/services forward.

Make your brand stick in people’s minds (the right way).

Olive and write Copywriting and design ad


Founder | Copywriter

Grace's love for words and reading drove her to take up a degree in English Literature (Hons), supplemented by a diploma in Information Design and Communications. It's this same combination that landed Grace in the advertising industry, where she delved into social media marketing strategies and content creation. After seven years of working in agencies and in-house teams, Grace decided to set up her own in 2020! She spends an unhealthy amount of time on social media writing up bite-sized book reviews and setting up ads for clients. If Grace isn't doing digital stuff... she'd be perched comfortably on her IKEA couch with a good book.

Fatin revels in watching movies. As a teenager, she was enraptured forever by the magic of animation and stop-motion movies. Now at O&W she's come full circle, creating paper puppets and stories that come alive. 

If you're lucky enough to catch Fatin in the midst of a stop-motion project, she appears as though she's wrestling a pair of disobedient cats, that is to say... for the 110th time, she is nudging a paper puppet for another half a millimetre. Yes, it's complicated and tedious, but it's what she loves!

Part-Time Photographer | Videographer

Zachary paints with light. He's constantly seen prancing about armed with cutting-edge equipment in one hand and a camera in another. He's a nine-legged octopus if there ever was one.

With an honours degree in design, he has over the course of 4 years developed an agile eye for framing scenes, visual storytelling, and an intuitive sense of creativity and balance.



Part-time Graphic Artist | Illustrator

Ashley sees the world through magical rainbows and kaleidoscopic pixie dust clouds... and works hard to translate it into visuals fit for the human eye. She graduated with a degree in Fine Arts and loves working with children.

In another life, she'd be an art therapist or teacher, residing in an isolated suburb and teaching children to embrace the art of creative expression.



Part-Time Writer | Interviewer

Srinidhi considers herself an adventurer filled with a deep curiosity about the world. She’s a science graduate who realised later on that her heart lies in the arts. She makes up for it by attempting poetry in her spare time, constantly marvelling at the power of words. A perfect day for Srinidhi looks like lounging in a cosy cafe with a cup of coffee as she reads a meaningful book. One day, she hopes to fly—whether literally or figuratively, she hasn’t decided yet.
