Welcome to Mark Jones Media – the online home of the work of Mark Jones. Working in both freelance creative and employed roles Mark has crafted a wide range of content, from copy to 3D-printed chocolate heads.
Mark’s goal is to create unique content that entertains as much as it informs (and occasionally tastes good). This is achieved by tuning into original ideas and finding the element of fun in every job.
From Copywriting to Content Creation
Mark started freelancing as a copywriter for online publications, writing about video games, mobile phones and technology.
After the blogging freebies dried up (he still owns a 128MB Sims 3 USB stick) he fell into opportunities where he found himself honing a range of other skills in a professional environment. Working for small startups such as Choc Edge, and volunteering on projects at Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum, has helped Mark to demonstrate his ability to produce different types of engaging content.
Freelance Creative Services
Mark regularly uses the Adobe Creative Suite to create content, working in InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Lightroom, and Premiere Pro. His freelance services include:
Mark has written a wide range of content based on practical marketing, social media, and photography experience.
Developing his photography skills working with startups like Choc Edge and Exeter City Futures, Mark has learned how valuable slick pics can be to new businesses.
Graphic Design, Web Design, and Illustration
In his experience working with startups Mark has fulfilled the promise of his A-Level art skills producing a wide range of digital and printed design work, in addition to responsive and search engine optimised websites using WordPress and other content management systems.
Mark first got into video during an internship with the National Trust where he filmed sing-a-longs and squirrels (though not at the same time) for an e-advent calendar project.
Never afraid of a new challenge or failing at it Mark some of the projects he has experimented with over the years include a Children’s Poetry Site, a Green Screen Experience, and creating customised 3D-printed Roman coins.
Mark currently works at Exeter City Futures where he is the Creative Lead but is available for freelance work one day a week.
