About

Hi. I’m Claire Rooney. I’m a content designer and editor based in North Ayrshire (near Glasgow) and love working with teams to solve their audience’s problems with useful content (even if the content isn’t necessarily written).

You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.Steve Jobs
