About Me

Will GilgrassI’ve created award winning social media strategies and delivered engaging content for some of the world’s leading broadcasters, publishers and brands such as the BBC, Red Bull and The BRIT Awards.

My work has been recognised by winning two Sony Radio Academy Gold Awards, I was named in The Drum’s Social Buzz Top 50 and I ran The BRIT Awards’ social as it broke UK Twitter records.

During this period I’ve devised and implemented campaigns which have seen traditional media integrate with emerging social and digital platforms in new and innovative ways. Always putting the audience and their interests, user experience and engagement at the centre of all planning.

Career highlights (see projects below for more detailed information):
* The BRIT Awards 2014 digital campaign – the most Tweeted about TV programme in UK history (Senior Content Producer between November 2013 – March 2014)

* Sony Radio Academy Gold Award for Best Use of Multi-Platform 2013 – BBC Radio 1 Review Show (Content Producer)

* Sony Radio Academy Gold Award for Best Use of Multi-Platform/Social Media 2012 – Now Playing @6Music, BBC Radio 6 Music (Content Producer)

I’ve also written for various publication including Mixmag, NME, the Guardian, BBC and more – and if you click through here you can find my writing portfolio.
