Arthur Levy


Art has over 25 years experience writing copy for advertising, corporate videos, web communications, and presentations. He describes his work as a “translation service” — transforming complex subjects such as finance or technology into simple, everyday language. Art’s approach can be summed up in three words: Personalize, Pictures, and Plotline. That means his words will help you to engage your customers personally, help them paint a picture in their minds about your product or service, and tell your story in a way that flows and encourages them to find out more.
