PORTFOLIO: WEBSITE WRITING
AB Lighting specialise in creative technical solutions for a wide range of events. I was commissioned to write the content for their new company website, including the landing page, 'Services', 'About' and 'Markets'.
The project required in-depth research of the theatre and events industries. I got to know AB Lighting inside out, translating the company's highly technical features into solid customer benefits.
I worked closely with the company director to develop a professional and knowledgable tone-of-voice that still feels friendly and approachable — all the while keeping SEO in mind.
In these extracts, I identify the target markets specific pain points and offer tailored solutions.

With twenty years experience working on West End theatre shows, we know exactly how to turn your event into a stunning visual experience that will leave your guests in awe.

From dazzling pyrotechnics to jaw-dropping illusions, our special effects have the power to turn any event into an unforgettable entertainment experience.
With decades of professional stage work behind us, our team have the skill and precision to create a multitude of magical theatrical effects. As well as atmospheric effects like smoke, haze and snow, AB Lighting also offer custom-built, wirelessly controlled props.

WE ARE TECHNICIANS. WE ARE STORYTELLERS.
WE ARE AB LIGHTING.
AB Lighting are creative technical solutions specialists providing lighting, sound, audio-visual and special effects to corporate events, weddings and theatre productions in the UK and worldwide.
Founded by director Andy Bird in 2007, AB Lighting has built a reputation of creative innovation and professional excellence across the events and entertainment spectrum. We pride ourselves on delivering the best possible technical support for our wide range of clients, including Jimmy Choo, Vari-Lite and the West End’s multi-award-winning theatre production, Phantom of the Opera.
HOW IT ALL STARTED
Like all the best stories, ours is one of humble beginnings. Andy’s love for technical operation and design was born as a schoolboy. He learnt his craft assisting with lighting in school shows, working out of his parents garage and experimenting with all the lighting equipment he could get his hands on. By the age of 17, he landed his first professional theatre role, working as a follow spot operator in The Strand Theatre, London.
Inspired by London’s West End productions, Andy began exploring the possibilities of technical design in small-scale, local theatre. But he soon found his work limited by cost restrictions necessary for community theatre to survive. Driven by a passion for creative experimentation, Andy began to invest in his own high-end technical equipment, and hire it to these productions for a fraction of the cost.
With this new creative freedom, Andy was able to provide professional-level technical design in situations it would be otherwise impossible to achieve. From this, AB Lighting was born.
AB LIGHTING TODAY
Since then, AB Lighting has gone from strength to strength. Over the years we have assisted a multitude of professional theatre productions in the UK, Europe and beyond — including world-celebrated musicals Phantom of the Opera, Chicago and Miss Saigon. We've worked all over the globe on international tours — from Stockholm to Shanghai, Sao Paulo to Seoul— providing a range of services from technical design to rigging, installation and electronics. Suffice to say that when it comes to creative technical design, we really know our stuff.
Beyond the theatre world, we have supported corporate events hosted by Louis Vuitton, Harvey Nichols, Jimmy Choo, Philips and Clintons Cards, as well as providing regular support in universities and colleges.
AB Lighting has come a long way, but our ethos remains the same. We would not be where we are today without the inspiration and opportunities offered by our local community in those early years.
That’s why we continue to provide affordable, professional-level technical support for small-scale events, including school productions, private celebrations and am-dram theatre.

After initially analysing my business leaving no stone unturned she created a masterpiece of content for me to review and it made me see my business in a whole new light.
