Connect, inspire and build an awesome brand

one sturdy sentence at a time

 

RockPaperWord is a business identity boutique dedicated to advancing your awesomeness in print or online.

I’m Rochelle Torke, Founder and Chief Wordsmith here. I’ve worn a few writerly hats over the past 15 years—from Publications Editor to Senior Copywriter to Marketing Director—and have helped launch or refresh dozens of brands worldwide. I love turning stilted business or technical speak into human words people enjoy reading.

With deep B2B and B2C marketing campaign experience, I guide UX, design, product and writing teams—sometimes hiring and leading the creative team myself—to stoke customer happiness at every turn. I’m a project manager, team galvanizer, creative motivator and always a writer at heart.

Fear not. Take me to your best ideas and worst copy. The copy doctor is in.
