Mandy Brown is a wordsmith. She takes other people’s words and hammers them into shape.
More recently, Mandy assembled a dream team to work on her startup Editorially, an online platform for collaborative writing and editing. That didn’t work out in the end, which is a shame because it was a lovely piece of work.
Before that, Mandy worked as product lead at Typekit, whipping their communications into shape.
