Website copy

In early 2017, Classuite was getting ready to leave their beta status and fully launch their classroom collaboration platform. To accompany that maturity, they sought a new strategy to position their product and reinforce their guiding principles: empowering teachers to help their students learn.

I worked with Classuite's founder to develop the brand's new tagline and the remainder of their website.

Ahead of the launch of their new Magellan analytics software, I collaborated with OpenText's product development team to produce a comprehensive document that outlines what their solution accomplishes and how enterprises can take full advantage of machine-assisted analytics.

Nurse is inspired by the concept of a nurse tree.

In order for a young saguaro cactus to survive the Sonoran Desert's extreme climate, it requires the help of a mature mesquite, ironwood, or palo verde tree. As a young a vulnerable seeding, the saguaro benefits from the nurse tree's microclimate of shade and humidity.

In time, the saguaro grows tall enough to extend beyond its nurse tree, and take on the Sonoran Desert for the first time.

I like to believe I work by these same principles of collaboration and symbiosis. With any project, my goal is to give you the support you need to focus on your business, whether that's coding, building, or just dreaming. My mission is to translate what you do into a story that will make customers believe in what you have to offer.

As a copywriter and marketer, I work with companies of all sizes, from startup to enterprise, to discover new and compelling ways to better reach their existing audiences and begin interacting with new ones.

Let's grow together.

I'm Joel Hans, Nurse's director. I received my Bachelor's of Arts from the University of Wisconsin before earning my Master's in creative writing from the University of Arizona in Tucson, where I now live with my wife.

More than anything, I'm a storyteller. I don't just write to help my clients grow their businesses—I write nearly everyday, for myself, because I truly love it. My fiction has been published in widely-read magazines and digital publications. Some of my favorites include:
