Michelle De Marée

Michelle co-owns Copy That (a UX writing agency based in Copenhagen, Denmark) together with Oline Schoeler. She (quite ironically) thinks of herself as the Dr. Frankenstein of content and delights in figuring out how the often scattered pieces of content fit together to form a cohesive whole, so users easily find what they’re looking for. Her analytical mindset has served her well in the transition from SEO and online marketing to UX writing. Rather than try and sell users a solution after it’s built, she gets to dive under the hood and write useful, meaningful copy that helps users navigate their way around a product—one word at a time. Copy That’s clients include Shopify, Surfshark, Dixa, and more!

Oline Schoeler​

Oline runs Copy That, a UX writing agency based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Together with her co-owner Michelle de Maree, she’s on a mission to provide tech companies with content that converts, and microcopy that packs a punch in small spaces. Oline started off as a traditional copywriter in creative agencies but fell in love with the more data-driven world of UX writing. Oline built her UX foundation in the Product Department at Trustpilot, where she spearheaded UX writing and managed a team of 20+ localization managers. Today, Oline and Michelle work together with a wide array of tech companies: from startup to enterprise, B2B to B2C. Some of their clients include Shopify, Surfshark, and Dixa.
