We are passionate about what we do. Our clients include some of the UK’s local charities, trusts, associations and small businesses.

We have over 20 years of writing and editing experience and expertise in communication online and offline. We help you to identify the best way to tell your story and to create awareness about your projects and causes. We can build up communication strategies to reflect your organisation, not-for-profit association and anything that you might need to communicate, to voice your projects and causes.
Content Creation & Copywriting
We work for different types of project and are happy to support you from one-off projects to longer-term ongoing ones.
As well as offering this support to ensure that your brand always has a steady flow of content, our content services also include one-off projects for effective business communications to help those not yet needing the full package. From copywriting to press releases and case studies – we can help you shout about the great work that you are doing!
We have more than 20 years’ experience in creative and copywriting, and can discuss your projects with you to help you to produce some new marketing material or website copy (or other communication projects); we’ve got the words you’re looking for.
You will discuss in detail your needs and wants, creating together a clear message and making sure that each piece we create conveys precisely what you want people to learn about you and your cause.
We can produce a perfectly crafted copy for:
· Case studies
· Marketing leaflets and brochures
· Social media posts and LinkedIn articles
· Website copy
Grant Writing & Fundraising Support
Writing the right grant application requires care and precision and the correct approach. Some funders have a slim form and a fast turn around, but mostly donators have online applications that need dedication, inclination and attention to detail: from the right way to explain why you are applying to the break down of the budget/estimate.
We have put in place a team working with grant writing and support you identify the right funding available in your sector and for your cause. We are also dedicated to finding the right people that are interested in what you are doing and are willing to support your ideas and projects. With the right funding coming your way, it is much easier to follow the goals of your cause.
Social Media Marketing
Do you need a social media presence, and don’t know where to begin? Or do you know what you want to do, and don’t have the time to do it? A Social Media presence is essential today, and this can be time-consuming. If a website is your new business card, being on social media with tailored activities and strategies is like having a shop window with your business/project open to the world. Metaphorically it’s the digital High Street.
We offer full social media management and monitoring services to support your organisation, projects and ideas.
Social media is a great opportunity to communicate with your customers, and it needs to be done strategically and effectively and consistently.
Our social media services include creating and establishing profiles, building audiences, crafting engaging content and then sharing it with your followers. We also work with bloggers and influencers to extend your reach and involve guest bloggers to have fresh social media posts and news.
We’ll recommend the most relevant and appropriate social channels and strategies to reach your audience and demographic.
We can help you with ongoing support both for writing and updating your blogs and your online and offline content, whilst keeping your website updated with regular maintenance, so the site stays organically active and does not date.
We provide expert strategic support that will realise change for your organisation. If you’re not sure where to begin, just call us for an initial chat to bring focus to your project.
Our clients are those creating positive change, like heritage organisations, charities, educators and healthcare providers. These are rewarding organisations to work with, because what happens here really matters to people.
As a result, we find ourselves faced with complex, involved and slow-burning challenges. These are the types of projects that we find most interesting and the ones through which our design ethos, strong strategic thinking and sector understanding can help to reach people and make a lasting difference.
We help our clients to revitalise national culture, raise money for good causes, educate more young people. And that’s what design is all about: changing the way people feel, encouraging them to think differently and inspiring them to take action.
