Editorial Services

We know that strong, effective messaging is the cornerstone of promoting your area successfully.

Ours is a cross-cutting team experienced across digital and print platforms with expertise in brand development. We are polished writers, skilled interviewers, and careful editors. Four times a year, we produce content for the university’s flagship magazine on the web and in print. For clients across the university, we write and edit for print, web, and social. We can consult on content strategy before you undertake significant projects—e.g., a website, e-newsletter, viewbook, or annual report—then we’ll carry out your vision. In addition, we work with schools and units across the university to develop and refine their sub-brands for print and digital platforms. If you need a refresh of your existing materials, assistance with a discrete project, or expertise establishing a sub-brand, call on us. We’ll tell your stories in ways that inform and inspire your audiences to action.
