What do we do?  Pretty much everything to do with words and making them work for you. 

It's about telling your story.

  • Writing - feature stories, business profiles, brochures, websites, ads, advertorials, newsletters, editorials, articles, direct marketing, corporate documents. 
  • Strategic public relations 
  • Media releases and media relations
  • Media planning and strategy
  • Public relations strategy and implementation
  • Advertising copy and audits
  • Social media strategies
  • Television script writing

And it's all made possible with the help of a good cup of joe from Hawthorne or Maina in Havelock North, Opera Kitchen in Hastings and FG Smiths in Ahuriri.
