Our projects & publishing

Words, layout, navigation, images and design – all these combine into a seamless experience for your reader. Whether your project is a book or magazine, website or annual report, thesis or story, our expert production team can bring it together.

With experience stretching across music, design, visual arts, popular culture, small business, science, health and the media (even managing an Aboriginal art centre!), we can give your project both a helicopter and a nitty-gritty view. And we can take it from go to whoa, whatever the degree of project management, research, writing, editing, proofreading, design and/or production needed.

From fine arts to culinary arts, business to music, travel to sport, science to health – we’ve got it covered, whether print or online.

This year and last, we’ve been concentrating on long-form writing in between some major travel. Here are some of our past projects.
