How not to look like a bunch of idiots

There is a difference between 'there', 'they’re' and 'their' or 'you' and 'you’re', not to mention 'its' and 'it’s' and if it’s wrong on your website, or on campaign or marketing material your organisation looks like amateur hour at clown school. Grammar and punctuation are simple things to get right, but awful when wrong. As a wordsmith and editor I catch those mistakes.

I also help organisations with the look and feel of communications and marketing output. I provide both offline and online design services from full scale reworking of website functionality and visualisation to creating and editing reports and presentations.

I edit and design in the full Adobe design suite (Indesign, Illustrator, Photoshop), plus I also now work with the Affinity suite of software too, as well as Powerpoint for presentations.

True story

When a duck turns naughty

I once worked for a publishing company which produced an 'Eating Out' guide for a county in the UK (I didn't work on the publication). 

One year, to save money, a junior was left to proofread the entries and a Chinese restaurant listed its specialty as Aromatic Crispy Duck, only the 'D' was entered as an 'F' and it got through the 'cheap' proofread and entered circulation. The company was lucky not to get sued, it certainly didn't get paid and had to reprint the guide. 

The moral of this story is, do not scrimp on editing and proofing.
