About us

A good story
A public organisation had a problem. Their publications required a lot of internal resources and a lot of money.

Many people were involved: Communication, marketing, internal graphic designers, accounting, management, the board, etc., and of course their external consultants (who were also expensive).

The organisation was future-oriented. So they wanted to create both digital and analogue publications. This didn’t make their work any easier.

Everyone did their best, but the process was unmanageable to say the least. A lot of people were creating content; they all had their own input, comments and corrections, and drafts were flying everywhere.

The result was sleepless nights, exhausted employees, a high resource burden and last-minute solutions.

What about the result? Was the publication available in the correct format? Did the readers find the publication interesting and engaging?

Otherwise, all the hard work was for nothing.

Does any of this sound familiar?

It did for us. Our founders have 20+ years of experience in communication, pedagogy and didactics. So we set out to address the challenges facing the organisation and all other public (and private) organisations that need to create publications that will interest readers.

First Edition was the fruit of their labour.

Our ambition is to make working on publications much easier and more fun for you, and to make the result much more interesting and engaging for your readers.
