Writing and editing

Copywriting and editing of all kinds: stories, books, scripts, ads, voiceovers, comics, speeches, articles, white papers, case studies, naming, and more.

We’re highly decorated storytellers—experts at dialogue, voiceover, and script writing who’ve logged over 10,000 hours at our craft. We’re New York Times bestselling authors, officially Immortal on Funny or Die, French graphic novelists, even good-for-nothing comedians.

When it comes to editing other people’s writing, we know that the best editors often have the lightest (and deftest) touch—leaving scarcely a trace of their work in a document, while vastly improving it. And we know that it’s sometimes better to pick up the phone and have a conversation about the underlying ideas in a piece before making any edits.

Put our sagacity to work for you. Should we copyright that? Will enough people know what sagacity means? Or will they think it’s a virtual city where amazing sagas happen?

Design and media

We make and deliver websites, social media pages, ads, voiceover recordings, video production and editing, music videos, digital books, and more.

Design skills—and ways of thinking—can be improved, but good designers have an innate aesthetic sense. They know what good looks like. They know how good works.

Such people drive down an average street and cringe at the rampant font abuse on signage. How do we know this? We are those people. We learned about the Rule of Thirds and the Golden Ratio and found it fascinating. (OK, we got a little obsessed.) We went to college and got degrees in this stuff. And now, dammit, we’re experts.

Still, when it comes to design and media of any kind, time and again it comes back to the story. That’s why so much of our work remains rooted in the writing—and why writers turn to us for design and media services.

Add it up: our added value

The added benefits of word and image smithing.

Our expertise in the ancient art of smithing words and images helps us make the best design choices for your content, and the best content choices for your design—allowing you to achieve Super Genius results without inviting any unfortunate accidents.

Forge Ahead

For reals

We won't rent you a phone.

Remember the old lady who leased a rotary dial phone, and over 40 years paid $14,000? You might sign up with a company that has zero upfront costs—but after 10 years of paying monthly fees, you pay 10x more. One way we reduce your recurring expenses is by using WordPress. It doesn't require you to buy subscriptions, and it’s continually improved at no cost to you in perpetuity.
