Writing and editing

Copywriting and editing of all kinds: stories, books, scripts, ads, voiceovers, comics, speeches, presentations, 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.

We won’t rent you a phone.

Remember the story of the old man who leased a rotary dial phone from AT&T, and over 60 years paid them thousands of dollars? Stonestreet Works does not rent phones.

You might sign up with a company that has zero upfront costs—but after 10 years of paying monthly fees, you’ve paid 10x more.

When maintaining a presence online comes with ongoing costs, early decisions about mundane matters can have far-reaching implications. Our aim is to help you minimize such costs.

One way we reduce your expenses is by using WordPress. It isn’t owned by a company that requires you to buy updates or subscriptions. It’s an open-source platform, perpetually improved at no cost to you.

WordPress currently powers one quarter of all websites (including the New York Times). It’s unlikely to become obsolete any time soon, and that means your site is closer to future-proof.
