What an exciting time it’s been since I produced the last news blog. In mid-2016 I moved and am now settled into my new office/ home and things have been humming along very productively ever since. During 2016 we had a healthy stream of work, which covered an increased variety of projects.
In this edition, I’ve included a list of ways in which we can improve our service to you.
As always, thanks to all our clients for your interesting business as well as client referrals, and all the very best for an exciting year ahead.
Here’s several of our key projects over the past year or so:
The 2016 World Disasters Report for the International Red Cross & Red Crescent Societies
A tabloid-style publication on the New Zealand architecture and design exhibitors’ entries at the 2016 Venice Biennale
A detailed brand book for a global manufacturer of luxury vehicles
A vast range of collateral for display in the new CBD headquarters of a world leader in the dairy industry
The launch of a biannual magazine for one of Auckland’s largest private girls’ schools
Numerous interim and annual reports, corporate social responsibility (CSR) reports, asset management plans and annual plans.

Helpful tips when sending projects for proofreading:
Be clear about the level of proofreading your company/client requires. (We can discuss this at the time of job booking.)
Be realistic about what you can expect us to do for the budget and the time frame.
Keep us in the loop. Give plenty of notice of work arriving by email (or courier) and if your schedule changes, advise us immediately. With warning, we will do our best to adjust our own production schedule to meet your requirements.
Plan your deadlines. (‘Urgent’ can have several meanings.) But if you want us to work nights or weekends to meet your deadlines, please be prepared to pay extra.
Outline your job brief at the time of booking. (Click here for a sample briefing form.) This will save you time, money and issues further down the track. Include relevant information:
A description of the project
Contact person(s) involved
Likely target audience
Turnaround time/date required
To whom the proofread work is to be sent.
Remember, working together ensures a quality outcome for your project. We may ask questions or seek clarification of the brief or work with you to devise solutions.
Tell us if you’re going on holiday or on leave and who to contact instead, especially if the deadline falls during your absence.
Please acknowledge receipt of the work
when it comes in. This is very important for both parties.
We love constructive feedback at the completion of a job.
Emailing us what we did well and what we could have done better, ensures success all round.
