Website and printed content refreshment
Are you looking to refresh, revitalise or update existing web content? The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic is providing organisations and individuals with a good opportunity to do just this.
Many of my clients are using this time to execute content refreshment and rewriting. Some are even requesting an overhaul of all their existing print and online content. These content refreshment projects include structural edits, content rewriting, and refreshing old communications for new information, new branding, consistency, compliance, and an updated look.
