Research & Copywriting

Research & Copywriting

A proven track record in sourcing and interpretation of archive documents, map, books, photography and film on a vast range of topics.

We have academic backgrounds and thrive on researching new projects. We firmly believe that designers must fully understand the stories they interpret, as only then can they distil the salient points appropriate to each target audience. What we don’t know, we will find out!

For large-scale projects, we coordinate teams of supervised and supported volunteers to perform in-depth research, which is then compiled and edited by professional historians.
