What’s the story?
Edwin Ellis Creative Media is a public relations, communications, publishing and design agency founded by a former newspaper editor and an award winning journalist. We know what reporters are looking for and what readers are interested in. We know the stories that make news editors open their emails and when to (or, more importantly, when not to) bother them with a news release. Trust us, we’ve been there and this insider knowledge is worth its weight in gold.
What we do
Ok, so you might want to break it down to public relations, internal or external communications, copywriting or, heaven forbid, native commercial content but ultimately, we like to keep things simple: we write words. We're pretty good at it, too.
We can bring life to any subject and make it readable, engaging and in this mobile digital world, shareable. We believe in keeping things simple, jargon free and always with the reader in mind.
Trust Edwin Ellis Creative Media to get your message across or raise brand awareness with creativity, authority, personality and professionalism.
We understand the power and importance of photography. We take it seriously. Ask any snapper worth their salt and they'll tell you it's an art form. We tend to agree but hate to admit it for fear of day rates going through the roof.
Edwin Ellis Creative Media has spent years working alongside some of the best photographers in the land, who can turn their hand (or snazzy new lens) to any style required. They're a great bunch but crikey they're high maintenance, so let us do the hand-holding so you can sit back and enjoy the stunning results.
Now you're talking. This is in our DNA. We've spent more than 20 years overseeing newspapers, websites, apps and email newsletters. We can write, headline, structure, design and distribute newsletters, books, magazines, newsprint, brochures and leaflets.
It goes without saying we know our standfirsts from our sub-heads; our mastheads from our earpieces and every other bit of page-planning jargon in between. We can do all this online, too, through web content management in numerous systems or blogs to help keep your social media presence ticking along nicely.
Content is king. It always will be as far as we're concerned, but that doesn't mean we're not interested in the aesthetics. Allow Edwin Ellis Creative Media to take care of your graphic design needs in print and online.
Logo design, leaflets, newsletters, stationery… we’ve got them covered. Oh, and you have our word: Brush Script and Comic Sans are strictly OFF LIMITS.
