Copywriting. Editing. Proofreading.
Around the world, around the clock.
What we do
We create engaging content for the advertising and marketing industry.
If you’re an advertising agency, marketing department or government organisation, we can help you create polished, error-free professional communications that inspire actions and get results. We can operate independently or as an extension of your team, either remotely or in person if you’re based in Canberra.
Whatever your industry, our professional copywriters can help with your content needs. Our writers are experienced in advertising copywriting, content provision, content strategy, content design, plain English writing, UX writing, technical writing and plain English training.
Our experienced editors can suggest ways to enhance your written content and polish your writing to a professional level. This means correcting the grammar, as well as recommending changes which improve the flow, make the meaning clearer and enrich the user experience / customer journey.
Proofreading is the final check for spelling, punctuation, grammar and consistency before a piece is published. Our team of expert proofreaders will spot typos, fix errors and ensure your design is consistent, so your marketing materials are correct, professional and ready to print or publish.
The team at Catch the Sun are content geniuses.”
Nadean Mamic, Associate Director – Projects and Innovation, University of Canberra
