The winged typewriter flew out of my head at 2am. Thankfully, I’d found a graphics guy to transform my crazy o’clock epiphany sketch into the Words on a Page logo.
There are quite a few alternative history science-fiction steampunk novels on my book shelf. Most of them are set in a dystopian Victoriana world of the retro-future, where steam powers modern devices that are uniquely crafted in brass and wood.
Steampunk is a bit edgy. It goes against convention.
I’m not your standard run-of-the-mill copywriter. Creativity counts. Character matters.
The typewriter taking flight could be a steampunk nod to the internet. The quill plugged into a socket playfully points to the retro-future amalgam.
My brand, particularly the tagline - modern communication powered by the traditional craft of writing – harnesses technological developments and also tips the hat to history, exposing a yearning for authentic, quality communication.
Between the lines, it’s also a little bit discerning.
Most people have the technological tools with which to shout something, anything into the cyber sphere. This sometimes feels like a dystopian world gone mad with white noise.
Quality writing matters and it can be the hero that makes a difference.
Wordsmithing is not a craft everyone can master. It requires passion and talent. The simplicity of great writing often hides the complexity of the workmanship.
Words on a Page was launched to create distinctive and tailored writing. It’s a bespoke service to help people and businesses who want their ideas to fly.
