About

You want to learn about us, and we'd like to get to know you too.

From Our Founder

Like most companies, Chevron Editing started with an idea.

Except that idea wasn’t winning advertising awards or being ‘the best in Australia’ or creating a digital marketing empire.  It was a simple idea – I wanted to help students like me get better marks by editing their assignments.

That’s right.  Chevron Editing started when I was still at Griffith University, in the final year of my creative writing degree, as a student editing service.

I realised that there were plenty of students who needed the help of a professional editor but couldn’t afford giant hourly fees.  I also realised I was pretty good at editing – good enough, as it turned out, to graduate with First Class Honours.

Editing became a nice source of side-income for me, but I quickly discovered that while I loved the art of transforming average assignments into excellent ones, it was helping people achieve results that was my true passion.

And that’s when I segued into marketing.  It’s a field where creativity and customer service collide – marketers help connect consumers with a solution for their problems, and get to have fun while doing it.  More than that, we help empower businesses to grow and expand their reach.

Fast forward a few years, and Chevron Editing has evolved from its humble beginnings.  We’re no longer just a one-man editing and writing team.

We do it all – websites, copy, SEO, corporate intelligence and more.  We’ve gone from helping students to collaborating with brands of all sizes (our clients range from a husband-and-wife vegetable business to the largest timeshare company in the world).

Most importantly, we’re still seeking lasting, meaningful relationships – I love helping businesses succeed on a holistic level, and I bring that attitude to Chevron Editing too.

We’re not Australia’s largest marketing agency, or its most technologically advanced.  We don’t have decades of experience (yet).  We don’t claim to be the best in the country (but we still like to think we’re pretty good).

What we bring to the table is passion, dedication and a commitment to excellence.  We want your brand to succeed, and we’re willing to go the extra mile to help you get there.

So, if you think we sound like the type of agency you want to work with, get in touch for an obligation-free chat.  If you’re based on the Gold Coast, I’d love to meet in person – coffee’s on me.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle

I segued into marketing because I love collaborating with brands and helping them succeed. Marketing is, at its core, about stories, and shaping the legacy of a company is something that’s both very difficult but incredibly rewarding.

I’ve worked with a number of businesses, big and small, across a broad range of industries, and I’m always looking to build relationships with new clients.

Our Commitments

Professionalism

We hold ourselves to the industry standards outlined by the Australian Standards for Editing Practice.

Confidentiality

We never reveal information gained during the course of interactions with clients, unless we gain authorisation to do so.

Integrity

We conduct our services in compliance with all aspects of Australian and Commonwealth law, and, in relevant situations, international or foreign law. If conflict of interest arises during our interactions with clients, we will swiftly and unequivocally declare this conflict, and ensure that such conflicts do not undermine our services in any way.

Our Ethos: The 3C Difference

Cogent

Our writing and editing services aim to clarify your message. You know what you want to say. We know how to say it. Just as importantly, our interactions with you are quick, clean and professional. We’re here to help you, not waste your time. ​

Conscientious

In writing and editing, there can be no incompetence or sloppiness. Having bad writing or insufficient editing is often worse than having none at all. Our staff are trained to a professional level, and approach all tasks with diligence and respect, ensuring that the finished product is matched to our rigorous standards of quality.

What Our Clients Say About Us

Chevron Editing has been a life saver for my four years of uni life, not just the editing is bang on to expert level, but the efficiency is exceptional, even when I ask help and advice at the last minute, they still manage to sort me out. If any student like me is struggling with their assignment, I could not think of a better choice of editing.
