Every brand has a story. Let us help you find yours.

Hello boss,

Ever considered hiring a journalist?

Now, you may be thinking: who in their right mind would hire a journalist? They’re nosy, rude and – worst of all – they ask way too many questions.

And you’d be right on all counts.

At Departure, we believe that every brand has a story. We also pride ourselves on our team of veteran journalists,  storytellers and editorial writers. As you may have already noted, such a team is often afflicted with the vices listed above.

Please, have a seat, and let’s talk about those three vices. Don’t worry: while incurable, they’re certainly not contagious.

We’re nosy: We have a dogged attitude towards uncovering the truth. Sleepless nights spent on hours of research? Par for the course.

We’re rude: Tact is less important to us than candour, proactive feedback and complete honesty about what we’re able to deliver to our clients.

We ask way too many questions: In the same way that an ocean consists of a multitude of drops, a good story consists of the answers to the right questions.

To date, some of the wonderful clients we’ve had the privilege of directing these questions at include:

If the story behind your business is a question that needs answering, we’d love to work with you.
