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.

At Departure, we pride ourselves on finding the story behind every brand and figuring out the best way to tell you.

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.
