We believe all knowledge is worth pursuing. Our clients are published via traditional and non-traditional paths: if a writer can’t find a way to realize their work through existing publishing models, we will make a new way. Our experience in facilitating scientific understanding in readers of all backgrounds has helped us shape a solid formula for turning an author’s fanbase into committed readers and backers.
Lab & Research Technology
Talk Science To Me has worked with a number of international science and technology companies developing next generation equipment and processes, from large-scale electronic imaging to cutting-edge tools and lab devices for cancer research. Our ongoing involvement ranges from drafting and building marketing campaigns across multiple regions and dialects with image- and graphic-design accompaniment, to extensive research and writing for research and white papers.
We’re also on call with returning and new clients for late-breaking updates and campaigns, for example responding to customer demands for COVID-19 information and equipment solutions with clear and concise writing and information graphics.
BC Water & Waste Association
We developed and proposed a new set of information graphics and accompanying style guides in part of an update to the BCWWA’s graphic standards. A number of example statistics were incorporated to show real-world use in digital media and printed reports, with an emphasis on bold, clean, and clear visuals, as well as variations to keep presentations flexible and adaptable for BCWWA staff and contributors.
The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) is a non-partisan, non-profit charity with a focus on policy research and analysis of sustainable development has garnered global recognition.
From 2009 to 2018 we provided copy and stylistic editing for many IISD projects, including the Climate Risk Management reports and the Pimachiowin Aki UNESCO World Heritage site proposal. Copy editing and proofreading services were most notably supplied for the institute’s State of Sustainability Initiatives reports in 2014 and 2016. In addition we provided full report design and layout for both print and digital distribution. Other projects included the institute’s Trade and Green Economy handbook, Gender and Energy Sector, and Climate Readiness reports.
Our team provided interdisciplinary support for IISD, working closely with communications and publications staff at the organization in order to create highly polished, easily accessible documents that accurately reflect IISD’s mission.
One of IISD’s key objectives is making information readily available; their archive is freely accessible to all readers, and Talk Science To Me is proud to have worked on dozens of the publications within it.
Canadian Blood Services
Canadian Blood Services (CBS) oversees blood supply for the Canadian population outside of Quebec.
In addition to developing visual library guides for CBS’s website, Talk Science to Me helped establish and write for the CBS blog, a professional resource about the diversity of transfusion practice and technology including topics relating to platelets, the use of mice in research and the history of blood transfusion.
CBS also administers its highly competitive Graduate Fellowship Program, with Talk Science to Me enlisted to interview participants of the fellowship and highlight the program and its positive impacts to the Canadian government.
These interviews illustrated the diversity of projects (and, ultimately, careers) enabled by the program. Talk Science to Me, in collaboration with CBS staff, then crafted an essay based on these stories to present as an argument in favour of continued funding for the fellowship program.
