Need a sharper edge?
Use a hedgehog!
Business writing is both an art and a science. Language does not merely convey meaning, it shapes thought, evokes emotion and drives behaviour. Flair is important but corporate writing is essentially about selling messages to your target audience – with style, clarity and purpose.
Today, Hedgehog Communications is one of the most established writing agencies in Singapore.
What We Do
Set up in 2002, Hedgehog Communications offers a full spectrum of copywriting services, from annual reports and corporate brochures to newsletters and websites.
Hedgehog Communications recognises the need for crisp, clear writing to achieve effective and competitive communication. We write with your objectives, target audience and medium in mind, so as to give you that professional edge and lustre in all your written communications.
You have the raw materials, we turn them into compelling content.
You have a draft, we make sure the language and organisation are good to go.
You want to reach out to your audience, we craft messages to drive customer action.
You wish to translate your English text into Chinese or vice versa, we do so purposefully, never word-for-word.
We also customise copywriting packages for clients who require ongoing or long-term copywriting support.
What We Believe
To reveal the power of communication through simplicity, clarity and creativity.
To champion the use of effective writing for business results.
We have a business creed which summarises the work ethics of Hedgehog Communications as well as the basis behind which we were formed.
We believe in delivering on our promises.
We believe in old-fashioned adages like integrity and reliability.
We believe in relationships.
We believe that creativity comes not from inspiration but passion.
We believe that work should be fun.
We believe in people.
Most of our writers have at least 10 years of experience in communications and writing, ensuring professionalism and quality in the work we produce.
