Clear. Concise. Compelling.
These are the essential elements of good communications, whether a marketing brochure, a book, or a Web site. Regrettably, far too much communications, particularly business writing, is obscure, overwritten, and weak. On this critical point, we defer to the late, iconic essayist, William Strunk, Jr.:
"Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not that the writer make all sentences short, or avoid all detail and treat subjects only in outline, but that every word tell."
At Dvorak's Keyboard, we make sure that every word we produce for our clients "tells."
Why Choose Dvorak's Keyboard?
First, because good writing takes time -- time you don't have or can't afford to spend inefficiently. As a proven professional, we enable you to shift valuable and scarce resources elsewhere. Second, because the depth and breadth of our experience usually means we need minimal time to understand your business and particular requirements. Third, because you would prefer to have a writer whose work has appeared regularly in top-tier media and whose clients have included a Fortune 500 company, several non-profits, business start-ups, and trade organizations -- all in the same week.
One Last Matter...
You may have heard about the "Dvorak" keyboard layout, an alternative to the ubiquitous QWERTY keyboard. While seldom used these days except among keyboard enthusiasts, the Dvorak keyboard still is celebrated widely for its efficiency, speed, and accuracy. Because, along with the Dvorak surname (no relation), our professional services share those attributes, the choice of name was inevitable.
