Remote, but not removed

We’re different to most agencies in that we work while we travel. The change in scenery motivates us and allows us to collaborate with people around the world.

Content that shines

We create blogs, record voiceovers, write feature articles and craft web copy in a way that’s different, helping you to find a voice that’s uniquely yours.

Expert writers

As award-winning journalists and editors for the BBC, Al Jazeera, ABC, Sky News, Community Newspaper Group and many B2B publications, we have worked in the media for a combined two decades.

Testimonials

Carmen is an absolute delight to work with! She has helped me refine my business mission and values, develope content for my website and company brochure, and recently helped me write a finalist application for the City of Wanneroo Business Awards! She has been awesome every step of the way, from helping me develop my ideas to understanding my writing style and producing written content that is just what I wanted and more. She has not only taken the stress out of writing for me, but has also helped me develop my business and articulate my true vision. Thank you Carmen!

Susannah PiekFounder, Santosha Bookkeeping

Carmen did amazing work for us on the Faculties and Schools web project at the University of Western Australia. She shaped websites in a way that would have not otherwise been possible. She was a huge help to the team with her positive, can-do attitude and her seemingly never-ending patience and perseverance.

Kirsten HyamEditor, University of Western Australia

Carmen and Dave are both talented and professional. In working with myself and clients, their experience and insight come through in capturing and creating targeted messaging. In addition they are pleasant and enjoyable to work with. I highly recommend them!

Cynthia MackeyFounder, Winning Strategies LLC

We used Red Platypus for our app's media release. Within 24 hours they had created three different publications for differing audiences, and also provided us with invaluable advice and strategies for getting them in front of the right people. Needless to say, our story was picked up by major television and newspapers across our city, and gave us exactly the coverage we were looking for. A perfectly executed media release!

DAVID

HEAD CREATIVE

David is one of Australia’s top writers with more than fifteen years experience as a journalist for media outlets including the BBC and Fairfax Media. In his spare time, he writes novels and his literary skill saw him shortlisted for The Australian/Vogel’s Literary Award in 2017.
With a foundation of studies in Broadcasting at the prestigious Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), David built a career as a reporter for radio, TV and online news services in regional Australia before moving to London to work for Al Jazeera, Sky News and BBC World.

After reporting on the world for so long, Dave decided he needed to see more of it with his own eyes and so quit his day job to work on creative projects from all four corners of the globe. He is currently travelling around Australia in a caravan with his wife Carmen and daughter Ruby.

David works remotely, connecting with clients to create fluent and engaging content, while contributing articles to publications including The Australian and The Sydney Morning Herald.

CARMEN

HEAD COPYWRITER

If there’s one word to describe Carmen it would be ‘dedicated’. After knocking down the door of her local newspaper fresh out of university and not taking no for an answer, the editor-in-chief created a cadetship programme with her as the first cadet.
A year later she left Australia for the UK where over five years she worked as a writer, senior journalist and deputy editor, working her way up the career ladder writing for business magazines and websites.

In 2012 she joined a creative content agency where she became an account manager, helping clients such as Shell and the Royal Bank of Scotland to form effective content. She led the video team, writing client scripts and producing videos. She also compiled the company’s social media strategy during her time with the agency.

Deciding there was too much of the world left to explore, Carmen left the UK with Dave and travelled for three and a half years while producing content for clients between hikes to Machu Picchu and scuba diving in the Caribbean. They came home to Perth to have their daughter in 2016, and left to drive around Australia in 2018.

The trio are currently road tripping around Oz in a caravan, on an adventure that is expected to take 18 months.
