Annual Report / Corporate Plain English Writing and Design Experts Since 2000 

Australia’s company of choice for plain english business writing service, training and graphic design.

Editorial services

Andrew Pegler Media was founded on the belief that everyone should have access to easy-to-understand, concise business writing. We call this plain English and are proud to be the enemy of gobbledegook, official-ese, legal-ese and bureaucrat-ese. By helping you stay ‘on-brand’ and talk more directly to your customers, investors, electorates and employees, we make you a more effective communicator.

Graphic Design Services

Our graphic design solutions communicate information in the most legible and engaging way.

Every element on every page has a clear purpose. Our documents and reports never say, ‘Look at me’, they say ‘Look at this’. Every design element on every page informs and engages. Our crisp, clear, visually appealing design will reinforce your brand. We can also animate your results and statistics with clear, easily digestible and artful infographics, charts, tables and icons.
