We’ve been helping clients  plan, create, deliver, and manage content since 1989. At Parallax, we focus on content, specializing in plain language writing and editing, business communications, content strategy consulting, content analysis,  and content reuse consulting. We take a strategic approach to all your communication needs.

We treat content as a business asset. Whether we are crafting communications plans, developing technical documentation, creating brochures, or planning content reuse and content management strategies, we put the content and its audiences first. Our experience has taught us that effective communication starts with clear, concise writing and finishes with capable, hands-on project management.
