Jeanette Muscat | Little pink typewriter
Hello!Who is Little pink typewriter?Quals & things...

Hi! Thanks for swingin’ by.

Okay, I’m not really a typewriter – I’m a human! I don’t have a little pink typewriter (though I do have a little pink keyboard) and I do work in the 21st century, but I am passionate about the craft of writing and its traditional tools, like the little pink typewriter and its always handy sidekick, the little red pen…

I’m a copywriter, editor, content creator and curator, and self-confessed word-nerd.

I work with you – and other collaborators (your in-house creatives or external subcontractors) – to create content, print or digital products that help you better communicate with your clients (and potential clients).

I develop quality content and products that are on-brand, on-message, and create engagement.

While I write and edit copy for diverse sectors and audiences, I specialise in technical content for professional services firms and SMEs in engineering, architecture, construction and property.

Real name: Jeanette Muscat, but most people call me JB.

I love words (obviously), about as much as I love shoes, red velvet cupcakes, a well-made Aperol Sour (needs the egg white) and dogs.

I was born and bred in Brisbane (aka Brissie), Australia. After snagging a journalism degree and freelancing around the traps primarily in the local music and arts industry, I went for a sticky-beak in the UK. Two years later, then another four in Dublin (it happens), I realised I loved travelling and meeting people from all over the world as much as I love words.

I cut my journo and copywriting teeth in street press and marketing consultancies, improved my Mac skills typesetting books in a publishing house (which I loved!) and doing all manner of things in advertising agencies. When I eventually settled back down under, back in Brissie, I combined the fine art of writing and editing with strategic communications, and learnt to balance right-brain creativity with the glamorous world of engineering / STEM and other technical fields. Who knew?

In 2012, I scooted across the country to Western Australia – and I’m still here! Although based in Perth, I help clients all over Australia – and beyond.

I’ve upskilled from print to digital (but still LOVE the print process) and written about everything from food and fashion to architecture and property, to engineering, mining and construction. I love getting stuck into messy, technical content.

Talk to me, so we can start to create.

I’ve been around the block – and the world.

My 20+ years’ copywriting, editing and publishing experience spans roles with magazines and digital agencies, a publishing house (Dublin), global engineering consultancies (Brisbane and Perth), PR firms (Brisbane and Perth), and the public sector.

While academia is important for some more than others, experience is what really matters. For what it’s worth, I’ve got a couple of pieces of paper too:
Bachelor of Arts – Journalism, Media, Communication
Graduate Certificate in Arts – Professional Communication, Critical Reasoning, Human Rights

Testimonials

Having worked in engineering and other technical industries, Jeanette understood our business straight away. She developed our key messages and company profile, and wrote, edited and published content for our website, capability statement and news stories. As our business and priorities evolved, she managed the changes without any drama. She just gets on with it. She is intelligent, down-to-earth and very easy to deal with.

Declan White
We initially engaged Little pink typewriter to provide copywriting and editing services for our property development website, Third Avenue. Jeanette’s content writing experience in engineering, construction and property (and familiarity with the subject matter and terminology) helped immensely. The project had a compressed timeframe and Jeanette delivered the copy on-brief and ahead of agreed timeframes. She really hit the nail on the head in terms of the style and tone we were after, and it flowed beautifully. The whole team was so impressed and we've continued to work with Jeanette on our other projects.

Bolwarra Enterprises engaged Little pink typewriter to review our grant application for the Federal Government’s Manufacturing Modernisation Fund Round 2. Our deadline was tight, but after a quick email and phone brief with Jeanette, she got cracking. She proofread, edited and provided easy-to-understand changes for our application. She not only tweaked our wording, but helped us draw out and amplify the project’s strengths, to put us in the best position possible to be successful in our application. Due to Jeanette’s dedication and fast turnaround, we made the deadline no problem. I highly recommend her services.

Tom Barnes
I've known Jeanette for 15+ years, initially when we were respective state marketing managers for global engineering consultancy, Aurecon. When we first met, she blew me away! A smart, savvy, stylish wordsmith, Jeanette brings a unique and professional voice to everything she creates. Her extensive and diverse experience allows her to move seamlessly from one industry to another and regardless of the requirements - creative or technical - nail the brief! I cannot recommend Jeanette highly enough.

Devra Adler
I needed to update my website copy so it provided a better picture of the services I offer - and reflected my experience and values. I was referred to Jeanette, who helped me clarify and articulate my thoughts, then created the content with minimal guidance. I am really happy with how my web content reads and clearly illustrates my services and my brand. Thanks so much, Jeanette.

Jeanette got straight to the essence of what we wanted to evoke and understood our background. No cheesy words or phrases! She was a pleasure to work with and was happy to re-work anything if required.

Victoria D’Alisa
Jeanette worked with us on our overall branding and messaging, wrote copy for our marketing materials and advised us about the best ways to represent and market each of our service offerings. She was always easy to deal with – straight to the point – and would explain her changes or suggestions so we could make informed decisions. I would recommend Jeanette to anyone considering utilising her skill set within their business.

How it works

I don't just start frantically tapping away at my little pink typewriter keys. I work with you (and collaborators as needed) to create – your content, print and/or digital products – through my Little pink process.

It starts with a brief. Without a brief, I won’t get your voice and messaging right.

Have a peek below at the fabulous infographic of my process illustrated the amazing Jo Wilson Design.
