Babel began with the simple idea that communication with the written word typically wasn’t done well. The Tower of Babel in Biblical literature was a great structure built by the people of the world, bound by common language and understanding, until they were confounded and spread across the Earth for their arrogance. Babel Creative comes from that idea of shared understanding through language communicated well. Copywriting, copy proofing, digital content, creative writing, screenwriting, taglines, articles, blogs, speeches, biographies, ghost writing, social copy – all require words wielded well, and doing so is our domain.

Babel communicates meaning well with words. By using copy to refine and articulate concepts, we create an environment where those concepts take hold. Good copy isn’t about complexity, or obscurity, but accessibility, each word tailored to comfortably anchor an idea in a reader’s mind.

We communicate meaning well, transplanting ideas between minds, in the process facilitating wonder at what is and what could be.

Communicate meaning well.

Babel began on the simple premise that communication with the written word typically isn’t done well. In Biblical literature the Tower of Babel was a great structure stretching towards heaven, built by a united humanity speaking a common language. Troubled by their arrogance, God confounded their language and scattered them across the world. Babel Creative comes from that idea of original shared understanding, a monument to unified language.

Ash Dighton

Director

Ash began working with words seriously drafting legal contracts for the purchase and sale of oil and gas, and through a convoluted series of events wound up running the media for one of Australia’s bigger Allied Health companies. Leaving to start Babel was the crystallisation of a long held dream to focus on using copy as a means of real distinction for commercial enterprises. He loves rowing, the Collected Fictions of Jorge Luis Borges and film. He dislikes unimaginative prose, lists and irony.

Tim Dighton

Creative Consultant

Tim has had a long professional relationship with language. He practised as a lawyer, predominantly in commercial litigation, before entering the public service with the Department of Education. As a civil servant, Tim’s experience is in corporate services and system reform, but he has also operated as the CEO of a large charity. Tim writes poetry and prose in his spare time with the long-term goal of finding a willing audience for his work.

I have worked with Ash for a few years now and his work has become instrumental in the growth of my business. He very quickly captured the style I needed to present what can be very dry science to a market place that is all about people. I totally trust his copywriting for me and often hand large pieces of projects to him to complete on my behalf. Apart from his exceptional work he is very easy and receptive to work with which is refreshing.

Chris Phillips

CEO Grey Matta Solutions

I am always reluctant to give personal references because in my 30 years business experience, they are often overstated. But in the case of Ash Dighton, I am happy to provide very strong support. I have worked with Ash in a digital capacity for some time now and his ability to create content that clearly articulates ideas is exceptional. Ash delivers his material on time and to a very high standard. He is a problem solver and an original thinker. I could not recommend him highly enough.

Patrick McGuire

CEO Marketplace Strategy Solutions

As a design studio with a focus on branding, being able to communicate effectively with copy is extremely important. We are a small and nimble team so being able to engage someone with Babel Creative’s skillset is vital in creating compelling branding and marketing communication.

Ash and his team are a pleasure to work with, they are quick-to understand our ideas and concepts and have great ability in translating that into beautifully written content which is engaging and on-brand.

We utilise Babel Creative’s skills for a range of different creative services, from brand name concepts, content writing, as well as more menial tasks like proofreading presentations and blog articles.

Whatever the job, Babel will always go above and beyond and deliver exceptional results. I see Babel as a long-term creative partner for our business and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services to other digital or design agencies, or direct to clients.

Not only are Babel great at what they do, they’re extremely enjoyable to work with. Win-win.
