IDIDTHAT Featured Stories

Let us tell your story.

Our super experienced content studio will meet with you to conceptualise ways to tell your stories. Because we are writing the piece from IDIDTHAT’s perspective, you avoid that pesky self-promotion thing, which can sometimes be a bit awks. We write stories with a knowledge and understanding of who your audience is and our engagement to date is proof of that. And wait, there’s more! It’s not dry-scratch-your-eyes-out-with-a-spoon-boring. Can we get an AMEN!?

People don’t get to ‘see’ what your company looks and acts like until they’re either a client of yours or they’re working for you. Yes, you know your company well, after all, you work there all day (and night), and sometimes forget that nobody else knows what it’s like. All these stories are usually left for the pitch room. Why?!
