Medieval Methods – Modern Mission

With their beautifully decorative capital letters, medieval calligraphers are credited with the development of the Dropped Capital along with many other visual and typographical elements of today’s graphic design.

At Dropcapz Communications we aim to continue this medieval practice with a simple, modern mission: to draw attention to your business through words, pictures, publications and communications.

Whether it is a printed magazine, an e-newsletter, a brochure or a communications strategy, Dropcapz’s passion is to understand your business and bring your news, messages and stories to life with copy and design that is lively and sparking – whatever you want to publish.

We listen. We write. We design. We photograph. We advise. We pull it together. We deliver.
