Semantic solutions for modern communications.

Whether looking for concise and rapidly absorbed simplicity, or luxurious and dynamic linguistic ornamentation, Word Garden can construct or renovate your copy with clarity and eloquent coherence.

Word Garden offers an array of semiotic services such as writing and editing copy, sloganeering, branding and logo design, as well as screenplay and manuscript consultations in fields such as neuroscience, biology, technology, socio-economic futurism, occult mystical traditions, altered states of consciousness and more.

Evan, your linguistic liaison, semantic strategist and copy artist, delights in helping people carefully express their concepts and nuanced sentiments.

Metaphor mechanic, syntactical acrobat, conjurer of complex connotations, Evan is also an aspiring design maven with honed aesthetics and modest graphics and web-design skills. More encompassing content, design and consultative services are offered through Word Garden’s parent organization, Enodia, which also serves as a demonstration of Word Garden copywriting.

In his work, Evan aims for balance and genuine synergy: bridging ideological islands and depolarizing paradoxes in order to assist radical adaptation and facilitate optimal human experience through artful communication.

Let’s discuss how I can help your project.

Content development.

Screenplay and manuscript consultations.

Everytime a stereotypical misconception arises within an otherwise transporting story, the topical experts in the audience experience the unsettling ache of a hole inside grow ever-so-slightly larger. Too many stupendous works of cinema and art drop the ball when it comes to references of niche material such as science, technology, counter cultures, conspiracies, esoteric practices, or socio-economic philosophies. And far too often this occurs in genres that attract those very experts, such as sci fi does to techies and science geeks, or historical dramas to history buffs. The more specialized a piece of content or context, the more interested and attentive those authorities will be.

Let’s make your story and it’s backdrops bulletproof.

Introducing greater authenticity and knowledge into your script or narrative helps to both anchor and propel it. And the best part about weaving accuracy and informed perspective into the structure and content of a creative work, is that truth is not only stranger, but also more terrifying, beautiful, and amazing than fiction ever could be.
