Client case studies

Client: Key Centre for Women’s Health in Society,
The University of Melbourne

The projects

www.yoursexhealth.org, a sex education and reproductive health website aimed at adolescents, for an international audience. www.yoursexhealth.org evolved into a series of related projects that were supervised by Professor Doreen Rosenthal AO, then Director of the Key Centre for Women’s Health in Society.

  • Collaborating on planning website’s structure and content
  • Researching and writing 120 texts and seven dramatised scripts
  • Sub-editing and content management of 25,000 words
  • Supervising translation into French and Spanish
  • Planning and running a marketing campaign to launch the website.

    The marketing campaign included promotion internationally via the internet; national media coverage for mainstream and niche audiences; direct marketing to 50,000 university students across five states, and hundreds of teachers and principals via their professional associations, as well as reaching teenagers via grassroots health organisations and local municipal councils.

    We also wrote copy for award-winning entries in high-profile competitions. The www.yoursexhealth.org website was judged ‘Best in Class’ in the 2007 Interactive Media Awards for the education category.

What clients say about Fullpoint Media

David Bruce
Communications Manager
Bushfire Cooperative Research Centre

Fullpoint Media has helped the Bushfire Cooperative Research Centre share our world-class research with a broad range of end users, including scientists, fire fighters, policymakers and community groups.

Since 2008, Fullpoint Media has produced and edited a diverse portfolio of our key publications, from field guides to annual reports. Most notably, Fullpoint Media has worked on dozens of issues of Fire Note, our most widely disseminated research translation publication.

It's a pleasure to work with Fullpoint Media – their meticulous attention to detail, capacity to liaise with researchers and professional approach has supported our success in reaching our target audiences.

Jackie Van Vugt
Former Director, Communications & Marketing
VicHealth (Victorian Health Promotion Foundation)

Fullpoint Media’s Brian and Kay have worked on many media and writing projects with VicHealth. They have been able to step in quickly and confidently when we’ve had staff absences, or if our project load has gone beyond our internal capacity. Many of our programs deal with complex issues and sometimes it can be a challenge to cut through to the single clear idea to be communicated. However, Brian and Kay have always succeeded and their turnaround is very quick.  I can easily recommend them to other organisations needing media support.

Robert Masters FPRIA
Chairman
Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation

Fullpoint Media's expertise and professionalism have been highly valued by the Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation. Since 2008, their work for the Foundation has included redesigning, writing and producing the Giving Melbourne newsletter, fundraising communications and editing our annual report, as well as providing pragmatic advice. We have particularly appreciated their sensitivity when dealing with our donors and grant recipients, who may have experienced tragic circumstances but are willing to share their stories to encourage community support. I highly recommend Fullpoint Media to any organisation needing a responsive and responsible communications provider.

Christine Winskill
Stakeholder Relations Officer
MMG Rosebery

Fullpoint Media's services have helped MMG to foster closer relationships with our workforce and local communities at Rosebery Mine in Tasmania and Century Mine in Queensland. Distance has been no barrier to working with Fullpoint Media – they've made it easy for us to produce our internal communications, including our newsletters that keep everybody informed. We've come to rely on their hands-on expertise, flexible approach and high quality work.

Rebecca Bond
School Manager
Melbourne School of Population and Global Health
University of Melbourne

The School of Population and Global Health's long-term relationship with Fullpoint Media has been highly productive and rewarding. Fullpoint Media's services have included producing our annual report since 2006, guiding us through a major rebranding, and providing a strong communications strategy for one of our new centres. They also provide website content across a diverse range of research topics that highlight the valuable work of our research teams. Fullpoint Media's approach is always highly professional and flexible and we know we can call on them for sound strategic advice and practical solutions for our communications needs.
