About Artistic Origins (AO)

email me to discuss your project.

Artistic Origins (AO) was born out of necessity on June 23, 1995 when Dawn Ireland needed a company to offer her technical writing services.

How it all began

Dawn Ireland worked for Compaq Computer from 1984 to1991 writing maintenance and service guides for desktop and laptop computers, software guides, user guides, hardware guides, installation guides, white papers, video scripts and a variety of other documentation.


In 1991 Dawn was downsized in the first layoff at Compaq Computer. It was imperative to get back in the door as a contractor, so she created Artistic Origins, her technical writing company. Dawn provided technical writing services as a contractor to Compaq Computer from 1992 to 1998.

The First Award

While working at Compaq Computer, Dawn received the Award of Excellence from the Society of Technical Communicators (STC) for a Compaq Computer maintenance and service guide.
