WE WORK WITH
EAST VILLAGE. is the go-to Birmingham PR agency for brands who put purpose and impact at the heart of what they do.
Diving into the detail to understand what truly makes you unique, we build buy-in from the inside-out.
We help organisations just like you grow and protect strong reputations, become credible thought-leaders, attract and retain the best talent, and outshine the competition.
If we had a penny for every time we heard that “PR doesn’t have ROI…”
PR leverages the value in your values. It’s about so much more than column inches.
Starting with our signature EV.aluation, we get a better understanding of where you’re at and where you want to be. We then develop and deliver the right strategy to get you there, building a sense of belonging along the way.
Our clients all share a passion for making a difference. Through strategic PR we show them how to align purpose, people, and profit.
We practice what we preach, and lead by example.
EAST VILLAGE. is centred around team culture: challenging typical agency standards to offer more flexible job roles, ensuring true representation at every level, and providing perks that actually make a difference. From generous holiday allowances and a paid day off for your birthday, to unlimited training budgets and free access to therapy and counselling, we add value to our team’s lives as well as our clients’ campaigns.
We pride ourselves on being an agency challenging the status quo, for brands challenging expectations.
OUR 2021 IN REVIEW
Pieces of coverage
“EAST VILLAGE. are one of the best agencies that I have had the pleasure to work with. They are great at being creative and proactive, and use very clever and subtle tone of message to targeted audiences. They will deliver a brief yet add value by creating even more exposure on social media channels with their attention to detail and partnership approach to client relationships. I highly recommend them.”
Longbridge Town Centre
“It’s been a pleasure to collaborate with Hattie, Holly, and the rest of the EAST VILLAGE. team on the opening of Treetop Adventure Golf Birmingham. We received excellent care, from pre- to post-launch, and leaned on their fantastic local expertise to ensure maximum impact. We look forward to continuing working with the team in the future.”
Treetop Adventure Golf
“Working with EAST VILLAGE. has been an absolute dream! They have done so much to help us tell our story and grow as a business. Whether speaking with new clients or partners, we regularly hear the phrase ‘I see you guys everywhere’ and a big part of this is due to the fantastic work of the EV team. They are always there when we need them and constantly impress us with the work that they produce, whether we are looking to announce the launch of a new product or share news on impact that we’ve created, they always know how to make it happen!”
Birmingham Enterprise Community
“We cannot thank the Team at EAST VILLAGE. enough for their hard work and support with the Longbridge Shopping social media accounts and ongoing events. With their support we have hosted some fabulous events in the town centre and we look forward to further successes in the future. We would have no hesitation in recommending EAST VILLAGE., as they bring their positivity and enthusiasm into everything they do.”
Marketing and Customer Experience Co-Ordinator
For the launch of our new brand proposition, Rouge, following a full site refurb at the Bullring we went looking for a hyper-local PR agency that could bring fresh eyes to our fresh take on Café Rouge. We found the perfect partner in EAST VILLAGE. – from the first pitch, when they made us feel like old friends, to co-hosting our launch event with local influencers and the well connected that we needed to help spread the word. They were a pleasure to work with and drove some great results.
EAST VILLAGE. has been an integral part to our Marketing and Communications work at the Foundation through supporting us with press releases, coverage, campaign planning, all whilst being a delight to work with. Our account manager, Jodie Tipper, has been imperative to representing the work of the Foundation within the region. We can’t thank Tara and the rest of EV. enough for believing in us and being part of the HoECF team!
Heart of England Community Foundation
“Hattie, Tara and the EV. team really pulled out all the stops for the opening of our first Birmingham bar. They found the perfect balance between strategic account management and hands-on ‘doing’, and no task was too small for them to roll their sleeves up when our small team felt stretched. We were able to rely upon their considerable expertise and experience to create a memorable and successful opening that felt distinctly Vagabond and distinctly Birmingham.”
Rebecca Di Mambro
“Putting it simply EAST VILLAGE. have been fantastic to work with! We needed a PR & social agency that not only understood our fast-paced and multi-faceted business but also gelled with our personality and brand… EAST VILLAGE.have fit the bill perfectly! The team engage closely with several stakeholders across our company disciplines and provide exceptional quality work, be it across our social media channels or public relations, all whilst retaining a fun and energetic style that fits brilliantly with our business and its values. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tara and the team to anyone who is considering engaging their services!”
We engaged the services of trusted EV. to deliver a successful launch campaign for our client Jukeboxers and they certainly delivered. From our initial consultation with Tara, who was brimming with ideas; to the execution and management by Hattie, Holly and our account manager Jodie: the whole process was seamless from start to finish. Friendly, accommodating and, as always, a pleasure to work with!
