The people behind the “wish I thought of that” idea. The ones who think “I’m not sure this is a good idea, but…” and do it anyway. The entrepreneurs whose ambitions are way beyond the norm… they’re our kind of people.
EAST VILLAGE. is an agency for the forward-thinkers, innovators, disrupters and challenger brands. We love a scale-up with a strong story, and enjoy nothing more than profiling the people behind them. PR is a powerful way to take your business to the next level, and we’re the team that’s on-hand to support that rise to fame. That’s why the Covid-19 pandemic was our most successful period to date: as an agency that thrives on challenge and change, not only were we quick to adapt, but we also attracted those likeminded clients who saw it as a chance to do things differently.
For almost a decade, TeamEV has been working alongside the best-in-the-business to deliver award-winning PR campaigns, engaging social media strategies, exciting influencer partnerships, and show-stopping events. We’ve built our own reputation as a go-to Birmingham PR agency and go above-and-beyond to build our clients’ brands too.
We pride ourselves on working with the organisations who share good values and great stories – putting purpose and impact at the heart of their everyday operations.
WHERE IT ALL BEGAN…
An award-winning PR agency in Birmingham, EAST VILLAGE. was founded by PR and marketing expert Tara Tomes in 2013 after more than a decade working both agency and client-side for independent retailers, renowned fashion brands, large scale exhibitions and everything in between.
Born out of a passion for collaboration and demonstrating great values, Tara wanted to create the kind of agency that she would be proud to be a part of; introducing flexible working, creating ongoing training and development programmes, and pushing young talent to the fore.
EAST VILLAGE. began life as an agency “centred around team culture” and that remains at the heart of our mission to this day. We focus on the things that matter to make sure we’re an environment where each and every team member feels they belong.
We do everything that we do with what we’ve coined as #PRwithpersonality
THE TEAMEV CHARTER
We believe that the value of a business lies in its values as a business, and that’s why we’re committed being better today than we were yesterday. The TeamEV Charter is just one way that we do that; putting our pledges into policy in every area that matters to us.
A PASSION FOR PURPOSE
In this purpose-driven era, if you want to stand out from the crowd, you have to stand up for what matters. That’s why our clients all share one common thing: a passion for creating change and helping people to live better lives. Our mission is to change the headlines with headlines that change the world.
