We are a communications agency that helps brands to understand the world and the world to understand them

About Us

In the past, the PR industry has been split into two factions. One prizes creativity and the power of publicity. The other, business understanding and reputation. Clients have had to choose a side. We created Third City because we don’t think they should have to.

What We Do

We offer all the services you’d expect from a PR firm, and others you’d probably associate with digital, advertising, market research agencies and management consultancies:

PR, brand and communications strategy, campaign and channel planning, stakeholder comms, brand planning and positioning, media relations, events and sponsorship, crisis management, media training, digital and social media consultancy
