PR, Social & Creative Agency

Every brand is going somewhere, let us inject irresistible momentum to get you there.

We don’t just offer interdisciplinary media services, delivered by straight talking experts. We wrote the book on exceptional PR, social media, marketing and comms evaluation.

A PRCA Approved Measurement Champion agency, this team spans industry-changing veterans with more than 20 years experience, and young digital natives alike.

Our prize is your ROI

Our exceptional results are born from a hunger for original ideas and concepts, whether partnering with entrepreneurs and startups, or challengers and market leaders.

Clients understand exactly how we work, and what we achieve on their behalf.

Real momentum cannot be built through one channel, so we offer dynamism. Broad specialists, giving real solutions to modern requirements. And when they move, we do too.

Built on guiding principles of courage, inspiration, agility, restlessness, and accountability, together we can drive campaigns forward, raise profiles higher, and surpass expectations with new thinking, energy, innovation and ingenuity.

Welcome to Smoking Gun PR - fresh fuel for your engine.
