WHY WE DO IT
The four things we hold sacred at DawBell are...
Passionate about the people and projects we work
Being part of an amazing, supportive team
Creating exceptional work
Staying ahead of the shifts in audience engagement
We work in a people business, so getting these four things right helps us to create incredible, innovative, insightful, award winning work, which make our clients very happy!
We have a thirty strong team who sell an experience and a service, and that can only be the very best because we are all motivated, creative and passionate about what we do.
WHO WE ARE
DawBell was first founded in 2009 from a tiny office opposite Charing Cross station in the heart of London.
Our goal was to re-invent the model of the traditional entertainment PR agency, into something bolder and smarter, that also had a much wider business scope.
We started the company during a recession, which gave us a lean start-up mentality built on being smart, creative, efficient and approachable.
This was a time when the media landscape and entertainment industry were going through rapid change as they continue to do so today.
We wanted to stay at the forefront of our business by evolving with these changes; a finger on the pulse while constantly looking ahead.
WHAT WE DO
Whether they are a superstar or a super brand, our clients all want two things: relevance and reputation.
We approach strategy with all our clients keeping these two very important points at the core of every campaign, as they are the key to long term success.
We have always been at the centre of popular culture, giving us a very unique perspective on engagement with every type of audience.
Our work has not gone unnoticed … We made it into the Top 5 Best New Agencies at the 2011 PR Week Awards as well as being nominated every year in our existence at the Music Week Awards - winning twice! We were in the shortlist of the Top 5 Small Agencies in the UK for the PR Week Awards as well as the Top 6 Specialist Agencies in 2016. We won the Music Week Award - PR Campaign of the Year for 2017 for our work with Craig David and were nominated in 2018 for our work on Queens Of The Stone Age’s latest studio album ‘Villains’.
We look after some of the most powerful influencers in popular culture today - Paul McCartney, Elton John, Gary Barlow/Take That, Rihanna, Pharrell Williams, James Corden, Harry Styles, Beck, Queens Of The Stone Age, Craig David, Shawn Mendes and Big Shaq! - who interact with hundreds of millions of people every single day.
Our brand clients include some of the biggest and most important operators in entertainment: Universal Music, Sony Music, Warner Music, The Isle Of Wight Festival, musical.ly, Amnesty International and Sofar Sounds, Casio Music, The Mercury Prize and The BRIT Awards.
We also enjoy working closely and regularly with a number of charities including: The BRITs Trust, War Child, End The Silence, Nordoff Robbins and Children In Need.
Being experts in the mechanics of engagement
Our influence and connections
8 years experience in communication
Understanding the business of brands
Research and insight
Creativity and innovation
Media, technology, entertainment, products, business and people’s habits are constantly evolving. Our business is built on this principle and is designed to stay agile enough to adapt to continuous change.
We know what works now will not have the same impact in six months time, so we are constantly knitting together these ever evolving key areas of influence, whether they are newspapers, magazines, websites, TV shows, brands, blogs or people, to make bespoke campaigns that have real, measurable impact.
