Seventy Seven Salon division launches

Seventy Seven PR has launched Seventy Seven Salon, an initiative that allows the agency to work with start-ups and emerging brands. A 'Salon Panel' will decide who the agency will work with and then anyone within the agency can pitch for the account. Associate Director, James Hoyle believes this will "encourage an entrepreneurial, new business spirit within [the] agency. It gives members of the team the opportunity to work with a brand that really gets their creative juices flowing and for the agency to potentially grow its skills, credentials and contacts in interesting, possibly new areas."

Seventy Seven Salon will take on a maximum of 4 clients a year, the first of which have been confirmed as School of Comedy, and new trade show - matter (more details regarding matter to follow). Contact.
