PR is dead. Long live PR!

This is what we do. Read all about it - or just watch the video!

Frank is a PR agency that loves getting a reaction.  When we started Frank in 2000, we knew that the best campaigns were those that had that special ingredient - the ones which kickstarted word-of-mouth, or what we called Talkability®

Nowadays, Talkability® is just one part of what PR needs to deliver.  It's just one of the REACTIONS brands need to create. And that's why today, we're an agency that's not just about public relations but PUBLIC REACTIONS®.

And when it comes to making ideas happen, we're ruthless in delivery...and evaluation, too.

We're Frank with our clients and they're frank with us.  The result is an ultra-effective, down-to-earth, open and honest approach to PR.  That's why we're one of the industry's most decorated agencies, responsible for some of its most famous campaigns.

Check out our TROPHY CABINET!

EVERYONE loves getting a reaction.  Whether it's getting a rise out of someone or a round of applause, you know someone's taken notice of you.  And better yet, taken action.  Brands might want public relations - but
what they need nowadays is
PUBLIC REACTIONS®

Frankly Speaking...

What people are saying about Frank

Everybody's talking about Frank.  Okay, it's because we specifically asked them to.  On Camera.  But they said some nice things anyway.  Here's some of our favourites.

Clients

We work with some great clients, from household name brands to small entrepreneurial start-ups. If you own a TV, or a computer, or read newspapers and magazines, chances are you've seen our work without realising it.

We create the kind of word-of-mouth buzz that takes over and does a client's best marketing. We call this Talkability®, and for our clients it means their names on the lips of the nations' mouths, and the happy chimes of new sales.

Coming to a town near you

London. Manchester. Sydney. New York. Azerbaijan.*

Like Frank London, but with added Northern Soul.  Cut from the same award-winning cloth, it shares the same DNA - a Manchester based genetic clone of its London counterpart.  So what makes Manc Frank different? Well essentially nothing - it was bred to achieve perfection.  Perfectly placed for the new Media City, it means all Frank clients can have on-the-ground representation and expertise.  Manc Frank: bridging the north/south divide since 2012.

Frank opened down under in 2009 and has quickly become one of Sydney's hottest creative agencies.  From getting the world memory champion to memorise the entire phone book for Yellow Pages, to getting the nation wearing Lucky Undies for Solo, to introducing Sydney's first Lamborghini taxi to promote EA's Need for Speed game, Frank Australia campaigns have hijacked the media agenda and got consumers across Australia talking.  Polly Atherton heads up down under.

Frank PR went Stateside in September 2012 and got off to a flying start after making the front page of the NY Times.  Frank USA has attracted some of the sharpest media professionals, including a former editor of gawker.com, a producer of MTV's famed 'Spring Break', and a luxury communications specialist from fashion giant Coach.  The team is headed by Ian Twinn.  He, like many Americans, loves the British spirit and hopes to inject creativity and urgency into the US consumer PR scene.
