More about 89up

In 2018, 89up delivered global coverage for the Toyota Mobility Foundation’s $4,000,000 global challenge, won the UK consumer account for GoFundMe and ran PR campaigns for organisations from 38 Degrees, Reporters Without Borders, Best for Britain, Body Shop and Nesta to the makers of the Oscar-shortlisted documentary The Silence Of Others.

As well as getting our clients coverage in 2018, we made the news ourselves. 89up Think’s report into Russian disinformation during the EU referendum was reported widely in the media including The Economist, Daily Mail, The Guardian,

In October 2018, 89up’s digital team spotted a new ‘fake news’ website spreading disinformation via targeted social media advertising on Facebook. The exposure of Mainstream Network saw coverage of the agency across the globe from the New York Times to The Guardian, TechCrunch, BBC, Time Magazine, FT, Wired.

Finally, 89up’s Lab team has been developing new software for non-profits to build landing and petitions pages to drive new supporter and member acquisitions that will be launched in Q1 2019. As a small agency, 89up punches above its weight in both winning big client accounts and also its impact in the world. So if you fancy joining a small, smart team with big ambitions - you will unquestionably get a number of benefits in return, which you would be far less likely to see in a big agency environment.

You will experience more exposure to senior team members (experts in a variety of fields who are on hand to offer masterclasses and mentoring), opportunities (especially within the integrated marketing mix - so you learn about other specialisms and try your hand at them), creativity and content creation (with a flat structure, everyone idea's here are valued), to clients and client management. All of these things will arguably enable you to hone your talent, while broadening your skill-set and fast tracking your career progression, in a passionate, supportive and friendly environment.

We have a hands-on approach to producing our work and produce video, animation, motion graphics, graphic design and podcasts in-house.
