As a visiting company working with local partners to present an ambitious and unusual production in an off-the-beaten-track venue at the 2017 Fringe, we needed someone to represent us who was highly attuned to both the demanding conditions of the Fringe and the wider cultural ecology of the city. Owen’s calm and grounded approach, his genuine enthusiasm for the work, and his ability to build and sustain authentic relationships with a broad range of contacts was the perfect complement to our risky but rewarding Fringe venture. Owen asked gentle but searching questions about the brief and helped us to clarify our objectives and play to our strengths. He was present on the ground when it counted, always good-humoured, and kept us thoroughly informed as to what was going on behind the scenes. We were extremely pleased with the profile achieved and with the level of press, industry and public engagement with the work, and we look forward to working with Oh Really Creative again at the earliest opportunity.

“Owen helped us in the 8 weeks leading up ‘Local Heroes: Scottish Design at Edinburgh Airport’ to develop a broad ranging and high quality PR strategy. He helped us to clarify what type of PR we wanted – and where – across print and digital channels resulting in high impact (and high value) features from the BBC to Design Week and Vogue. Owen was also invaluable in coaching me as the project director in how to successfully execute interviews for TV and radio.”

The Harri-Parris: The Leaving Do

‘Thank you to you both for everything you did for The Harri-Parris at this year’s Edinburgh Festival. It was an exciting and tough 4 weeks but we always felt that we were in very safe hands with you guys. I particularly enjoyed our weekly meetings when I would arrive all a little tired and emotional and then after a good catch up would leave feeliing a lot better about the whole experience! We’re also really pleased with the amount of press coverage the show had and we now have a fantastic selection of quotes to use in the future.’

“Owen was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. He always had our best interests in mind and was flexible and easy-going without ever compromising the integrity of our work. His sense of humor allowed us to have a great deal of fun while we collaborated and he was always open to our ideas or special requests.

I would highly recommend working with Owen for PR in the arts and hope to use his services again myself in the future.”

“I thought I’d drop you a line to say a very big thank you for all of your help with coverage in this year’s Metro supplements. Without your assistance with pictures, press releases and review tickets before and during the festival, it would have been impossible to put together the supplements and give Metro readers the best possible service this year. I am extremely grateful and I look forward to working with you again in the near future.”
