Design Agency of the Year
In tandem with their seven-year anniversary, The Consultancy PR launched a new visual identity to reflect the design-centric portfolio of brands they represent – ushering in a new wave of growth. With their client list up by 33%, the agency strikes a balance between their long-standing relationships (making up half their roster) and new client categories including home scenting, beauty and wellness brands. This expansion means more opportunity for cross-client activations, enabling The Consultancy PR to offer what they call a “whole-home” experience to influencer partners – evidenced by their work on actress Bryce Dallas Howard’s LA home featured in Architectural Digest online. The year’s highlights include the Lawson-Fenning x CB2 collaboration, celebrations for Fritz Hansen’s 150th anniversary, the launch of Lalique’s collaboration with artist James Turrell and Steinway & Sons’ limited-edition Gran Nichetto, created in collaboration with award-winning multidisciplinary designer Luca Nichetto. The Consultancy PR is an active member of Design Stands Together, a collective of PR agencies devoted to cultivating equity, representation and anti-racism in the industry.
