Dragon eyes looking right

About Us

Here Be Dragons is a multi-award winning Creative Communications and PR Agency. 

Whilst focussed on the discipline of PR, we believe in a modern definition of the term, with a sharp focus on our creative output that drives conversation, fame and WOM across earned media, influencer and social. 

We create varied, exciting, dynamic work within our sector. Recognised with 8 awards in the last 12 months and doubling our client base, the agency is in a high-velocity rate of growth and our creative dept is looking to mirror that growth and capitalise on the successes we’ve had in the past 12 months. 

We’re highly collaborative and operate a non-hierarchical structure - everyone has a voice in the room, opinions are welcome, culture is paramount.

We’re a tight-knit unit who enjoy each other’s company. That means days out are interesting and are a democratic experience - everyone throws ideas in the ring from exhibitions to drinks to nights out.

Culture-wise, there are four key values of Here Be Dragons, which we ask all our staff, clients and partners to adhere to:

  • Curious - always plugged into culture. Always listening. Always aware.
  • Courageous - don’t do the done thing, ever. Be brave. 
  • Compassionate - inclusive, kind, thoughtful, generous, empathetic. 
  • Good vibes only - no dramas, no meanness, no egos.
