“Different offers an agile PR model that’s suited to today’s changing media landscape and client needs.
“By focusing on what a brand and its team can do differently, the Sydney-based agency promises to deliver world-class creative work with measurement linked to business outcomes.

“Already the response has been really strong.”
Different launches with two clients, a team of PR specialists, as well as planning, creative and content resources from day one.
Different has won the Australian and New Zealand PR account for Acast, the world’s largest podcast company.
