We are Riot Communications
We unleash the power of storytelling to create consumers


We are a PR agency specialising in culture and entertainment. We believe in the positive impact of stories which we use to design and execute intelligent, creative communications strategies in order to:

Create strong, emotional connections with audiences so they choose you

Build your reputation making you impossible to ignore

Deliver real world outcomes that positively impact your bottom line


At Riot Communications our work is guided by the four principles of our Riot Ethos to deliver outstanding work to our clients:


We are clear, precise and relentlessly curious: we ask the right questions in order to offer the right expertise. We see the bigger picture but never miss the tiny details.


We have integrity: we only represent what we believe in. We are fun to work with but deadly serious about what we do.


We are a strategic partner to our clients, working as an extension of their team towards a common goal.


We do what will work, not necessarily what has happened before.


Just a few examples of our creative campaign work

We owe much of the worldwide success of Sapiens and Homo Deus to the brilliant PR campaign Riot orchestrated. We have worked with PR teams in more than 50 countries, and Riot sets the gold standard. They are not just extremely professional, but also very friendly and warm. It has been a pleasure.

We are incredibly happy about our decision to work with Riot. Their professional and knowledgeable, yet personal approach to broadening the awareness of the Moomins in the UK has met all our expectations and more. Their positive attitude makes the most challenging of tasks seem like a lark. They are quick and fun too!

I have nothing but praise and admiration for the way Riot Communications handled the launch of my appointment as Waterstones Children’s Laureate. The media coverage was excellent and with their unfailing good humour and support behind me, I felt I hit the ground running.

Riot Communications has made a first class job of promoting The Desmond Elliott Prize and we are delighted with their service.

Dallas Manderson, Chair of Trustees, The Desmond Elliott Prize

Riot delivered in spades providing the perfect combination of creative thinking with hands-on support.  They are super smart and strategic; unafraid to constructively challenge when needed; always willing to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in and a complete delight to work with.

Rebecca Sinclair, Communications Director, Penguin Random House UK

Riot Communications blow other PR companies out of the water. They are the first PR team I’ve ever worked with who over-deliver on their original promise.
