About Twist


Twist is a creative PR and marketing agency based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. We specialise in PR, social media, content and search, for brands who want to tell the world their story.

Our mission is to #CreateConversations for brands.

We start by getting under the skin of your brand, to understand your core values, brand positioning and the key points that make your audiences tick. 

Life would be boring if we all followed the same path, so we tend to shake things up a bit, by adding a good dose of creative thinking to a marketing campaign. We strive to deliver engaging content that not only catches the attention of your audiences, but gives reasons for the press to publish your story.

By challenging the norm, our approach aims to deliver a positive impact on your bottom line, to give audiences reasons to talk about your brand and helps to support the strengthening of your brand as a leader within your market


There are too many sensible brands out there doing sensible things that nobody ever notices. It’s in our DNA to think differently, to challenge the norm and engineer better results for our clients.
