You know the sound that a 1920s automobile makes to get someone’s attention?
That’s Aruga. We turn heads.
Public Relations & Crisis Communications
Igniting the spark between audience and brand is what we do. Creative PR that turns heads.
Whether you have reams of words that need ‘smithing or want a fully penned piece with a professional polish, we can help.
Unlike most influencers, our strategy forgoes the façade and fluff in favour of flair and finesse to achieve real business ROI.
Piecing together a successful integrated marketing and communications strategy can be a daunting puzzle, so make it our problem.
Events & Activations
We don’t just start the party, we conceptualise it, plan it, promote it, manage it and generate the FOMO to accompany it.
Our skilled media professionals work with clients to maximise media opportunities by training key spokespeople to shine on camera, on-air and on-the-record.
