Website Citizen Relations

We are Citizen Relations. We are an earned-first creative agency, which means we come up with big ideas that actually earn people’s attention. And that starts with not just talking to audiences, but by doing something they connect with. Seems simple, but it’s harder than it looks.

Our POV is simple. Consumers of all kinds have evolved. No longer can you just shove your message down their throat. You have to find common ground between people and your company and what you stand for. When you do it right, you earn their attention and actions and a changed perspective, behaviour or attitude. And this approach has worked, allowing us to get results for some of the biggest brands in the world – and win some awards along the way.
