Journalists Seeking Stories

We have a wealth of stories to share and we invite journalists and editors to get in touch via mail@clairecurtice.co.uk

Photographers

Our clients’ diverse range of projects demand different approaches to photography. We are keen to meet with photographers who have experience recording spaces in use, particularly schools, civic spaces and public realm.

About

Founded in 2006 we are committed to celebrating the social value of high-quality contextual architecture, particularly in cities. Our clients share a desire to make the world a better place through design with lasting value. Their projects are consistently worthy of ongoing media interest because they present a strong social agenda, and enduring design.

Our approach to publicity through project led campaigns is thoughtfully personalised. We achieve optimum results when clients fully trust our working methodology. Equally they understand that campaigns are delivered at pace as part of a wider strategy which evolves over time.

Open to new ideas, sharing enthusiasm, intelligence and integrity, our clients stay with us for years

We spark dialogues between our clients, journalists, and industry experts

Testimonials

Luke Tozer, Pitman Tozer Architects

They are discerning and ‘plugged in’ to the architectural scene in a way that shows they understand and value architecture as well as architectural publicity. It is a testament to their professionalism and dedication that they are able to keep apace with the changing nature of architectural publications in traditional and new media.

Robin Lee, Robin Lee Architecture

Claire Curtice Publicists managed the publicity around the renaming of my practice and the launch of one of our major projects. Claire and her committed team were highly efficient and well organised, coordinating the coverage of our projects and practice, in Asia, Europe and the United States in addition to the UK and Europe. Claire and her team are attentive and meticulous in their attention to detail with a real desire to understand and communicate the specific qualities of each of her clients. Communication of a clear message is invaluable within a busy, competitive marketplace and Claire Curtice Publicists applied considerable expertise in helping to achieve this.

Roger Hawkins, Hawkins\Brown

Claire Curtice Publicists provided a fantastic PR and press liaison service for HawkinsBrown for 10 years from 2004-2014. During this time our profile increased substantially. Claire and Rumina maintained a good knowledge of HawkinsBrown projects and our work was presented to the press succinctly and accurately. They helped us to select opportunities and steer press activity not only in the UK but throughout Europe and overseas.

Tony Fretton, Tony Fretton Architects

Claire Curtice Publicists is probably the most talented young British publicist of architects. The practice is small and responsive, staffed by bright minds, who are always there for their clients. They are discreet, with great social skills and a network of respected journals and writers. Their range is excellent, from managing our presence in the Venice Biennale in 2008 and 2010 to interfacing with publishers of monographs. Practices lucky enough to be represented by them find that their public profile grows very quickly.

Roger Zogolovitch, Solidspace

Working with Claire Curtice Publicists is a rare pleasure. She and her team bring an enthusiasm and intelligence to the complex worlds of public relations. I like the straightforward title of ‘publicist’ and find it refreshing to work with a team that shares our passion with our work and helps us so well to communicate to a wider public and press. It has been a most rewarding experience over the past four years.

Monica von Schmalensee, White Arkitekter

Through her wide industry network and genuine care for our brand, Claire has been a safe, smart and credible communications partner. With a steady hand, she has guided us in the right direction, both in terms of strategically connecting us with the right people and generating high-impact press coverage.

Hugh Broughton, Hugh Broughton Architects

"Claire Curtice Publicists has become an integral part of our business over the last six years and has significantly raised the profile of our practice with great creativity and energy. They have helped us to win numerous international awards and secured unparalleled coverage of our designs for Halley VI Antarctic Research Station across the globe in every medium from TV to radio from international publications to the technical press. Alongside work with the press, they have also helped to organise Hugh's lecture tours in the USA and talks in the UK which have added real gravitas to our credentials. As our company has grown this has been a crucial relationship in the ongoing success of our practice.”

Our small team is close-knit and forward thinking
