About us

Silverthorn is a PR, social media and content marketing agency founded by Laura Crimmons. Prior to launching Silverthorn Laura was Communications Director at Search agency Branded3 where she started the award-winning PR team in 2012. She then went on to oversee the creative side of the agency, managing the PR, Social, Content and Design teams.

In 2018 Laura decided it was time to take the leap and create her own agency with a simple ethos; we take our clients’ objectives and create things that people love so much they can’t help but talk about them.

Laura won PR Moment’s Young Professional of the Year 2017, was named in The Drum’s 2018 and 2017 50 Women in Digital Under 30 and was shortlisted for the CIPR’s Outstanding Young Communicator 2017.

Since 2013 Laura has been delivering PR training at BrightonSEO and speaking at events around the world, including; INBOUND 2017, SMX München, Turing Fest, Learn Inbound UnGagged Vegas and Yoastcon.
