More growth for PR firm Distinctive Communications with appointment of new content writer

March 23, 2023

Distinctive Communications, the Bristol-based full-service public relations consultancy aimed at place-makers, purposeful businesses and public bodies, has hired content writer Jasmine Gordon as it approaches the end of its first full year of trading.

The agency was launched last May by Ben Lowndes, the former South West managing director of national PR firm Social, taking all five staff members of Social’s Bristol team with him. 

Since then it has supported clients such as Bath & North East Somerset Council with graphic design, housebuilder Mactaggart & Mickel Group with PR, and developer Reef Group, which is partnering with Gloucester City Council to bring forward a £107m regeneration project in the city.

It has also picked up new clients, including Henley Business School, management and technical consultancy ARK and Mid Devon District council.

Jasmine, pictured, joins with seven years’ comms and marketing experience, having worked on communication campaigns in the publishing and charity sectors.

This included publisher HarperCollins, where she contributed to the success of various bestselling non-fiction titles, working with authors including Marcus Wareing, Cathy Glass and Gill Sims.

In her most recent role at Bristol-based Soil Association, her content reached community organisers, teachers and policy makers.

At Distinctive she is providing support across all clients, working primarily on content creation, including email, social media, web and print media, as well as client account management.

She is also delivering content for clients including The Forum and industry body Nuclear South West. 

Ben Lowndes said: “When I set Distinctive up last year it was important to me to lead a committed, professional team that wanted to make a difference to our clients and the communities in which they are based.

“We’ve come a long way in a short time and approach the end of our first year with confidence about the future.

“It’s great to have Jasmine on board, supporting the team’s mission to provide clear, engaging content that cuts through the noise, for our clients and ourselves.”

Jasmine added: “I’m thrilled to be part of such a talented and positive team – focusing on clarity of communications and supporting clients to deliver projects that will make a difference to people, place and the environment.

“I’m enjoying the role, meeting some bright and interesting clients, and I look forward to continuing our work.”
