Rebellious.

Rebellious PR is a boutique PR agency headquartered in Portland, OR with offices now in Los Angeles. We have deep roots in the consumer tech space, but like to consider ourselves a lifestyle PR brand. We believe that traditional PR sucks, but we know the rules well so we can break them effectively.

Are you rebellious?

About Us

Rebellious PR & Consulting was started in early 2016 by industry vet Evie Smith. After almost a decade working for agencies on the west coast, she decided the tech/startup PR and agency culture was broken and outdated. Flipping the metaphorical table on her way out, Evie felt confident she could do it better. 

Everything from agency structure to account management has been dissected and turned on its head to create a PR agency that actually works. Our main goal is to produce the best work possible by careful client selection and management. Rebellious doesn’t say yes to everyone and that’s by design.

We’re looking for fellow collaborators, freethinkers, and well… rebels. We are Rebellious because our clients are disruptive to their industries. We love to work with defiant founders who make their own lanes to create revolutionary work.  We love working with women-founded, POC-founded, and LGBTQ+ founded companies. Let’s be Rebellious, together.

Work

Tap Systems

Tap Systems approached Rebellious PR a couple months prior to their long awaited product finally shipping. Rebellious was tasked with casting a wide net to get the most traction possible. Tap had previously worked with other PR firms, so Rebellious had to make sure to keep past relationships in tact while creating news ones. Rebellious targeted the tech press and video bloggers.

For the the initial shipping announcement Rebellious worked with The Verge, Slashgear, Digital Trends, Mashable and more to get the word out. Over the next few months reviews ran on CNET, Techcrunch and Macworld as well as on popular YouTube channels like Linus Tech Tips.

Recently Tap was featured in the Wall Street Journal (twice!)

Stern Pinball

Rebellious’ founder, Evie has an almost decade long relationship with Stern Pinball. When Stern joined Rebellious growing client roster in 2015, Rebellious immediately lined up a four video exclusive with the AV Club. In addition to getting Stern great press like the Rolling Stone, IGN and Variety for their launches, Rebellious joins Stern onsite a few times a year for tradshoes like Comic-Con International and CES.

For trade shows Rebellious works closely with Stern on behind the scenes details as well as coordinating onsite press meetings and coverage. People have been talking about the resurgence of pinball for years now, Rebellious ensures those conversations keep happening.

Moonstruck

Moonstruck is a comic series created by Lumberjanes original writer, Grace Ellis and published by Image Comics. Grace and her team approached Rebellious to get the word out for their new series Moonstruck, a super cute, magical, queer comic. Rebellious worked to identify the best writers for this series at all the top publications.

Coverage for the first issue included Entertainment Weekly, Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls, Autostraddle and The Mary Sue. In the months that followed Rebellious also secured reviews for the series in Teen Vogue and The AV Club.

For the the initial shipping announcement Rebellious worked with The Verge, Slashgear, Digital Trends, Mashable and more to get the word out. Over the next few months reviews ran on CNET, Techcrunch and Macworld as well as on popular YouTube channels like Linus Tech Tips.
