about Hannes

Hannes was founded by Keredy Andrews in 2015, following 15 years of experience in press offices, events management, and an integrated PR, SEO and social media agency.

You may know it as a looped square, but the St Hannes Cross – pronounced Han-nes, not hans or hayns – is the perfect graphic representation of how a business’ marketing and PR activity should work. Distinct channels shaped cohesively.

We’d love to get to know you and your business’ story and then help you tell it through an integrated approach.

We offer a PR and marketing agency experience but at freelancers prices – Keredy works solo as well as within an Avengers Assemble style set-up. Keredy is proud to wear her ‘Jack of All Trades’ badge and loves nothing to cross-pollinate, wear different hats and stick her fingers in all the pies (she is northern).

However, when required, she sends the call out to other experienced freelancers who are on hand to help deliver one off projects and ongoing contracts – not actually contracts to avenge anyone, to be clear.
