Hot off the press in October!

We can’t quite explain the excitement that each of us feels when we land a piece of awesome coverage – whether it’s in a trade mag, a traditional broadsheet or on a cool digital site. The thrill is real, which is why securing our clients a spot in their desired publication is something that we will always pride ourselves on.

Scriba HQ was a hive of activity in October — as we welcomed yet another new recruit in the form of digital account executive, Katie Hopkins, made exciting 2021 plans for our assorted clients and, stayed determinedly positive while packing our bags in preparation for a month of remote working and ‘lockdown 2.0’.

So, to celebrate another successful Scriba month, here’s a collection of clippings that the crew is particularly proud of.
