Retrospective: ICO Media in 2011

Rear-view mirror of Zion mountains

Here is Part Two of our retrospective for 2011 and what we have been doing for the past year.

 

If you have been following our activities, you may be aware that we started up a media relationship management service (also called ‘public relations’/PR) called ICO Media in 2010. We recently added a new section to our website to outline our approach to media relations for online games.

So… ICO Media in 2011 was very interesting for us. We took on more PR clients, and the team had a greater variety of tasks to juggle than in the previous year. We experimented with tools to improve efficiency, learned a lot about what works for us, and streamlined our processes quite a bit.

LFG? Expanding the Media Relations team

We are just back from GDC and we had a very good time there. We caught up with friends, clients and prospective clients and it has been a busy week for sure.

One of the direct consequence from GDC is that we are going to be busy in the foreseeable future and possibly a bit *too* busy (if such a thing could be possible). And it looks like it will be time now to expand the team again and we are now opening a new position in our Brighton office and you can find the full job description here:
