In some ways, January 2021 has been no different than any other January in technology.

At the start of the new year, we read about new technologies and innovations that will shape the year ahead, which often come from the world’s investors and technologists. 

In other ways, the gains in innovation seen as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic have vastly accelerated the “digitization” and/or “glocalization” of the world’s economies, and has changed many aspects of what we call “work” in a traditional sense, resulting in a list of trends and technology predictions for 2021 that few would have predicted six months ago. 

Halloween is, hands down, the best holiday of the year (feel free to argue with me – I’m confident I will convince you that you were horribly mistaken).

This year, our client Mirriad, whose AI-based technology seamlessly inserts brands into entertainment content, decided to use their technology to celebrate the holiday and, at the same time, showcase how it can be used to enhance any content – no matter how long it’s been dead and buried.
Mirriad resurrected a true horror classic – George Romero’s The Night of the Living Dead – as well as some brands that may (or may not) have left us too soon.

The Clarity team is delighted to announce that we have won PR Week’s UK Specialist of the Year award for our tech expertise. 

Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the team has worked tirelessly to support our clients as they adapt to the “new normal” as well as continuing to pitch for and win exciting new additions to our tech portfolio. 

Clarity CEO & Founder, Sami McCabe, said “This award is richly-deserved recognition for the herculean efforts of our outstanding UK team, the exceptional work we’ve delivered for our awesome clients, and for Rachel’s fearless leadership of the London office.

I’m thrilled to announce that this week, Clarity acquired Amsterdam-based Yellow Communications. 

Yellow is the leading independent technology communications agency in Benelux, working with clients including Citrix, ENGIE, Roche Diabetes Care and Boomi. 

I can’t wait to start working with Yellow’s inspirational founder Karin van Geelen and her exceptionally talented team, to grow Clarity’s presence in what is an increasingly important market. 

This is a huge milestone for Clarity and a strategically crucial step in our growth journey. The acquisition of Yellow is the first of many planned initiatives to grow Clarity across Europe.

We’re excited to announce that Clarity PR has been named a Silver Winner in the 2020 International (Stevie’s) Business Awards for Company of the Year – Advertising, Marketing, & Public Relations! The award closes out an exciting week for Clarity as we recently announced several senior leadership additions and promotions on our North American team, and follows an exciting year of continued growth for the agency! 

Since we were founded in 2013, we’ve strived to live out our agency values of fearless, global and positive communications – continuously raising the bar on our client programs and services, working with the rebels and titans that are changing the world through technology. 

Earlier this week, we officially welcomed Jon Meakin and Kara Silverman to the Clarity family! Jon comes on board as President, North America and Kara joins us as Managing Director, NYC. We’re excited to welcome such experienced industry talent to our team! 

Jon joins in the newly created role of President, North America, overseeing our teams across the US. Previously serving as Global Head of Strategic Services and SF Managing Director at Grayling, Jon will guide our North American offices through PR strategy and execution for domestic and international clients.
