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a decade working for agencies on the west coast, she decided the tech/startup PR and agency culture was broken and outdated.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. Enter Rebellious PR & Consulting.
Rebellious’ 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. Everything from agency structure to account management has been dissected and turned on its head to create a PR agency that actually works.

Evie’s favorite kind of clients to work on are brands in the consumer lifestyle space and various kinds of geek stuff.

“ROCK STAR… just to put it simply. Evie’s ability to dive into a project – or even an industry – and understand the intricacies of the strategy while building a communication plan and handling zillions of moving or shifting pieces keeps her standing out as an achiever. We have had several different types of interactions, from press tours to small events to massive messes like SXSW, and she navigates flawlessly. One of my favorite times was watching her glide through a movie launch event at SXSW, grabbing influencers as she went and leaving with a fully developed plan on who and how to access afterwards. Full recommendation!” — Alec Marshall, Managing Partner & Creative Director at Silicon Drive
“Evie is one of my favorite PR people. She knows her stuff and gets things done. She doesn’t bother you with pitches that aren’t relevant to your beat, and has a knack for setting up perfect matches.” — Janko Roettgers, Senior Silicon Valley Correspondent at Variety
“I’ve been working with Evie off and on for several years now. She consistently sends me good pitches that are smart, clear, and don’t waste time. When I see her name in my inbox, I click Open.” — Brent Rose, Writer for Wired, Gizmodo, Outside Magazine, Men’s Journal, and more
“Evie managed the PR efforts for Poynt when we were in the initial growth-phase. Her amazing personality, understanding of our product, the mobile apps landscape and connections to media and influencers made her an indispensable member of our team. She was a true partner, moving well beyond the realm of service provider. I recommend her without hesitation and look forward to the day we work together again!” — Margaret Glover-Campbell, Director of Programs at MindFuel.ca
