Deja Knight
Founder + President

Deja has worked in the communications field for eight yearsβ€”as a reporter for five years and in public relations for three. Her work as a broadcast journalist was featured on CBS, CNN, FOX, and The Weather Channel and was nominated for two Emmys.

Now, based in Charleston, Deja makes the world of Public Relations her oyster.

She believes in the power of PR, and says, β€œUnlike advertorial campaigns, Public Relations builds more credibility by highlighting the uniqueness of your brand through journalists and influencers. The consumer and reader are more likely to trust messages coming from an objective source than from paid advertising.” Deja strengthens brands to cultivate interest and sales. She works mainly in the realms of lifestyle and hospitality, but peppers in nonprofit work and aspires to run political campaigns.

In addition to elevating your brand, Deja is also passionate about children. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for Be A Mentor, an organization very dear to her heart. A native of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, Deja is a huge University of Alabama athletics fan. She loves spending time with her dog, learning the game of golf, and living in the Lowcountry.


William G Hardison III
Account Manager

Will has worked in marketing, media relations, and public relations for 2 years, and has served as a guest blogger for Charleston Grit. His work has been featured in online media and publications such as Garden & Gun, Mashable, & FOX.

Through audience analysis, strategic media campaigns, and his thorough understanding of human relationships, he crafts a unique, tailored identity and presence for his clients. Will enjoys working with lifestyle & hospitality brands, and would love to add the fashion industry to his repertoire.

When he is not in the office drafting press releases, editing photos, and pitching journalists, he can be found on the beach reading, enjoying too many cups of coffee at his favorite cafe, or running in downtown Charleston. Since graduating from the College of Charleston, he has fallen in love with the Holy City even more.
