How Savannah Britt Is Redefining PR And Contributing Towards African Representation Worldwide
Mar 10, 2022
In light of Black History Month, we are elated to be showcasing Savannah Britt, a truly important thought leader within the black community, as well as the world of PR, fashion, and much more. A public relations guru who has been praised for her important work by Forbes, as well as spoken in places such as Harvard University and ASALH’s (The Founders of Black History Month) Annual Meeting & Conference, Savannah Britt’s story is more than impressive.
As she has revealed in multiple interviews, Savannah Britt always knew that she wanted to work in PR, as she can’t get enough of being out and about, meeting new people, working with exciting artists and brands, and – ultimately – pushing the culture forward. At just age twelve, she founded her own publication, Girlpez Fashion Magazine, focusing on fashion, beauty, and self-empowerment for teen girls, a courageous and bold move that would shoot her to international fame. She was quickly dubbed the Youngest Magazine Publisher in the World, and earned well-deserved acclaim from Teen Vogue’s then editor-in-chief Amy Astley.
Savannah Britt currently runs The Brittprint, an international communications agency that focuses on public relations, marketing, and creative strategy. Since its inception, The Brittprint has worked on campaigns for superstar clients such as Burna Boy, DJ Khaled, Gucci Mane, Ryan Leslie, 2 Chainz, Lil Yachty, Smoke DZA, Alessia Cara, Victoria Kimani, 24hrs, Desean Jackson, Madeintyo, Pappy Kojo, Pelle Pelle and many more.
As Savannah Britt’s reputation only grew, she decided to move to Lagos, Nigeria alongside her team, in order to establish The Brittprint’s footprints and influence in Africa, as well as bridge the gap between the western entertainment industry and Nollywood, which is the second-largest film industry in the world, sitting between Bollywood and Hollywood. During her residence in Nigeria, Britt worked on successful activations for the likes of Beats By Dre, Afrochella, True Religion, and many more.
Currently based in New Jersey, Savannah Britt is making sure to keep herself active when she’s not working on PR campaigns for tomorrow’s biggest artists and brands. She is discovering and nurturing talent as an A&R, while also teaming up with organizations such as Freedom March NYC and Humanize My Hoodie to donate to women’s shelters. As if all this wasn’t enough, Savannah Britt even made her debut in music back in 2020, teaming up with R. City, T.U.C. and Victoria Kimani to share “Diego,” an infectious single that brings together summery melodies and groovy percussion, while aiming to expose the western world to authentic sounds from Africa, and represent music from the continent on an international scale.
