PLMR hires #Milifandom Creator Abby Tomlinson

Award-winning communications agency, PLMR, is excited to announce that Abby Tomlinson has joined their digital communications team. Abby is most well-known for creating the #Milifandom, a tongue-in-cheek online campaign to support the then Labour Leader Ed Miliband during the 2015 General Election.

The movement received widespread national media coverage and even earned her a place in The Observer’s ‘Faces of 2015’.  Abby has gone on to write for The Guardian, The Telegraph, New Statesman, and CNN.

Abby joins PLMR after working on communications for the youth wing of the People’s Vote Campaign and organizing volunteers for HOPE Not Hate during the 2019 General Election.  Abby now has over 45,000 followers on Twitter and has appeared on political discussion shows such as Newsnight and Victoria Derbyshire, as well as being part of Buzzfeed and Sky News’ joint election night coverage.

Abby joins PLMR as a Senior Digital Executive, where she will be responsible for the delivery of a wide range of digital campaigns for clients, whilst also contributing to PLMR’s marketing activity.  PLMR are also hiring for a motion graphics specialist, as they continue to expand their digital offering.

Elin de Zoete, Managing Director at PLMR, said:

“Our award-winning digital practice is growing fast as clients understand the importance of incorporating digital at the heart of any communications strategy.  We are delighted that Abby has joined us and look forward to her bringing her extensive digital campaigning experience to the team.”

Senior Digital Executive at PLMR, Abby Tomlinson, said:

“I’m incredibly excited to be joining PLMR at the start of what is bound to be another great year for the agency. I look forward to using the skills and experience I’ve gained over the last few years to work with a diverse range of clients and ensure PLMR continues to innovate and grow in the industry.”
