MEET THE TEAM

WHO WE ARE

Liberty842 was founded in 2009
by sisters Tayler and Daisy Cresswell

Liberty 8442 was our grandmother’s first telephone number. Those were the days when an army of women ran our telephone exchanges, listening and connecting callers. In the early days, they knew everyone by name.

Today, we develop and manage conversations in real time. We create digital strategies, research briefings, content and buzz around brands as well as TV and radio programmes. We introduce celebrities to social media and help them engage with and grow their fan bases. We talk to fans and consumers, one-to-one, and we understand what makes them tick. Our working hours are dictated by our audiences, not the office 9-5. It’s a labour of love.
