Anna Vitorino - MediaVision Digital PR Exec

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I was born in London (Hackney) but most of my family are from Portugal, split between the surf town of Nazare and a city in northern Portugal named Viseu. I have a joint degree in Journalism & News Media and Photography which I studied at the University of Roehampton in London. In my spare time I like to work on my photography, go to music festivals and events and binge on Pinterest. LOVE music, travel, fashion and interior design.

What previous experience do you have in the digital industry?

I have 3 years of experience of working in luxury fashion and lifestyle PR, with client accounts spanning from high street to high end luxury including menswear, womenswear and jewellery. I started working within an in-house environment but then came over to agency-side about 2 years ago. I’d say planning and executing the Amy Winehouse Foundation Ball was one of my biggest and proudest achievements until this day. I was able to get real valuable insights into event planning, celebrity endorsement and celebrity press. I have been looking to make the move to Digital PR for some time now and with the perfect mix of clients/brands they work with, MediaVision was the obvious choice!

Why do you enjoy working in digital?

What’s not to love? I love the fact that results are visible and palpable, especially when considering client satisfaction. I also find that you get to be a lot more creative within the digital realm, and having a background in photography studies, I love any task or project (no matter how small or menial) that allows me to use those skills.
