TDUB technology mobility digital lifestyle

TDUB: PR and social media from Germany’s media capital Hamburg.

TDUB Kommunikationsberatung is a communications consultancy, specialized in PR and social media, located in the aspiring new HafenCity in Hamburg’s harbour area, right within walking distance of some of the biggest German publishing houses like Spiegel Verlag and Gruner & Jahr. As an intermediary between companies and their customers, our agency develops successful communications activities – gripping, direct and of course on a strategic basis.

We have a dedicated focus on clients from technology, mobility and digital lifestyle. We love consumer electronics and we love complex technology just as well.

TDUB covers media relations – both on- and offline – as well as modern influencer relations. Based on attractive content, we tell appealing stories throughout all relevant channels and thus create attention and coverage for our clients. In short, we support you in PR and in digital communication. In product PR and corporate PR. Issue management. Crisis communication. B2C and B2B. And we are using all the modern tools of communication – for example what we call „big data PR“.

Maybe you have already heard of our „wild label“ Tsching, Derassa & Bum, where we take care of young, creative companies and start ups, supporting them in making noise for getting public attention. This is our playground.

By the way: In German, Tsching, Derassa & Bum is onomatopoetic for the flashy sound of a marching band entering the manege.

International PR

TDUB is a proud member of the „International Public Relations Network“ (IPRN). Due to our integration in one of the world’s largest and well-established independent agency networks, we often help companies from abroad to establish their brand on the German market. Our Managing Director Tilo Timmermann has been elected to be member of the Executive Council of the IPRN. Our latest initiative was forming a „Global Market Sector Leaders Group Technology“ („Tech Group“) of dedicated tech PR agencies within the IPRN all around the globe. We can offer a proven network of owner led partner tech agencies on four continents.

TDUB knows the special needs and tasks when expanding a business on a different market, and we certainly know how to deal with special German attitudes.


Our team consists of three managing directors and a steadily growing number of consultants with extensive experience in and passion for tech, gadgets and digital. Within our office we have some lodgers – most of them advertising- and internet-professionals.
