WHO ARE WE

WE CARE

We explore and understand the challenges you face, things you want to achieve and how we can help you. Your goals is what matters and we’ll make every effort for you to find the best way to achieve them.

WE ARE PARTNERS

Customers are our partners and we work as one team. We are committed to high ethical and professional standards as much as we are to human values.

WE ARE RESULT-DRIVEN

Not at any cost, but we still strive to win – it’s an inspiration that leads us to taking on any activity. We distinguish short-term effects from long-term goals and are available any time you need us to be.

WHAT DOES 1323 MEAN

Our agency is named after a date. In 1323, in his letters to Pope John XXII and to the free cities of Europe grand duke Gediminas referred to Vilnius as the capital of Lithuania for the first time. We think it was one of Lithuania’s first successful international communication campaigns which lead the Grand Duchy of Lithuania towards Europe, although the public relations concept was unknown at the time.

We are a Vilnius-based communication agency. Strategic advice, reputation management and crisis communication are our strongest points. We are an experienced team with a history of communication projects for over 70 Lithuanian and international businesses and organisations.

Project Manager

I've studied journalism at Vilnius University, so naturally, my professional career began in this field. I worked as a journalist for five years. During this time my primary focus was on business, investment, and innovations. I had the privilege to interview both experienced businesspeople and talented startups, politicians, diplomats, scientists, reported from conferences in Lithuania and abroad. For the last two and a half years, I've been working in public relations. This field gave me an opportunity to employ the writing skills that I developed in journalism and my knowledge about business while also learning new skills.

Before joining “Agency 1323”, I had been working as a project manager in education and popularisation of design where my mission was to present what is perceived as the realm of creativity from a different angle and to promote Lithuanian authors. I tried my hand at journalism and pursued freelance writing for some time. I hold a MA in Comparative Politics. I marvel at dedication and curiosity which I believe make the world go around and people not boring, my current interests being society and technology.

Accounts Assistant

For me communication is like a propulsion. No matter where You turn Your head to - interaction, connections, information. I'm absolutely sure, that everything starts from internal communication and every other action depends on it. Theatre, music and literature are my favourite types of communication that allows me to understand what’s happening inside of me and gives me an opportunity to experience something new. Communication with people opens up many other opportunities. It brings experiences that are useful in order to move forward. Bachelor studies of creative communications in Vilnius University, volunteering at National Drama Theatre, more than five years spent working with NGO's and internship at PR agency gave and improved organizational, creative and writing skills. What is more, I'm a vocalist at a music band. All of that is communication - with myself, with clients, with audience. And that is exactly what makes me move forward.

I like innovations and challenges. Among my interests I can mention also theatre, history and culture of other countries. My passion for history has largely determined a direction of studies – I‘m a history student at Vilnius university. I also volunteer at world's largest youth-run organization AIESEC, where I’m responsible for outgoing exchanges. By volunteering in this organization, I have a chance to customize my communication and marketing knowledge.
