When Lava Meets Water,

Something Magical Happens.

Obsidian is the dark natural glass that forms when molten lava meets water and is rapidly cooled. This is what strategic public relations can do for your company — it tempers fires and gives you a solid, impenetrable foundation in an ever-fluid business environment. Known as The Great Stabilizer, Obsidian the mineral is widely regarded for its mystical power of insight. And so is Obsidian the firm. Based in Memphis, Tennessee, Obsidian is known as the go-to firm for companies and not-for-profit organizations alike.

The Wizard Behind The Curtain

For far too long, public relations has been the invisible and mysterious cousin to advertising and marketing. But, it’s really easy when you think about it. When an organization connects to the people it cares about, that’s PR. When your story is told (in whatever lovely and purposeful fashion), that’s PR. Pure and simple.

    Summer Intern Spotlight: 

    University of Memphis senior Jenna Mehmed is one of Obsidian’s two outstanding Level 1 interns for the summer. She will fill the shoes of her sorority sister, Kelly Cook, who interned at Obsidian this past spring. Both PR majors, Jenna says Kelly just raved about how wonderful her internship was and what a great environment it was to learn and hone in her PR skills. So, Jenna applied, and after a phone interview with Obsidian’s culture ambassador, Lauren Hannaford, she knew it was the place she wanted to be for the summer! (And, we knew it, too!)

    Oh, yes we did!

    Beginning in 2011, Obsidian worked with Metropolitan Bank to garner media coverage in each of its markets: Memphis, Tennessee; Jackson, Mississippi; and later, Nashville, Tennessee. We landed a full-page profile in the Memphis Business Journal in the first month of the relationship and a full-page profile in the Nashville Business Journal soon after the bank entered that market. The bank was also covered in numerous other stories in The Commercial Appeal, Memphis Daily News, Nashville Ledger and Tennessee Banker.
