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.

    Workin’ Mama!

    Longtime Obsidianite Lauren Hannaford recently earned a new title – mother. She joins the ranks of the rest of the Obsidian Mamas, which now includes five team members and accounts for 14 children! When asked how having a baby has changed her life, Lauren says she gets up earlier and plans even more in advance than she did before. Spoken like a true PR professional! It’s all about remaining organized, planning well and being efficient with her time. We dug in a little deeper with her in our Q&A this month.

  • Seeing is Believing
    Oh, yes we did!

    After successfully promoting the grand opening of PizzaRev’s Jackson, Tennessee, location (which set a national pre-opening attendance record), Obsidian was trusted with the brand’s launch in the Memphis market. Our efforts resulted in news coverage in The Commercial Appeal, Memphis Business Journal, High Ground News and Memphis Flyer, as well as on WMC Action News 5 and by Choose901. Additionally, we garnered more than 120 attendees at the VIP pre-opening event and distributed 1,000 pre-opening vouchers, of which 58 percent were redeemed.
