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.

  • Seeing is Believing
    Oh, yes we did!

    Amazing events require stellar teams, and our HOPE team worked incredibly hard to pull off the organization’s Rural Policy Conference in the Mississippi Delta! This annual conference challenges the greatest minds in our region to consider the economic nuances that rural communities, including those in our own backyard, face. Whitney and Jenna supported the planning team and attended the conference as logistics support. The event was deemed an enormous success!

    Public relations is like a fine wine

    Let’s talk wine for a bit. I’m not an avid wine drinker, but I appreciate a nice glass of red wine from time to time. As I was thinking about a lovely glass of Malbec I had, I wandered down a rabbit hole that I couldn’t help but share with […]
