POSTCARD COMMUNICATIONS

We are a boutique pr firm working with creative companies, individuals and organizations. Our inspiration is the postcard, that little missive, sent from a faraway place, and still requiring decent penmanship and a thoughtful sentence or two, rather than a WiFi connection. As with postcards, we believe communication in pr should be personal, creative, evocative and succinct.
We do think small is good, and keep our client roster limited to ensure a customized approach to each campaign and close attention to every detail. As liaisons between our clients and the media, we take time to educate ourselves about both realms so we may serve as proper and efficient sources of information, ideas and support.

THE LIQUID CHEF

Balance and harmony are the essential qualities driving the artful
execution of an elegant cocktail.

The cocktail should be served with food or on any occasion that is
uniquely suited to it. Fresh, quality ingredients, the complexity of their
flavors, evolve with the collaborative talents of Mixologist and Chef. The
result is a perfect pairing of food and drink.

Junior Merino identifies five elements contributing to an enjoyable and
memorable cocktail. First-the visual, the beauty of the creation.
Second-the scent of the combined ingredients. Third-taste; the harmonious
interplay of all parts. Fourth-balance; the creation of something greater
than the sum of the parts. Fifth-the human element; the dedication, 
passion, the knowledge and respect-without these none of the above would
be possible.

Merino and The Liquid Team, Merino’s hand-picked, highly trained team of
 individuals.
