Our Talents

Public Relations

You’re more amazing than you know, and we can prove it! The key is sharing your story and growing relationships with your constituents. We can develop and implement your strategic public relations extending beyond traditional media relations into a fully integrated creative campaign.

Digital Communications

Managing an online presence can be daunting for any business. Let our team of experts evaluate and implement the perfect mixture of email marketing, website development and management and sharing sites to ensure the story you’re telling your audience behind the screen has all the components that make you awesome.

Advocacy Communications

Issue-based work requires public testimony; meetings with decision makers, creative tactics to achieve media and presentation training to ensure you effectively deliver your message. As your advocacy sidekicks, we identify strategic communication plans that efficiently and powerfully navigate your team to success.

Grassroots Marketing

Let our team dream a world of creative grassroots concepts that unite your audiences in person and cut through the clutter with attention-grabbing ideas.


When people look at you, what do they see? Is it memorable or forgettable? We bring your brand to life with strong business communications, creative event concepts, content creation and more to strategically magnify who you already are.


Knowing what not to say is just as important as knowing what to say — and we help you with both. Our team takes complicated, historical topics and melts those into palatable sound bites that we help you use. Voila. Now you sound like an expert — and people still know what you’re talking about.

Social Media

Kids these days. Adults these days. Everyone’s using social media, and as a result it can be hard to keep up with. Don’t ignore it because it’s overwhelming. Let us help you capitalize on all social media has to offer your brand and develop creative solutions to manage this program.

Internal Communications

Keeping employees, boards and investors informed remains one of the most important elements to every business. We will help you define a long-term strategy for keeping your internal audiences up-to-date and design an internal communications program to ease stress and celebrate greatness.

Extension-of-Staff Communications

Need it all? Our team would love to join yours as your extension-of-staff communications department that handles all your storytelling needs. We’re so effective you may think we’re actually on your payroll.

  • Elayne Fowler Electra

    I’ve worked with a bazillion marketing people in a myriad of business structures and it’s not often I am so impressed. Mixte ‘won’ my business with their passionate, strategic and consistently engaged approach. They live what they believe in.

    Elayne Fowler, Marketing Director, Electra Bicycle Company

  • Bruce Reznik

    Mixte has the ability to communicate complex environmental issues in a way that educates and engages a wide audience, and the resulting growth in Coastkeeper’s membership, volunteer base and name recognition due to their efforts has been outstanding.

    Bruce Reznik, Executive Director, San Diego Housing Federation (Former Executive Director, San Diego Coastkeeper)

  • Rachel Shemirani

    All of our events with Mixte go beyond the events themselves in that they get us media attention, increase our website traffic and boost our social media presence. On top of that, Mixte just gets us, constantly giving us support and preparing us for the next big thing.

    Rachel Shemirani, Marketing Manager, Barons Market

    San Diego Coastkeeper is the region’s go-to organization for water issues and we rely on Mixte Communications to keep our voice in the forefront of the public’s newsfeed. Personal, professional and proactive. Mixte Communications knows the business of public relations and they dedicate themselves to knowing their clients’ business as well. That’s why they are so effective in recognizing and taking advantage of opportunities on our behalf.

    Megan Baehrens, Executive Director, San Diego Coastkeeper

  • amy-liz

    Mixte Communications completely changed the game for Finest City Improv. After struggling how to best do PR within our own staff (and feeling like we were getting absolutely no where!) we made one of the smartest decisions of our business’ history and brought Mixte on. They are truly professional, dedicated, and determined to see their clients succeed. We fell in love with their “extension of staff” style of business that truly connected us from day one. Everyone on our team raves about Mixte and the progress they are making for us. We know that if Mixte puts their power and energy behind our project, it is certain to excel beyond what we could ever imagine.

    Amy Lisewski, Finest City Improv

  • Garry_brown

    Orange County Coastkeeper is the predominate environmental organization focused on all water issues for Orange County and the Inland Empire. Historically, our weakness has been telling our story and expanding our media exposure. We tried full-time communications people with mixed results. Always impressed with the results Mixte got for San Diego Coastkeeper, we started working with Mixte and after one full year, we could not be happier with their passionate and proactive work ethic and the results they achieved for us.

    Garry Brown, Executive Director, Orange County Coastkeeper

  • Sandy-Hanshaw-Traci-Smith

    Mixte is such an integral part of my small business. They are an extension of our staff and have been a big part of our success since we started working together. Mixte gets me! They are more than a PR firm, they are like family and work really hard and know the culture of my business and how to best compliment it.

    Sandy Hanshaw, Owner of The Wine Pub

  • Sandy-Hanshaw-Traci-Smith

    When C2 Education entered the San Diego market, we were looking for our PR partner to establish credibility and drive new enrollment. After a thorough search, we went with Mixte Communications and they were instantly a team of rock stars. They dove headfirst into our business and began looking for innovative ways to get the word out about our market entry and find a fantastic philanthropic partner. They secured high-reach media opportunities for C2, along with building and implementing business-driving marketing opportunities

    Bill Black, Vice President, Marketing, C2 Education

  • Diane_EHC

    From healthy ‘hoods to climate justice, Environmental Health Coalition is a complex and grassroots bi-national environmental justice organization. Mixte is with us, in every way, helping to increase public awareness and raise vital funds. I am continuously amazed at the range of skills, knowledge and persistence that Mixte brings to EHC and I’m so glad they are on our team!
