I've worked with Mixte since 2013 and this is the first (and only) PR agency I recommend to anyone who wants their brand to stand for something true. They turn your company into a storytelling machine and do more than just hawk products just for the sake of getting any kind of coverage. They understand what you value, know the media market, and come up with messaging themes and campaigns that make you stand out.

Karim BourisExecutive Director, Business For Good San Diego

The assessment Mixte did for us created a strong springboard for our work going forward as
we develop strategies to serve refugee communities.

Donna DuvinExecutive Director, International Rescue Committee (IRC) San Diego

I appreciate that the team at Mixte is passionate about their work-- and GRID’s too. They’ve made a real difference in our ability to reach potential clients and to tell our story to the broader community.

Paul ClearyExecutive Director, GRID Alternatives San Diego

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 ShemiraniMarketing Manager, Barons Market

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!

Diane TakvorianExecutive Director and Founder, Environmental Health Coalition

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 BaehrensExecutive Director, San Diego Coastkeeper

Mixte completely changed the game for Finest City Improv. After struggling with how to best do PR internally (and feeling like we were getting absolutely nowhere!), we made one of the smartest decisions of our business’ history and brought Mixte on. They are professional, dedicated, and determined to see their clients succeed. We fell in love with their “extension of staff” style of business. Everyone on our team raves about Mixte and the progress they are making for us.

Amy LisewskiFounder, CEO and Artistic Director, Finest City Improv

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 them and after a year, we could not be happier with their passionate and proactive work ethic and the results they achieved for us.

Garry BrownExecutive Director, Orange County Coastkeeper

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 HanshawOwner, The Wine Pub

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 BlackVice President of Marketing, C2 Education

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 ReznikExecutive Director, Los Angeles Waterkeeper

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.
