Welcome to Kristie & Company, your creative brand ambassadors who serve our customers an authentic brand, like Whiskey in a Teacup. You may be asking what Whiskey in Teacups have to do with a PR Firm, Yes? Well, let us explain. At Kristie & Company, we toss the phrase "She is Whiskey in a Teacup" around like glitter. Not only does it literally define our fearless leader, Kristie Vento, it's our Brand Mantra. The walls in our creative HQ are literally wallpapered in this concept. She is Whiskey in a Teacup is a dare to be extraordinary; to identify the unique in everything, and it best defines our strategy in building brands for our customers. Branding is a State of Mind, and the Best Brands create lifestyles that their customers want to live and breathe in.
The concept is more than just a metaphor, it's Kristie's truth. She's been called a brandaholic, and some have even said that her love for creating brands could use its own 12 step. But in life, and in business, she winks at them while running with arms wide open to that teacup filled with creative whiskey (or champagne - she's not picky)...and she drinks.
And Kristie and her AWARD-WINNING agency are legit. She built a career in luxury branding in the hospitality, travel, events & retail industries (um, for about 20 years or so), so she knows a thing or twelve about creating and taking brands to market, and she and her team even run a retail brand in all their spare time.
SHE IS WHISKEY IN A TEACUP is a lifestyle brand with clothing and accessories celebrating the Fearless, Wayward, Pure Hearted, Soul Drenched Wonders Who Run Barefoot into the Fire in Life, Love & Business and they peddle all this fun stuff at their boutique and beauty bar in Wills Point, online, in Facebook LIVE Sales, in Arbor 1 at First Monday Canton Trade Days & at shows throughout Texas. The brand is Old West Paris meets Annie Get Your Gun. It's quite literally like a Wild West Retail Show comprised of retail peddling, retail marketing & retail mentoring. The point is...she and the team are in the retail rodeo arena with you. We can both empathize AND share that insight with our customers who are looking to tell authentic brand stories in the most bodacious ways. Let's put it this way...we like to get our hands dirty...tossing gold glitter all over your brand.
Our killer combo lies in our ability to wrap creative design in a warm blanket of good strategy & authentic messaging...and we've made an award-winning career of it.
Kristie will say that she is a right brain with left brain tendencies (and the rest of us kinda agree). So, our team is great at helping you get started with all the nuts and bolts flotsam (like getting the right certificates, selecting names that work for web and social, crafting a business/marketing plan, etc.) and then tossing a little gold glitter on your vision with design. And, if you aren’t sure where to start or what to call your new venture, we can help with that, too! We also like to tell our clients to be bold. Never settle. Stand out. SHOUT their brands from the rooftops. And ALWAYS be original.
We are so excited to learn more about the story you’d like to tell, so let’s build your fearlessly authentic brand together! Let's spike your marketing effort by putting a little Whiskey in Your Marketing Teacup.
