Celebrating our 20th Year in Business
Liquid Creative is located at 8 Lakeland Circle, in the heart of Jackson, Mississippi. We began as a Mississippi branch of Squires & Company, a respected Dallas-based agency in business since 1975. Liquid owner Elizabeth Crisler partnered with Squires and opened the Jackson branch in 1999 with a card table, phone and a $10,000 investment. In 2003, Elizabeth acquired the business solely, and the name Liquid Creative was born. "Liquid Creative" symbolizes our fluidity and adaptability in all projects, with all clients - from healthcare to start-ups and non-profits...and beyond!
Since the 2003 name change, the agency has doubled in size and tripled in client base and billings. In 2009, we were named to the Mississippi Business Journal's "Fast 40," honoring the fastest growing businesses in the state. And, in 2017, the Journal also named Elizabeth as one of Mississippi's Top CEOs and recognized her as one of Mississippi Leading Business Women in 2003 and 2017. In 2018, Elizabeth was honored by Belhaven University with the Entrepreneurial Award.
Our goal is to offer a full team of professionals who can provide any branding service a client requires, in-house and with full service. We have a very talented team with diverse backgrounds and skills that can do just that! We write, design, strategize, place media, program websites, develop software, photograph, create video, manage production, create branded interiors and account for it all in one building. It's teamwork at its best!
