At Liquid, we believe the best results come from getting details right throughout the customer’s journey: removing unnecessary friction while also creating moments to engage, entertain and delight.

In formulating a strategy, we go deep into data and research to understand the customer’s lived experience, and then we test ideas to find the best interventions along the path to purchase and beyond.
