Company Core Values
Below are the values we use to do what we set out to do: elevate the industry.
User Experience comes first.
We care about your experience working with us, as well as your customers' experience, and we prioritize that in our projects.
Listen to Learn.
We think that the best marketing starts with listening. We listen to you and your customers to hear what solutions need solving and learn about your needs so we can help.
Transparency in everything.
This includes not only providing you with the information and results of our efforts, but also explaining what it means and how it's used. The good and the bad is always communicated and discussed.
Respect the industry, the product, the people, the process.
Respect is a big part of working with anyone, and when we partner with your brand, we will always ensure that our services and relationship respect the product, the people, the process, and most importantly, the industry as a whole.
Proper technique is key.
Whether it's how to hold a jigger, how to make a mai tai, or how to export a video file, we make sure it's done properly.
NEMO & ANDI SET OUT TO ELEVATE THE INDUSTRY
Twist & Tailor started in November 2020. It was meant to be the minute Nemo and Andi first started working together.
Andi has over a decade of business experience, running a marketing agency, an ecommerce business, a manufacturing business, a luxury barbershop, a photography agency, to only name a few.
Nemo has a decade of experience in food and beverage and high end bars, and went to school for graphic design, making him a heavy hitter behind the bar and the keyboard.
When they met and started working together for photo shoots for distilleries, the next step of turning their endeavors into a full blown marketing agency to help the food and beverage industry grow was just... natural.
Meet Our Founders
Business might as well be her middle name. But her last name is fitting enough.
She designed her first web site at 8 years old (and still has it saved on a hard drive in the office). She cut her teeth working in the creative world when she started a skateboard magazine in 2010. She ran a private event bartending business in LA, where she bartended at celebrities' homes and events. She also is well known in the beard world for crafting some of the best hair care scents out there.
She learned business from the inside out, and now uses her past experiences to help beverage brands grow.
CREATIVE & BEVERAGE DIRECTOR
Nemo is the literal hands of the operation. He helped start Twist & Tailor as bartender and hand model. Soon after founding the agency with Andi, he was designing cocktail books and packaging design for brands around the world. He has crafted thousands of custom cocktail recipes for over 300 brands since starting T&T in 2020.
He has a background in graphic design and an extensive history behind the bar. His approach to cocktails is nerdy and he's often described as a mad scientist. He holds the bar high for the cocktail content we put out in any form.
You can trust your brand's design and user experience in his hands.

More About Andi & Nemo Whiskey
Andi and Nemo met in 2020 to work together.
In the very first photo shoot, Nemo showed up to bartend and model for Andi Whiskey, who was shooting for a whiskey brand.
The brand rep had worked with Andi previously, and was there to watch the shoot.
The minute Nemo and Andi began shooting, the brand rep asked how long they had been working together.
They laughed and said, "30 minutes."
The rep was astonished, because everything was immediately seamless betwen the two.
They recognized the chemistry, too, and continued to work together for 3 months before deciding to start Twist & Tailor together.
A year and a few months later, they had been through it all together, from huge wins to massive losses and everything in between; they were recognized in the industry as a power duo to be reckoned with.
So one day, naturally, they realized they liked life together, as work partners and life partners.
The rest, as they say, is history.

Andi & the team were amazing to work with. From
Styling to getting product to them, it was a breeze. The quality of images were very professional. We will no doubt use them again, and suggest them toeveryone we know. Thank you for all your hard work!
Andi and Nemo are fantastic to work with and very professional. The pictures for our whiskey brand turned out amazing and we received them in such a short amount of time. They are so creative as well!
I've had Andi and her team shoot 3 spirits brands (a vodka, a whiskey, and a tequila) and will continue using them whenever possible, as they are a dream to work with! She understands the vision, is easy to work with and her turnaround time is super quick. I would highly recommend Twist & Tailor.
