Work

We don’t just create ads, commercials, apps and campaigns – we create lasting change for our clients and their customers, every single day.

 

Culture

Work hard, play often, and do as much good for people as you can. Both in and out of the office, that’s the Pulsar way.

People

Thinkers. Dreamers. Creators. Doers. We come from many different backgrounds, yet are all working toward a common goal.

When each one of us dedicates a single act to making somebody else feel better we create, in a clear moment, an outburst of positive energy. It’s as simple as that. Just talk to anyone, validate their presence and establish a dialogue. In a moment, powerful opportunities present themselves to make that other person feel better. So, go ahead talk to someone. That action in itself is incredibly empowering. Then ask yourself, how good can you be at making their world a little bit better.

Making a difference, having an impact or Doing a World of Good. The truth is that any one of us can take actions every day to make the world a better place. And we should! But the magic happens when our team partners with a client and together we Do a World of Good in a BIG WAY. For me, whether I’m helping out at my church, serving on my local non-profit board or developing the next generation of marketers, it’s all Doing a World of Good to me – and truthfully – it’s the most rewarding part of my day!

Katherine

After almost, let’s say an ample amount of years in this business, I find the most pleasure in watching the Pulsar team adapt to new challenges. I love being able to open doors for the creative and inspired ideas they bring to our clients every day. This makes the world good to me and makes me smile whenever our collective agency and client teams succeed.

Andy
Creative Director

Creative Director

I ride my bike to the office to do a world of good for the planet. I think creatively and strategically all day to do a world of good for my clients. I make time to play after work to do a world of good for my kids. And I write parenting books with my wife at night to do a world of good for families everywhere. All that may not do a world of good for the amount of sleep I usually get, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Morgan

I get my idea of doing a world of good from this thing my mom planted into my head years ago and it’s stuck with me. Our reactions are stones being thrown in a pond, which is made up of people and our environment, and we can have negative or positive ripples. We’re not always going to make positive ones but it’s important that we’re aware of how our actions impact other people. You want to be thinking about what is the effect of all these small things you’re putting into the world.

I believe advertisers have a responsibility to do a World of Good. You can’t try to fool people. The solution to a creative problem has to be genuine and persuade from a truth. That’s why I share each day’s work with my two teen daughters – if they think I’m selling products and services in a positive way, I know I can sleep easy every night.

Peter

I’m extremely sensitive to the energy I bring to the workplace. It’s important to me that the people I work with feel safe and comfortable. I’m concerned about the overall collaborative process and the energy of the environment around me. I try to be approachable, have a sense of humor about stuff. And to never miss an opportunity to do the same things outside of work.

Lizzy
Creative Art Director

Creative Art Director

Part of being a creative thinker is coming up with solutions that minimize your environmental impact. Using design to solve problems. Coming up with more efficient approaches to product designs by using fewer materials or those with less of an effect on the environment. I try to apply those standards to my job, and to be conscious about the amount of resources we use. It’s all about living consciously.

Doing a world of good means finding a personal purpose that contributes to society as a whole. For me, that’s animal-rescue work, not only because they’re some of the most vulnerable beings, but also because of what they can do for humans. They can bring therapy and rehabilitation and enrichment to our lives. But doing a world of good doesn’t have to be about finding a cause. If every person contributed just a little of their passion and talents, we could make a real difference on a local or community level.

A world of good to me means to leave no stone unturned. To be a master of adventure. I want to see and experience everything this planet has to offer. That’s why I travel and try new things as often as possible. So I can understand new cultures, find new waves. The best way to do a world of good is to understand and appreciate that world.

Doing ‘A World of Good’ is making decisions that benefit not only me, but also the people around me. Whether it’s going car-free and taking public transit to reduce traffic congestion and CO2 emissions, recycling at the office and at home, or donating my hair to organizations that provide wigs for women and children with cancer, it’s incredibly satisfying to know that I am helping improve other people’s quality of life. I am proud to work for an organization that believes in the ‘good’ of the collective and encourages me to do the same.

I don’t talk about doing a world of good; I live it. Every day I try to make a personal connection with a stranger…whether they’re a fellow passenger on the train going to work in the morning, the barista making my coffee or the cold-calling sales person just trying to do their job. We’re all lost in our world with our faces buried in our phones. You’d be surprised how often you can make someone’s day just by smiling and saying hello.

Roni
Office Manager

Office Manager

For me, doing “A World of Good” is being as pleasant and helpful to all those around me; family, co-workers, neighbors, friends and strangers. We will never know how a kind gesture, word of encouragement or just a smile can affect someone’s day for the better and hopefully cause a “ripple effect” that will spread to many more people. I hope that this small contribution will ultimately change the outlook for our future to a more positive and hopeful one.

I often contemplate the world. I am a deep thinker like that. To me it is all about bringing smiles and positive energy to those I come in contact with. Whether it be by performing tricks or just looking adorable I always am fishing for that smile and a few treats. The world can be measured in moments and the more positive ones I bring into peoples lives the better the world will be.

To me, “Doing a World of Good” means putting your best effort into the task at hand, being willing to go the extra mile to solve a problem, and going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that a job is done right.  It also means not being afraid to speak up and be an advocate for doing what is right, even when doing so is difficult or uncomfortable.  “Doing a World of Good” means remembering that the most important work we do, and the most important things we build or create are relationships with other people.  Connecting with others in the workplace to have fun working together on projects that have a meaningful, positive impact on the community around us is important to me.

We are all born with innate qualities that are needed to make this world a better place every day. We also all have goals, aspirations, hobbies and passions that we often don’t act on or share. For me Doing A World of Good, is to support one another in our goals and encourage one another to go after whatever we are most passionate about makes this world a better place.

Janice

Doing a World of Good is simply the Golden Rule we were taught as kids. Treat others as you would like to be treated. The thoughtfulness you can show others by saying good morning or greeting a stranger on the street with a smile goes a long way in a world of good. Nothing makes me happier than sitting outside with my four-legged best friend and greeting all the people in the neighborhood after a hard day at work. It’s often the simplest things that make the world a better place.

Doing a World of Good means smoothing out the frown lines and frustration on someone’s face once a day with a kind word or gesture.

Chelsea

It’s incredibly easy to become absorbed in our day-to-day, consumed by life’s adventures and challenges. Doing a World of Good is remembering to always think of others despite what may be going on in our own lives and recognizing that our actions, big and small, can impact someone else’s life. Whether volunteering at our local dog park, learning about and giving back to a local charity, being there for a friend, or offering a smile to a stranger, I always strive to lead by example and empower others to always strive to Do a World of Good. You never know when something as small as holding the door open for a stranger can be the change they need to turn their day around.
