Create an off-the-shelf corporate culture and all you’ll get is off-the-shelf solutions. That’s fine if you’re just punching the clock, but that ain’t us. We’re here to do innovative work because we love forging the uncommon path for exhibit and experiential marketing. We apply that same fresh thinking (some might call it “insanity,” but whatever) to our culture to keep our creative spirits flexible and engaged. If you ever want an invite to one of our Friday High 5s or Space Jams, just say the words. Keep an eye on our Instagram and you’ll see the kinds of shenanigans we get into.
Because it takes a certain level of unorthodoxy to relentlessly pursue innovation for our clients, Sector 5 is powered by a menagerie of one-offs drumming to a different beat. That’s cool though; our one-offs are great at parties. We are black belts and musicians, streetcar racers and comic artists. We crush it on karaoke night and know a lot (a lot) about beer.
So take a moment to get to know us. We probably have a few things in common.
