Truth, be told.

Whether we’re building stories and experiences for brands to engage with their customers, building brands that contextualize human insights, or building businesses by helping corporations and venture capital groups de-risk innovation, we love working with the humans we serve. From startups to Fortune 100s, we strive to reveal truth. Because truth is what moves people to act.

Diversity, Inclusion, Growth — and Our Impact

It’s bigger than any moment.

We are Creative Anthropologists, uncovering truths to better understand and empathize with people. It’s those truths that drive us to continually embed Diversity, Inclusion & Growth [DIG] into the foundation of how we operate. The DIG team is a group of internal advocates who believe in the power of engaging different perspectives, experiences, and partnerships to actively drive progress within and beyond our walls.


Our [DIG] Mission:

At Hyperquake, we believe that every human is an innately unique individual. We celebrate our differences and learn from each other’s truths to build a community where everyone is recognized and respected. As we move forward, we are committed to fostering a culture of diversity, inclusion and growth. There’s a lot in the works and a lot more to do.

Our 5 [DIG] initiatives for enduring change:

Hiring practices with higher standards

Inclusive policies & procedures that empower accountability

Create inclusive solutions for diverse audiences

Serve our local, national & international creative communities

Invest in our employees and their growth

Hyperquake is a founding member of the Huenited Collective

Driving Impact

Anticipate and create opportunities. Identify challenges. Advocate and advance solutions. These are the core values of Hyperquake’s Impact Team. A group of dedicated and tenured employees who bridge the gap between the day-to-day work and decisions being made at the Leadership level, the Impact Team works each day to ensure that every Quaker’s voice is represented. The Impact Team was created in 2018 as a limited-time engagement to seamlessly bring two teams together following the acquisition of The Brand Experience. With a strong desire to make a meaningful and lasting impact on a consistent basis, the team renewed and broadened their focus to include protecting and driving company culture, identifying areas for growth and improvement at the individual and business level, and spearheading solutions for expected and unexpected challenges.


As the world and businesses change, the needs of our people also change. This requires OUR Impact Team to be agile, ever-evolving to meet new needs.
