About Pearlfisher


What is it like to work for Pearlfisher

My Team
My Team
In August 2013 Pearlfisher hosted their annual Creative Day. This is an event specially designed for their studio to get out of the office, out from behind their computers, and take part in activities that aim to inspire them in new ways and build team relations. They hire an external venue and provide food, drinks, transportation and materials for all their employees. Pearlfisher covers all costs for the team building creative event. For their team building event this year, they hired an old mansion house on the river in Hammersmith London, organised organic catering for the full day, including breakfast, lunch and tea/coffee/juice/snacks throughout the day. All Pearlfisher employees were picked up from the agency with a bus that they hired for the day and were transported to and from the venue. On the day, the team were set tasks by using the inspiring space/rooms of the Mansion House to fulfil design briefs. They promoted internal collaboration and co-creation resulting in some great future design concepts that have begun to inspire and influence the work they are now doing for themselves and for their clients. As an agency that designs the future, Pearlfisher also close the studio for 2 days a year and host internal days for the whole company in which their Futures Director presents big picture change in 1 of 4 areas – Taste, Luxury, Body and Connection. They are then tasked with breaking into smaller groups to come up with ideas for future design concepts based on the changes they've been presenting. These sessions are fantastic team building exercises because the whole company is encouraged to participate, present and work with people they don’t usually work with.

Pearlfisher host regular culturally relevant and inspiring exhibitions in their studio’s dedicated gallery space. The exhibitions are open to the public and local community. They invite the schools in their wider local area to visit their exhibitions and give talks and lectures to ensure maximum impact and inspiration. Their recent example is Man&God, a thought-provoking and highly experiential exhibition that explores the relationship between Man and God. In addition, Pearlfisher annually support Peace One Day, a global movement advocating a day of world peace, with a Pearlfisher creative campaign called Create a Masterpeace. Create a Masterpeace asks children – the peace corps of the future – to re-appropriate symbols of violence in the name of peace. For this campaign they work with both local and global children, families, classrooms, communities and volunteers to use creativity to neutralise symbols of violence and display them on streets and screens across the globe. Working with communities in this way, the Create a Masterpeace movement is inspiring an ever growing, shared voice of protest.

It was suggested by one of Pearlfisher's Strategists that a good way to ask people for their feedback would be to use Survey Monkey. They now use the anonymous questionnaire email tool to ask for staff feedback about all aspects of the company from where they should host their next First Thursday social event to lectures their team would like to attend.
