Astronaut is a full-service advertising agency with a specialized focus. We concentrate on those emerging, sometimes explosive categories shaping the economy of the 21st century — clean tech, renewable energy, green build, sustainable consumer goods and services. In particular, we serve the pioneers working at the intersection of technology, energy, and agriculture. And we have a simple mission: sustainability through the power of world-class brands.

With high-caliber creative and strategic work, and with a strong relationship, we can grow the businesses that make the world a better place. And that’s good for everyone.


Our crew brings considerable experience serving Fortune 500 consumer, technology and financial brands, from apparel to agriculture, from health care to high tech, from coffee to cars. Astronaut’s people know how to go deep, fix problems and put smiles on the right faces, however big or new your enterprise may be.

Since our launch in 2007, we’ve served a 200-year-old global Fortune 100 stalwart, renewable energy luminaries, mature biotechnology, manufacturing and financial services companies; scrappy start-ups and non-profits out to change the world. In other words, we’ve been getting ready for you.


Astronaut’s work has delivered double-digit leaps in sales and awareness for our clients — from the global enterprises to grassroots entrepreneurs. And perhaps more important, our approach to strategy and execution has established coherent, exhilarating brands built to last. After all, the most sustainable businesses are the ones with the most resilient brands. Let’s build one for you.
