What do you do when you realize that it’s right about time that more than 5 decades of Pakistani advertising finally needs an echoing voice to help it step into a brighter future; to become the spark that will light the torch for the advertisers and marketers of Pakistan?…Well if you are committed to an idea and goals like these, you just might end up with something like Synergyzer in your own hands.

I still remember when first gazed upon a copy of Synergyzer back in the early 2015; it was something that clearly stood out for someone who already read a lot of magazines and literature. It was different; a compilation of wonderfully vibrant and relevant content that made me go through and across each page with great interest and detail. That first issue I received was an inspiration for me to join the team and so I did…

After spending about three years with Synergyzer, witnessing an overwhelming response to a magazine I can call my own and seeing the impact it made in the industry professionals and students alike over the course of 1.5 decades; I present to you the 15 Years Annual Special. We have worked around the clock to concoct a masterpiece comprising of insights, comments and views of some of the golden personalities and organizations that certainly put their mark across the Pakistani advertising and corporate landscape.
