About Us

The Project Group mission is to offer a broad range of communication services to a select group of clients.

We have all our studios under one roof, offering art/design, photography, imaging, event, video, digital and writing services.

The Project Group began in the late 1960s as Projects Automotive and was originally owned and operated by two prominent motoring journalists and publicists.

Incarnated in its present form in 1973, The Project Group now encompasses a far broader range of services and expertise.

Over 40 years the company has pioneered many communication innovations in business-to-media, franchiser-to-franchisee and intra-business sectors. Today we are continuing to innovate in the areas of digital content creation and social media.

  • We go the extra distance to uncover the essence of your product and communicate it effectively.
  • We work with you to find good news, create compelling content and tell the best possible story.
  • We combine diverse in-house talents to deliver a superior result while controlling time, quality and cost.
