We are an independent, global network of wholly owned creative agencies. With 2,200+ people in 52 offices, Project’s agencies make things that inspire people to participate and act on behalf of our clients’ brands.
We are born from experiential. Back in 2010, George P. Johnson was the leading experiential marketing company in the world. Robert G. Vallee, Jr. had the idea of creating a holding company that could deliver a deeper level of consumer engagement across the entire marketing spectrum. Project Worldwide was formed with the intention to invest in agencies that could deliver more engaging brand stories. Whether that means producing the largest technology conferences, immersing audiences in fantastic worlds of light and color, or helping brands pave the way in the digital era, Project’s agencies make things that inspire people to participate and act on behalf of our clients’ brands.
With 2,200+ people in 52 offices, our 13 agencies are ready and able to help marketers clear any hurdle with a deep bench of expertise spanning advertising, branding, design, ecommerce, event production and fabrication, shopper marketing, talent booking, PR, and social media.
We are Project, an independent network in service of creativity.
At Project, each person unique in background – ability, age, gender, orientation, race, religion, and status – is an essential thread in the fabric of our community. This mindset is woven into our culture, day-to-day practice, and the service we provide. Inclusion enables growth. Diversity fuels innovation. Individuals shine and teams radiate. Every person, project, and product is elevated. This is our philosophy and pledge: to create an all-embracing circle of diverse backgrounds, open-minded people and unique perspectives from which extraordinary growth and innovation can emerge.
