Launched in 2016, S (Squared) Creative Projects started as a Display and Print Brokerage providing companies, organisations and brands a full solution under one roof working with a national network of specialist manufacturers. This service has now evolved to become a comprehensive plug-in service.
In 2018 we broadened our service offering to include the production of Live Events focusing on corporate, commercial, and retail clients. We were quickly approached by various agencies, trade fair owners and companies to create and manage the roll out of several campaigns and consumer experiences.
The need for clients to improve their presence in the digital space has evolved, and we started producing Virtual Events with original video content and productions to be live streamed to the client’s target audience.
This side of the business has now evolved to offer a full Digital Production Service.
We specialise in producing live events, hybrid events and digital events with over 10 years’ experience in the events industry.
We have spent many years building up a formidable network of highly qualified and experienced collaborators within our business eco-system to offer you the best of the best in our industry.
Whatever your campaign objectives are we have the full solution to give you a narrative driven and engaging result guaranteeing a return on your investment. Read More
