Graphic Design and Photography

An important part of the marketing process is creating innovative and engaging graphic design.  We do this for our clients including working with some of the top photographers in the Los Angeles area and nationally.

For the past 26 years we have produced an annual wall calendar featuring a hallmark project with electrical work by our client the National Electrical Contractors Assn, and IBEW Local 11.  We select the project, get all necessary approvals and work with our photographer and shoot about 200 images of each project.  We then work with our graphics team to create a HDR (High Dynamic Range) perfect shot.   The calendar is distributed countywide to leading political and business leaders.

Here are some of the photographs of projects featured in prior calendars.  Concepts and art direction by FMG:

Difference between marketing and public relations (PR)

A number of years I was in a meeting and the client said, “what we need is more PR.”  Well, I said, that’s what we do.  He then went on to talk about how a billboard at a certain intersection would be great. “But I thought you said PR,” I said. “Yea, he responded. PR.  […]
