We are a production and creative technology company offering services that unlock the communication potential where digital technologies meet the out-of-home audience – where digital experiences intersect with the real, physical world.

We combine creative thinking, technology expertise and production technique to help brands and agencies target audiences across the emerging range of digital media opportunities and physical environments in the UK and abroad.

Our clients are made up of brand teams, creative and media agencies, as well as businesses who own or operate in public facing environments.

Digital inventory has invigorated the outdoor advertising channel. Digital in the UK now represents over 40% of all out-of-home media spend and the rest of the world is following a similar path.

The medium is rich with creative opportunity but is still in the early stages in terms of having mature processes, platforms and standards. Additionally, the market is in constant flux as new inventory and technologies come into play. It’s a fantastic space for creativity and innovation but requires specialist support for brands and agencies.

Grand Visual has been operating in and helping define this exciting channel since 2005.
