eyemg starts as a multimedia division of Publishing Solutions
Our studio began as a multimedia integration firm in 1993. Through Publishing Solutions Inc., our parent company, we were introduced to advertising agencies and corporate divisions interested in creating Multimedia content. Before we were able to sell and integrate the hardware and software necessary to do multimedia, we had to learn it. This created an environment which fostered a very creative, technically-savvy team called the interactive media group. Our clients eventually started to realize that, much like television production, multimedia required not one, but many people's expertise to get a project done. This resulted in our clients asking us to produce their projects for them. Eventually, we decided our talents were better utilized on the creative and technical production of multimedia, and not the integration.
