Effective VISUAL COMMUNICATION is more than just pretty pictures - there is an in-depth strategy, an understanding and deeper level of design thinking that goes into great visual design.

At Place Design Group, we have adopted a co-design ethos for our creative design services, to deeply understand our client’s needs and deliver clever, creative and well-informed graphic communication outcomes that exceed client expectations.

Our team of leading graphic designers, art directors and communicators understand the planning and design industry intimately. In close collaboration with our clients, we work hard to bring every project to life. We strive to communicate the project in the right way, to the right audience. We can be creative or comply with corporate guidelines. We can work in technical and layman’s terms. We translate complexity with strategic simplicity.

our points of difference


Distil. Refine. Design.

Not dissimilar to the distillation process in chemistry, we liken this communication process to the simple “extraction of the essential meaning”. Together our team will distil, refine and design the view of the technical information in our work, whilst combining community aspirations and stakeholder expectations to inform clear, highly engaging and visually appealing communication outputs.


We are visual storytellers

Our in-house graphic communications experts are skilled in the entire creative process, from storyboard development, creative direction, brand strategy, concept creation, visual and digital communications.

We take a strategic approach to the use of infographics and visual assets in all our creative work, using a bespoke suite of highly visual graphic tools to inform and engage the community and improve project outcomes. Our team pride themselves on producing creative work that balances highly engaging communication with easy to understand, informative graphics (such as mapping, iconography, infographics, illustrations, imagery and digital assets) that reinforce the project messaging.


We work with you to tell your story and get your message across.


Combined insights

We know that communicating our client’s work can be as important as the projects themselves. To do this successfully, we centre our creative design and strategic thinking around the combined skills and knowledge of our in-house, multi-disciplinary team. We deliver a fit for purpose, technically accurate and insight rich approach to each and every project.
