About

More than
5 decades in the making!

We began in 1962 in downtown LA as The Art Group providing design services from corporate identity to packaging and collateral materials. As the millennium changed, so too did our direction. We sought to increase our marketing capabilities as a complement to the strong pillar of design and promotion.

Today, H.Q. is a full-service agency known for excellence in strategic thinking, creative development and execution of a broad range of out-of-home, mobile and shopper experiences.
