TRG Multimedia Launches Residency Program | CLEVELAND /PRNewswire/ — TRG Multimedia is launching a new microsite entitled RESIDENCY on Wednesday, July 27, 2022. This new site displays uniquely curated spaces, hinting at inspired interior design, all crafted by the team of creatives at TRG. RESIDENCY invites viewers to experience the art of design in a collection of imagery that highlights industry trends.
“Residency is an opportunity to showcase our talent in a new light. We created something special by allowing ourselves to focus on our vulnerabilities and approach a showcase of imagery differently,” says Adam Wilde, President of TRG Multimedia. “Letting our Art Directors, Stylists and Set Designers take the driver’s seat and push the boundaries of the creative process inspired our Photo, Video, and CGI teams to collaborate and truly define what excellence can be. We couldn’t be more proud to present this campaign as every hand at TRG played a part in its creation. We hope all who have the opportunity to view the piece can walk away stimulated, inspired, and informed, but more so, ready to dig deep into their own creations.”
