Concept Development and Project Management

From brainstorming to execution, PhotoAssist turns your ideas into publications, web sites, products, or media campaigns. We anchor the creative process, solve unexpected problems, and scrutinize the details while keeping an eye on the bigger picture.

Since the 1990s, we’ve written, edited, fact-checked, researched photos, and cleared rights for the U.S. Postal Service’s annual Stamp Yearbook, published by HarperCollins from 2000 to 2010.

Stamps and parks tell similar stories—so when the National Park Service and the U.S. Postal Service decided to collaborate, we brainstormed with designers and officials from both agencies to create The Grandest Things: Our National Parks in Words, Images, and Stamps. We wrote this tribute to some of America’s best loved places and provided photos, artwork, and behind-the-scenes legal research.

When the Postal Service needed a unique collectible to accompany four 2012 stamps honoring baseball players, we worked with designers and rights holders to develop Play Ball! Great Moments in Major League Baseball® History. Packed with stories that pay tribute to America’s game, this 38-page book looks and feels like a ballpark program and features terrific paintings by baseball artist Greg Kreindler.

“We have worked with PhotoAssist for many years. The experience has been uniformly positive. They handle everything on our annual projects, from soup to nuts. We rely on them, and we are never disappointed.”
