Who We Are

We create moments of awe through spatial storytelling with flawless execution. At Project Meta, we approach spatial design holistically, working seamlessly between creative and technical design practices, simplifying the creation of unforgettable immersive experiences.

We love bringing brands to life. From the biggest moments to the simplest engagements, we obsess over every detail. Collaboration is at the core of what we do, and it's through this that we achieve our best work.

Project Meta is minority owned and committed to sharing the talents of those least represented in our field of work.
