Company History

Joanne Stokes started in construction photography in 1985, taking photos of various job sites in New Jersey. Soon after, a video documentation system that involved driving the proposed project site with a van and cameraperson was developed and specified in contracts throughout the Northeast.

From there, JMS Visual Communications began working with some of the best engineering firms in the world and quickly developed the ability to turn complex engineering and planning into useful public information. They evolved into creating complete video productions for both broadcast and VHS distribution. From historic trains to how a treatment plant works, JMS always provided clients with equal quality and creativity.

Recognizing that helping clients become more successful also improved JMS’s success, the next big jump was adding a marketing and advertising department. Producing brochures and logos naturally progressed into building websites and offering complete product development. In 2010, JMS rebranded under the broader umbrella of Stokes Creative Group, Inc., a full-service marketing agency specializing in providing quality solutions for the transportation and construction industries.

Today, the Stokes creative team of over 30 professionals can handle any project – from marketing for an equipment company to public outreach on a $4 billion project. They design and create what is needed to tell our clients’ stories and to make them successful. Call Stokes today to tell your story…
