The heart of the studio is based in 3D design – this 3D influence threads its way into the various services we offer, it makes us unique, and often gives a very different take on projects.
If there’s an image or animation you desperately need to make that marketing idea really work, then turn to us – we specialise in creating images of things that just don’t exist.
If there’s a product idea you need turning into production-ready drawings, give us a call. We have over 16 years’ experience in the business.
If you need graphic-based projects carrying out with flair and design integrity, we’re ready.
We’re imaginative when we need to be, dutiful when asked to follow a brief. We’re no-nonsense. We know where to concentrate on the detail to make something work, without spending wasted time and money on the details that will never be seen. Collectively we’ve worked in:
- graphic design
- 3D visualisation
- product design and development
- computer games
- heavy engineering project management
- growing our own veg
Sure – the last one isn’t directly useful but it keeps us healthy and more likely to see your project through to the end. We thrive on a challenge, and we’ll pull the stops out to deliver you the end result you need.
CHARACTER DESIGN & ANIMATION
From initial concepts, we can model fully rigged and animation-ready characters, to be used in printed media, as flash animation assets, or in video presentations.
Working with your interior specialist, or using our own design ideas, interior images, animations and interactive tours are created for sales material, colourway viewing and presentations.
From sketches or CAD data, we produce photorealistic or stylised images and animations of products. Ideal for early sales pitches, market research and pre-production presentations.
Often an image is needed where stock photography is too expensive, or just non-existent. We give you the freedom your creatives need.
We produce photorealistic or stylised visuals of developments, and can incorporate them into brochures, flyers, advertisements, animated presentations, websites and physical models.
Using Autodesk Inventor we can fit into your product development at any stage; concept proofing, production ready detail design and sourcing parts manufacturers.
Our 3D solid modelling software allows us to provide production ready CAD files to suit your preferred manufacturing method, working from your designs or providing design input if required.
Our existing service is the perfect accompaniment to our new 3D Design service, allowing us to provide you with high quality visuals and animations of your new product.
Either as a viewing aid, marketing piece or a presentation gift, we can arrange production of physical models from CAD data in a variety of materials, depending on the final use.
Often used to complement our illustration projects, we design brochures, flyers, adverts and posters, or PDF documents for electronic distribution.
Many projects demand photography, whether for reference or as an integral part of a design. We have this capability in-house, but will bring in the best specialists if required.
Your brand is the face of your product or service - without one you are faceless. We get to know your company before coming up with the goods.
PHOTO COMPOSITING & RETOUCHING
Whether stock photography needs tweaking or entirely new elements need adding to an existing photograph - we can help.
We can place your designs on to 3D vehicle models to help your design process or sales pitch, or we can design the entire wrap - your choice.
From pop-up stands to exhibition displays, we can design the artwork and visualise the end result before manufacturing begins.
The 3D CGI part of us creates computer generated imagery of anything yet to exist. This can be used in printed media, websites (flash animations), video and DVD, computer-based media – anywhere you feel you need to use it – both still images and animation, completely computer generated or mixed with real-world images.
The brand new 3D Design element in-house allows us to not only take clients’ CAD files and make pretty pictures, but to move further down the product development ladder and to help design the products and create production ready drawings, using industry standard Autodesk Inventor. This new service is on the back of 10 years’ industry experience in this sector brought in by a new core team member. Product visualisation, a skill brought in from our CGI experience, allows clients to visualise a product before committing to manufacture, and also helps seal the deal with products new to the market.
Our 2D Design side complements the pretty 3D pictures by wrapping them up in eye-catching and relevant graphic design for sales and marketing publications, websites, video, DVD and computer presentations. It also provides our projects with location photography where necessary, and brings photo compositing and retouching to the table.
