Newport Apartments

Originally an architectural project from 2006, we have updated the images with our new rendering software V-Ray. A full set of interiors and furniture were added to the original job.

Mobility Bathrooms

Please ‘double click’ the slideshow below to view in full screen

This client has used our services since 2010 to produce a range of around 25 walk-in baths, showers and limited mobility bathing solutions. The videos were an after thought as the main focus was on print and web still images. The interactive 3d model display was produced as a test.

Graphic Design Jobs

We have been producing graphic designs and illustrations for over 30 years. Our work is now more focused on CGI and emerging technologies but we have a solid understanding of all aspects of the art, design, photography, video and print businesses.

BurBax Boilers

The computer generated image below was commissioned by a boiler manufacturer. The product shown was only at a prototyping stage so traditional photograph wouldn’t have been possible. The final image was used in a print catalogue and website.

Residential Housing

This project was to produce still and video marketing images from the supplied architects plans and elevations. The project was shelved before the interior modelling was completed.

The test online 3d model below was quickly added by ourselves. Obviously it’s unfinished but it is useful to showcase what is possible.

Dashcam fitting instructional video

This video was included with the product as a DVD and also available online. The purpose was to explain the fitting and basic operation of this new type of dashcam. The client saved a lot of product returns from customers who couldn’t be bothered to read the manual to be able to set the dashcam up.

For a fuller explanation of WebGL-

WebGL is a cross-platform, royalty-free web standard for a low-level 3D graphics API based on OpenGL via the HTML5 Canvas element. Developed in 2011 and used with languages such as JavaScript.

WebGL brings plugin-free 3D to the web, implemented right into the browser. Major browser vendors Apple (Safari), Google (Chrome), Microsoft (Edge), and Mozilla (Firefox) are members of the WebGL Working Group.

This online interactive 3D model works on all platforms, devices and operating systems. The CAD model used here was ‘auto-simplified’ for cost reasons. For optimal efficiency we recommend completely re-builing from scratch but this would involve time/costs.

These online models are essentially mini ‘computer games’ where the rendering of images is completed in real-time on the viewers’ device/computer. As the variety of devices can range from old/slow to new/fast a decision must be made as to the performance versus quality of the 3D models.

Clovelly visitors kiosk video

This half hour Visitor Video Display project was undertaken on a very tight budget. For example, one morning to go through the ‘archive’ of probably 10-20 thousand uncatalogued slides and photos. The script was researched and written by ourselves. The brief was to engage and entertain casual visitors to Clovelly, who has previously looked into the chapel but rarely spent any time there. But also educate about the history of the chapel and Methodism as well as try to engage the viewer with the current and future forms of worship.

One of the most basic rules of script writing/ storytelling is never to ‘preach’ (an instant turn off to most audiences) which made this project especially challenging. However as we have installed and maintained the video display we have seen first hand how well this has worked (as well as looking at the visitor book comments and increase in the donations box).

Due to the unusual religious building copyright laws (where copyrighted materials can be shown in the chapel only) only a very edited version is shown here.

Gainsborough Baths

This job was for a client whose customers were care homes. The bathroom set had to accurately reflect the clinical regulations in place while also being contemporary and show casing the bath in a attractive light. The images in the gallery above show how the final image was arrived at (in reverse order).
