2017 was an industrious
year for our CGI department. With a full production schedule for the
foreseeable, it’s time for our Pix to team expand. Set Visions would like to welcome our newest
members Jo and Leo. Some of our clients
may have already met Jo, our newest Senior Project Manager. She’s seamlessly fitted into the team with
her background in Creative Design Management. She’s very hands-on and already integral to the production team.
Secondly, we’d like to introduce Leo from the Pix team. Leo came to use via a recommendation through
Huddersfield University’s Product Design department. Leo impressed our team with his thorough
approach to 3D assets and team tasks. It
was a pleasure to ask him to stay on a full-time basis as our newest CGI
We would like to wish both Jo and Leo good luck and
hopefully you’ll beat our longest serving staff member challenge of 23 years!

photography is a perfect way to create a buzz around product launch. A
recent project saw our Capture team adapting their photography disciplines from
the studio to a fantastic industrial location.
Our international client has used the imagery to promote
their commercial launch of surface design, bridging creativity and product
practicalities. Our team worked alongside Camira fabrics to develop the
creative imagery to run alongside their existing brand strategy.
Everything from location scouting to the editorial art
direction was managed in house by our team. Following the successful location
shoot, the images will be used in the Surface Design Spotlight at Surface

in-house stylist team analyse and interpret global trends translating them into
everyday, achievable styles. A recent studio project with one of our
long-standing clients saw us use the botanical trend to give their product a
fresh, modern look.
The client’s release of their new tile
range had to reflect their ethos of a contemporary product that works within
the home. We designed a space that could
lend itself to changing with trends, with a modern kitchen and tile choice in
tones that can easily adapt to several styles within the home.
Plants are very on trend right now with
botanicals, jungle prints and the statement cacti popping up all over. The team added a little jungle vibe with
linens and crockery, then brought fresh green colours through with other
displayed pieces. Finally, adding the
succulents and ferns for that extra botanical touch.

for our monthly mailer, it's full of sneak peeks and trend insights.

CGI is a cost-effective communication tool for
housing developers, property marketing and interior designers. Working from elevations and material samples
our in-house team can construct a set of photorealistic images that accurately
represent a space before construction starts.
This creates perfect marketing collateral to help build interest and
Location, scale and context impose no restrictions as we work
with developers to show the visual impact of a space and its surroundings with
detailed architecture and textures. Multiple
shots of a spaces can be taken, be it day or night, exterior or interior to
give a true feel of a development.
Our vast library of materials makes transforming an ordinary
space into an environment of carefully considered interior design at the simple
click of the mouse. The CGI artists add in slight
imperfections to ensure our CGI images truly are representative of reality from
textured copper to the lustre of marble.
Another advantage of CGI is the animation walk-through
service we offer. This is great to help
prospective buyers understand the scale of a plot and recognise how the space
will work for them. Simply get in touch with the team at
Set Visions to see how our services can help bring your development to

year we have been working with blue shades through a range of products and
trends, it’s safe to say we know how to take that colour tone in many
directions. Opting for a darker shade in a space adds drama and impact,
but with the right lighting it can also be made to feel warm and cosy.
Keep it fresh
Mix and match cabinets is another way to keep the look fresh
and not go down the moody hues look. Copper key features such as tap
design works with this colour.
Don’t want to darken a room too much? The same effect can be
achieved by painting halfway up a wall as in this living room. You can still
get the impact whilst keeping it fresh.
Take it moody
Dark blues work particularly well in classic, panelled
interiors such as period properties with grand fireplaces and dramatic, high
ceilings. This space can carry colour!
The kitchen (above) has dramatic, dusky blue cupboards which
are on-trend this year. We’ve designed several sets for deep blue kitchens so
keep an eye out. You can either go deep and moody, or add bold colour to offset

creative team of art directors, videographers and CGI animators work together
across multiple disciplines to produce informative and instructional videos
suitable for web, instore and social media.
This latest animation had to answer two specific briefs. The first was
to work with and without sound to be an informative selling tool to be shown in
store to trade and public. The second use is social media, illustrating brand
style with instructional use. Our project manager worked closely with the
client to present the story board, gain product knowledge and coordinate Set
Vision’s in-house team.
Our Motion graphic designs are crucial to momentum and timing of this
informative video - key straplines are strategically timed illustrating primary
benefits of the product. The animated CGI video was designed to be easily
adapted. By updating the product and key strap lines to fit similar items in
the product line we have created a cost-effective solution for our client.
