Ecommerce Product Videos

Showcasing brand videos on any platform is a great way to build brand awareness and increase engagement. Product videos are particularly beneficial to consumers when researching and comparing products.

A recent project has seen our video production team support the launch of HiSense’s higher priced TVs into a competitive market. We produced a series of video shorts that offer clear and a comprehensives explanation of the product in an aspirational and relatable environment.

Our team led the art direction for the project, creating detailed concept proposals to make sure the key demographic and target audience was addressed. The skilled CGI Animation team translated the concept, producing photorealistic CG animations that were edited in house.

This eye-catching content is now part of HiSense’s collective marketing campaign, featuring on YouTube and major retail websites.

Get The Look: Inspirational Entrance

With 2021 ahead of us, why not take the opportunity to get through that DIY ‘to do’ list or even redecorate a space! With 2021 ahead of us, An area of the home that often gets overlooked is the hallway, a strong colour palette with lots of foliage and accessories can make the space look considered and welcoming.

Make sure the space is functional with plenty of hooks for coats and bags to avoid it becoming a dumping ground. A half-painted wall is a clever design choice, it keeps the space light and airy whilst preventing the lower half getting grubby from pets shaking off the rain or kids coming through in muddy sports kits.

Seasons Greetings

It goes without saying 2020 has been a roller coaster year.

As the set Visions team are winding down we’re taking some time to reflect on the highs and lows this year has brought. It’s definitely been a mixed bag of emotions, but I’m happy to say we’re ending the year on a positive note; new client wins and a planned expansion sees our CGI team collaborating with a global advertising agency.

We have seen a dramatic increase in enquiries for interactive solutions as brands look for new and meaningful ways to engage with customers. As we’re seeing an uplift in our AR projects, we predict this trend will only grow in strength next year.

We’re ever thankful for our team’s on-going support. By keeping our Photography Studio doors open we have delivered essential packaging shots for our ecommerce clients in time for Christmas.

A big thank you goes to our CGI team who have balanced remote working alongside full time childcare.

With their dedication, we can in turn, support and strengthen your business in 2021.

Commercial set designs

Being able to create realistic and relatable spaces is key to successful set design. One of our most recent projects can be seen in Wickes’ latest instalment of their ‘Cure Housebarrassment’ advertising campaign.

As we already produce the visual content for their kitchen brochures, we were able to deliver consistency across print, web and TV, aiding their omnichannel marketing campaign.

Set design is just one of the creative services our agency offers. With an inhouse team of Art Directors, Stylist and Creative Producers we create eye catching marketing content.

We also offer a TV ad service capable of producing 4k animations and have the ability to provide location filming with a production team to take care of the Clearcast process.

Virtual tours made simple

Set Visions 360 AR tours are a simple way for your customers to view your product in a virtual showroom without the concerns of social distancing.

Get The Look - Bohemian Earth Tones

The bohemian look is created by combining patterns and textures from around the world to create an effortless yet curated look. The earth tones are colours rooted in nature and used together they can create a calming environment that is on-trend for 2020.

You can achieve this look in your own home by layering up throws and pillows and creating your own macramé or even hanging rugs on the walls.

The bedroom our creatives designed shown below encapsulates the trend perfectly.

The tufted rug, cushion and wall hanging add texture to the space and the warming shades of terracotta and pink work in harmony with the natural wooden floor and concrete coloured walls to create a calming space.

- Use a calming palette of earth tones
