How To Videos

Our ‘how to’ videos are a tool to inform and educate professional trades people. Engaging and informative instructions build brand trust and fitters more likely to recommend their product to the homeowner. As our client, Wickes sell direct to public it is important their product can easily be installed by professional fitters.

Here our team produced a fitting video to support the launch of a new product for the national kitchen retailer. The stripped back animation style allows the fitter to focus on the task in hand with cut aways and captions to break down the concept.

We worked closely with our client’s product design team to ensure each step is technically correct and true to life. The animation is designed to be paused at any time which allows each step to be reviewed.

The instructional video was created to sit alongside the launch of Wickes new handless concept range. Set Visions was integral in setting the art direction apart from their usual brand imagery; creating photorealistic renders of aspirational room set which reflects the sleek design concept that has a higher price point.

This content then created a base for the supporting brand focused video that was produced for social. To discuss your own multichannel approach, contact the studio to arrange a more in-depth conversation about your marketing campaign.


Here’s our top tips for clear and affective how-to videos

· Reduce overheads by dropping the traditional voice over

· Simplified visuals keep focus on the topic

· Motion graphics communicate essential information

· Music adds to your brand persona

· Keep the same template to build brand recognition

Pix | Neff Case Study – Multiplatform Content Creators

Here at Set Visions, we offer cross platform content for targeted marketing campaigns. Our global client Neff, an international kitchen appliance brand, use our content to inspire and educate potential UK customers, helping to increase their brand’s awareness and generate sales.

The Brief

The set design was carefully considered for this project. Our team created three kitchen layouts that incorporated Neff’s cooking, cooling and washing appliances. Our Head of Creative also lead the interior design and unique cooking stories, making sure the personality behind the iconic brand could be interpreted and understood by the UK market.

As our client was keen to have as much original content as possible, we worked with their marketing department to deliver main images alongside cameos, which gave a more candid feel to the photography style. By updating the images with product variations, we were able to deliver multiple product shots that are in situ and relatable, avoiding the need of sterile white product cut outs.

Following the stills, we then animated the 3D files to produce customer facing videos. These informative shorts gave hidden information about their products and highlighted the ease of use. Each video is based on the series of lifestyle images we created in 3Ds Max and gives our client the ability to advertise their customer base on multiple platforms with a consistent brand message.

The creation of a microsite is a great marketing strategy for the brand. They’re good for search engines and SEO and they can focus on a specific range or brand message. Ecommerce is a competitive place and savvy shoppers know how to research and compare products online before making their purchase. This is why multi-platform content educates, inspires and more importantly, builds shoppers confidence in the brand.

Set Visions was commissioned to create the promotional video highlighting the form and function of the product.By using CG animation our client took advantage of their existing assets, adapting their existing material to create new and cost-effective content. As a long-standing client of ours, the Hisense video was created efficiently and to brand guidelines.

World Cup Brand Exposure

Video has rapidly become the most effective way to sell your product online. By visually engaging with your current and potential customer base, you can build trust and communicate the values of your brand and key selling points of your product. Not only does video boost your Google rankings, it is encouraged on social media to be shared, gaining huge exposure to a new audience.

Hisense, one of our global clients, launched their product to sit alongside the sponsorship of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. The marketing campaign has seen their brand reach global audiences, with video being key to their marketing strategy.

By using video on their website to support the new product launch Hisense can easily communicate key product features and benefits whilst engaging with their customers for longer, leading product interest into product purchase.

Engage with your online customers

Video content is vital to engage with online customers. Video is a great channel to explain unique tech and design features that aren’t necessarily common knowledge or visible. Design features are often the tipping point for a customer to click the ‘Buy Now’ button, lifting your product above the competition. The challenge for our in-house team is to make the content both engaging and informative.

Our video department, Motion, strategically plan every animation to keep videos short and educational whilst informing the customer of all the benefits in one place. This eliminates the need for further information searching, retaining the viewer’s attention and more importantly their purchasing decision.

A recent project has seen us complete a range of such CGI animations that does just that for Hisense, simply explaining their high-tech fridges and TV’s in a way the customer can relate to. These CG videos show that not all fridges are made equal - therefore giving the customer a more informed choice and confidence in the brand and product.

The driving force behind CGI animation

Set Visions Motion department creates video content that sells. Our 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.

Engineered marketing content

Strong visual content is key to a successful marketing campaign. Whilst working with an international engineering company our art directors were challenged to take a piece of highly engineered product and visually illustrate the beauty of the product design.

As a visual content agency, our in house team took a multi discipline approach. The conceptual studio photography and the CGI animation tied in with the client’s brand identity. The brief was very open which our Art Directors relished! The combined result has given the company both video and image content for in house publications, branding material through to website and social media content.
