The focus of our work is making extremely good looking CGI and really useful Interactive solutions for large and small clients. Each project is treated equally with the goal of producing relevant and original work that is valuable and useful to our clients.

We firmly believe that good design is the cornerstone of good image making and ensure that this is element is fundamental to each project we take on. Over the years we have built up a tremendously talented team, most of whom have a strong design background, and this foundation means we can successfully take on a variety of project types spanning CGI, visualization, Interior and exterior design and apps. We are most comfortable sat between the converging areas of cutting edge technology and art.

Matt Grey & Timber Kitchen

October 16, 2020 / in 3dsmax, Corona Renderer, Photoshop / by Richard Benson

We find that kitchens (and other interiors) with darker colour palettes often require a slightly more complex CG lighting setup. Here’s one of our recent kitchens for a US client, where the artists have kept the lighting looking natural and bright with lighter wall finishes and a high beamed ceiling.

We used 3D Studio Max and rendered with Corona Renderer here, with composition and colour grades in Fusion Studio 16 and additional tweaks and adjustments in Photoshop.
