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.

A long-standing client recently approached the Pix team to join forces for a high-status pitch.
merchandise_caps_visual_MUFC

Our creative CGI department worked alongside Cardinal to create high quality visuals for the Manchester United store refit. The high standard visuals gave the national company a strong portfolio to present, establishing a competitive edge for the firm.

CGI is a great tool to test and develop product without the added expense of singular manufacture. Combinations are limitless testing material selection, product design and aesthetic details. Our in house designers developed the spatial design factoring in multi-use point of sale, architectural restrictions and how the space would visually look from a distance.

Trending-Island: the place to be seen in 2017

black_marble_island_shaker_kitchen

Statement islands will feature heavily in 2017, this is supported by worktop technologies and the wide array of new worktop finishes entering the market. Mixing is the name of the game: texture, thickness, height and colour - anything goes. Open storage features are also a must in your island design, stretch your creativity but keep it practical.

Use product creatively

kitchen_island_unusual

A split level island is a clever way to reduce the appearance of bulk without reducing worktop space. It’s also a nice way of softening the transition from kitchen to a dining/living space.

Get creative with lighting and give your island that flouting feeling, here we’ve paired it with a universal sliding doors system that adds real drama as well as creative display.


Contrast finishes

mixed_facia_kitchen

Mixing Worktop textures create a real statement contrasting not only finishes but thinness too, complimenting display features and splashbacks both play a big part in this look.

Make a feature with contrasting kitchen fascias, you need to be bold to make a statement it’s not the time to play safe…sometime more is more!
