Architectural Visualisations

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 sell off-plan.

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.

Trending- Deep Inky Blues

This 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 the blue.

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. 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.

Signature Brand Interior Design

Our inhouse stylists are always keen to establish trend lead styling on any project. With the recent launch of a new glass splashbacks range our stylists were challenged to design images that sit within Laura Ashley’s signature brand look that have a tangible lifestyle feel.

Each splashback image had to sit within specific style houses that appeal to their key core customers. Our team of CGI artists worked closely with our designers to create photorealistic textures and props such as rustic exposed brickwork, even CGI bread! Our designs were critiqued and signed off by Laura Ashley ensuring our images hit the creative lifestyle brief.
