Fresh New Year. Fresh CGI Portfolio

2017 was a fantastic year for Pix. Our talented in-house team delivered hundreds of stylish visual solutions for our clients, and we’re incredibly proud of the results. Here's a sneak peek of some of our favourite CG imagery covering kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms.

From commercial scenes, to international environments and product shots our updated portfolio demonstrates our adaptive path in each project. Tricky deadlines and challenging briefs excite our team, and our flexible cost saving approach to CGI imagery is always the number one priority.

The team would like to say a BIG Thank You to all our clients for the opportunity to work with you, old and new. With a packed production schedule ready to go we can’t wait to get started on 2018’s creations.

Creative product renders

Do you need creative images of your product but don’t have physical samples? Set Visions CGI is the answer.

creative_cgi_product_office _chairs

One of our long standing CGI clients recently challenged our Pix department to create striking concept renders that sit within their brand guidelines.

The product designs have very precise technical specifications which our 3D modelling team were able to recreate perfectly in CGI. In this case physical samples of the product were unavailable so the team modelled from technical drawings and used specific fabrics from our vast library.

Another benefit of CGI for this project is the ability to update a fabric or finish with the click of a button, allowing us to create numerous iterations without the added expense of manufacture and shipping.

The images support Bluespot’s Seating Collection targeted marketing campaign and are successfully being used across print and media platforms.

Sophisticated muted metallic mix

marble lamps copper metallic floor staning table.

This trending look is all about the muted metallic, mixing in a calm sophisticated way. Last year, strong, bold copper took the high street by storm, but this year we’ll see blush, muted copper mixing with calming golds. This look is all about mixing metallics and harmoniously integrating with the interior design as trend accent.

Mixing metallics as a focal point

Coper bath blush pink tiles grey kitchen

Every room needs a focal point and within the bathroom which has to be the statement bath. Why not get ahead of the rest with a brushed copper or gold bathtub. Offset it with a muted blush pink or grey colour scheme to create a calming look.

Here is an example of the overall trend, with blush pinks and light grey walls adding a softer approach to golds and copper propping. Here mixing metallics in a subtle way can be seen with the tile choice complementing the metallic propping.


Metallic accent in the home

Within kitchens it’s not just the accessories which hint metallics. The big trend coming through uses metallic splashbacks which we will see more of in 2017. It’s a bold look we’ve seen in bespoke kitchens, but look out for some new year contenders who are getting in on the action with more affordable versions!

If large statement metallics are too much for your sense of style why not try simple accessories of the mixed muted metallic trend? A subtle way to add metallics to your home is by adding metals to parts of the room always left until last for decorating, such as curtain poles. See how these muted metals work together in complementary tones, work these across the home.

CGI has never looked so real!

Pix can also offer tremendous logistical benefits over traditional photography, and using techniques we’ve honed over the years, we deliver consistent quality and speed at the most competitive rates. Take a look at our all new CGI website to see some of our latest work - prepare to be amazed!

‘Hygge’ Home: the Danish art of living cosily

Main image
As the nation falls in love with the Danish ‘Hygge’ home movement - if you have not heard of it yet well you will now - after all, Denmark was voted one of the happiest places to live, and with this philosophy in life we totally agree.

In essence ‘Hygge’ means creating a cosy, homely, warm atmosphere whilst enjoying the good things in life with good people around you. Sit back and take in our trending guide whilst enjoying a warming cup of tea, the perfect Scandinavian way.


Layering texturesMiddle image

As the nights close in for these wintry months it’s time to cozy up in thick, cable knit throws, add plenty of rustic charm with baskets to store and accessorize - perfect for the cozy, rustic look.

Plenty of candles should adorn your ‘Hygge’ home, creating a warm friendly feel. Lanterns are perfect, style them up in sizes to create depth. Mix woods and chromes to get a modern/rustic feel.

Social styleBottom image
The living room is a social space that welcomes the family and friends in for an evening of relaxation and quality times. It’s key to echo that friendly feel with layered up cushions and throws for guests to snuggle up on the sofa. Create a welcoming space with scented candles and a good selection of coffee table books.

After an evening spent enjoying simple life pleasures in your beautiful home, why not take a calming retreat to your bedroom? Making this space ease you in to rest with its deep atmospheric walls and subtle choice in lighting will create a perfect space to snuggle up and read a book.

Understanding the bigger picture

We understand the importance of customer trust and we understand products by building relationships with clients. The kitchen facia is always at the forefront of any kitchen design. Our creative team construct the image using trend research, architectural references and realistic set design. They produce an entire story based around the facia and develop customer personas to ensure your target market can relate to the imagery on a social, economic or geographical level. Engaging with your customer through true photorealistic imagery will sway the purchase decision. Detail shots and cameos are perfect to illustrate the craftsmanship of your product design.

Our set design and prop choices are carefully considered with an extensive library to choose from, creating a bespoke look is easy. Detailed mood boards are created directing the design, trend and art direction. We relish the small details to make the bigger picture.

To get us started we just require a facia sample or drawings and a colour swatch.

Supplier costs are dramatically reduced as production is no longer delayed waiting for expensive samples to be imported. The impact on the environment is minimal as wastage is slashed which cannot be said for traditional set build and deconstruction.

The Set Visions CGI team is made up of a great pool of talent from trained studio photographers, interior design trend spotters to self-taught CGI masters. Our combined history and industry knowledge is key to the consistency and precision of our renders.
