Commercial Interior Visualisations

Set Visions commercial renders provide our clients with a quick and easy way to visualise their product in large scale environments. CGI room sets save time on location scouting, expensive hire fees and coordinating a crew of freelancers.

We regularly work with architects, property developers and product designers producing precise visualisations for marketing and development pitches.

Our room set renders can be taken one step further, transforming a 3D render into an interactive 360-degree space, giving the user a fuller understanding of a property layout from the comfort of their device.

Welcome to the family!

The last year has been a challenge for everyone, with Set Visions being no exception.

Thankfully we’ve managed to maintain a full order book, seeing an increase in demand for AR and interactive online content. Set Visions are pleased to introduce our two new Senior members of the CGI team who will help manage our growing production demands.

Owen has a background in interactive design, leading his own team of developers and CG artists.

Kyle’s creative experience in photorealism is already proving an asset to our client by taking the creative lead in one of our newest accounts.

As a company Set Visions have been very fortunate to maintain and expand our CGI production team.

With a positive outlook for the rest of the year we are looking forward to delivering even more creative content for our clients!

Get The Look: Inspirational entrance

With 2021 ahead of us, why not take the opportunity to get through that DIY ‘to do’ list or even redecorate a space! With 2021 ahead of us, An area of the home that often gets overlooked is the hallway, a strong colour palette with lots of foliage and accessories can make the space look considered and welcoming.

Make sure the space is functional with plenty of hooks for coats and bags to avoid it becoming a dumping ground. A half-painted wall is a clever design choice, it keeps the space light and airy whilst preventing the lower half getting grubby from pets shaking off the rain or kids coming through in muddy sports kits.

Business As Usual

New year, new lockdown but it's #businessasusual for Set Visions. As a technology-based company, our CGI production team is working remotely allowing us to keep delivering our CG, animation and AR projects.

Some of our supportive staff are also manning the studio, with our doors open for quick photography turn around jobs from packaging to 360 cutouts. This flexible service can sustain the change in the market, with the nation side-stepping the highstreet in favour of online shopping. Home appliances and decorative accessories are ideal content for ecommerce quick wins.

We’d also like to thank our loyal staff that have been so considerate towards their colleagues and our company through these fluctuating times. With their dedication, we can in turn, support and strengthen your business in this time of uncertainty.

Freelance CGI artists required

Due to a planned expansion, the Set Visions production team are opening their books to expand their freelance network.

We have a unique brand of photorealistic CGI. We combine traditional photography techniques with the latest CGI technologies to create the most realistic alternative to traditional photography in the marketplace. Our client list ranges from blue chip companies to independent retailers and global marketing agencies, not one brief is the same!

We expect our full team to have a creative flair, a real interest in architecture, interiors, photography, video, and design. Otherwise, we are not the right agency for you.

Experience in 3ds Max and V-Ray is essential, knowledge in Unreal Engine and AR optimisation would be beneficial. Remote workers are welcome, along with those who would like to be on site. You will be working as part of a team so good communication and the ability to think on your feet is essential.

We are looking for a mixture of Senior CG artists or those just starting out from University, with the possibility of short- and long-term contracts being available further down the line.

For more information on Set Visions check out our website pix.setvisions.co.uk and setvisions.co.uk.

If you are interested, please send a short introduction and a portfolio of work to jobs@setvisions.co.uk and we will be in touch if we feel your skill set matches our requirements.

Seasons Greetings

It goes without saying 2020 has been a roller coaster year.

As the set Visions team are winding down we’re taking some time to reflect on the highs and lows this year has brought. It’s definitely been a mixed bag of emotions, but I’m happy to say we’re ending the year on a positive note; new client wins and a planned expansion sees our CGI team collaborating with a global advertising agency.

We have seen a dramatic increase in enquiries for interactive solutions as brands look for new and meaningful ways to engage with customers. As we’re seeing an uplift in our AR projects, we predict this trend will only grow in strength next year.

We’re ever thankful for our team’s on-going support. By keeping our Photography Studio doors open we have delivered essential packaging shots for our ecommerce clients in time for Christmas.

A big thank you goes to our CGI team who have balanced remote working alongside full time childcare.

With their dedication, we can in turn, support and strengthen your business in 2021.

Get The Look - Bohemian Earth Tones

The bohemian look is created by combining patterns and textures from around the world to create an effortless yet curated look. The earth tones are colours rooted in nature and used together they can create a calming environment that is on-trend for 2020.

You can achieve this look in your own home by layering up throws and pillows and creating your own macramé or even hanging rugs on the walls.

The bedroom our creatives designed shown below encapsulates the trend perfectly.

The tufted rug, cushion and wall hanging add texture to the space and the warming shades of terracotta and pink work in harmony with the natural wooden floor and concrete coloured walls to create a calming space.

Interior design trend mood board

How to style up this look.

- Use a calming palette of earth tones
- Stick to natural materials like wool, wood and leather
- Layer up textiles that add texture
- Hang pieces on the walls to add interest

The New Normal

The past few months has been a challenging time for most people and businesses. Here at Set Visions we have been navigating through the changes brought about by remote working and social distancing, and we are pleased to say that due to their hard work and determination, our team have taken the changes in their stride with little or no loss to productivity.

Many have had the additional obstacle of juggling childcare or home teaching while still trying to maintain an eight-hour working day! Despite this, we have not seen a dip in moral or in the quality of their work and we are grateful to them all.

The Set Visions CGI team have been luckier than most having maintained a full order book throughout the lockdown period whilst picking up new clients. As some of our existing customers went into furlough, the CG team were asked to solve our customer’s photography problems caused by social distancing restrictions.

Our team have continued to work from home as normal creating CG environments and product imagery that would otherwise be unachievable through conventional photography methods.

With positive signs emerging we are keeping our mindset focused on what we are doing, ready to adapt and work with our clients to produce eye-catching content.

Get The Look - Tropical Spa Bathroom

With little chance of holidaying on a faraway tropical island this summer or even a trip to the spa, why not create the next best thing at home?

Here is a bathroom we recently designed for a radiator company to get you inspired!

It successfully combines the modern tropical trend with luxurious hints of brassware, a forest green wall and a mix of light and dark wood tones creating a rich backdrop. There is also plenty of open storage space which is useful for stacks of fresh towels and keeping your luxury cosmetics and beauty products to hand!
