It's great to finally be up and running, and you may wonder what this new website is all about,
If you are familiar with my Illustration and Sculpture work under Aberdeen Art, you will know that I've always had a bit o a passion for 3D design and visualisation- all the way back to studying architecture at university! The handmade style of work I undertake at Aberdeen Art has allowed me to create lots of exciting and fun pieces from local building illustrations to cityscape sculptures and rusted stag's heads, and it's never something I would give up as working with the hands has always been a passion of mine, and in a strange way even helps me relive stress and relax!
Following on from the recent Northern Star Business Awards which I had the pleasure of designing for the Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce which was probably the most commercial order I had taken on up until then, in speaking to local people about what they do, and learning more about the local businesses in Aberdeen, I realised that there is a big demand from the commercial side for artists and creative people, and this really opened my eyes. It's not something I would have thought a few years, or even months ago! Something in my mind must have always thought that in business there is less room for this kind of thing, but maybe I was wrong...
Thinking back to my days at school when I first began playing around with 3D Computer Graphics and worked on a project to show an animation of a revitalised Union Terrace Gardens (if only I knew!), I realised that working with computer graphics would afford so much more possibilities, and in terms of what commercial clients might be looking for, be better for them in saving time and money, and allowing amazing flexibility and versatility in what can be done.
Knowing friends and family who work in oil and gas, and engineering, and having myself worked in architecture, I know how crucial it can be to convey the right ideas clearly and accurately, and money can literally be lost by failing to convey things in the right way- whether this is to co-workers, clients, sales teams, at exhibitions and even in the office day to day- it all adds up, and that's where I hope to help!
So what am I providing?
In a nutshell, I'm offering 3D graphics, which itself can mean lots of things to different people. Basically, some of the actual services, which I'll break down in a future post, include:
Full range from Conceptual to Highly realistic
Orthographic and Perspective views
Accurate textures and materials
3D Models to scale
Show a building development in phases
Show how somethings is assembled
Text and information overlays
Dissassemble / explode items
Walk through your proposal
Show a product in operation
Marketing / Presentation films
So whether you are working in oil and gas, engineering, architecture, product development, property, construction, advertising or anything at all where you need to see your vision brought into reality, and want to show it off in the best light- I hope I can be of help
Thanks a lot for stopping by, and stay tuned for lots more exciting projects and updates!
