When Beauty Box wanted to see the look of different materials and colours for the their cosmetics and jewellery cases I was able to help.  3D modelling creates accurate and photoreal images of the final product with the ability to quickly change surfaces and materials without the need for time consuming and expensive mock ups.

Using BB’s drawings and sketches I was able to build the product models at a very low cost and provide a range of surface materials and colours such as translucent perspex, black plastic and a range of fitment materials – gold, silver, brushed chrome etc.”

Beauty Box were then able to quickly put together costings and a business plan together for investors.

Case Study
Client: Regensys

Application: 3D Architectural Visualisation

One of those occasions when an out of the blue phonecall gives a warm glow. SEO does actually work!

A firm of design and construction engineers found me through a web search and looking for help with a development project to take place on the Somerset Levels. They had forthcoming planning and a public meetings approaching where the proposals would be put forward for examination and were acutely aware of the importance of communicating their ideas clearly the first time. Key, therefore, to present in a clear unequivocal way that eliminates misunderstanding and presents the project in its best light.

The project comprised of the construction of an Anaerobic Digester plant and because of its location considerable effort had been put in to minimising the impact it would have on the surrounding area. I was asked to provide costs for a 3D visualisation model of the plant to include an animated fly round and 3D fly through together with photo montaged high resolution images showing the plant blended into photographs of the surrounding area.

The resultant digital media could then be purposed as video display presenters, large format graphic panels for exhibition, as well as Powerpoint presentations, leaflets and proposal documents.

Having successfully pitched for the work I began developing the model from the 2D plans and schematics. Communicating daily with the client on detailing and technical specifications and finally delivering a range of output formats in good time for the client’s meetings.

The Client was delighted with the results commenting that although the public  meetings were always going to be challenging they felt much more confident in presenting the case and being able to move forward with the application process.

Bollywood Spice the highly successful Indian and Nepalese restaurant and take away based in Warmley, Bristol is on the move to bigger premises.  Situated in Longwell Green The Barrs Court Inn once part of the the Barr’s Court Estate is a magnificent stone built barn with almost cathedral like proportions.  The Estate, once owned by the Newton family has now disappeared under the ring road, new housing estates and the Aspects Leisure Centre. The barn is I believe the only surviving reminder and was converted to a pub in the eighties.

The pub, once renowned for it restaurant and guaranteed to be choc a bloc on a Saturday night, has become rather tired but now destined for a new lease of life as a multicultural restaurant and takeaway.  Getting into conversation with the Bollywood’s owners whilst enjoying some of their brilliant cuisine;  it turned out that they were looking for some way to see how the grade II listed building could be adapted, and how much change they could effect.  We agreed that I would  create a virtual model of the building and provide a range of 3D visuals showing the possible options. The visuals could then be put before the authorities and builders to assess what could be acceptable to planning and within the available budgets.

Restaurant owner Naz Abdul was delighted with the results, as he explained, “it was difficult for me to visualise how we could turn the barn, a huge open space, into a cosy restaurant.  Applause were able to provide accurate visuals from any angle within the building, change the lighting, fabrics and fittings till we could see just the effect we were looking for.  We were then able to supply planners and builders with a clear understandable picture of how we wanted the interior to look and avoid expensive mistakes.

We are also able to add value by using the graphics in our planned online and print marketing.  Applause are also currently working with us to create new branding, website and marketing materials.  This is a really exciting project and we are looking forward to a grand opening shortly.
