Neff Case Study – Multiplatform Content Creators

Here at Set Visions, we offer cross platform content for targeted marketing campaigns. Our global client Neff, an international kitchen appliance brand, use our content to inspire and educate potential UK customers, helping to increase their brand’s awareness and generate sales.

The Brief

The set design was carefully considered for this project. Our team created three kitchen layouts that incorporated Neff’s cooking, cooling and washing appliances. Our Head of Creative also lead the interior design and unique cooking stories, making sure the personality behind the iconic brand could be interpreted and understood by the UK market.

As our client was keen to have as much original content as possible, we worked with their marketing department to deliver main images alongside cameos, which gave a more candid feel to the photography style. By updating the images with product variations, we were able to deliver multiple product shots that are in situ and relatable, avoiding the need of sterile white product cut outs.

Following the stills, we then animated the 3D files to produce customer facing videos. These informative shorts gave hidden information about their products and highlighted the ease of use. Each video is based on the series of lifestyle images we created in 3Ds Max and gives our client the ability to advertise their customer base on multiple platforms with a consistent brand message.

The creation of a microsite is a great marketing strategy for the brand. They’re good for search engines and SEO and they can focus on a specific range or brand message. Ecommerce is a competitive place and savvy shoppers know how to research and compare products online before making their purchase. This is why multi-platform content educates, inspires and more importantly, builds shoppers confidence in the brand.

Seasonal Campaign Content

There’s nothing like our favorite brands battling it out for the number one campaign spot. Well crafted content gets us in the festive mood, often with an emotive overtone to melt anyone’s heart.

This year, our Head of Creative worked with the Senior CGI team to create our very own seasonal renders, specifically designed for a social campaign. The images encapsulate a calm and refined yuletide look with a subtle nod to the party trend.

Cosy marketing content

Creating concepts with trend awareness is at the heart of our Styling team’s work. Here at Set Visions we know the value of understanding brand and the design process behind products. Our in-house photography team, Capture, worked with our client to produce a bank of trend led images that has plenty of social media friendly touch points. The result is our client has relevant and engaging content that attracts and retains their online audience.

The volume of lifestyle imagery created within a two day studio shoot is enough for our customer to use in their marketing campaign, avoiding dull repetition of content. Our team took advantage of the time by photographing the product and model in a relaxed candid style. This allows our client, Woolroom to use the images as touch point conversations with their customers. Woolroom can educate and inspire potential leads, taking them one step closer to their purchasing decision.

Not to forget Yogi’s input! By using a dog to support their imagery alongside the model, Yogi evokes emotion and relatability, a reaction that links back to the brand. This strategy is part of the service from the Set Visions team, who value dog cuddles as much as brand strategy.

Roku, the global streaming platform, is launching America’s top selling TV to the UK in conjunction with our CGI client, Hisense, who are the 4th largest TV company in the world. By expanding their presence in Europe and launching in the UK Hisense needs high quality promotional material that’s adaptable to any platform.

Set Visions was commissioned to create the promotional video highlighting the form and function of the product.By using CG animation our client took advantage of their existing assets, adapting their existing material to create new and cost-effective content. As a long-standing client of ours, the Hisense video was created efficiently and to brand guidelines.

With the animation produced by our Motion team being personally requested by the SEO to be shown at the Roku keynote speech, our team quickly provided the specially edited version in the specific large scale output.

Instagrammable Imagery

Digital marketing is a competitive field, so stand out of the crowd with Set Visions’ Pinterest worthy imagery. As consumers are increasingly researching on their smartphones for their next big ticket purchase it’s important that your marketing content works on this channel.

A recent project commissioned to our CGI team had us produce a number of product focused shots, set in achievable spaces with eye catching interior design-a service included as standard on our projects. These shots are perfect for mobile marketing platforms such as Pinterest and Instagram, as the cameos are product focused with a lifestyle feel that create great talking points with your followers.

Mobile marketing is often a component of a multi-channel campaign that allows you to get closer to consumers. Large scale room sets don’t always translate to some social media platforms as the detail is often downsized. Impactful and stylish imagery is perfect marketing content and is the best way to build your followers on social media.

To talk though your mobile marketing content call the studio on 01274610600 or contact the team to see how we can work with you to produce your own instagrammable imagery.

Create A Conversation With Your Audience

Set Visions inhouse photography team, Capture, produce enticing food photography with the same flair and creative direction as our electronic and FMCG imagery. Here’s a great case study highlighting our photography studio working alongside our CGI studio to deliver images for brochure and social media.

As Pix, our CGI service, and Capture are both under one roof we provided a cost-effective solution to Everhot’s tactile photographic brief. Our Head of Creative pitched the imagery to their core customer base whilst having an editorial look to land their brand in the glossy interior mag circuit.

As a creative content studio, we think about the bigger picture for our clients. We needed our images to not only inform and educate the consumer about the product - we also wanted them to connect emotionally, especially for social media. Firstly, we created a stylist lead bank of cost effective computer generated imagery. We then produced a series of photography shots that support the CG story with recipe inspired images that tie in with the series of renders.

The set of images are pitched to the home cook who has a creative flair, with the interior design and recipes being achievable and relatable. Our Head of Creative was the linchpin to make sure the art direction was consistent across both services. To keep costs down we kept to table top photography produced by our inhouse photo team and food stylist.

The images are great content for social media. They allow the brand to cultivate a community and encourage discussion amongst followers about their product and recipes, where people with similar lifestyles share interests through brand touch points. Building customer engagement and loyalty is a great strategy for a product that is a once in a lifetime investment.

To discuss brand strategy and customer engagement just contact the studio for an informal discussion with our team to see how our services can help connect your product to potential audiences.
