A recent project completed for one of our long-standing clients saw our Project Management team seamlessly coordinate the logistics of our CGI team, Interior stylists, Models, Photographic studio team and post production. The result is a set of 14 images that are perfect for brochure and social media content.
Our stylist worked directly with Fabric Box marketing team to understand the design concepts behind their fabric designs and product range. Together they designed the unique environments with our team making sure the interior design trends, the CG architectural detailing and propping supported their product; ensuring the focus is on the contemporary blind designs.
The second phase of the project was to select and photograph models in our in-house photographic studio. These were then edited together by our post production specialists, resulting in ultra-real CGI images. Shooting models interacting with CGI props can be a technical challenge. As our production team strive for photoreal images they ensured the technique was perfected!
These images are perfect for marketing content, adding more value to our client who can use the renders for brochure, online and social media. Our clients have also ‘future proofed’ their shots by using CGI our CG artists can revisit at any time easily updating the images when the latest product ranges are released passing the saving back to our clients.
For more information on how we can furfure proofing your marketing contact Set Visions or check out our CGI portfolio.

Our experienced CGI Project Mangers work with agencies, marketing teams and product managers delivering photorealistic renders on time, to brief and to budget. Approached by a Manchester agency our CG team were asked to produce a set of bespoke kitchen designs that showcased the new range cookers for Stoves.
The key brief to Set Visions creative team was realism, natural lighting, lifestyle and product focus. Shoot The Moon wanted our images to deliver their concept and illustrate the lifestyle the Stoves products offers. Our CGI had to sit alongside Shoot The Moon’s in-house studio photography, supporting the marketing strategy they specifically designed.
The above images were created specifically for the web, designed to be used as a split screen. These were secondary shots, taken in the same scene as the main images. CGI is easily adaptable - meaning product changes or camera angles can be addressed at any point, saving time and money on set build compared to traditional photography.
A cost-effective benefit for this project was having the manufacturing CAD files provided. This eliminated our modelling costs and saved the supplier the hefty delivery of two large range cookers. All our supplied 3D files are treated very sensitively, with an NDA available for all our clients.
It’s fantastic to see the images used seamlessly with Shoot The Moon’s foodie photography highlighting CGI has great advantages, with traditional photography still being essential to the industry. For an informal chat to see how our team can support your creative content goals just get in touch!

Video content is vital
to engage with online customers. Video is a great channel to explain unique
tech and design features that aren’t necessarily common knowledge or visible. Design
features are often the tipping point for a customer to click the ‘Buy Now’
button, lifting your product above the competition. The challenge for our
in-house team is to make the content both engaging and informative.
Our video department, Motion, strategically plan every
animation to keep videos short and educational whilst informing the customer of
all the benefits in one place. This eliminates the need for further information
searching, retaining the viewer’s attention and more importantly their
A recent project has seen us complete a range of such CGI
animations that does just that for Hisense, simply explaining their high-tech fridges
and TV’s in a way the customer can relate to. These CG videos show that not all
fridges are made equal - therefore giving the customer a more informed choice
and confidence in the brand and product.
