Portfolio update: Commercial office reception
This week’s update features a recently-completed pitch scheme for the redesign of an office reception. Two concepts were prepared, this being the second, and used a broadly similar palette with differences coming from the arrangement of furniture and the design of the reception desk as well as the proportions of materials used in relation to one another and the alternative presentation. Clearly, both schemes aimed for a truly opulent look and feel and achieved this by using dark stained ...Read More →
Portfolio update: Dinner, part two
A few weeks ago Click3D posted an image that was used to illustrate the design intention for a proposed restaurant within an out-of-town shopping development; today we see the second shot created for that project. Taken from the opposite corner, this image serves to drive home that although the palette is restrained it is not without opulence, as inferred by the rich timber, lustrous metal and rich tile detailing; the uplighting around the ‘bulge’ also adds visual interest and ...Read More →
Portfolio update: North Wingfield
As a follow-up to the last blog and portfolio entry which detailed one of Click3D’s new clients, here is one of the marketing shots taken from that project. As the original post mentioned, being the first to work with the client on a new technique enables you to put in place the methodology of how you work with no outside influence; at the same time it gives you a fantastic opportunity to create what amounts to a ‘house style’ ...Read More →
Portfolio update: Out for dinner
A (fairly – one does have to give the client an opportunity to present to their client before showing the rest of the world!) new image for Click3D’s portfolio of architectural visualisation today, this one being the first of two illustrations developed to show the proposed interior of a high-end high street restaurant chain. Based within a double-height shell with a mezzanine level this commission was required to illustrate opulent finishes within a fairly restrained colour palette, therefore much timber ...Read More →
Please bear with us…
You may have noticed that the Click3D website is changing ever so slightly and also a few things are in need of attention, perhaps most noticeably the portfolio where some pages are running out of alignment and a link to Twitter is missing. This is because a few background tweaks are being made and the developer of the site has moved on to pastures new so we are waiting on the new affiliate company to return with some analysis and ...Read More →
Click3D endorsed again!
It is with great pride that Click3D has once again received a recommendation for its services, this time from Andrew Witcomb of Witcomb Project Management, a company specialising in interior design for the leisure industry and one which Click3D has worked with many times in the past, delivering several successful schemes encompassing both architectural visualisation and signage, some of which feature in the portfolio pages. Andrew’s recommendation is below:
“Stuart has produced a great deal of incredible visualisation and ...Read More →
Stop! Start! Continue!
It’s been quite busy here of late hence the lack of blog and portfolio updates, although that’s no bad thing I suppose. Anyway, quite a few projects on the go, near completion or delivered so that’s good. First up was a project to illustrate a demolition company’s methodology which presents a challenge both in terms of stylistic requirements and also in general, the latter because as architectural visualisers we all make models of things that are going up, not coming ...Read More →
Portfolio update: Kitchen remodelling
Today we have a new addition to the portfolio, namely a kitchen remodelling project. Click3D was commissioned to provide views of this space after the property owner secured planning permission to extend his property which enabled him to completely remodel the existing interior space, specifically swapping the position of the kitchen and family room. Working from hand-drawn plans and assorted sketches Click3D delivered two views for this project – the one you see in this update and another taken ...Read More →
It’s been a while!
Greetings from the all-new Click3D bunker! – As the title of this blog entry suggests, it has been a while (and then some) since Click3D’s last entry on this here blog. The reasons for this are many and mainly work-related – working in-house for clients old and new plus remote commissions and a move to West Sussex all mean that time has been at a premium. There’s also the small and insignificant matter of downloading some updates for the site ...Read More →
Educating the Client
So, a more sober blog posting today, this specifically to do with how to inform the client of the necessities and processes involved with any kind of architectural visualisation project.
Above and beyond managing expectation, whereby the client is told that in order to achieve the desired result a certain amount of time is required, clearly it is important to be as transparent as possible in terms of acquiring information, when needs to be submitted by and milestones. However, if the ...Read More →
