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 →
Portfolio update: Heathrow T2
It’s been a busy few weeks in Click3D-world so the lack of portfolio updates (or updates at all, for that matter) probably isn’t all that surprising. To remedy that, added to the portfolio today is one of three images created for a pitch presentation for a luxury bar in Heathrow’s Terminal Two.
Whereas most architectural visualisation projects rely on or are guided by CAD submissions and specific material details, this was notable for their absence, apart from a floorplan and a ...Read More →
Photoshop visualisation….on a Mac!
So, it’s clearly been quiet on the count of blog updates from Click3D for the last few weeks and there’s good reason for that (well, if we’re honest with each other, ways and means could be found around it but let’s not dilute the idea of heroic self-sacrifice for now…), that being working in-house on some illustrations for an Italian bag and accessory company with a workflow which required a different approach from the usual methodology.
Key to this project was ...Read More →
Causes for celebration
So, two years ago today Click3D opened its doors (well, picked up the phone and started making calls, but that doesn’t sound anywhere near as grand) and entered the big, bad world of architectural visualisation. Naturally there have been good times, even better times, bad times and some a fair bit worse than that but we carry on regardless, bloodied if unbowed, and so here’s to the next two years and two beyond that, too.
Since and in between the last ...Read More →
