HUSK Living is a company that produces container-style garden office ‘pods’ to a high-spec finish. We were asked to produce 3D visualisations of their products, so that they could show potential customers what their pods would look like in real life.
The first step was to build a model out of the plans provided by HUSK Living, and populate it with furniture and decorations from their range. This gave us a base for our visualisations, and allowed us to test out different layouts for the pods before we started working on them in earnest. The second step was to create photorealistic renders of each pod, using photos taken by HUSK Living on location in Cornwall as reference material. We then adjusted the colours and materials used in our renders based on these photos, so that they would be true to life.
Our final step was to create a set of animated GIFs, showing how the pods would be assembled and disassembled. These were used by HUSK Living on their website and social media channels to promote the product and show off what it could do.

Cornwall has long been a destination for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, but recently it has become just as popular with people who want to be close to nature without being completely isolated from civilization.
Here’s a portfolio piece that I made using Photoshop, Blender and Illustrator to showcase some new developments in Bude, Cornwall
The brief was to create an image of the development which would be used in the marketing material for the area. I wanted to create something that was modern and yet still reflected the natural beauty of Cornwall.
I decided to make it look like a real-world illustration rather than a high-end photorealistic image because it would give the viewer something more interesting to look at. I wanted to create something that was visually appealing but also informative. The 3D modelling and rendering process took around 5 days and the post production about 2 days.
If you like this image and would like to see more of my work, please feel free to get in touch to discuss your requirements.
I was delighted to be asked again by Displayset – a well established, contemporary, design and build company in Bude , to help realise their vibrant and dynamic vision of a kitchen design for a potential client. It was requested that between 1 and 3 renders need to be rendered.
Renders were carefully planned using reference material provided by Displayset. I also used further image resources, to give me the inspiration required to follow the flow and style of their vision precisely. The modern styling combined with the wood textures was a lot of fun to produce.
As with any new project I like to learn and experiment with new techniques, allowing me to improve the final render and yield better customer feedback at the end of the project. In this particular project I decided to focus on the lighting. I decided to utilise image masks of the trees in the background of the render, this gave immediate realistic results by providing leaf shadows on the back walls of the image.
I am really pleased with the end result, especially with the use of the image masks and with how much that technique improved the visual effect of the final render.

I was approached by an anonymous client to produce a series of External Landscape CGI Visualisations for a location in Cornwall. The brief was to showcase the opening gateway to a modern house and display how it could look before development began.
Upon being given the blueprint/architectural measurements, I started modelling the basic shapes of the landscape. This included the positioning of the gate as well as the basic shape of the trees, hedges and stones/grass. As soon as the basic landscape was approved by the client, the finer details were added such as the bump, spec and normal maps for each of the objects.
The last stage involved setting up the objects in such a way that the models closest to the camera displayed more details; this technique is known as adaptive subdivision in the 3D world.
I really enjoyed completing this visualisation project and it was nice to jump back into some 3D landscape work!
With an exciting 3D Project and clear direction, Bude Surfing Experience approached me to help develop and provide impact to their videos intros’ in order to communicate their bold and captivating surfing activities. We decided on a 3D water simulation where you would see water dripping from the logo – similar to how you would see water dripping from a surf board.
We also both decided to implement a splashing effect as soon as the video starts in order to provide more depth and impact. This gave the video intro a real hook, capturing a viewers attention and making it very impactful.

Jane from The Look Out in Cornwall approached me looking for some 3D Visualisations to display the position and the surrounding environment of the Hut.
Having been provided the architectural drawings and measurements, I was able to produce the 3D models very quickly. Which as a result, allowed me to focus more of my time on producing the 3D visualisations surroundings as realistically as possible.
It’s been some time since I had tackled a 3D project, so it was great to work on something that included a lot of nature and challenging aesthetics within the visualisation.
Update: Currently under appeal – outcome TBA.

Dean's ability to take a brief and make it a realisation is exceptional. His attention to detail and creative flair is truly professional and his ability to work with people at all levels reflects in his unique range of styles, Not only is his work of great quality but he is able to turn it around quickly. I would definitely recommend Dean and I look forward to working with him again soon to extend my portfolio.
How lucky for Bude to have someone of Dean's calibre right on the doorstep!

Here are a collection of recently rendered CGI visualisations for Gecko Head Gear in Cornwall, UK.
It’s been a while since I tackled CGI simulations, so it was great to work on some water simulations. At first, I had it setup so that the physics would fire the water to the back of the helmet however, it soon became apparent that controlling the simulation was not going to be easy. In the end, I had a series of wind forces on each side of the helmet to stop the water from bouncing and exploding soo much.
Despite this, I bloody loved doing it! Go check it out at the website, as it looks even better there: geckoheadgear.com
As a design company, we have always had our own ideas of how something should look and the style we wanted to use, Dean was great at creating the websites and 3D modelling for our products.
Always readily available for updates and small changes that are constantly needed throughout the development of the site. The work from the start has always been top quality, but as projects have moved on quality has actually improved to levels we hadn’t thought available are now present on our sites.
With limited knowledge on the more technical side of website design such as SEO, Dean was always happy to take the lead and offer help with setting up the parts of the website we hadn’t originally thought of as directly important.
We have worked on many sites with Dean and continually try to keep the websites up to date on the both the Design and Technical sides of it and look forward to working together on future projects.

H.O.K Construction SW in Exeter were looking for some 3D Visualisations to visualise the student apartments as well as the student lounge and the surrounding environment.
As the client requested for the designs to be high resolution due to the requirements of the marketing campaign. I made sure from the beginning I was using 1k textures, although I could easily of switched the textures to 4k if requested and given more timescale.
The client requested for these designs to be completed before the christmas period, therefore all documents needed to be provided immediately. The client provided all the architectural documents, references and images allowing me to start modeling the buildings, rooms and objects.
While I was in the middle of the modeling stage, the client was putting together a list of all the materials and textures to be used. This furthermore, helped speed up the process.
And lastly, after the designs had been rendered using a RenderFarm. I did some tweaking in Photoshop to help pop the designs to give it more life by adjusting the colour tones and lighting.
This project was a seriously fun project to be part of! I really hope I receive projects just like this one :)
Just wanted to say a big thank you for the incredible 3D visualisation images you produced for us. These will form an integral part of our marketing and are already attracting many compliments. You showed a great willing to please and fully understand our needs which was massively appreciated. I would not hesitate in recommending you to others.

Sign Vision, in Sidmouth, were looking for a 3D Vehicle Wrap Graphic to be printed for the Sidmouth Garden Centre in Devon. The 3D design had to be eye-catching whilst also sending out a powerful message to promote Sidmouth Garden Centres products.
After some early drawings it was obvious I was going in the right direction. From here, I gradually started modeling trees, hedges, plants and different particle systems to achieve realistic looking grass. Finally, implementing the lighting rig to bring everything to life. The design worked out better than expected really impressed with the end result :)

Here is a Commercial 3D Visualisation of La Bocca restaurant created for NineDesign in North Cornwall. The intent behind this design was to visually show how the bespoke interior designs could look to the La Bocca owners.
Every aspect of this interior design has been modelled from scratch including the textures (bump, specular, diffuse and displacement maps) as well as a custom lighting rig to achieve a realistic 3d Visualisation. On completion a RenderingFarm was used to render several stills at a high quality resolution.
