Video showcase for marketeers

Our video department ‘Motion’ creates fantastic video content for instore use and marketing. Launching a new range of kitchen doors, our long-standing client needed the product video turning around quickly. Our creative team utilised new CGI images our Pix team created and combined these with editorial video shot in the photography studio and pre-shot location work.

This trend based video also called upon our styling department, illustrating how the stylish grey gloss door is adaptable to today’s modern lifestyle whilst fitting with Benchmarx’s brand identity. Lastly, our editing team worked with the content to create the upbeat promo film perfect for in-store use, marketing and social media.

Engineered marketing content

Strong visual content is key to a successful marketing campaign. Whilst working with an international engineering company our art directors were challenged to take a piece of highly engineered product and visually illustrate the beauty of the product design.

As a visual content agency, our in house team took a multi discipline approach. The conceptual studio photography and the CGI animation tied in with the client’s brand identity. The brief was very open which our Art Directors relished! The combined result has given the company both video and image content for in house publications, branding material through to website and social media content.

Vlog-Muted Pastel Hues

Hi Joel Young here, the CGI Stylist at Set Vision and welcome to our next VLog entry!

This month I’ve been looking at muted pastel hues which are set to be seen in different trends across the world of interior design for 2017, including the Terracotta and Desert Escape trends. These muted pastel hues are great because they have a natural base which allows them to work as a collective or as a basis with a diverse pop colour.

Why not grab a brew and a biscuit, sit back and relax and enjoy our latest VLog!

CGI has never looked so real!

Pix main image

In 2009 Set Visions embarked on an adventure into the world of CGI. We created our brand “Pix”, which delivered undisputed photorealistic images. 8 years on and we’re delivering incredibly emotive imagery using our Pix technology, CGI has never looked so real, so lifestyle, so daylight.

Pix can also offer tremendous logistical benefits over traditional photography, and using techniques we’ve honed over the years, we deliver consistent quality and speed at the most competitive rates. Take a look at our all new CGI website to see some of our latest work - prepare to be amazed! pix.setvisions.co.uk

ChristmasBlog Dog cropped (RT)

Set Visions would like to wish you all an extremely Merry Christmas and cheers to a fantastic New Year. We couldn’t resist using Huey, our studio mascot, as the face of this year’s Christmas card in his very own CGI snow globe.

We are hugely excited for 2017. The next instalment of our Interior Trend Video Blog will kick us off in January, followed by the launch last of our Set Visions websites, completing our rebrand.

Our offices will be closing on Friday 23rd of December with the full team returning on Tuesday 3rd of January 2017. To keep update with all the news and goings on at HQ simply add your details to our mailing list. We’re now off to embrace the Hygge lifestyle- Although, we must remember; if we make CGI mince pies, we can’t eat them!

‘Hygge’ Home: the Danish art of living cosily

Main image

As the nation falls in love with the Danish ‘Hygge’ home movement - if you have not heard of it yet well you will now - after all, Denmark was voted one of the happiest places to live, and with this philosophy in life we totally agree.

In essence ‘Hygge’ means creating a cosy, homely, warm atmosphere whilst enjoying the good things in life with good people around you. Sit back and take in our trending guide whilst enjoying a warming cup of tea, the perfect Scandinavian way.


Layering texturesMiddle image

As the nights close in for these wintry months it’s time to cozy up in thick, cable knit throws, add plenty of rustic charm with baskets to store and accessorize - perfect for the cozy, rustic look.

Plenty of candles should adorn your ‘Hygge’ home, creating a warm friendly feel. Lanterns are perfect, style them up in sizes to create depth. Mix woods and chromes to get a modern/rustic feel.

Social style
Bottom image

The living room is a social space that welcomes the family and friends in for an evening of relaxation and quality times. It’s key to echo that friendly feel with layered up cushions and throws for guests to snuggle up on the sofa. Create a welcoming space with scented candles and a good selection of coffee table books.

After an evening spent enjoying simple life pleasures in your beautiful home, why not take a calming retreat to your bedroom? Making this space ease you in to rest with its deep atmospheric walls and subtle choice in lighting will create a perfect space to snuggle up and read a book.

Trend Alert-Mixed Materials in the Kitchen

We've been championing the Mixed Materials Trend during 2016 in a lot of our Kitchen images and we believe this trend will only grow in strength during 2017. By bringing natural materials into our home we add a connection to a lifestyle that celebrates and embraces nature and its unique imperfections. Below are some of our favourite examples.

Surface design that mimics nature
middle

The Stone Blue facia utilises the latest technology in surface design. The textured surface of the
wood grain effect makes it a great solid wood replica with all the benefits of a laminate. This has been layered with tonal marble and cool greys for an elegant and refined look.

By using the textured Walnut facia in the industrial style kitchen, warmth has been added to the palette. The tactile mix of textured Walnut, embossed tin wall tiles with textured slate lends personality to the clutter free kitchen.

Exposing and unifying the look
bottom


The skylight in the Oak Shaker kitchen is divided by textured wooden beams and exposed sandstone, creating contrasts with the slick finish of the painted plaster. What we choose to expose and hide creates an interesting commentary for any contemporary kitchen.

Mixing materials doesn’t always require contrasting textures. The matt doors, matt walls and semi-matt floor tiles combine the same texture but still allow to stand out in the kitchen. The use of one grey hue ties the look together.
