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

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
Surface design that
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
and unifying the look
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

Here is a real-life horror story, team Set Vision’s
transformation is eerily…normal. This terror of tails was created by our very
own retouching department who took true delight in transforming our MDs! Quite
a side step of their daily tasks of retouching our lifestyle photography and
bespoke CGI designs. This family of true terrors wish you all a screamin’

This week at Set Visions our head of creative Jal has been feeding back inspiration and design news to fellow SV stylists (and now you) about her recent jaunt to Clerkenwell Design week. Clerkenwell Design Week showcases the best in past, present and future works of leading designers and architects. For 3 days the area of Clerkenwell is transformed into a cleverly curated, buzzing hive of design.
Heres Jal's lowdown and highlights from her visit.
This is Clerkenwell Design Week’s 7th year and I am delighted to have caught a glimpse of the future of design. I started my day at the, ‘Icon House of Culture’. This unusual industrial renovated space is the award winning club ‘Fabric.’ With its underground appeal and lack of natural light it was the perfect spot to play host to lighting design studios which includes EBB & FLOW, Bert Frank, Di Classe, Dare Studio and Haberdashery to name but a few.
As I walk through the buzzing streets full of creative eyes trying to find the ‘Detail’ zone, I am greeted by a 4.5 metre high structure nestled inside the historic, St John’s Gate. This structure was designed by ‘Flea Folly Architects’ collaborating with Dutch floorboard manufactures ‘Hakwood’ designed to create a moment of calm. Through the gate I entered a modern slated structure named, ‘Museum of Making,’ pavilion by ‘White Arkitekter,’ where a workshop of pendant punching was taking place.
I walked around to Clerkenwell Close and entered St James Church I could hear the soft sound of classical music echoing through the structure. British Designer Tom Dixon curated the space as co working space and restaurant. The beautiful stain-glass windows and traditional features of the church set against the perfect atmosphere to worship great design.
In my short time at the design week I had the pleasure of listening to a seminar, ‘Digital in design: exploring new possibilities’. The discussion was about how 3D printing is transforming the way brands produce design and what future effects it will have. Being from Set Visions this was something that is pivotal to our future.
I saw and absorbed as much as I could on my jaunt. The great thing about this festival is that is has over 100 designer show rooms in 2.5sq miles. It is a warm inviting event that opens its doors to normally off limit areas and welcomes the viewers to see the studios and workshops where great designs have taken place.
