SketchUp Models Vol II
I’ve had a little rummage in my ever expanding (and slightly out of control) SketchUp folder on my trusty laptop and have a few little gems for anyone out there who may be interested.
3D Visualisation Project – Homebase
I recently dived into the Homebase website and had to physically lift my chin from my biscuit coloured carpet when I saw the sparkly, edgy and downright fabulous interiors ‘stuff’ that graced my laptop screen.
3D Visual Hall of Fame
When you’re a ‘creative’ type and have started to amass a (sort of) collection of works, it’s nice to take a little bit of time out from your hectic schedule to revisit previous projects and reflect, ponder and bathe in the fuzzy warmth of nostalgia.
3D Visualisation Service – The Process Explained
I thought it would be interesting to write a post explaining the process of how I create 3D visuals for my clients; from the moment I’m commissioned to undertake a new project, to the creation of the final presentation.
Glass Appreciation Society – New Members Welcome
My most recent 3D Visualisation commission, whilst slightly labour intensive highlighted a very important lesson when trying to aim for that all elusive photo-real effect…
R is for Recognition
When you get an email from Maxwell Render asking if you’d like to have your work featured on their website, it’s a pretty special occasion.
My Grand Journey Part II
It gives me great pleasure to show all of my lovely followers and readers the finished 3D Visuals, that were used in Grand Designs Live 2014.
SketchUp Models Vol I
This is a first for me, I don’t usually upload my SketchUp models to the 3D Warehouse because I’m ferociously protective of them. Yes, I do realise how ridiculous that sounds but hey, I am what I am!
Pushing the Boundaries of 3D Visualisation
Consider this my very first ‘photography’ exhibition. These spaces and their design elements do not exist. But they are very real in my mind.
Sex and the City Challenge
I’m such a devoted follower of Carrie’s fictional greatness, that I was extremely amused and secretly chuffed when my friends drew comparisons between her life and mine, with the purchase of a desk for my city centre apartment.
Industrial Inspired Urban Chic
Industrial inspired design is everywhere you look in the interior design world at the minute. And it’s not a new craze to have stumbled onto the design scene but it has had tremendous staying power.
Grand Designs Live 2014…And Me
When you receive an email from a fellow (past) student asking if you’d be interested in providing floor plans, elevations and 3D visuals for her interior room set that will be on display at Grand Designs Live 2014, you do not ignore this email.
Black & White – Embrace It Don’t Fear It
Monochrome is a term that describes varying shades of one colour. It is not correct to describe a room that has been designed using a colour palette of black and white as Monochrome. Let’s summarise…
Sinking One’s Teeth Into ‘Real World’
When fate comes a knockin’…
New Feature – Tutorials
I’m giddy beyond all belief. I’ve discovered an amazing FREE screen capture application that allows you to video stuff from your very desktop. Seriously, I’m like a kid at Christmas here. If you’ve ever wanted to hear my dulcet tones (yes, I’m joking), then you’ve come to the right place! I’m dipping my little pinkies into […]
Post Processing – Who Knew?
As a self-taught devotee of all things CAD related, I’m continually finding myself on a journey of discovery even though I’ve been dabbling in the ‘art’ of 3D rendering for well over a year now (trust me, it’s an art – my hair-pulling, feet stomping and sulking can vouch for that!!). But I’ve stumbled upon something […]
Back to Basics – The Humble Light Bulb
Sometimes I’m continually amazed at just how much my taste has changed from I started studying interior design. Here I am, researching various types of lighting for a commercial space and what am I drawn to? Light bulbs. Plain, good ‘ol fashioned light bulbs. Doesn’t sound overly astounding, offensive or ground-breaking. But when I say ‘light […]
1 Year Anniversary – It’s Top 5 Time
I took a sharp intake of breath, slapped my face a few times, splashed some cold water on my chops, did a few warm-up stretches and then finally typed my first blog post nearly 1 year ago. 84 posts; 11 pages; 223 comments; 107 followers; 21,885 views and Anita Brown [Design Studio] is still going strong. As I […]
