Creating your own
original marketing content is key to establishing brand identity, increasing
your Google ranking and more importantly, keeping ahead of your competitors.
A recent project with a leading mattress
designer saw our client take advantage of our Capture studio, banking multiple
studio shots that can be used across social media, marketing and print ranging
from room set, product shots and relaxed, lifestyle photography.
Our in-house design team designed a set to fit with their
brand identity – contemporary and unique. The Scandi trend works perfectly for
the crisp imagery, with the art direction being key to the photography style. We’ve been working with Otty for
several years now, helping to develop their signature brand look as their
product offerings and market share increases.
The latest portfolio release is a result of a great
cost-effective service - one room set that can be utilised for different shots -
each with their own social media message. Long gone are the days of slap dash phone
pictures, as investing in imagery is an investment in your brand. To keep costs down our post production team
retouched key shots whilst our client ‘banked’ the full catalogue of shots
ready to be used at a later date.

The Set Visions creative team have been
busy joining forces, producing Photography and CGI imagery for our global
client which is bespoke, hand crafted and truly unique. Our multi-skilled team’s creative vision translates
across both specialist mediums ensuring our CGI and Photography images are
perfectly in parallel and on form. By using
both disciplines we delivered the project within budget without compromising
Lincrusta recently approached the team with a fantastic challenge to create
editorial content that relies on our Photography studio’s realism and attention
to detail whilst exploiting CGI’s ability to render photorealistic architecture
and location. By using the same product
in both studios we’ve created imaginative product images that do just that!
The styling direction was overseen by our Head of Creative, with our Photography Studio manager keeping a keen eye on the CGI output.
Each deeply embossed paper design is printed blank and applied to the walls ready for the hand painted finish, meaning every fitting is truly bespoke. A great advantage of working with CGI means our teams can re-use 3D assets to easily create alternative images. Below is an example of using the previously created Tropical Leaf paper and combining it with the Trellis, for a coastal take on the designs.
Our creative team delivered a set of images that are perfect for brochure, POS and social media. To see more of our trend based portfolio take a look at our Instagram, or contact us on 01274 6100 to ask how our creative CG and photographic studios can help.

Capture, our photography team, are experts at producing
beautifully crafted room set photography. With an in-house creative team
directing each shoot, a fantastic project management system in place and over
135 combined years’ experience in the photography industry we produce visually
inspiring content for print, social media and video.
A recent project saw our trend driven stylist work alongside
one of our established clients Cavalier . The Industrial Sleek trend combines
iconic industrial influences with a high-end finish. The tactile and textured theme
is easily captured by the studio team. The crisp lighting combined with softer
texture details is something that CGI can struggle to recreate. CGI has many
offerings, but studio photography is still leading in the industry.
Charlotte, our photography studio manager works with our clients
to deliver bespoke images or can work to produce more budget friendly options. Once
a budget is signed off the team produce mood boards with a detailed sketch so
our clients can really visualise their concepts before production starts. Our
experienced set builders expertly craft room sets adding key architectural
elements to set the location be it a city centre en-suite or a boutique country
Gone are the days of stock photography, the team have
invested in the latest digital cameras and software to get the best results
ensuring all our projects are at print and video quality.

in-house stylist team analyse and interpret global trends translating them into
everyday, achievable styles. A recent studio project with one of our
long-standing clients saw us use the botanical trend to give their product a
fresh, modern look.
The client’s release of their new tile
range had to reflect their ethos of a contemporary product that works within
the home. We designed a space that could
lend itself to changing with trends, with a modern kitchen and tile choice in
tones that can easily adapt to several styles within the home.
Plants are very on trend right now with
botanicals, jungle prints and the statement cacti popping up all over. The team added a little jungle vibe with
linens and crockery, then brought fresh green colours through with other
displayed pieces. Finally, adding the
succulents and ferns for that extra botanical touch.

The Set Visions team
love an innovative photography challenge.
Our Capture team worked alongside one of our long-standing clients who
has a rich design and manufacturing history where colour tones and design is
key for each collection. Our client
pride themselves on the use of colour, with this shoot embodying the raw fibres
and explosion of colour; emulating the dye process.
The final piece is one large installation created by
strategically placing each fibre as though floating through mid-air. The image was successfully used across
multiple media platforms in the UK and was key in their display at Neo Con in
the US. Check out the behind the scenes
sneaky peek video to see the creative process!

Set Visions offers a creative consultancy
service, when combined with location and studio photography we truly offer the
Our Head of Creative recently worked
closely with Camira, helping to develop imagery direction for their new product
launch, whilst taking influence from the innovative product design. During the
location shoot the creative photography team focused on the natural influences
of the product, playing with formation and pattern.
At the Photography studio the second
concept was influenced by the rock formations at The Giants Causeway, Ireland.
The iconic natural hexagonal structure gave a graphic direction to the imagery.
The team prepped hexagonal blocks with their new product and created a striking
set of imagery reflecting the strength and durability of the product design.
