Kids storage Product Photography

A great brief came through to our Capture team recently: produce product photography for a children’s storage range that showcased their fantastically playful product, making sure the imagery was perfect for their e-commerce site, social sites and any print media. Our client was eager to push their online business forward with our professional imagery.

Our in-house stylists designed a playroom in complementary soft pastel shades with key props to support the lifestyle feel. Our photography team continued the soft, tactile art direction with natural lighting whilst throwing the background out of focus drawing the eye to the hero product.

To control costs the team utilised an existing room set in our studio, and with a nifty lick of paint and crafty reconfiguration we gave our client a bespoke look at a budget friendly price. Our team also delivered supporting product cut outs on white creating additional content for marketing. It was also a pleasure to have the clients on set to bag a couple of social media shots for future release.

The results are a range of images that capture the relaxed and fun nature of the product. With a second brief under discussion the team can’t wait to work with Potwells again. To see more of our Capture studio’s work visit our portfolio page or have an informal chat with the studio on 01274610600.

Trending-Terrazzo Tactile Tones

Last year we saw this trend coming… and for our clients who have a stylish, trend led eye we’ve been able to feature elements of Terrazzo textures and replicate the playful tones with shades through wall colours, props and surfaces.

Our favourite terrazzo sample at the office inspired our own Creative Meeting Room and influenced one of our latest photography shots. We used the soft and playful mixed hues for a fresh and distinctive set design, mixing greens and pinks.

Solid Surfaces

Here the custom table features a more muted terrazzo which is made from recycled materials. This is another draw to using the sustainable surface, a key value to the Set Visions design team.

There’s plenty of amazing terrazzo worktops and in recent design shows we’ve seen some stunning kitchens showing off with it. Here we used a matt pastel kitchen fascia for that cool contemporary look.

Fabrics and colour palette

We have seen plenty coming through in the last year with terrazzo pattern prints on fabric now. Here we upholstered a foot stool with the print.

When working with the terrazzo of choice it’s a good idea to try paint samples and fabric samples out against the texture to see how the colours work as a group. Here we demonstrated balance and tone though texture and composition.

Design Led Product Photography

Interior design trends are our stylist’s obsession. Design conscious brands are keen to take advantage of our in-house service to create visual content which builds upon their existing brand identity. As a visual content agency, Set Visions’ trend direction, alongside client brand guidelines, is key to producing imaginative photography that satisfies both our client and creative teams. Result: three distinct looks showcasing the different ranges giving exceptional identity to each product.

Capture, our photography studio, were selected to produce editorial images to promote Frontline’s product launches, supplying content for brochure and website. Frontline took advantage of the multiple services Set Visions offer, keeping their hand in CGI whilst commissioning the Capture team for their latest project.

Cost saving strategies are at the forefront of our production ethos, ensuring high quality photography is also value for money.

Trending-From Dusk to Pink

Long gone the days of pink for girls and blue for boys, shades of dusk pink are hotter than ever, seen in both commercial and residential interiors everywhere. It’s a versatile tone to compliment other colours beautifully making it a great colour to work with.

We’ve collated some of our latest work where shades of dusk pink have brought the interiors to life.

Photography office interior design

Block colour and Fabrics

On this conceptual product shot we used flashes of dusk pink alongside coral to really make the free-standing baths stand out. Not only does the colour make this shot look great it also gives inspiration to the consumer for their own bathroom colour palette.

Dull office spaces no more. Shades of grey, pink and mauve give this work space a contemporary edge. These colours compliment the soft edges and fabrics used making the space inviting yet maintaining a professional feel.

Go soft or dusky pink

Statement moody dusk pink tiles are the key design feature in this hotel suite turning a simple dividing wall into a design feature. As well as having aesthetic properties this design also gives an identity to the hotel making it unique.

With the Scandi trend still going strong seeing dusk pink sits hand in hand with this trend both creating a soft, calming environment. White painted walls, light oak flooring and furniture, hints of grey all finished off by subtle tones of the soft pink elements.

Trending-2019 The Year Of Colour Crush

Will this be the year you ditch the grey daze you are in? Finally inject some colour and pattern in to your home? Freshen up for the springtime ahead with some of our top colour injections and inspirations for every room in your home.

With fabric and paint choices, to colour blocking patterns on walls, have a little fun with these muted pastel hues, then contrast with a little zingy number!

Fabric colour selection set visions


Playful and family friendly

Colour pop perfection with soft furnishings as the central colour injection. Try using bold solid shades on soft furnishings, not only with your sofas and chairs but why not try more colour with your blinds or curtains?

We want to see more playful tones in the home in unsuspecting places. Kitchens tend to be play it safe spaces, but why not paint your kitchen walls in fun family friendly shades to add a little character?

Colour blocking family fun design Set Visions


Go bold or be tonal

Bathroom designs became mundane and generic over the last year. However, we have seen a strong Memphis design resurgence with bold pattern walls and prints coming back through across design fields.

Try a tonal selection of colours if the thought of bold colour pops is too much. Try working lighter and darker shades together with subtle more sleek colour contrasts such as this pink sofa. Pattern also adds that little extra umph on the blinds!

Content is King

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.

Set Visions set design photography

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.

Trending-Feature Walls In The Kitchen

Feature walls are back. Gone are the days of eye watering wall paper as 2018 sees textures making a key design statement, especially in the kitchen. The technical development of materials means marbles are more cost effective and laminates are more durable to extend the variety of offerings in the market. Our advice: expand your comfort zone, be experimental and be unique!

Create texture

Below, we used the contrasting marble worktop as an extended splash back which returns giving a high-level shelf. This creates a strong seamless look allowing the natural marbling to be the design statement.

What’s your brickwork like? Sometimes the best design pieces are the ones you already have. Here we used exposed brick accompanied by contemporary textured wall paper. Create contrast!

Modern classics

Wood panelling has consistently stood the test of time when it comes to kitchen wall finishes. Here, tongue and groove panelling painted a rich, deep blue compliments the kitchen, yet still stands out as a feature wall.

If budget is a constraint or perhaps you want something a little more subtle, tiles are a tremendous way to create a feature wall. For a contemporary touch have a play with the layout. Here we ran the tiles up to the wall cabinetry in a 45 degree herringbone pattern.
