Cosy marketing content

Creating concepts with trend awareness is at the heart of our Styling team’s work. Here at Set Visions we know the value of understanding brand and the design process behind products. Our in-house photography team, Capture, worked with our client to produce a bank of trend led images that has plenty of social media friendly touch points. The result is our client has relevant and engaging content that attracts and retains their online audience.

The volume of lifestyle imagery created within a two day studio shoot is enough for our customer to use in their marketing campaign, avoiding dull repetition of content. Our team took advantage of the time by photographing the product and model in a relaxed candid style. This allows our client, Woolroom to use the images as touch point conversations with their customers. Woolroom can educate and inspire potential leads, taking them one step closer to their purchasing decision.

Not to forget Yogi’s input! By using a dog to support their imagery alongside the model, Yogi evokes emotion and relatability, a reaction that links back to the brand. This strategy is part of the service from the Set Visions team, who value dog cuddles as much as brand strategy.

Bone appétit

Capture, Set Visions commercial photography team, recently created a fang-tasic set of images that are good enough to eat. The department is well established at B2B creative content which is perfect for packaging, brochure and advertising. This time the team turned their lens's and creative talons to the Halloween season for a table top shoot.

Presenting a beautifully plated dish is no longer the benchmark in food photography. With the explosion of Instagram, better smart phone cameras and effective filters most people can deliver a snap or two that is worthy of a tweet.

Our professional team are experts in story telling; using the right lens, lighting and composition for each image. Our inhouse stylist team are constantly pushing their technical skills to produce imagery that is well crafted which ultimately aims to converts sales be it via store, ecommerce or on the menu.

Create a conversation with your audience

Set Visions inhouse photography team, Capture, produce enticing food photography with the same flair and creative direction as our electronic and FMCG imagery. Here’s a great case study highlighting our photography studio working alongside our CGI studio to deliver images for brochure and social media.

As Pix, our CGI service, and Capture are both under one roof we provided a cost-effective solution to Everhot’s tactile photographic brief. Our Head of Creative pitched the imagery to their core customer base whilst having an editorial look to land their brand in the glossy interior mag circuit.

As a creative content studio, we think about the bigger picture for our clients. We needed our images to not only inform and educate the consumer about the product - we also wanted them to connect emotionally, especially for social media. Firstly, we created a stylist lead bank of cost effective computer generated imagery. We then produced a series of photography shots that support the CG story with recipe inspired images that tie in with the series of renders.

The set of images are pitched to the home cook who has a creative flair, with the interior design and recipes being achievable and relatable. Our Head of Creative was the linchpin to make sure the art direction was consistent across both services. To keep costs down we kept to table top photography produced by our inhouse photo team and food stylist.

The images are great content for social media. They allow the brand to cultivate a community and encourage discussion amongst followers about their product and recipes, where people with similar lifestyles share interests through brand touch points. Building customer engagement and loyalty is a great strategy for a product that is a once in a lifetime investment.

To discuss brand strategy and customer engagement just contact the studio for an informal discussion with our team to see how our services can help connect your product to potential audiences.

Clever with colour

Emotively connecting with your customer base is key to building brand identity. An effective way to achieve this is through colour psychology. Think neutrals, think pastels or think brights we often connect colour to an emotion or brand. Our creative team gets under the skin of our client’s brand identity and their target audience down to their characteristics and design taste.

This playful set of imagery communicates a key brand message whilst not necessarily being a commercial product shot. By manipulating scale and composition we can retain curious onlookers for longer which in turn leads to improved Google Analytics.

Our team also dedicate time to understand the end usage of the photography session, as our product shots are designed to work across multichannel offerings. This value for money approach means we can hit key audiences in editorial magazines, Pinterest and Instagram a well as standard routes of advertisement and promotion.

Art direction and trend consultation is part of the service from our Capture team. Contact the studio for an informal chat to see how our talented team can help you take the next step in your product photography.

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.

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.

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.
