I read an article a few days ago talking about visulisation styles that architects use. I was quite interested in this. Unfortunately the article itself wasn’t exactly what i was expecting, however, it did make me think about the visuals i have produced over the years.

I used to have a certain way that i created visuals. They were sketch renders with a lot of collage work and desaturated colours. I saw architectural visuals as trying to convey an atmosphere and the ‘photo – real ‘ stuff as lacking a certain soul.

Lately i have been creating work that has a more realistic feel. I believe this is due to putting a lot more thought and working through the design in a lot more detail. I guess its always nice for people to read different things from an image, in which case the more abstract ones could be seen as more successful.

Recently i see a beauty in the honesty of a visual. Its a snapshot which would look different depending on the weather and also the time of day. I guess each image needs to have a purpose and therefore if the image gets the viewer to understand this purpose then the image is successful.
