Do you have an idea for a product but don't know where to start?

Maybe you’ve been working on some rough sketches or drawings but they just aren’t capturing your vision. Design Visualization can help you sell your concept. Our goal is to help you realize your product idea and get you to the next level. We do this by creating a custom digital 3D model that represents an object from all angles, giving viewers the ability to better understand your design concept. This model can then be rendered into photo-realistic image with a high level of detail. This is useful for new product development and prototyping. It also ensures that your design vision is fully realized creatively, before engineering, marketing and production begins.

Digital 3D Modeling

NURB and/or sub-divisional modeling is used to create a 3D computer model that represent an object from all angles. This gives the ability conceptualize the product before going to production.

High Resolution Rendering

Textures and lighting are added to the 3D wire frame model which is then rendered as high resolution 2D images. The model is shot from multiple angles creating photo-realistic images.

Design

Product, package and graphic design are available. We also design logos, sell sheets, presentations, brochures, trade show graphics, etc. to help sell your new  product ideas.

ABOUT

Russell S. Mims

Owner/Visual Alchemist

I think of myself as a “Visual Alchemist”, taking rough design concepts then refining them down to their purist form with the use of 3D models and photo-realistic renderings.

 

I’ve been creative all my life. I studied Graphic Design, Illustration and Photography at Cal State Fullerton. After college I took a design job for a company specializing in new consumer products working with corporate companies and movie studios creating licensed products and promotions.

I moved on to start my own company, Figurehead Design yet was fortunate enough to continue working with previous employers developing new products.

 

I have truly become a "modeling junkie", modeling every chance I get. My biggest kick is starting with a rough idea and seeing the final results in a hi-res photographic image. I enjoy working with clients to problem solve taking their ideas from the start to the finish.

SOME KIND WORDS

"Figurehead Design is a great asset to our art and design production requirements. With often tight timelines and vague direction, Russ will work with me to get a product that is brand focused and compelling. As some projects are quite complicated, using all forms of data provided, Russ will coordinate and mold it into a great looking finished piece. I can trust the final art will work coming from Figurehead Design."

 

Rudi Eddy | Retail Services | SHIMANO AMERICAN CORPORATION

"Super talented is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Russ. I have had the pleasure of working with Russ for over 15 years now. Initially as an employee and then as an ongoing freelancer. Russ continues to impress me with his desire to learn new design programs and attend seminars to stay current. He is well connected and respected in the industry. Russ has always been a pleasure to work with, even on those never ending projects that make most of us crazy. I recommend Russ highly."

 

Laurie Schafer | Creative Director | THE CDM COMPANY, INC

"I have worked with Russell Mims and his company, Figurehead Design for many years, on a wide range of projects to which he has always added tremendous value. Russ is not only a gifted graphic artist and 3-D designer, he is also an astute strategist and manager of key resources. No matter what the scope of the project, Russ has always enhanced it artistically, and consulted with great intelligence on the best possible way to execute. An estimable asset."
