and packaging.

SERVICES

Figurehead Design provides 3D Modeling and Design Visualization for new consumer products and packaging, communicating fresh ideas towards licensing and manufacturing.

 

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 3D digital 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 photorealistic 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.

 

Design Visualization

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 images with 3D photo-realistic effects. Simple animation is available as well.

 

Graphic Design

Brand development and marketing materials are available with items such as logos, sell sheets, presentations, packaging, brochures and trade show graphics to sell your products.

6 STEP PROCESS

Client Sketch

1 THE IDEA

It starts with a great idea, your idea. It could be a list of words, a rough sketch, a detailed drawing or even photographs of existing products.

2 REFINED DRAWINGS

Refined drawings will be needed as reference for 3D modeling. These can be provided by you or we can create them for you.

3 DIGITAL 3D MODEL

NURB and Sub-division modeling software is used to create a digital 3D computer model representing your product in 3 dimensional space.

4 HI-RES RENDERING

Textures and lighting are added to the model which is then rendered from multiple angles as high resolution 2D images with photo-realistic effects.

5 PACKAGING CONCEPTS

We offer graphic and package design as well. These can also be modeled in 3D and rendered as hi-res images for presentation purposes.

6 MARKETING MATERIALS

Get your product moving in the right direction with sell sheets, brochures, presentations or anything else you might need.

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 printer then the CDM Company 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 workingwith CDM developing new products. That’s how I got started in 3D modeling. I bought programs, downloaded tutorials, read books and took classes to hone my skills. It was a perfect fit as I’m able to use all of my skills together.

 

I've 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.

 

Do you have a new product idea? Would you like to see how it would look finished prior to prototypes and manufacturing? Give me a call or send me an email and let’s talk.
