Marketing Images

Boost your advertising campaigns and captivate your audience with compelling visual storytelling.

WHAT ARE MARKETING IMAGES?

Marketing images are visually compelling content created to promote products, services, or brands, aiming to capture the attention of targeted audiences and motivate them towards a desired action, like a purchase or website visit. Utilised across various platforms, including websites, social media, and print advertisements, these images must be of high quality and resonate with the brand’s identity, often evoking emotions and featuring clear calls to action. The success of marketing images depends on their ability to effectively communicate a message that is both engaging and relevant to the viewers’ interests and needs.

HOW CAN IMAGE MARKETING HELP YOU?

Image marketing can significantly enhance your marketing strategy by providing several key benefits:

Increased Engagement

Visual content is more likely to attract attention and generate engagement compared to text-only content. Images can simplify complex information, making it more digestible and interesting for the audience.

Brand Recognition

Consistent use of visual elements that align with your brand’s identity can increase recognition and recall. This helps to build a strong visual identity that customers can quickly identify across different platforms.

Improved Conversion Rates

Marketing images that include compelling calls to action can directly influence viewers’ behaviour, encouraging them to make a purchase, sign up for a newsletter, or engage in other valuable actions.

Enhanced Emotional Connection

Images have the power to evoke emotions, which can create a deeper connection with the audience. This emotional engagement can lead to stronger customer loyalty and advocacy for the brand.

Boost in Social Shares

Visually appealing content is more likely to be shared on social media, increasing your content’s reach and the potential for virality. This can lead to increased exposure and attract new customers.

Better SEO Performance

When images are properly optimised with alt text, captions, and relevant file names, they can improve your website’s SEO, leading to better search engine rankings and more organic traffic.

Overall, image marketing is a vital component of a comprehensive digital marketing strategy, helping to improve visibility, engagement, and ultimately, the effectiveness of your marketing efforts.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MARKETING IMAGES?

WHO USES MARKETING IMAGES?

Likewise, product marketers need creative visuals to sell the product, most importantly, marketing the idea comes second to none. Above all, if no one knows about your product then no one will buy it and by harnessing 3D rendering with a mix of graphic design, amazing marketing images and videos can be created with no limit to the creativity, as you would get from photography.

Professional 3D renders are used by product manufacturers for many different reasons. Firstly, products can be visualised well before the final product is manufactured. Secondly, images can be shared across social media to gain traction for the new product design release. Taking pre-orders is always a bonus. In addition, multiple different configurations of the product can be seen quickly, including as many different colour combinations as can be thought. As well as materials studies to see what will look the best.

Similarly, product designers use high-quality 3D rendering services to present their design ideas. While sketching can only get designers so far, the next stage of the design process needs a 3D approach. Showing various different concepts for one project, to get approved in less time and push forward to the next stage.

WHERE ARE MARKETING IMAGES USED?

BILLBOARD ADVERTS

To give customers an authentic and realistic image of the goods, online stores use product renderings. To help clients grasp the product better, product renderings can depict it from several perspectives, in a variety of colours, and with accurate lighting and shadows.

CATALOGUES MAGAZINE ADVERTS

Secondly, using digital advertising is always good, but they have a short shelf life, unliKe a magazine advert. Product renders are used on magazines and catalogues to display products in a realistic and aesthetically pleasing ways not limited to physical studio set ups. They can also be used to create a professional and high-end look for the magazine or catalogue.

SOCIAL MEDIA ADVERTS

Improve your brand reputation with social media advertising mixed with Architectural Visuals. While people are always scrolling through Instagram and also may be looking for a new property, these are one of the top places to use Architectural Renderings to catch the eye of some potential clients.

TRANSIT ADVERTS

Product renders are often high-resolution 3D images that look realistic and help to draw the attention of passers-by to the billboard. They can be used to highlight the features and benefits of a product or service, and can also be used to create a strong visual impact and to help people remember the product or service.

HOW ARE 3D RENDERED MARKETING IMAGES CREATED?

3D MODELLING

Firstly, we begin any type of 3D visuals with the creation of a 3D model, in 3D computer graphics, 3D modelling is the process of developing a mathematical representation of any surface of a subject or object, in this case a product, in three dimensions via specialised 3D software’s. To clarify and begin this process an idea is needed, 3D models can be created from things such as technical drawings, sketches or photographs.

STEP 01

CAMERA SETUP

Configuring the camera for a 3D product rendering project is a critical step. It involves considering various camera settings such as field of view, aspect ratio, focal length, exposure, and more. Understanding the impact of these settings on the scene and 3D models is essential for 3D artists. Proper camera placement adhering to photography principles is also crucial. This knowledge enables artists to craft well-composed, art-directed scenes, ensure models blend seamlessly into the 3D environment, and ultimately produce highly realistic rendered images.

STEP 02

LIGHTING

Lighting is created and it can be thought of the same as a photography studio but on a computer. The lighting is applied in different directions to create the best reflections that bring out all the details of the form of the product. Depending on the desired outcome of the render. There could also be minimal lighting to create teaser images for marketing purposes.

STEP 03

MATERIALS & TEXTURING

Thirdly, the desired materials are added to the object and tweaked with all different settings, using multiple different images and processes to get the materials to look as they would in real life. After that, the lighting is finalised to highlight the finer details of the products materials.

STEP 04

RENDERING OUTPUT

Finally, setting the subject off on the final stages of the process. This is where the computer does its work, by generating the images so that they can be used. The render engine is started so that it creates all different types of outputs that are subsequently brought together in a post production software such as Photoshop and a pretty picture is created by our 3D artists.

STEP 05

POST PRODUCTION

post-production is the critical phase where the rendered image undergoes refinement and enhancement. This transformation occurs in 2D space using software like Photoshop or After Effects. During post-production, several key tasks are performed to elevate the final 3D model's visual appeal.

Colour correction, for instance, is applied to ensure that the colours are accurate and visually pleasing. Lighting effects are added to enhance the overall ambiance and realism of the scene. Compositing is another integral part of this phase, where multiple elements like reflections, shadows, and ambient occlusion are seamlessly combined to craft the final image or scene.

Compositing provides the artist with precise control over these diverse elements, allowing adjustments in properties such as colour, brightness, and contrast on an individual basis. Additionally, it facilitates the incorporation of effects like light flares and motion blur, further enhancing the overall quality and aesthetics of the 3D model.
