Digital Designer Secchi SmithLondon, England, GB
Founded in June 2019, Secchi Smith is a team of eight talented artists working with renowned architects across the globe.
As artists, we help architects portray their unbuilt ideas. The most difficult element in creating beautiful imagery is to understand the power of simplicity.
Our investigation of light, composition, colour, materiality, atmosphere and narrative are all fundamental aspects of our process. The balance of these components organically leads to well-considered “moments” where the Architecture is cemented as part of a story.
It’s important to us as a studio that we take the output of 3D software as a base which we can work into as a painter would on canvas. We enjoy the process of post production, adding layers of imperfections and details to bring images to life in a more controlled manner. This approach adds to the unique quality of our work which cannot be achieved, we feel, in 3D alone. This way of working pushes us to think in-depth about what we want to achieve from each image; the story we want to portray, the focal points we want to highlight to draw the viewer into the scene.
Digital artist role
Candidates should be able to prove through their visual portfolio a strong understanding of image making.
