Measurement of Success
Realistic lifestyle images which could be used to show the quality and finish of the Umbra Shading Blind products.
Umbra Shading approached D Cube as they were after hyper-realistic images of their products and were interested in the pre-created imagery option. They wanted an option that would provide them with quality images without costing the earth.
The approach from D Cube was to give Umbra Shading access to the library of over 6000+ pre-created images. From there D Cube helped Umbra to choose an image that would showcase the high-end aesthetic of their product within a hotel room. D Cube then worked with Umbra to choose a suitable background to the image which is chosen to give the viewer an impression of the building being in London; their main target area.
The solution was for D Cube to ensure that Umbra’s window shading products looked as realistic as possible in every detail. This included adding the correct colouring of the blind fabric & adding in the detail of the strip at the bottom of the blind. The client’s knowledge of their products paired with D Cube’s knowledge of interior design meant that the blinds were portrayed to an exceptionally high quality and blended in perfectly with the room aesthetic.
