Renderings and animations are frequently considered little more than a marketing tool. At Kilograph, they take visualization a step further ensuring that these visual assets inspire not only the client but also the designers themselves. As a valuable step of the design process, they strive to make their images as unique as your projects.
A multidisciplinary visualization studio, Kilograph’s extensive knowledge of the architectural design process coupled with over 15 years of combined experience in feature film visualization, animation and visual effects, informs our unique approach. Their team of experts includes licensed architects, visual effects designers, illustrators and animators.
At Kilograph they are interested in a collaborative approach to design and visualization. Rather than practice a one size, one style fits all approach, they strive to cultivate close partnerships with their clients from project start to finish, ensuring that compelling translations of design visions are always achieved.
Kilograph produces a broad range of visual materials, from conceptual images and animations to complete digital video productions.
