With 3D design, it’s important to consider all angles (pun intended) of an object’s creation. When designing a color themed table, for example, it’s important for a 3D Artist to remember how this will look not only from the first person view, but from the top as well. Our layout designer allows us to view everything from a bird’s eye, so it’s important that what we make translates well at that angle also.
Reference is a huge, huge part of an Artist’s job and 3D is no stranger to some good studying of materials. Knowing trends is important in the wedding industry, and we want to keep up with them as well, so I make sure to gather as much reference material as I possibly can in order to understand what I’m making and why it’s appealing.
Lighting comes to play an important role in our venues with our day to night feature. We make sure that the seamless transition of day to night plays well and true to the venue, to give that feeling of really being there the night of an event. Sometimes for fun I’ll pop open the PreParti App in a spare moment and find a venue and plan my own party, just to see what it will look like throughout the day. The evening time always makes the venues feel so gorgeous and almost magical. To be able to look through a window outside of the event space and see the sky change from bright blue to starry night always makes me very proud of the attention to detail we’ve put in.
And most importantly, I’m thinking about who will will be using anything I create, and making sure that when they use it the PreParti App, it makes them feel that much more excited about their wedding or gathering.
