I always knew I was a creative soul, but I never really knew how my creativity would manifest itself. Then one day I was inspired to explore the potential of 3DS Max, and I finally found my canvas!
Senior Creative Technologist
As Steve Jobs once said, computers are bicycles for the mind! The possibilities cutting edge technologies give us are endless, and I am interested in using them to create new and exciting experiences.
Digital Project Manager
There once was a guy who was nerdy, who didn’t want a bio too wordy, he likes music and art and meals A La Carte and tech that is built nice and sturdy.
Head of Digital
"Strong coffee as the sun rises. Freshly cut grass. The first sip and the last bus. The sand between your feet and the ping of an email.” - said no one, ever. I love doing work that gets an audience to feel something magical. Technology is the bridge, not the car to take you there. P.S. I like metaphors.
MD & Creative Partner
I love the ideas, the blank canvas, creating something out of nothing, the open possibilities, the deep discussion. Some may find it scary, I find it exhilarating!
Like every Italian, I love good food, good company and good weather. Distracting me from Manchester’s foreboding climate is my passion for marketing and creative workspaces. I feed on music, films, theatre and proper carbonara.
With a background in publishing, I love being surrounded by creative people and watching projects come to life. Helping the office run like a well-oiled machine, mine will be the first face you see when you come through the door!
Senior Animator / Designer
I love how beautifully simple some projects appear, but when you dig into them there's much more to it. Especially in motion graphics when nudging a key frame slightly can make such a dramatic difference.
After a maths and engineering background and the odd experiment with Flash in my bedroom, I found my passion in the world of 3D and CGI. I love to explore new technologies and techniques to push my work in new directions.
Junior 3D Artist
Residential buildings interest me the most within architecture, exploring the qualities that transform a shell into a home and translating this process into my CG. If I can make someone to feel like they already live in the space, then my work is done.
Primarily known as Lucas' Dad. I'm a creative thinker that believes in big ideas and simplicity. I like to question convention but respect the principles of good design. The pencil is still my favourite tool.
I'm always getting the urge to design, the possibilities of creativity are incredible. There's no better feeling than receiving positive feedback from a happy client, safe in the knowledge that the time you spent enjoying what you love doing wasn't wasted.
Curiosity drives my work, constantly exploring the unexplored. I take influence from anywhere I can, jotting down ideas in my sketchbook daily. With a keen interest in typography I’m really passionate about functional aesthetics, striving to create purposeful design.
Senior Client Manager
I crave variety. Being exposed to new industries, people and creative processes helps me continue to learn, adapt and broaden my own skills and interests.
I am always de-constructing, asking: how are things made? How do they work? Why do they work? Getting down to the root of what makes something good is the first step in making it even better.
Being able to do creative stuff everyday is great! I get excited by the process of taking a design and sculpting a form to realise it. To see your ideas take shape in 3D is really rewarding.
Little did I realise that my 3DS Max home experiments would take over my life! I enjoy the stories that can be told through arch vis, my inspiration comes from the people and places around me and I’m always striving for that real world detail.
Striving towards the next great piece of work, buzzing off the next great moment of inspiration and knowing that tomorrow may open up a new avenue to explore.
The ability to create anything imaginable from scratch and see a concept through from a small idea in your mind to a fully composited image/sequence is incredibly rewarding. I love the fact that there's always something to learn or some obscure problem to solve!
Junior Creative Technologist
A digital product loved by all is not always high-tech. There is something low-tech, also something humane. I am exploring a way between low-tech and high-tech to bring human touch to this digital era.
Design enthusiast, business strategist, savvy facilitator and collaborator - I can talk the hind legs off a donkey, and take too many photos of my cats.
Client Manager / Producer
As a producer with a creative background, I've always been interested in visually communicating an idea and the creative process behind it. I love the journey from initial briefing to final delivery; knowing we've not only fully engaged with the brief but truly brought the client project to life.
If you can’t afford it, you could always create it using a computer, you just need a 3D printer!
Client Services Director
A strategic marketeer, in search of The Interesting: the unidentified challenge, the surprising idea, the fun in any situation. Happiest when innovating, problem solving, brand building & eating liquorice.
As a creative turned "accidental businessman", strategy is at the heart of what I do. I'm very excited to be pedalling my wares in such a creative, strategic environment like The Neighbourhood.
Being in finance means being adaptable to any industry and I've worked in many. Being in a creative environment is by far my favourite, I just love the atmosphere, the attitude and the energy!
I’m a sucker for the detail! I feel that engrossing yourself in all the various elements of a composition, producing every last detail - that can really help to tell a story and push an image as far as it can possibly go.
Client Manager / Producer
Disney has a lot to answer for! As a child I spent hours watching animation, as a Uni student I learned the craft itself, and now I love the daily challenge of delivering not only moving image projects, but all sorts of creative delights!
With ten years production and studio management experience I love helping to deliver an array of projects on time and on budget. The greatest part is creating a team that come together, and then watching an idea come to realisation.
Junior 3D Artist
I believe the only way to create great work is to love what you do. I feel satisfied when I see my ideas taking shape and this is why I have so much fun creating lovely spaces every day!
Senior Client Manager
Working across a variety of projects, having to think on your feet, overcoming the challenges and getting the best from people, these are the things I like about working in a creative environment, bringing ideas to life and seeing the reaction to it.
Junior 3D Artist
I've been interested in the built environment for as long as I can remember, I traded Lego bricks for pixels a few years ago, and since then I've not looked back! I love wrangling with renders and painting with polygons to help bring our client's concepts to life.
