Visualization is one of the most required skills by architects & designers, yet there is so much more to be learned when it comes to creating good renders. A strong visual can make or break your design! Not only are they helpful in understanding the space better, but they also help grab attention towards your work.

Here are some tips to make sure that your renders stand apart from everyone else!

1. Have a set scene

Don’t spend a lot of time editing and creating your entire model! Set a scene that showcases your design in the best way, and improve upon the visible elements.

2. Avoid wide lenses

When using wide lenses in architecture, the eye doesn’t know where to look. Try to focus on a small section to allow the details to be noticed and understood better.

3. Have a focal element

Not always the focus of the camera has an element that immediately grabs attention, and is highlighted. It will make the viewer observe the space better!

4. Add a personality

Think about who will be using the space! give your visuals a ‘lived-in’ feel, because it will make it easier for the viewer to imagine prospectively living in it.
