WE ARE AN ESTABLISHED AND AWARD-WINNING CGI AND ANIMATION STUDIO
Our clients work with us for lots of reasons. Sometimes it’s because they like the fact that we’re based in the North, where the air’s clean, the landscape’s pretty and the beer’s cheap. Often it’s because they love what we do, how we do it and the team we put around them to make projects come to life.
Then there’s our state-of-the-art technology; our spacious production studio and our passion to create the perfect package of images every time.
We work with a wide range of companies both nationally and internationally to create short films, verified views, augmented reality applications, 360-degree virtual tours, UE4 environments and much more. Our work is constantly changing as technology evolves and we are committed to being at the forefront of animation and visualisation.

WHO WE’VE DONE IT FOR
Our clients over the years have come from a wide range of sectors, including residential, hospitality, commercial, leisure, MOD, industrial, retail and transport. Outside of construction and property, we have worked on 3D models for phone and new technology concepts. More recently, we’ve been bringing our skills into products, CGIs and configurators for the KBB (kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms) sector.
It’s testament to our expertise, creativity and client-focused approach that some of our clients from the early days of Virtual Resolution are still working with us today.

What our Clients say
“I highly recommend Tim and his VR team, they worked very hard to deliver high-quality, realistic kitchen visuals on time and within budget. I look forward to working with them on many future projects. ”
Rebecca Routledge, Story Homes
“The involvement of Virtual Resolution at the concept stage of the project was extremely valuable. Tim and team quickly transformed the design concept for our project into a 3D rendered fly through model which really helped in terms of enabling key stakeholders to visualise how the final scheme would look and function. Moving on from that stage, the model has also been a key tool utilised in terms of external promotional activity and also in relation to selling space to potential tenants. Virtual Resolution provided a high-quality product in quite an aggressive timescale whilst being fully responsive to client requests for changes. ”
Paul Clifford, Head of Economic Development, Barnsley Council
“Tim and his team have a real skill set in portraying the future of property to the everyday consumer. The work that Tim produces goes above and beyond the expectations of what CG imagery can showcase. Each image that has been produces is hard to distinguish between reality and virtual. VR are a highly professional outfit that study the subject site in detail as well as bringing creativity to their products. We could not recommend enough ”
Max Hunter, Maritime Capital
“Having worked with VR for the last couple of years (though indirectly), I knew how capable they were at delivering great CGI’s. However, having worked directly with them this year (namely Tim), I want to say a huge thank you for being great people to work with, organising the process start to finish and delivering our vision through incredible assets, on time. It’s refreshing to meet people who genuinely care about what they do, and it shows in the work that’s delivered. Thanks Tim!”
Anna Stratch, Fusion Students
“Thanks so much for working with us on this - you've helped to created some really impressive resources that will support our marketing”
Dr Alison Halliday, The Institute of Cancer Research

“VR understands the needs of our business, the timescales, and can digest very complex briefs. The team has never let me down on any deadlines, and always over-delivers, which is a great characteristic to have. ”
Darrel Owens,Development Director Europe, Starwood Capital Group
“Tim and the team at Virtual Resolution were an absolute pleasure to work with and guided us expertly through the CGI process with excellent communication throughout. The final CGI of our hospice redevelopment has surpassed anything that we ever thought was possible. It has really helped to lift the drawings off the page and show us how our long awaited new hospice building and facilities will look. It has also helped to inform slight design tweaks on the project following staff feedback after seeing the first draft CGI images; Tim worked with our Architect to make these changes through the CGI build process. It has proven to be an essential tool in engaging potential supporters to fund the project, with exceptional feedback from everyone whom we have shared it with so far. Thank you Virtual Resolution! ”
Selina Lodge, Head of Capital Appeal, Overgate Hospice

Customer Relations Manager
Ray is our office mascot and has been here almost from day one. His name is the first that most clients ask for and he is the last one to let you leave the office. Bring him a treat and he is a friend for life; bring the post and he may just sound like the biggest Rottweiler ever.
Eric admires all aspects of architectural visualisation and treats every project as a piece of art. It really matters to him that his work is creative, so he’s always looking for new ideas and learning new software. He is also a master at making the most of his time and will always find efficient ways of achieving the desired results.
Originally from Lithuania, Eric has embraced many aspects of living in Yorkshire but still can’t manage a proper brew, although we’ll forgive his addiction to green tea if it makes him slightly less grumpy.
Graduating with a BSc in Visualisation back in 2005, Mark has since gone on to gain a wealth of experience working within different visualisation sectors. He has created mission planning software for fast jets, crafted real-time synthetic environments and modelled highly accurate race tracks for F1 simulators, right up to producing the ultra-realistic visuals you see here.
Mark is highly proficient in 3D modelling, rendering and post-production, using mainly 3DS Max, V-Ray and Photoshop. During his time with us here at VR, he has been involved in a variety of projects, including several large-scale student accommodation schemes and office re-designs, creating still visuals, 360 tours and animations.
When not sat at a computer, Mark can be found mountain biking, hiking, camping and spending time with his kids.
Jordan has recently settled in Huddersfield permanently after relocating here to study. He achieved a First Class honours in Interior Design, with his final major project featured in Dezeen’s student spotlight for the best socially focused design.
Curating the perfect space is Jordan’s passion and he spends much of his spare time creating assets and scenes for virtual worlds. His experience in this area, combined with his skills in 3DS Max, Vray and Photoshop , has seen him excel since joining us. He’s a quick learner and has recently started taking the lead on interior-based projects for student accommodation and building developers.
A keen PC gamer, Jordan can often be found huddled away in his games room with his clunky headset and RGB lights – it makes you game better, apparently.
