At Design by Distraction we have the knowledge and expertise to execute ideas that work, right across the board.
Whether marketing your product or service, Design by Distraction can provide the creative inspiration to enable your company to stand out from the crowd.

3D visual realisation is using 3D computer modelling to create, illustrate and communicate photo realistic images. Once created, 3D models can be viewed from any angle, can be used to test lighting and shadow casting, materials, and colour schemes – or can be combined with photo montages to show designs in relation to the existing surroundings.
The final visualisations can be used to present and communicate designs, for the purpose of planning and patent applications, visual marketing including advertising, brochure and web publication, and from the 3D model, walkthrough and fly-round animations can be created in Video, CD and DVD format.
By far our most common use of 3D modeling is providing virtual architecture for some of the country's leading architects and property developers as well as smaller independents and self builders. Design by Distraction produce a huge array of 3D perspectives, animated presentations and interactive tours including individual house styles, apartments, street scenes and complete developments.

Through our network of quality printers we can also advise on the most suitable print process to use in order to achieve the best possible result, and to hit that all-important deadline.
From business stationery, brochures and posters through to packaging and promotional items, we work with our clients and suppliers to provide a complete design and print solution that not only meets your design brief, but also delivers eye-catching concepts that are reproduced to the best possible standard.
