VISUALISATION MASTER PLANS,ARCHITECTURAL ILLUSTRATION + 3D RENDERING One of DMPMediaâ€™s strengths is the ability to create a wide variety of architectural representations across a host of different mediums and styles. Representations range in anything from pencil sketches to 3D computer generated photo realistic renderings, although a combination of both is generally used to create a final product.
team is constantly in close collaboration with the architects and planners of Dennis Moss Partnership to ensure that the creation of concept illustrations and visualisations are as accurate as possible to the proposed design. 3D sketches and illustrations can be created from loose design concepts or plans and elevations.

VISUALISATION MASTER PLANS â€˜Giving lifeâ€™ to an urban design master plan or architectural plan is one of the most important services we offer at DMPMedia. It is generally the first step undertaken in the project design process and an important visual element for internal and client use. In the case of Eden Island (right), the master plan was a very useful tool to help with marketing and sales and for the building of the final model.

VISUALISATION PROVIDING CONTEXT Each project designed by the office of Dennis Moss Partnership recognises its place in context of itâ€™s environment. At DMPMedia we create visuals that help with this process of understanding and help explain in a graphic and visual manner how developments or buildings fit into their surroundings. Two good example of how this is achieved are the visuals prepared for Boschendal Estate and the Jamestown Urban Renewal Project as shown on the following pages. With a detailed master plan having already been prepared by DMPMedia, this is used as the base for creating our visuals and represeantations.
(1) The detailed urban design master plan is placed in Google Earth, showing the design in context of its surroundings. (2) A 3D model of the proposed development is built and rendered and superimposed over the master plan in Google Earth, or as in this case, on to an existing aerial photograph. (3) From the above process we create atmospheric stills that further enhance this visual experience.
VISUALISATION CASE STUDY: JAMESTOWN URBAN DESIGN Stellenbosch Municipality initiated an urban renewal and development process for Jamestown as a whole that would provide development opportunities for existing land owners and that provided for new extensions. The objective was to enhance the qualitative dimension of Jamestown and to create the conditions that would help put Jamestown on a sustainable development path. As part of the Jamestown development strategy, DMP was commissioned by the municipality to assist them in the preparation of an urban design framework for a new extension of Jamestown that addresses development context, various development scales and dimensions such as environmental, (bio-physical and energy) landscaping, architecture, urban design, planning, and socio economic considerations. The visuals on this spread form just a portion of graphics, plans and rendered visuals that were generated for a urban design guidelines report for the Stellenbosch Municipality.
VISUALISATION ARCHITECTURAL ILLUSTRATIONS DMPMedia creates imagery that accurately portrays the look and feel of an architectural project. Working from concept sketches, 2D drawings, or CADD files, a selection of various perspective layouts and illustrations can be created in a wide contrasting styles, ranging from black and white ‘atmospheric’ pencil sketches, to combining various illustration techniques with 3D software to create more realistic representations.

VISUALISATION CASE STUDY: EDEN ISLAND The Eden Island series of illustrations offers a wonderful example of how the studio seamlessly blends together the mediums of hand rendered sketches and 3D rendering to create architecturally accurate illustrations and representations.
As can be seen, the initial sketches done for the marketing of Eden Island closely resemble the final product that is currently being built.

VISUALISATION 3D RENDERING Also known as photorealistic renderings, DMPMedia uses 3D modelling and rendering software to create realistic computer generated images of future developments for the office as well as clients. These range from large-scale exterior models to more intimate interior detailing. These images are used across two platforms, firstly to help with the internal architectural process and for presentation and marketing purposes. All renderings are created to the correct proportion and scale - and well as utilising realistic textures, materials, colours and finishes that will be used in the development of the project.

MARKETING BRAND DEVELOPMENT Everything must have an identity and this identity is often associated with a name, be it a person, place, product or business. It is through this creation of an identity that your brand is born. Your brand is the fundamental framework of your business, the starting point of the push to success. It typifies your traditions and values and gives your product an identity and sets the tone for positioning and exposure in the market place. It is an incredibly important and a never-ending process through which long-lasting impression of your business, product or service is created in the minds of those that deal with it on an everyday basis or those that are introduced to it for the first time. At DMPMedia we understand the importance of positioning our clients in an an already crowded market place. Weâ€™ll help you identify what makes your business work and express that across everything your business does from logos to marketing campaigns.
MARKETING PRINTED MEDIA DMP Media is primarily responsible for the design aspects of digital presentation material for DMP and itâ€™s clients. This includes printed material such as documentation booklets, posters or digital material for Powerpoint presentations. Although not always considered the most exciting of mediums, it has proven to be a very useful and effective tool for marketing for clients and municipal and provincial applications and public participations meetings. Brochures are a common, affordable and effective marketing tool and a useful way to distribute information about your services or product. They need to be creative, visually appealing and interesting in order to focus usersâ€™ attention and effectively deliver the message. Our studio has the experience and skills to manage all aspects of your brochure or booklet design to suit your specific marketing needs.

MARKETING CASE STUDY: HERITAGE HILL If the necessity arises, DMPMedia are well equipped to produce marketing and advertising material for press.

DMPMedia was primarily responsible for the concept and design of the campaign and we joined forces with a specialist in the marketing and advertising industry who oversaw the smooth implementation and roll out of this aspect of the campaign. The campaign was published in both English and Afrikaans newspapers and magazines and proved to be highly successful for exposure and sales.
