Harp* is a visual communication studio. We are a collective of artists, designers and storytellers with a shared desire to craft stunning visuals that engage and inspire.


Obsessive Compulsive

We believe in careful planning and detailed analysis. We rely on systematic process and meticulous attention to detail. We are fastidious (probably bordering on OCD). This is our condition. Our methodical workflow is the rail that keeps our creativity on track.  The most successful images are those that tell a story. They evoke emotion. We are experts in visual storytelling.  

Imagery Designed

Like an architect designs a building, truly effective imagery must also be designed. Precise and deliberate. Structured and composed. We are expert imagery designers.

Collective

Harp is not a typical 3d visualisation studio. We are not jacks of all trades. One single 3d artist does not complete a project from start to finish. The creation of stunning marketing imagery is a multi-disciplinary process that is far too complex for any one person to fully master. Each discipline is a career in itself… photography, styling, modelling, animation, lighting, re-touching. 

We believe that to achieve exceptional results we must specialise. We have assembled a team of brilliant, passionate and experienced designers, photographers, stylists, modellers, lighting artists, surfacing artists, animators and re-touchers. Each one is an expert in their field. We utilise this combined skill throughout each stage of every project to deliver incredible results for our clients.

RENDER FARM

FEEDBACK
REVIEW APP

For ultimate efficiency and client experience we use a dedicated online image review app that provides a centralised space for real-time feedback, mark-ups and comments. Its the fastest and most effective way of collaborative communication.

DATA DRIVEN
ANALYSIS

At Harp, we use statistics and data to engineer high performance visuals that deliver results for our clients. We analyse every detail of a project in order to create a comprehensive strategy designed to give you the competitive advantage. 

NO
OUTSOURCING

Unlike many other CGI studios, 100% of every project that we work on is completed by our dedicated, inhouse team. We never outsource anything. We take our quality control too seriously for that.

ECO
FRIENDLY

The Harp workplace is committed to being a paperless workplace, reducing energy consumption, recycling and encouraging sustainable transportation. 

HIGHLY
ORGANISED

We thrive on organisation. Nerdy? Yes. But supreme organisation coupled with extreme creativity enables a beautiful synchronicity that results in remarkable imagery… which is what we live for.

FAQ’S

What documents / info will I need to provide?

Once you have briefed us in on your project and we have decided to work together, we will provide you with a document checklist which will outline all the necessary documents we require in order to complete the project. Or you can download our standard architectural checklist here and our product visualisation checklist here.

I have a really tight deadline, can you fast track my project?

Priority Delivery can be accomodated by way of a shortened project timeline or a priority commencement date. The fee applicable is an additional 30% of the total invoice plus GST. Let us know when your ‘drop dead deadline’ is and we will assess the project and let you know whats possible. 

How many sets of revisions do I get?

Harp DOES NOT count revisions – we will keep working on your project until you are 100 percent happy with it. However, the following circumstances may incur additional fees:

  1. Design Changes – any design-based changes past the scope of the information originally provided at the date of quotation may incur additional fees.
  2. Incorrect, inaccurate or outdated documentation – any documents provided by the client (such as 3d models, drawings, schedules, mark-ups) that are incorrect, inaccurate or outdated that result in additional time spent by Harp correcting them, may incur additional fees.
  3. Missing documentation – if a client is unable to provide all relevant documents from the ‘Project Document Checklist’ (found on quotation) that are required to complete the visuals and Harp is required to create their own design, any revisions to Harp’s initial design may incur additional fees.
  4. Any changes to camera angles/position that result in significant additional time spent working on the project may incur additional fees.
  5. Any feedback/tweaks/changes required by the client after viewing preview/draft images issued by Harp, must be communicated to Harp before the next set of previews are issued. Any feedback that is held back that could have been given in an earlier revision may incur additional fees.
  6. Any revisions requested after the final high resolution imagery has been issued may incur additional fees.

Harp’s revision fees are charged at the hourly rate of $180/hr.

What resolution do you provide final imagery at?

We typically provide still images at ultra high 5000px resolution (approx 300dpi printed at A3) in both TIFF and JPEG format. And we typically provide film/animation at full HD (1920x 1080). Higher resolutions can be provided on request, just let us know what you need at the beginning of the project. 

Do you outsource any / part of your projects?

Absolutely NOT. Unlike many other CGI studios, 100% percent of every project that we work on is completed by our dedicated, inhouse team.
