What is a Visualiser?

Visualisers are talented and skilled people able to bring creative ideas to life either digitally or in print. Usually working from a verbal brief or from a rough scamp scribbled down by a designer, they use their technical or artistic skills to create a ‘visual’.

Skills and experience necessary for this role:

A natural talent for hand drawing is essential, as is having a working knowledge of Adobe packages. Previous experience of using Cinema 4D or 3D studio max would be useful.

Required work experience:

This is a difficult question to answer as natural artistic talent is hard to quantify, but it would be fairly unusual to come across a visualiser who didn’t have several years of work experience under their belt.


£35,000 – £40,000
