Turn ideas into high quality CGI demonstration movies!

Movie-standard CGI Animation for designers and end users who want to make great design ideas look even better! CGI demonstration movies are perfect when you need to show lifelike realism to display the features and benefits of prototypes or products, to demonstrate everyday functionality, or a complex process or operation. If all you have is an idea on the drawing board and need to present it in all its splendour before a prototype is created, be it for presales, to show investors, or to advertise ahead of production then AdPlace has all the flair and ingenuity you need. And why should you waste time and spend money training an engineer to be an artist, when you can bring in an expert graphics studio to give you what you need to bring that design to life now? You can see a wide range of products and applications in action – many of which did not exist when the CGI was created – in a short film at the link below. You’ve done the hard work in creating your design, so why not ask us to bring it to life. Would your customer prefer ‘death by PowerPoint’ or a 3D animated movie with the wow factor that will help you make that sale? The possibilities are endless. From existing products that need assembly instructions, to conceptual functionality that is best viewed in a CGI animation, it really does give customers a window into your products. Animation makes the most complex idea or product easy to understand! Whatever your concept, AdPlace can make it look even more impressive! See some fantastic examples...

Send ‘local’ content to your websites the moment they arrive on your website

Have you ever landed on a website that somehow, knows where you are located and leads with content that’s local to you. If you’ve seen it in action, then you’ll know that this is an incredibly powerful way of engaging with website visitors, the second that they come onto your website. And it’s not as difficult – or expensive – as you may think. The days of simply hoping website visitors will find what they need on your website are long gone. So, why not point visitors to content relative to where they are located? After all, they are more likely to stay longer and visit more pages if the content they read is relevant to what they are looking for and to where they live. Think about it for a moment. If you are located in Manchester and are looking for jobs in your area, then how good would it be for you to go to click on a recruitment website and immediately, be presented with a page of jobs in Manchester! They’ve got your attention now, haven’t they? Or car insurance in Nottingham. Or a video pointing you to vets in Southend, if you live there. It’s powerful stuff. Highly accurate and effective website visitor targeting allows you to present localised information in a simple, cost effective and privacy-sensitive manner – with content tailored to the visitor’s location at the moment it’s most relevant. And once they are there, keep them there, by providing relevant, engaging subject matter that could improve your response rates by 300%! It’s accurate right down to post code sector level, so if...

60 years ago today, the UK’s first-ever TV commercial was aired

Today is Tuesday 22nd September 2015. Did you know that it is 60 years today since the first-ever television commercial was aired. It was for Gibbs SR “Tingling Fresh” toothpaste and you can watch it on YouTube via this link. And before you ask, no, I don’t remember it! Back in the day, I had to go to a friends house to watch television as my parents didn’t get one until the very early 60s. We even had a neighbour come round to watch the Grand National because they didn’t get a TV until long after us. Today, you can watch TV on your phone, laptop or tablet, in the house or on the go. But, 60 years on, one thing remains the same, television advertising is still as strong as...

Hello world! Is print dead?

I recently received a post from a group on LinkedIn that asked if I thought that print was on its way back. I expect that this was delivered in regard to the way that newspaper circulations have fallen away heavily over the last five years and the consensus is that ‘print is dead!’ I do take a different view. I have worked in advertising for many years, certainly from before the Internet age came about. In fact, I remember having e-mail installed by my Internet developer and then having nobody to email! I also recall, back in the mid-1990s, making presentations to agency clients about the new phenonenom of ‘the Internet’ and showing them, via a very slow dial-up connection, how it all worked. In those days there was no Google and you went online via browsers such as Yahoo and AltaVista. I recall one particular client being impressed by the potential of email and saying something along the lines of, “It’s great, but I don’t think we’ll ever use it!” Now look. I have three-year old Gransons who tell me to “just Google it” all the time and swipe away on games on my iPad without even being able to read! Which brings me neatly back to print. My view, based on two or three recent examples, indicates to me that, far from being dead, print is on the up. Last year, trade press publisher DFA Media produced its annual Drives and Controls Buyers Guide issue in July 2014 and this was it biggest issue in almost 30 years. This year, the same Buyers Guide issue was even...
