A Three-Stage Approach to Design Excellence

We believe that good quality design requires more than just creativity. It requires research, analysis and close collaboration with you to reflect your design values, strengths, messages and priorities. To ensure that our design aligns with your expectations, we have developed a three-phase process to guide us every step of the way.



Stage 01: General composition setup

Before any actual creative work begins, Cloud N°9 team conducts extensive background research. We will get in touch with you to understand your goals, audience needs and project expectations. After research, we start modelling to create the base 3d model for the project. Once 3D model is complete, we will provide a creative imageplan per camera view, showcasing a clay model (without materials) in order to define the general composition of the project. After working with the initial documentation you provide us, by the end of this stage the project should have:


  • finalized clay  3D model
  • final camera views
  • natural and artificial lighting

You will have two (2) rounds of feedback and revisions
for this stage.


Stage 02: Materials and scene context

When our imageplans have been completed and you have approved Stage 01, the hard work begins. Furniture, lighting, vegetation, props and all the materials are added to 3D scenes. Based on your feedback, we evolve the 3D scenes according to your design directions. By the end of this stage the project should have finalized materials, textures and scene props.

You will have two (2) rounds of feedback and revisions
for this stage, also.


Stage 03: Preview of Final Images

After you confirm Stage 02, we begin finalizing CG images. Cloud N°9 team works with you to set details and color corrections for your final images. We produce draft outputs for your review and make sure that your input is reflected before any piece goes into production. When your quality standards (and ours) are achieved, we prepare your design pieces for final production.




After the design is complete, we follow up with you to assess the outcome of the project. We are keen to hear not only your insights on our process and designs, but also any feedback you have received from your audiences. If desired, we can work with you to design data-gathering tools – such as customer surveys – to collect insight from your target audiences.
