eSports players Photoshoot for SAF Team

SAF EA Sports Players Norwich Photo Shoot

There’s nothing like a last minute job and the eSports players photoshoot for newly rebranded SAF.gg was certainly that. With 48hrs to sort locations and get everyone in the same room at the same time was a big ask. Working with GH Photography a studio space and lighting was inplace and a hand full of lifestyle locations were scouted. Both eSports players were pretty much on time and soon the profile and supporting photos were underway. Firstly pulling the best from the team mates, swag and winning poses were worked to out and in the bag. Sporting SAF official merchandise and team shirts SAF MD Callum was pleased as his two young players relaxed in front of the camera.

 

Outdoor Lifestyle Photo Shoot

With all the play profiles sorted to EA Sports guidelines it was on to the lifestyle part of the shoot. Working the the tight deadline and player availability meant an evening shot was the only option. Just to throw a spanner in the works the perfect weather took a turn literally as we were leaning the studio. But rain did not stop play. With flashes and lights all in their rain proof covers we hit Norwich fully prepared. Urban and architecturally impressive locations were selected and the boys embraced the task at hand. The rain added to the drama of some of the location and if anything added to the look and feel of the final images.

With Callum happy with the evenings shoot it was back to the studio and time to process the selected photographs. Working late into the night and early the next morning the final photos were all processed and sent off to the client so they could fire them over to EA… All head of the deadline.

    Web site update we can solve it

    wecansolvit web site update
    When one of our clients came to us with an urgent need to rebrand and get a new web site update designed we jumped on the task. Requiring just a name change Savi Recruitments old logo element could be recycled for the new brand. Our good friends as Savi Recruitment were required to go thru a name change earlier this year… wanting to keep it “the same but different” we could re use the colour scheme and logo element that had already served the company well. Becoming SolvIt Recruitment a funky domain name was chosen…  www.wecansolvit.com is now the new home for Scott and his team. A short and quirky name will allow the new web site be rememberable. Keeping the new web site clean and simple its an easy task to find the job you’re looking for then get hold of the Solvit team.

      Serious About FIFA website and brand development

      Serious About FIFA Website and Brand Development

      COG media and please to now be working with SAF (Serious About FIFA). SAF is an eSports Team and community for hardcore FIFA players and pros looking to have in depth discussions around gameplay, tactics, news, esports, and more.  Serious About FIFA is the worlds largest paid SIP Discord in the world for the past two years. Taking on their existing website which required a lot to improvement to say the least. Firstly we updated the existing site to perform and comply with Google and corrected the imagery to match Serious About FIFA’s demographic.

      Then we set about updating the website to our tried and tested platform. Moving away from the Visual Composer back end to the more flexibly Elementor. Lifting the existing wording and imagery the site was quickly taking shape. Updating all the existing product line photos with new clean imagery all compressed for page speed the new site was close to being ready to go live. Whilst we were working on the back end of Woo-commerce online eCommerce shop we realised that COG media could bring a lot more to the SAF brand as well as the site. Taking on our own back we have a couple of prototype new products produced sporting the new slogan we came up with “I PLAY THEREFORE I AM…” 

       

      Product Development

      Once we had the mocks ready we drop a quick message to SAF and they were round to go over the ideas we can come up with. Embracing the new branding with the addition of adding gamer tags to the certain products we started to expand the items in online shop. Chill E Sports Bottles, Snapback Caps and Beanies were the first of out new items to hit the store with the first orders coming in only 24hrs after they added. 

      Moving on from the initial products we set out adding the the SAF brand. To keep the costs down we turned to 3D renders and Photoshop to create and develop new ideas and expand on existing one item products.

      Read all about it…

      Bringing a new way of blogging to Serious About FIFA… Put it up and keep it up! Blog posts were being removed after they had served their purpose. Blogs are an important part of search engine optimisation, with information and details based round your organisation. A suite of imagery was created for new team members, eSports news and all things FIFA. Keep the brand across the entire site is key.

        Innovatum Smartsearch 3D Trade Show Video

        Innovatium Smartsearch 3D Video

        Another exciting project was offered to us on the back of a trade stand design we produced last year.

        Innovatum tasked us with bringing the trade stand to life with animated sequences depicting all their services.

        A very simple storyboard was sent over with a few supporting photographs.  We quickly decided to reproduce the fish tank cutaway look we’d used before for the 3D video sequences.  This came with a whole set of issues we needed to come up with answers to.

        Nigel set about coming up with the technical aspects of designing a 3D scene that would work within the boundaries of the look we were after.

        Merging a clipping and object rigged scene with a lighting and texturing scene a working look came together.  Innovatium’s ROV could now fly around a vurtual  undulating sea bed with rocks and plants scattered about.  Lighting effects were used to simulated merky water with particle systems generating bubbles from the ROV’s motors.  Real world data was superimpose on to the 3D world to show how Innovatums technology works.  Cutaway 3D scenes based on board a survey vessel we’re used to show actual screens from real surveys.

        Artistic license was used to show the magnetizing of seabed cables in true Acme style cartoon way with a giant magetnet fixed to the back on a ship.

        Local business The Cooking Guild were in the need for a promotional video shoot showcasing one of their range of designer but functional kitchen knives. Wanting to show the versatility of the knives in a professionals hands. Extending what the client was after we also added in the 3D modelling of the knife allowing for a detailed flypast of the product that we just couldn’t get with camera in the real world.
