Having successfully completed our first project for Fratelle Designs, we would love to show you the visuals that were produced, but they were for a concept pitch that cannot be redistributed! So while you may be used to seeing 3D visuals in these press releases, this does illustrate one thing: for concept designs, prototypes, and… Read more »

Our secret ambition has always been world domination – and there’s no better megalomaniac task than to model up entire business districts! Designed by the incrediblly talented Ashley Richards Architect, this proposed business centre looked the goods on the drawing board, but now also looks the part in the form of a 3D computer-generated model!

A huge congratulations (and thank you) to the lucky Frazer family for being the winning bidders for the Regional Telethon Home for 2005! Going under the hammer for $600,000 in front of a 600-strong crowd, auctioneer Ron Farris flew down to Bunbury with 10 minutes to spare!
Seems like the lure of 3D visuals is drawing our clients closer to us! That, or possibly the relatively inexpensive rates and plethora of builders in Osborne Park!
After successfully completing our fourth project for O’Rourke Realty Investments, we would like to officially welcome O’Rourke Realty to the world of Constructive Media!

We’ve known it for a while now (humility runs throughout this company!) but gosh darn it, it’s time we tell the rest of the world that we roc! If you’re wondering if our English skills are lacking somewhat, let us explain with this very apt photo:
The beasts of burden have arrived! 126kg worth of renderfarm was delivered to the Constructive Media office yesterday, ready to be introduced to the existing farm. After analysing the situtation (ie. "How on earth do we set these up?") we took a quick trip across the road to Ikea to buy some shelving and started… Read more »
While we wait in anticipation for our dual-core cows (processors) to arrive, we are busy preparing their feed. It may be a sad state of affairs to find yourself watching grass grow, so we’re watching grass generate instead.
Time flies faster than a speeding bullet, and before we knew it we were 2! Now entering our third year, we are travelling stronger than ever!

We can hardly believe it, but September the first marks Constructive Media’s second birthday! That’s right, 730 days ago we entered the world kicking and screaming! Since then we’ve built up a fairly hefty list of clients that we have done work for, and we can’t help but thank each and every single one!
With more work than we could poke a pixel at, it was soon identified that we needed additional help here in the office. After reviewing applications from over 50 applicants, we would like to introduce you to Erin Putland, our brand new Admin & Marketing Assistant.
Say you could predict the future. Most people might think of entering the lottery or buying certain shares, but not us – we think of what the inside of the Telethon Home will look like. Yes, our weird thought patterns are about as random as they get, but have a look at the following, and… Read more »
It’s natural progression at its very finest. We started off with the single cow in the renderfarm, happilly churning through pixel after pixel. However, soon there were more pixels than the single cow could accommodate for, so we added more cows.
It has been a bumper month for entries, and the end-of-the-month deadline is fast approaching, so make sure you get your entries in to be in the running to win a Canon Pixma IP1000 printer!

After our recent debacle trying to install 3D Studio Max 7 on our systems, (if I hear the words "kindly check is there a change in the request code" I will implode) the kind folk at AutoDesk have sent us some funky black t-shirts! So now we all have something to wear on stakeouts and… Read more »
It was a three-way tie with all nominees scoring 9 out of a possible 10 correct answers! In accordance with our rules, these names then went into a hat with one person being chosen at random and that winner is …
Just a quick reminder that entries for our July competition are closing at the end of the month, so if you want to have a chance of winning the 128MB USB Memory Key you’d better get your entry in! We have had a flood of entries in so far, but you have to be in… Read more »
After investing countless dollars in new software, and in particular the Vray rendering engine, the release of the new Nine Inch Nails video clip "Only" is 95% computer-generated, and done in Vray. Directed by David Fincher of Fight Club fame, it has got some of the most stunning computer-generated scenes that we’ve … umm.. seen!
While you’d be excused for thinking we deal more with pixels than paper, we’ve recently noticed just how much paper we do use at Constructive Media so to make sure it’s not all going to waste, we’ve enlisted the help of Western Recycling to come and pick up paper for recycling every month!
Constructive Media is on the lookout for a very talented person to assist us with marketing and administration – if you think you’re the right person for the job get on the phone and tell us why!

The reason for that was simply that there were sights, sounds, and yes, even smells around the world that just had to be sampled! A whirlwind trip of the planet has brought the following photos… Read more »
It started out as a routine patrol of the Shenton Park area, when one of the staff of Constructive Media discovered a lovely sign promoting the new Trillogie development! Lo and behold, it’s not just the one sign, but two – there’s a residential and a commercial part to this development!
With a seemingly endless line of work for clients in progress, it seemed that we neglected our own office for a while there!

Repeated access to common data was the key motivator behind the set-up of the Media Archives for The Rural Building Company and Residential Attitudes.

Every morning we are treated to a hit of caffiene (the first of many) from the black van driven by Luka and Pete of Lust Fa Coffee. This mobile “coffee shop on wheels” brings piping hot coffee to our doorstep and as such they have entrusted us to create their website to promote their 100%… Read more »

Armed with only a computer and a vivid imagination, Architectural Illustrator Paul Ison was unleashed to create a vision of Constructive Media’s next office. The results were breathtaking – proving that there really is something in the coffee over here!
We have harped on about Ozkä Design before, but here for your viewing pleasure is just a sample of the objects that are being developed and actively used in our interior visuals!
A wonderful location presented prime signage space, and this little lead brought us to meeting Albrecht Fear and the Access Group – this development in Shenton Park has formulated the first project that we have worked on together and so far the response has been very warm indeed!
If you think we don’t do much in the office, you’re probably right.

Continuing on the theme of simulating hand-drawn sketches, Constructive Media has presented below the various levels of “sketchyness” that are on offer for all visuals.
"Divide and conquer" (or "divide et impera") is an age old saying used by Florentine philosopher Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527). While we were unfortunately but a few generations late to hear him speak these words, we commend him on setting a fine example for the future of fashion in the late 1400’s.
… and by the term "Digital Painting" we’re not referring to finger painting! With a little know-how, resident Architectural Illustrator Paul Ison has created these images without the aid of paints or canvas – instead he has used computer-generated images to simulate watercolour effects.
At the end of last year the staff of Constructive Media went on a little trip to the local zoo for a little rest and relaxation. Instead, we were faced with screaming monkeys, charging elephants, and that’s not to mention the sheer terror in the nocturnal house!

Aside from getting over that lame papercut joke, we here at Constructive Media have been looking at improving the output quality of our in-house printed images. Having a super-big-do-it-all printer/copier is one thing, printing on standard 80gsm stock is another.
The benefits of using Maya software have clearly come to fruition, with The Rural Building Company being one of the first residential housing companies to use these higher quality visuals from Constructive Media.
It was about time we came up with a new logo. Considering much of our work concentrates on using basic building blocks of pixels it isn’t hard to see where the inspiration came from!
While we are still yet to comprehend the utter devastation caused by the tsunamis in Asia, one thing that is clear is that the relief effort is going to be lengthy and will require the assistance of as many people around the world as possible.

With more clients and much larger projects to work on, Constructive Media is starting to build a renderfarm. In probably the most irrelevant analogy used yet-to-date, you can picture a renderfarm as a herd of cows aimed at destroying the weed-like pixels. A single cow can eat a pixel alone, but a team of cows… Read more »
If the rumour mills have it right, Constructive Media is about to launch something big!

What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than to be 27m up in the air over Hay Street, held up by a cherry picker! Constructive Media was asked to provide high-resolution panoramic photography for an eight storey property development for Aria Land, so we called in long time friend and professional photographer Jon Davison,… Read more »
As part of ArtRage 2004, Constructive Media produced images for Fringe Architects at the 4 under 3 over exhibition at the Breadbox Art Gallery. These images baffled visitors who thought that the computer-generated images were photos of a real physical model!
