"Low poly" cityscape/map

Advertising agency looking to get some renderings of a city (well, actually a region). Low poly is not necessarily an accurate description (hence the quotes), because the models are going to need detailing and textures that are not possible in low-poly.

Think the “chipotle” ads that came out the other year: http://www.fooddigital.com/production/chipotle-back-to-the-start.png http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/aMfSGt6rHos/maxresdefault.jpg http://www.washingtonpost.com/rf/image_606w/WashingtonPost/Content/Blogs/click-track/Images/chipotle-ad.JPG?uuid=Ep3ioFXuEeG9XrOUd6SebQ

This will be a static rendering(s - 2.5… one is just a rendering with the camera angle adjusted) for a DM that will be sent out to education people on a particular form of safety relative to their area. The DM will be printed and folded in the same format as driving/tourist maps. If you have ever been to a theme-park and seen the illustrated maps that show rides that aren’t to scale, that is what we are looking for. http://www.mappery.com/maps/Six-Flags-America-Theme-Park-Map.mediumthumb.pdf.png

I can give more details out once we connect, but unfortunately I cannot provide any more information on a public forum.

As a proud Blender user and supporter, I figured I should throw the opportunity out here on the forum and give someone who uses blender a shot, rather than just using the typical venders. I have reached out to a few production studios for quoting though, so you will be in the same mix for bidding.

With that said, this is a project with a proper budget and could potentially be pretty demanding (even though its just “3” images - always working with tight deadlines), so individual artists will probably not be ideal and it is very likely that they won’t be considered. Preferably teams, or, more optimally, studios would be best suited for this work.

I can be contacted at [email protected] for those who are interested and applicable, a link to work/portfolios and/or a sample of something similar to the above would be greatly useful to begin the conversation. I will probably come back and remove the email at a later time, so if you are interested, but are putting something together to email me at a later time, please save the email somewhere.


I would like to invite you to have a look at RenderThat [http://www.renderthat.com]. We just build up the first marketplace for 2D & 3D visualizations worldwide.

Our 3D Creatives are waiting for your contest!

I hope that RenderThat proves helpful for you!

I would think you could just use the cityscape Blender add-on for this. A city of varying poly-levels can be automatically generated using presets.
