Aspiration, Innovation, Collaboration - three words to summarise what Orbital Vision is all about. Get to know how we started!

Based in the centre of UK manufacture, Long Eaton, we have been a constant presence in the furniture and interiors industry since our inception. Being surrounded by multiple furniture and interior businesses has meant we were able to first grown our client base locally, which over the years has led to multi national and international clients.

Our Managing Director, Rob Walker, started his career within the industry as a photographer and quickly learnt the limitations within it. Trying to showcase a product which consists of multiple shapes and sizes and comes in an endless array of fabric combinations, is incredibly difficult, more-so impossible, unless you have a bottomless pot of money and time! A large job for Debenhams/ Sleepeezee, that consisted of photographing and photoshopping together hundreds of SKUs, was the nail in the coffin for photography for the Orbital MD.

After teaching himself the basics of 3D, and employing a CGI artist, a designer and a web developed, the Orbital team was born. After starting as a team of 4 in a box room, the team expected we would need to expand fast, so soon moved into our current studio (opposite Harrington Mills on Leopold Street) in 2018 and have only grown since. Now a team of over 20, the team has grown exceptionally well over an 8-year period and continues to do so.

Rob Whotton, our Creative Director, has been here from the start, working alongside Rob Walker to grow the team and business into what it is today. With a background in design, Rob has a great eye for styling, excellent for helping develop the quality of imagery the team creates an assisting our clients web design.

Sarah Pilkington, our lead CGI Artist and 3D Manager, has also been here from the very beginning. Sarah started within the world of 3D back in 2015 after specialising in 3D in her final year at university. Sarah developed her skills here at Orbital, learning on the job, and through a lot of extra practice and hard work within her own time. Sarah, who is deaf, has not only grown her skillsets in CGI, but has also overcome tough day-to-day challenges – from starting in somewhat of a junior position, Sarah now manages the largest team in the studio, 12 CGI specialists – we could not be in safer hands.

Alice Clarke, our Sales & Marketing Director, started at Orbital in 2020, just after completing her degree in Fine Art, as a Junior Account Manager, and his since climbed the internal ladder to reach the position she’s in today. With a diploma in Digital Marketing, and the knack for organisation, Alice has helped develop the team, its processes, client base, and sales.

Our fantastic team are a recognised and respected agency within the industry for delivering exceptional, photorealistic imagery and marketing services. From starting out in producing still imagery, we now offer our clients animations, 3D Product Configurators, and endless imagery options. With the whole team being UK based, and a recognised BFM Business, we love to capture the overall message of British Furniture – we really are the Best of British.
