Helping us bring some outside perspective today is our special guest Fraser Shiers.
One of our talented Jacky Winter artists, Fraser Shiers is an award-winning illustrator, and the founder and director of Forge & Morrow — a studio specialising in CGI and 3D illustration and typography. His works are playful and inventive, precise and detailed — utilising the 3D medium to skilfully compose images that blur the line between illustration and reality. Thanks to these skills, Fraser has produced work for the best of the best, including Telstra, Harley Davidson, Optus, VB, and Cadbury, amongst many others. He’s the man we often turn to when we need high-level technical advice about 3D, because his knowledge in this area runs extremely deep. And now we get to pick his brains on the podcast!
