About Us

Our Vision

SR is an independent visual design consultancy, committed to producing bespoke premium work with a unique personal touch, showcasing our clients products and services in the best possible unique and engaging ways.

SR was originally conceived in 2011 and during its relatively short history our business has developed a client base that would be the envy of much larger and older businesses working within our specialist industry.

The SR offerings cover a range of business areas including but not limited to:

  • 3D visualisation

  • 3D printing

We love working with people and forging long-lasting relationships, this allows us to fully understand our clients needs and therefore achieve the best possible outcomes. The SR approach centres on building teams around client projects to ensure that we only use the right people with the right specialist skills and knowledge for the right projects. As the SR business has developed we have attracted some of the best talents to work with us from around the world to meet our clients specific needs. This allows us to achieve the premium quality that we strive for, while being economical and achieving true value for our clients.
