Ian Ibbotson, BA (Hons) LA Dip LA CMLI, Director, New Visual Solutions
New Visual Solutions specialises in the use of industry standard 3D modelling and animation software to produce high quality photomontages, design visualisations, animations and interactive 3D models. Particular skills include modelling infrastructure, industrial, energy, minerals and landscape projects, showing how these proposed developments would appear in the landscape and preparing visualisation outputs for assessment purposes.
New Visual Solutions Ltd started life as Key 3D Ltd, one of the Key Systems Group of Companies based in Redditch, in 2002. Over a period of 6 years Ian Ibbotson together with programmer Neil Higgins produced over 40 application tools for Autodesk 3D Studio Max modelling and animation software for infrastructure and landscape modelling. The application software, including training and support, was supplied to over 50 environmental planning and multi-disciplinary practices throughout the UK. In 2008 he started to focus purely on visualisation bureau work and the company was renamed to New Visual Solutions Ltd to reflect this change.
