Picture Plane is a digital imaging studio run by architects. The studio produces visualisations and animations that go beyond photorealistic representation to communicate the atmosphere and ethereal qualities of unbuilt spaces.

Picture Plane was established in 2007 by Jörg Majer and Maria Fulford. Collaborating with architects, artists, designers and engineers the studio constructs images through conversation and creates a strong narrative behind each piece of work.

A small team of talented visualisers, all with a background in architecture, work alongside Jörg and Maria to produce a diverse range of projects.

Join Us...

Picture Plane is looking for an architectural visualiser to join its team in Dorset, UK.

Ideal applicants should have a good understanding of 3D space as material, atmosphere, light and narrative. Applicants should show a creative passion for architectural representation through drawing, photography, collage and animation. The role also requires an ability to run projects, communicate with clients and manage tasks individually or as part of a team.

The studio is based in a converted barn on a beautiful 60-acre farm surrounded by fields where we are planning to construct a number of self-built projects which will eventually provide a self-supporting environment.

We are looking for applicants interested in working in a rural environment that offers the opportunity to combine digital image making with physical construction and outdoor pursuits.

Skills and experience:

  • proficiency in 3ds Max, V-Ray, and Photoshop
  • knowledge of Corona, After Effects and Nuke are desirable, but not essential
  • minimum of one years’ work experience in a similar environment
