The word about VR’s amazing capabilities is starting to spread. With VR becoming more affordable and widely available, more and more architecture and design businesses like yours embrace this technology. You can use VR as your go-to presentation, marketing, and training tool. The best part? You can compile all VR projects to build an extensive and comprehensive VR portfolio.
Why build your VR portfolio now?
Building your own VR portfolio today is ideal because most architecture and design businesses still use photos and videos. VR can help your firm stand out from your competitors.
Our previous clients who have built their VR portfolio have found out that VR is a better way to showcase their creations to their prospects. VR helps clients visualise their work and style. Communication is clear because they can see the design.
Your portfolio is your clients’ reference for future projects. It is to sell your architecture and design services without it.
With a VR portfolio, you are showing your previous projects rather than telling your clients about it. There is no ambiguity.
Tips on starting your VR portfolio
It can be tricky to create this kind of portfolio, especially when you have many VR projects to show. If you’re planning to start soon, take note of these tips:
#1: Don’t hide the process
We understand that you only want to show polished VR projects to your clients. But, you should know that all the content you have created for a project deserves a spot in your portfolio.
We highly encourage adding an article, showing 3D images, revealing sketches, and sharing the overall process of developing the project. Tell the story behind the beautifully rendered scene. Show your creative process. Your clients will appreciate the greater glimpse of the project.
#2: Include all your projects
It is also okay to show all VR content that you have created in the past — even if the project didn’t get built.
You can still share the VR project from a previous client even if they didn’t buy the design. It is disappointing to lose a client, but you shouldn’t let your rendering efforts go to waste. The VR material still shows your abilities as a designer and is beneficial to your future clients.
#3: Engage in an expert VR service company
Your VR portfolio should be extensive and ever-growing. To do this, you need to invest in VR technology. You can outsource talent/experts or hire an in-house VR developer who can represent your designs accurately in VR.
Outsourcing is a great option, especially when you know people who are truly great at what they do. Plus, when you outsource your VR projects to companies, you know that their sole focus is the project you gave them.
