GROWING STUDIO, GROWING SPACE
We are gearing up for an exciting summer. The studio is growing and so is our space along with new floors, new paint, new workstations. The only thing left is some new artwork!
NEW IDENTITY AND STUDIO SPACE FOR HARTNESS VISION
April 2015 Hartness Vision has evolved into Design Distill.
This new title embodies our constant pursuit to, well, "distill" ideas into images... for architecture, landscape, and urban designs.
At one key point in this naming process we chose to remove the comma between the title words (so as not to imply something else) and remain on task. That may change over time, but for the moment our collaborations are exciting. We are taking over additional space in the same address
Alex Hogrefe, artist extraordinaire, has become partner of Design Distill LLC. Alex continues expanding his blog http://visualizingarchitecture.com/
Jay Hoelle joined our ranks a few months ago, and has made us more streamlined and efficient. He has picked up our coffee-drinking habit very well, so we can tell big things are in store.
LOOKING FOR TALENT. AGAIN.
We are once again searching for fantastic visualizers
Hartness Vision (soon to be Design Distill) is looking for artist-architect-designers. For immediate opening.
Expert-level experience in Photoshop, Sketchup, and VRay required. High proficiency in Rhino, 3DS Max and/or Premiere appreciated. Good sense of humor imperative. Send to ahartness (at) designdistill.com
LOOKING FOR TALENT
Interesting viz on the horizon...way too much for us alone.
Hartness Vision is looking for artist-architect-designers. For immediate opening. Must have prior experience in visualization, and love of deadlines. Massive expert-level experience in Photoshop and Sketchup required. High proficiency in Rhino, 3DS Max and/or Premiere appreciated. Good sense of humor imperative. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org
HARTNESS VISION WELCOMES NEW DESIGNERS
Alex Hogrefe has joined our viz family as Associate. He is the talented creator of alexhogrefe.com and an accomplished designer. He brought a new coffee maker to sustain our caffeine habit...words cannot express our appreciation.
Carolina Lubatti brings years of visualization talent with her - and hopefully will teach us some bad words in Argentenian Spanish. When we run out of coffee, Caro keeps a stash of mate handy. Like!

VISUALIZING A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE
As de-facto designer for the undead, HartnessVision produced a virtual rendition of San Diego’s Petco park for The Walking Dead Escape http://www.thewalkingdeadescape.com/ The design firm also produced faux news urgent graphics to corroborate suspected zombie incidents.
Hartness Vision had little competition, since everyone else had been eaten or infected. And just as "walkers" will trudge and lurch toward world take-over, so will this evolving image of San Diego stadium (Petco Park) reflect the pending apocalyptic inevitability of destruction and doom, in 5 stages.
