Richard Childs MSAI


I am the Creative Director of Chumleys Art & Illustration in the UK, established 3D Creative Solutions in the UAE and am a partner in VR Visuals Ltd. I’ve provided a comprehensive 3D design modelling service of high quality but affordable, civils and architectural visualisation projects across a wide range of industries and sectors for many years. These range from traditional hand drawn and digital sketching to state-of-the-art photo-realistic CGIs and virtual reality 3D digital model illustration and animated fly-through’s.

I’m not only an illustrator and animator, I’m a professional engineer with over thirty-eight years’ experience across many sectors and disciplines so fully understand your designs in technical detail. I’m a Fellow and an Incorporated Engineer of the Institute of Highway Engineers and the Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation. A registered professional in the UK, I have a wealth of experience of delivering multi-million pound projects in terms of design, managing design and project management teams and illustration which is now fully integral with the whole design process. Seen as design validation my 3D illustration models are also a cross-reference check of designer’s models in detail highlighting issues with designs saving time, effort and money early on in project delivery. We also provide animated RAMS Risk Assessments & Method Statement process videos for National Highways, their framework consultants and private clients.

It’s vitally important nowadays, to showcase our quality projects for publicity, media and design validation and there’s no better way to sell a scheme than through the power of illustration as you can see from the members here. Depending on the purpose, illustration may be expressive, stylised, or hyper-realistic; the aim is to give your project visuals narrative and a sense of place and project purpose.

Whether you are looking at the viability of your project, or wish to sell your ideas, concepts and vision to a wider audience, I can help you with communicating your proposals into quality and highly visual ‘virtual reality’ presentations as part of an integrated design process I offer.

Your project will come to life in a virtual world of movement and animation within your very own street scene in context with its surroundings. By adding your designs to a Virtual & Augmented Reality platform, that hyper realism environment puts the viewer into the scene well before construction commences on site.

Give me a call today and we can discuss your project in real detail.
