Terry Lin and Jake Liu founded Outer in 2017 on a mission to change how people spend quality time outside. The company is built on a foundation of bringing modern furniture outside without compromising quality nor design and style.

The Challenge
Under our partnership with Outer, we foresaw an issue as the company, and the product catalog started to grow, product photo shooting productions and retouching started to delay the delivery of campaigns on the website and other media channels.
The Solution
We provided the best solution while being cost-effective and maintaining top-notch quality. Our award-winning team of designers created hyper-realistic 3D models of the entire product catalog and rendered static and animated hi-res assets is record time.

These let us demonstate their catalog's unique value proposition. From product assembly and animations to close-ups and interactive assets.
