PHOTOGR APHY IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT TAKING PICTURES.

In photography, vision is vital and control is everything. With images reaching more eyes through more mediums than ever before. Duggal Studios serves as an industry keeper-of-the-balance between optimization and integrity. CGI HAVING AN IDEA IS ONLY THE BEGINNING. CGI has brought the imagination-driven possibilities of traditional illustration into the technological world of 3D graphics. No longer is the creativity or utility of a brand’s ideas limited by 2D space. Blending calculation with artistry, we push the boundaries of photorealistic and stylized CGI while maintaining the creative aesthetics that make your brand unique. MOTION A BRAND SHOULD NEVER BE STATIC. People are innately captivated – even mesmerized – by movement. Why not turn this human reaction into a catalyst for engagement? From features to Facebook, we bring motion to your grandest visions, the finest details and everything in between. POST- PRODUCTION A MILLION MILES BEYOND “TOUCHING UP.” Duggal Studios hinges its value more on finishing. Instead of simply masking weaknesses, we seek to emphasize strengths and continually raise the industry standard for post-production.

are evergreen displays. Content updates are achieved simply by changing out SD cards and a slotted extrusion allows for edge-to- edge fabric graphics, resulting in a new look without replacing the core fixture. With RGB modules, lighting produces a full range of vibrant hues, these are visual displays that stand out. Content can be animated across the full color spectrum, as well as pure white on the same chipset for the ultimate “WOW!” White module lighting allows graphics to be animated by modulating density and luminosity in conjunction with a full color print for a more economical approach, while still retaining the wow moment. Create an atmosphere of pure distinction with the next generation of visual displays, combining graphic images and animated light to elevate the visual experience. Perfect for retail, exhibition and hospitality applications.
