Your time and money would be wasted! According to research, ignoring the value of attention to detail is the biggest mistake a 3D designer or animator can make. Only a few of us truly understand the value of attention to detail! It's the most crucial aspect of your design or animation. 𝐍𝐨𝐭𝐞: Only designing and modeling alone are not enough. Accurate textures and lighting have the power to transform a 3D design or animation from good to great. 🌟 𝟐) 𝐈𝐧 𝐌𝐲 𝟕.𝟓 𝐘𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐈𝐧𝐝𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐲 𝐄𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞, 𝐎𝐧𝐞 𝐔𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐧𝐢𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐑𝐄𝐕𝐄𝐋𝐀𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍 𝐒𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐬 𝐎𝐮𝐭:💡 Did you know?

Aesthetically pleasing designs play a significant role in increasing user retention and engagement. 𝐄𝐦𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐑𝐞𝐬𝐩𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐞: Humans are inherently emotional beings, and these emotions greatly influence our perceptions and behaviours. 𝐅𝐨𝐫 𝐄𝐱𝐚𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐞: If your design has attention to detail, your prospect will hold on and dive into the design. This emotional response can easily lead them towards purchasing your product. 🛒😊 It’s crucial to select a designer who knows and understands what’s at stake.
