”After graduation, rather than accepting positions at respectable businesses within the industry, myself and Joe offered to work alongside these companies on behalf of Wonder Vision in order to build a strong portfolio, client base, and income stream. Our early success allowed us to purchase the necessary infrastructure required, including servers and 3D software to further enhance Wonder Vision’s offering.”
”We built the company from the ground up, including entering competitions to help promote Wonder Vision. Joe is originally from Henley whilst I am from Nottingham, and our first base away from our home offices was in Nottingham after we won a creative business competition by submitting a thorough business plan. This entitled us to a rent-free office for the year, allowing the company to grow further without the need for massive investment.”
”We also entered an Autodesk competition whilst we were developing our website, that showcased the work of artists who used their software. We went on to win the competition, which resulted in a number of high-level companies contacting us about working for them. One of those companies being the iconic brand, Triumph Motorcycles – who we still work with today.”
After being welcomed into the Wonder Vision high street studio by James, I explored three floors of varying detail. Quirky features adorn the walls: a deer on the wall, a black and white Wonder Vision guitar, signed football memorabilia, and an array of music posters, including Band of Horses which I very much approved of. Everything about the studio is there to inspire its artists and make them feel at ease in a space where they spend the majority of their waking hours.
