My name is José Antonio Cano, I am an architect, 3D Designer and Motion Grapher. I have experience as an architect, interior designer and ArchViz at several architectural offices in London, Estepona (La Costa del Sol) and Madrid, where I have been working on quite a few projects from concept design to construction, but mainly working on 3D visualization with 3D Max + Vray, making models, lights, materials and its Photoshop and After Effects PostProduction, including softwares and PlugIns such as ForestPack.

I have also studied a Master in Motion Graphics, 3D video and Art Direction at CICE in Madrid, where I have become an expert at using Adobe After Effects and Cinema 4D + Arnold for PostProduction, Motion Graphics and 3D video in a professional framework. My knowledge of Cinema 4D includes also using Mograph and C4D hair.

Before studying my Masters, I have always been interested in ArchViz and 3D, mostly self-learning, so I am really easy going at picking up new kinds of related softwares fast. This self-study time has given me deeper foundations in the field as to know the base concepts of how these softwares work, hence learning other kinds of softwares or renderers such as Corona or Octane comes quite easily.

I am currently working in an architectural office in Madrid as an 3D archviz, and apart from that, my last works include a full marketing campaign for the furniture brand Moanne Design, including a set of still visualisations of some of the most important pieces and a 3D video for its social media and website.

Because of being an architect in addition to a Motiong Grapher and 3D artist, I can provide another point of view to general visualisations, not only for archviz. It has given me the skills to model easily in 3D software from 2D plans and understand the concepts according to space, scale, light and materials. In my videos and still visualizations, I do not just want to show a beautiful picture, my desire is also telling a full story, which makes the viewers experience the space they are watching and feel its atmosphere.
