About Blank Canvas Studios

We’re one of Australia’s leading architectural visualisation studios, with teams in Sydney and Perth.

We’re also part of Vection Technologies, a dynamic global business striving to revolutionise the world of real-time VR and XR.

We strive to create emotional connections between people and places yet to be realised. This means that beyond the faithful representation of beautiful architecture, we seek to convey feelings and moods with every image.

We’re now looking to expand into Italy; to build an extension of Australian team, with Senior and Junior 3D artists who are as passionate as we are.

Headquartered in scenic Cassano d’Adda, Italy, with direct connectivity to Milan, Blank Canvas Italy (BCIT) will be our new creative hub in Europe, offering 3D artists the opportunity to work on iconic local, and international projects – from Australia, the US, the UK and the Middle East.

We’ll also be working closely with the Vection VR development team to bring still our arch viz images and animation to life in immersive, photo-realistic virtual reality.
