Our History
Originally opening our doors in 1999 by our CEO & Founding Director Janine Tijou, we are an independently owned and run partnership of key visual and marketing communications specialists.  
Realm is managed by heavyweight directors - each highly experienced in their respective fields – who work alongside dedicated teams of visualisers, animators, graphic and motion graphics designers, film producers, videographers, interactive specialists and creative consultants to deliver class leading solutions for our clients.
Over the past 17 years, we have worked across some of the most high profile future-built projects both in the UK and internationally and have built up an enviable and loyal client base, establishing a reputation for creative and technical excellence.
Our Focus
Passion for what we do and a can-do approach are givens but clarity of thinking and technical know-how, combined with quality of execution are our bywords  - everything that we do is driven by the desire to deliver the very best for our clients and to maximise return on investment. Our clients tell us that they enjoy the personal,  professional and pro-active service that only a well-drilled team of experienced practitioners can provide.
What we do
We communicate future-built visions of what could be, using 3D, CGI, animation, motion graphics and film, coupled with heavyweight brand marketing expertise to create compelling, integrated communications.  We work with planners, developers, architects, urban masterplanners, visual impact assessors, investors, brand directors and regeneration specialists across a broad spectrum of multimedia platforms.
