Depiction is an illustration studio offering architectural renderings based in traditional media. Serving as one of only a few traditional media studios in the country, our artists work hand-in-hand with design professionals, developers, cities, and other organizations to tell the story of their projects.


Our artists have over three decades of experience, which allows us to identify and craft the visual narrative and present it through artful, engaging imagery. We pride ourselves in our ability not only to serve as an architectural visualization service, but to collaborate as part of the design team, inventing architecture and conceptualizing the public realm.


The illustration process has evolved into one of flexibility, efficiency, and collaboration. Having expertise in traditional media has provided our artists the ability to tailor technology into a digital work flow which is intended to reflect the qualities of traditional media. This allows us to deliver hand-crafted visuals, both quickly and economically, in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment.

We offer a variety of products and styles. Our main intent is to provide top quality renderings that have a soft touch. Each element within the image has been thoughtfully edited to it's simplest form.


Our services are steeped in the traditional arts. Our background is traditional media, place making, storytelling and architectural invention. Today we are utilizing a wide variety of digital and traditional methods to achieve a quality product that meets the needs of our clients.
