Well, if we really need to put a label on it, we’re an independent design & digital studio. In all honesty we struggle to put into a few succinct words what we do without feeling like we’re selling ourselves short. But getting to the real nitty gritty of it, and much more excitingly, what we can do for you, would require a large pot of tea (gin) and some good cake!


We, being Sally Evans & Kim Farrall have, for all of our sins, worked within the creative industries for over 8 years; with experience spanning many disciplines, cities, countries and continents. It has been over the past two years that we started collaborating on projects that we realised how well that worked. We were able to question, push and support each other throughout projects resulting in a much higher standard of work and, more importantly, having a blooming good time whilst doing it.

That fabulous formula is now being used to work with some of you delightful people on projects that we all care about. We seek to work with passionate people, who care as deeply about their product/service as we do, people who want to make a difference and who aren’t scared to look at things differently and are willing to be taken a little off grid.

At Rust Studios we are experts in 3D visualisation, digital marketing and graphic design. Using cutting-edge technology, our experienced team of designers, visual artists and software developers deliver high quality creative solutions tailored for everything from PCs, tablets and smartphones to traditional print media.

Our aims are simple: to inspire and impress your customers, partners and stakeholders. And to win you business.

Design has evolved. The digital world offers exciting potential to turn an outline concept into an eye-catching vision, to grab the viewer's attention and communicate key propositions with high impact. With 3D, animation, interactivity and more, it's a whole new visual environment that can change perceptions.
We can help you make the most of the opportunities. We specialise in high-end architectural visualisations and animations/fly-throughs, working mainly for clients in the construction and property industries. However, our skills and resources are just as useful to other sectors, from advertising to travel.

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. That's why, at Rust Studios, we are totally committed to team working. We pool knowledge, share ideas and encourage lateral thinking to arrive at a solution which is not only efficient and effective, but if necessary can seamlessly combine different media into a cohesive, cross-platform campaign.

Our services include 3D CGIs, web design and development, digital marketing, brand insight, creative design and corporate literature. Whatever the brief, we will work closely with you to understand and achieve your objectives, as well as pro-actively driving the project to deliver on time and on budget. In fact, we want to exceed your expectations, so wherever possible we add value, giving that extra 10% of inventiveness or commitment that can make all the difference.

The benefits of choosing Rust Studios speak for themselves. You can be confident your project is in the safe hands of one of the UK’s leading 3D visualisation studios. You can rely on our creativity, expertise and dedication to ensure your project is a resounding success.
