Discover Benjamin, 3D graphic designer

 

What does your everyday job involve at HomeByMe?

I work on the content of the HomeByMe’s catalog. I create products, materials, and textures. Once they are created, I place them online in the catalog.  I create generic products and brand products as well. I help the developer team to improve the quality of 3D visuals.

What is your typical day ?

Depending on the timing, I model new products of our partner brands in priority, and then I model generic products to develop the catalog. The aim is to enable our users to create the more realistic interior as possible. I model trendy products or products, which are lacking for the catalog. Above all, products depend on feedbacks of our users! I have regularly meetings with the developer team to improve functionality of the catalog: for example to change illustrations of the paintings, or cushion covers.

What is your educational background?

At secondary school, I wanted to be a video games designer. That’s why during my last year at school, I took extra classes at the École des Beaux-Arts. After high school, I did one year of  preparatory class at the École des Beaux-Arts to join a graduate school specializing in video games (3years). I began to work on on-line car configurators before joining HomeByMe eight years ago.

What do you like better in your job?

What I like most is to work on a product, which is continually evolving. We are still reflecting about new functionality in order to help our users and to improve our software. And the thing I like the most is the fact that HomeByMe is available among the general public. That’s very useful because I use HomeByMe these days to create my future house !

Discover the Before & After of a 70s house!

How did your project start?

We were looking for buying a house with no renovation to do but we were not looking for a new house.

One day, we have seen a house, which does not fit exactly with what we wanted. But we don’t know why, we wanted to visit this house.

We discovered a house from the 70s, with an old-fashioned tapestry very far from what we like. However, when we came in the house, we have instantly imagined live here. We were ready to do renovation for this house without to know that sometime later we will break down all the walls.

What work did you do?

We have destroyed brick walls in the house to insulate with a glass wool, then we have covered walls with plasterboard. We have done all the insulation in the house and in our attic, we have also added a new bay window. We have painted all the walls, electricity and plumbing, bathroom and WC are refurbished

 

How has HomeByMe helped you in your project?

HomeByMe was very useful for us in our project, especially between our first visit of this house and when the keys were handed over. HomeByMe has enabled us to anticipate the renovation, to change, to modify and to confirm our ideas and to draw up our quotes thanks to the real sizes. And today, it’s a true pleasure to see that our project looks line for line to our 3D project. We have to create new rooms in our home and of course HomeByMe will be present
