Our goal has always been to create the best work possible by integrating design with high-end visual effects tools. Now, no matter what the project, Radium can create a piece from beginning to end using the most advanced technology and the most talented people."

With the diversity of background experience and the ability to work in many different mediums, the division will be able to apply a variety of techniques depending on what is best for the client. Clients can choose to have one designer or have several work together to create the optimum look for each piece.

The designers have the unique ability to work in tandem with other Radium artists in the 3D department and with compositors, as well as work in After Effects.
