Creative Director - Architecture, Crystal CG International
Ximo was initially trained as an architect before moving into architectural visualisation in 1997. He lived in Holland for 3 years, teaching at TU Delft and working at DPI Animation House before moving to London and joining Hayes Davidson.
In 2000 he joined Smoothe working on many large scale animations and film projects across the UK and worldwide. Most notably Ximo liaised with the London 2012 bid team, delivering the CGI and co-ordinating an extensive team to create imagery and film sequences that very simply, yet effectively communicated the Olympic vision to a global audience.
Other projects Ximo has delivered include work for Mercedes Benz to launch the new Mercedes Benz World at Brooklands, Orchid House and Lower Mill Estate, which featured in BBC2's design show and several large scale productions that incorporated green screen studio shoots for projects in the Middle East. Ximo regularly lectures and presents to students as well as architects on the language and techniques of visualisation in the construction industry. Ximo also wrote a chapter for Brian Smith's "3ds Max 2008 Architectural Visualisation-Beginner to Intermediate".
