We are digital artists, and create 3D digital models to reconstruct sites or objects.

We are specialists in creating imaginative illustrations and animation, and our main focus has been on historical and scientific subjects, for which we are well regarded.  This is because we pay special attention to detail and fully research projects, so that when we recreate a site/landscape/building/object, we believe it will be as accurate as is possible from the data available to us.  As well as the artistic element of our work, it can also be of added value for research/educational purposes in the understanding of a site as our 3D models match real world logistics.

Our clients include:

NASA, Historic England/English Heritage, Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, The History Channel, Dorling Kinderseley,

Granada TV, as well as many councils and trusts.  We also have our work syndicated around the world through the Science Photo Library.

Take 27 Ltd was established in 2002 and we have many years experience in creating illustrations and animations for a variety of clients.


We can create any building, site, product, concept or idea as a digital model for use as an illustration or animation for visual storytelling, education, demonstration, presentation, marketing, sales and web purposes.


We are accustomed to working with consultants and specialists, as well as conducting research and interpreting archaeological reports and CAD data.


A compact core production team ensures we can provide a cost effective service.
