FKD Studio

Market Presence: 

FKD Studio was established in mid 2015 by Nicholas King and David Fraher, with Ben Rappell joining soon thereafter.

Our collective aim is to create a studio environment that helps to facilitate the creation of compelling still images, architectural films and immersive VR environments for a broad range of public and private sector projects.

We are a multi-disciplinary studio, with a range of backgrounds, from architects to interior designers, to games artists and many more. We draw on many years of industry experience both in Australia and Europe to become one of Australia’s leading groups of architectural artists committed to the process of film and image making in all its forms. 

Much like architectural design, the image creation process is inherently collaborative involving input from a variety of specialists. This is best achieved within a studio by artists working together, encouraging discussion, sharing ideas and learning from each other as technology rapidly evolves. Whilst keeping up with the constantly updating technology, we like to stay true to our belief that what we do is an art as opposed to a science.

By drawing from a wide variety of creative disciplines we are in a unique position to be able to produce and direct everything in our studio, from story board sketch animatics, composed original music scores, animations, film, immersive VR (both mobile and tethered) and high end still imagery.

We love what we do and think that is reflected in our work.

Architectural visualisation: an art, not a science

While the rise of architectural visualisation technology may seem like a recent phenomenon, there is nothing new about visual communication in architecture. Illustration has always been a critical part of the design process, from testing of ideas in early stages to the presentation of resolved concepts to showcase the shared vision. The tools of the trade may have evolved, but the basic intentions remain consistent. New technologies have...
