How Vividly Realistic Images Build Community Trust in Signature Bridge Design

Latest Experts Talk Interview Explores Authentic Project Renderings
OMAHA, Neb. — HDR’s latest installation in its Experts Talk series features transportation project designer Jimmy Vincent sharing his unique artistic approach to depict projects as they will truly look and feel once built in their environment.

Community-driven bridge design pays attention to how bridges will complement their environment and how people will think and feel about them. Emotive, realistic visualizations further that approach by vividly demonstrating designs and promoting honesty in decision-making.

“I bear in mind lessons from cinematography — staged reality evokes thoughts and feelings. It compels the viewer to step into the image. The image is meticulously composed as well as true to life, with the effect of transfixing the viewer with the scene being depicted,” Vincent says. “In many ways our images are both a design tool and a deliverable. We use them in ongoing dialogue with designers, owners and communities as we develop the design.”

Jimmy’s project visualizations are scrupulously authentic in their depictions of not only the projects, but also their environment. He pays especially close attention to how users will experience the structures. His renderings help clients, project teams and communities imagine their future and understand how new infrastructure will change the experience for people who interact with it.
