Hayes Davidson is one of the world’s leading visualisation studios. Collaborative to our core, we partner with the most respected and visionary architects, developers, planners and agencies, to create exceptional ways to help them communicate their ideas and ambitions.

Our purpose is to help our clients visualise a better world, translating great design concepts into beautiful and compelling images, films and visual experiences that engage, inspire, and influence. We explore all the possibilities inherent in a brief, guiding a visual strategy for every stage of a project’s life.

Creative in both ideas and outputs, we are unconstrained by a house style, drawing on our experience to offer the most appropriate visual responses for an individual brief. We are passionate about democratising the built environment and are constantly developing new tools and techniques to support greater participation, inclusive decision making and informed debate.

Drawing on experience

Hayes Davidson is a pioneer in visualisation, widely acknowledged as one of the founding forces of our industry. Today, our ensemble team of creative specialists continues to embody our original values of creativity, innovation and fresh thinking established over 30 years ago by our founder and industry leader Alan Davidson.

Our experience, working with the most creative and ambitious clients on some of the world’s most ground-breaking and iconic projects, has given us an unrivalled body of knowledge on which to draw. From BIM to the Metaverse, from the Shard to the Highline, our work over the last 30 years has engaged with the big built environment issues of the day, shaping our understanding and helping define our futures.

Creative, collaborative, experienced

As an employee-owned business, teamwork and collaboration are at the heart of everything we do. We actively nurture a studio culture that results in the quality, ingenuity and exceptional service that our clients value. In a supportive, ego-free environment, we are free to explore ideas and focus on the most appropriate and creative solutions for each and every project.

Our people comprise a unique collection of skills and specialisms which we curate, project-by-project, to ensure our clients have the best possible team working alongside them. With an international team and a physical presence on 3 continents, we have fully embraced the potential of remote and hybrid working to offer our clients enhanced flexibility and responsiveness.

An exceptional working environment

Our strong founding values mean that we are committed to a supportive, friendly and inclusive culture, and to helping each and every member of our team reach their full individual potential. For us, a dynamic and collaborative studio is one in which everybody is encouraged to contribute and participate. We like to give something back and support a number of charitable initiatives including Article 25, Open City’s Architecture in Schools programme and HD5K, our annual run to support the work of MNDA. Many of our activities are generated and championed by our team.

As an equal opportunities employer, we are developing EDI initiatives at both studio and industry level to support professional access and training. We also run a paid summer placement programme for interns keen to get their first taste of working on live projects. We promote a good work/life balance and support flexible working.

Building new futures together

Our continued success is driven by our passion for creative collaboration, and our desire to expand our networks to embrace new disciplines, new thinking and new approaches. If, like us, you are passionate about what you do and would like to explore the potential of working together, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact our Creative Director David Bullock.

We value the skills and commitment of our team and provide exciting opportunities for personal and professional development at all career stages. We are always on the lookout for fresh perspectives and the next generation of ideas. Please note, as part of our commitment to EDI, Hayes Davidson operates a name-blind recruitment process.
