How we work


Every Fat Pencil Studio project begins with a conversation. We work with you to develop a detailed understanding of the project, problems, considerations and desired outcomes. We bring a wealth of practical and technical knowledge to the table that enables us to identify the most effective strategy for achieving your goals.


Once we have determined the best course of action, we get busy using our considerable array of tools to realize your project. The resulting product can include, but is not limited to: digital 3d models, video, slideshows, diagrams, presentation boards, real-time graphics, interactive illustrations, and hand drawings.


We take an active role in making sure your presentation graphics are powerfully received. We offer real-time modeling and navigation for court cases, interview presentations, public meetings, and screen-sharing conference calls. We are available for test-runs, training, button pushing, and logistical and equipment support.


  • Fat Pencil Studio’s construction industry expertise was valuable at every stage of our project pursuit. They were with us for the initial site visit and all the way through last minute changes during interview prep.
