I’m Will Gibbons
I’m a product visualization specialist. Not sure what that is? I wrote about that here. While earning a degree in industrial design I became a minimalist, so I pursued a career in creating digital media rather than designing physical products. I believe in having a strong locus of control and that hard work pays off. My career has taken me from Michigan to California to Pennsylvania to New York and back to Southern California where I live now.
2016 – I became a Global Training Specialist at Luxion, the makers of KeyShot. Teaching design teams across the world (Apple, Bose, Dell, McLaren, P&G, Spin Master, Tesla) how to make product renderings is where I built a passion for CGI.
2019 – I left Luxion and hung out my shingle offering product rendering and animation services to companies like 3M, Novation, Peloton, TTI, Vizio and Whipsaw.
2021 – I retired from freelancing to focus on teaching people who, like me, need to feel creative and inspired to lead a fulfilling career.
Throughout my decade-long career, I’ve felt the most fulfilled teaching others. I love learning about art, design, technology and business. After combining these interests and honing my skills, I’ve been able to earn a living doing something I enjoy on my own terms. My mission is to help you earn a living doing what you love, on your terms.

What are your computer specs?
I wrote an article and made a video about that here.
How can I contact you?
If you’re into backstories and such, then the video below will give you a pretty clear idea of how and why I ended up where I am now.

Below you’ll find a collection of personal and client work. I’m a product designer by trade, but focused on using CGI to create promotional product launch media such as renderings and cinematic product animations.
