Clean Power Graphics: 3D Modeling for Graphic Design: Munters VariMax® IFRG Process Graphic. Explaining the principles behind heat exchange technology.

Working with John at CraneDigital was a great experience. He is an excellent listener and asks questions to clarify and better understand his customers needs. John is organized and always kept me informed about when I might be asking for something outside of the scope of work and what it would entail to do it at that stage of the project. He was open-minded ALWAYS and would bring my attention to things I may have missed otherwise. One of the things I valued most was having his expertise to help solve issues. I would highly recommend CraneDigital.

John Crane was amazing to work with. We needed some 3D product renderings of graphics to close a big deal. We needed it in short order. John was able to quickly understand the product, layout a plan, and meet our short and limited deadline. He was a pleasure to work with and the finished results were nothing short of exceptional. I would highly recommend!!!

“Trustworthy business partner who makes me look good to my boss.”

Over the past 12 years, I’ve had the pleasure of working on several company videos with John. He is my go-to person to create videos that are guaranteed to be a show-stopper.

When working with John, I am confident that the process will be painless and the final video of the highest creative quality. John is easy to work with, communicates well, and adapts seamless with my team. He keeps our projects on target and we have always met our deadlines and stayed within budget.

With each video John creates, I know the process will be another class act and the final video one I can proudly share with customers, colleagues, and most importantly, my boss. I’ve had the pleasure of being acknowledged by my CEO in a room full of people, more than once, because of the quality and creativity of John’s videos. It is always a pleasure to work with him as he’s a trustworthy business partner that makes “me” look good.

He’s a pleasure to work with.”

“There’s something different about CraneDigital.”

“John has been the most trustworthy 3D animation and video-production company I’ve ever worked with. Over the past 20 years, I’ve dealt with a number of video production teams and there’s something different about John. Frankly, he’s not a diva with some sort of big-shot, Hollywood-producer attitude. He’s down-to-earth and brings valuable ideas to the table that won’t break the bank. I’m always confident that any project that we hire John to produce will turn out great and his commitment to excellence will make me look like a rock star when my client watches the final product.

John’s been so easy to work with and his flexibility has made our projects painless and fun. I trust John, not only because of his incredible experience, but because he’s a man of integrity. He always stands by his word and impresses me with the way he conducts his business. If you’re wanting to work with someone you can trust, John’s your guy.”

“CraneDigital always steers us well and does what they say they’ll do.”

“We’ve worked with CraneDigital for more than 5 years and it’s always the same thing: They work hard to understand what we’re trying to accomplish, steer us well, then go the extra mile actually doing what they say they’ll do, and then some. CraneDigital is one-of-a-kind. With what the internet has become you never know what you’re going to get when you call someone – unless that someone is CraneDigital. For years John has more than delivered, he’s been great to work with: creative, does the highest quality work, is trustworthy, accountable… he even answers his own phone. CraneDigital is the whole package. Call CraneDigital. You’ll be glad you did.”

“Extraordinary. Simply the best.”

“John Crane is simply the best animator there is. His work is an extraordinary melding of art and technology bringing out the sculptural aspects of even the most mundane industrial objects. The animations John creates have such remarkable detail and depth that they leap off the screen to create an immersive experience. And then there’s John as a person: easy to work with, great sense of humor, visionary outlook.” 

– Susan B., Technical Writer and Producer

“Set yourself apart. Call CraneDigital.”

“CraneDigital did a very professional job in a timely manner, on budget, creating a marketing video that accurately captured our value propositions. It was evident that John did a lot of research on the industry and our business to create a unique and powerful marketing message. Throughout the project, John was very communicative and responsive and he was great to work with. We recommend Crane Digital to any specialty company trying to set themselves apart from their competitors.”

“Quality and attention to detail are beyond compare. CraneDigital saved us from making a half-million dollar mistake.”

CraneDigital has done graphic design and website design for me on two condominium projects. On the first project at WestFork Village their state-of-art renderings convinced us to redesign the rooflines and added tremendous value to the project. His quality and attention to detail are beyond compare and I would use him again.”
