Jonathan David Cole

3D Visualization for Designers.

Educated as an engineer from the University of Pennsylvania School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Jonathan Cole creates compelling photo-realistic imagery that captures the essence of an architectural or development project before it is actually built.  With over 7 years of production experience as a 3D artist, Jonathan worked as a senior visualization artist at HDR, Inc., a large architectural / civil engineering firm, in their New York City office.  Jonathan's renderings were crucial to winning many of HDR's project pursuit awards, most notable was the use of his work in winning the Tappan Zee Bridge design-build project, with a scope of $3.9 billion.  His iconic bridge aesthetic night rendering was featured during New York Governor Cuomo's "State of the State" address in 2013.  He has created HD content for various sectors of the architectural and civil engineering visualization industry, from residential interiors, to retail stores to large civil and architectural design-build projects.  In 2015 Jonathan and his wife Erin moved to the Blue Ridge Mountains and started JC3D, Inc.
