Grip ( is a fast-growing, recently released SaaS product, which has already attracted clients like Heineken, Akzo, L’Oréal and Nivea. It was launched in 2017 by INDG ( to fully automate the creation of visual content for manufacturers of physical goods.

In time, Grip will become a suite of web-based applications that automatically generate creative things like simple product pages or product videos. For now, only one Grip tool has been launched — Grip Still Shots. It does product images—which is no small thing: for instance, Coca Cola needs 400,000 of them every year. Grip is based on photorealistic 3D, capitalizing on INDG’s fifteen-year-long experience in that field. 3D is good because once your beer or your juicer or your rocket is on Grip, it can be used and re-used for multiple media: images, videos, iOS apps and so on.
