Grip ( is a young service, but it has already attracted clients like Heineken or Nivea. It was launched by INDG ( to substantially automate visual things for manufacturers of physical goods.

What's Grip?
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 doing what it's doing based on photorealistic 3D, capitalizing on INDG 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 such.

What's inside Grip?
One can imagine that Grip is rather complex: it needs to render things quickly and photorealistically which presupposes some heavy engineering. But it's not just that. Companies like Nivea or L'Oreal produce thousands of things in tens of countries. The relations between everyone inside have to be managed within Grip. Who sees which images? Who's eligible to call shots on creative aspects of whatever is being produced? Which countries should get which products? It is a sophisticated system and so it needs sophisticated product management.
