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.
