J•D•ZŸN is a graphics studio specializing in creating artistic digitally-produced architectural renderings and conceptual designs.
It was founded by Joshua Allen Donini, who holds a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from Miami University and is a member of the American Society of Architectural Illustrators.
The majority of J•D•ZŸN’s work comes from repeat clients and the recommendations they give their peers — who then go on to become repeat clients. Joshua is thankful to be the visualizer of choice for a number of local architects and developers who are working on projects all across Nashville and Middle Tennessee.
Joshua works from his home studio alongside his wife, Julie.
distraction inspiration is provided by their three kids: Calel, Anilyn, and Basil.
“Digital 3D modeling had only recently become accessible to architecture schools and firms when I graduated college. I was asked by my first employer what area of the profession most interested me. The answer was easy — 3D modeling and rendering! He told me flatly that was not the path to take and morale faded quickly. Fast forward several years to a new firm where I took on a visualization role and was thriving until the economic crisis forced drastic downsizing. While the building industry was readjusting, I was seeking to establish myself in the related field of graphic design. A timely introduction to an architect looking to market himself set me back on the path to architectural visualization. I’m thriving again.”
