Matthias Zabiegly is a veteran 3d artist who has gathered more than ten years of industry experience. He is currently working as Head of 3D and Set Supervisor at Aixsponza GmbH in Munich.

Aixsponza is a medium sized 3D Design Studio located in Munich / Germany. We put a strong emphasis on the Design part of 3D renderings, trying to get the best looking imagery out of all briefings that we get. We develop concepts, get our hands dirty in the story phase, create moods and layouts, pull off the production until the masterfile is ready, compose the music that fits your new visual way of life and we love to geek. The studio likes to work for all kinds of clients and industries and we are proud to have a real diverse portfolio ranging from design gems to technical renderings to trade show backgrounds to art pieces.

For 15 years Matthias Zabiegly has been spending his workdays sitting in front of a computer, pushing buttons in a 3D program. And even though this is a rather frightening number of years he still feels as ethusiatic about his profession as he did on his very first day. Getting his feet wet as a freelancer for Animationsfabrik and Pictorion das werk he put his rendered pixels on the big cinema screen for a few feature films before diverting into the fast paced and high adrenaline world of commercials. Starting at Aixsponza more than 10 years ago he has worked his way up to become Head-of-3D leading productions for various high profile clients. But even though the job descriptions on his business cards became more and more fancy over the years at heart he’s still that super excited boy who can’t believe he’s doing 3D for a living.
