All electric aircraft Maeve 01
Maeve Aerospace BV is creating an all electric aircraft to aim for zero emission aviation. Maeve is based at the YesDelft Incubator on the TU Delft Campus at the heart of aviation in the Netherlands. With a team of innovative Aerospace Engineers from across the globe, working hard on cracking the code to enable all-electric flight.
The Maeve 01 is the world’s first all-electric commuter aircraft for the mainstream aviation market. The electric aircraft is suitable for max 52 people and can fly up to 460 km. The loading time is estimated to be around 35 minutes and the battery needs to be replaced yearly.
There was only a technical model available during the development phase. The design was not completely developed and Maeve looked for a way to convince the public and potential investors of their innovation. Therefore Maeve asked us to collaborate with them on a strategy to visualise their ideas.
We brought the technical model to live by using a high end and realistic feel with different environments. Together with Maeve we decided which components are needed in which phase. Besides the full length animation we made social shorts, clickable loops, stills and stills in 4k.
As the design was not completely developed, texturing the model was challenging. Within that field of tension we focused on the visuals while Maeve could focus on developing their innovation. Throughout the development phases we created realistic assets to convince the public and potential investors of the innovation.
With a grand upgrade of the model, we were challenged to visualise the next level steps. Maeve determined the outlines for the model, we placed the new livery and made it as realistic and imperfect as possible. In addition, we have added all detailing from the nose of the aircraft to the door handles. For multiple internal components as engines and battery packs, we researched how it would look to modulate and texture them.
To make sure Maeve has the right materials for different purposes, we created and continue to create a variation of deliverables. Amongs other things, this included content for their investment presentation deck, brand new website, social media, yearly (unveil) events and more.
And with success, as it helped Maeve raise multiple investment rounds and international media attention. The company has now expanded the team with professionals from all around the world. Plus, Maeve has already received orders for 20 aircraft from customers like Air Napier (New Zealand) and Dutch startup Lucy.
