BIBLE HILL, N.S. —

You may not recognize John Alan Sperry but there’s a good chance you’ll recognize some of his work.
The Bible Hill man has helped create trailer wraps, product labels, 3D rendering of sites and virtual 3D event maps, and now he’s set up his own business – JAS 3D Visualization.
“I worked for print shops and did freelance work in the evenings,” he said. “The timing was right for me to put my energy into my own business. I like being creative and I want to try some new things”
Sperry’s work includes the Rock the Hub/Country Rocks the Hub trailer wrap, and renderings of the new Canadian Mental Health Association – Colchester Branch and Big Brothers Big Sisters

building, as well as the gazebo at The Lotus Centre. He’s also made a virtual 3D event map for MacKay’s Truck and Trailer Center’s open house.
“It’s fun to take a family member or friend through town and point out the projects I’ve been able to help people create,” he said. 
Heidi Patterson has partnered with Sperry to lend a hand. She oversees project development and marketing, assists with field measurements and site photography, and offers her experience with site development. She developed the concept and design of the Women’s Memorial Gazebo at The Lotus Centre.
“For local work, we can go onsite and get the vibe for what they want,” she said. 
“This is the only business I know of that’s doing 3D work right here, and people may not realize there’s someone here who can do it.”
Sperry said having a second person around, so they can bounce ideas off one another, also speeds up the work.
“I’ve really enjoyed the work I’ve done so far,” he added. “When you come up with a solution that makes someone happy it’s a good feeling.”
