Poplar is a platform that provides 3D and AR campaigns on demand. We activate a new generation of global 3D and AR creators and provide collaborative tools that make 3D and AR production affordable and quick for marketing and advertising. Poplar automates the 3D and AR production workflow, providing a self-service brief builder accessible to large brands, SMEs and the long tail.

After operating as a premium account managed marketplace since launching Poplar in 2018, we have enabled the creation of 110+ 3D and AR campaigns for top global brands, built a community of 1400+ global creators, and generated £700K in revenue so far, with £60K booked monthly since October. We are now scaling our service, having launched the world’s 1st ever self-serve 3D and AR campaign brief builder. We know that this new self-service will help educate brands and companies about the benefits of 3D/AR, while opening up 3D and AR campaign creation to SMBs and the long tail.
