Last weekend, we held the first #BRPW aka the BrickVisual Post-production Workshop consisting of some lectures and lots of practice with the supervision of senior 3D artists. In this task, the team had four hours to do the post-production of a raw render, and the results are.. well sometimes beautiful, sometimes sophisticated and often quite mental. In general we can say that imagination deserves five stars! Enjoy

A white render or a clay render is a very handy initial phase that shows the visual in its purest form. It is quick and informative and it gives a good understanding of the composition and the light set-up. Besides its efficiency, we think a good white render can be absolutely gorgeous on its own, without getting lost in the details. Yet, these remarkable stills usually get lost in the production pipeline, as the focus is on the final image. It is therefore we put together a little compilation of these white renders where architecture, composition and purity rule.
Due to an increase in projects and client commitments, we are hiring skilled and dedicated Senior 3D Artists to our architectural visualization company.

We have done lots of victorious competition visuals for architecture studios lately, and the time has come for us to enter that realm as well…
It is a pleasure to see that larger media outlets like Architizer open up to the ever more significant art of architecture visualization. The Modeling & Render category in this year’s A+ Awards – with special focus on visualization qualities – is a great example of that approach. We applied with two projects, and the results are ecstatic: Sosnowiec Sports Complex is among the five finalists and Oulu Station received a Special Mention Award. This is already a huge recognition for us in the architect world.
Winners are out on the 11th of April. Meanwhile, you can participate in the public voting until the 30th of March: https://goo.gl/zCAIOi
Sosnowiec Sport Complex visualized for BakPak Architects & EOVASTUDIO
Oulu Station visualized for Lahdelma & Mahlamäki Architects | 1st prize at architecture competition
We hope to share good news after the winners are announced!
Brick Visual has been rapidly growing in the past years, making one of the largest architectural visualization teams in the industry. In the past few months a lot of new colleagues have joined the company from all over the world. Find out more about András, Csaba, Donatas, Dima, Matei and Zsolt. Welcome guys, we wish you a lot of tremendous experiences at Brick!
P.S.: We are still growing, and thus looking for skilled and talented 3D Artists in senior- and mid-level positions! For more information check out our job post.
Donatas got his MSc as a Product Designer at the Vilnius Academy of Arts in Lithuania. During his first years at the academy he discovered 3D graphics, and understood that this creative segment is one of the most powerful ways to convey one’s ideas to people. Since then he has worked as a 3D freelancer with several architectural studios, designers and game developers. Another big part of Donatas’s life is travel photography, more specifically abandoned industrial places. He loves the smell of history, challenges in life and new discoveries.
Given his masters degree in architecture and passion for visual art and technology, stepping into the world of architectural visualization was a very natural step for Matei. When he is not trying to further develop his skills in archviz, Matei is probably out climbing, trying to play an instrument or riding his motorcycle somewhere in the mountains.
Zsolti is an architect by profession with work experience in the Netherlands and Switzerland. After graduating he started working as an architectural visualizer since it was a perfect combination of architecture and his other passion: photography. He joined Brick to be able to develop his skills further and to experiment with the latest trends and technologies that will define the industry in the future. He’s a keen sportsman who enjoys rowing, skiing, hiking and playing tennis. He is also interested in space exploration and quantum physics.
Dima earned his Bsc in Architecture at the Lviv University. Meanwhile he got to learn architecture visualization by himself, and practised his skills to help his classmates. The autodidactic interest soon became his profession – first as a freelancer, then at archviz studios. Dima’s hobby is his work, he cannot really separate the two. However every once in a while he grabs his camera to go out, and take pictures of the ’real’ world.
With a background in architecture, music, motion graphics and design, architecture visualization and 3D computer graphics soon became András’s hobby and later his passion. The creation of something beautiful is his fundamental goal and motivation, combining a wide range of tools and expression methods. While off work, András enjoys learning about new discoveries in science, playing the piano, guitar, and doing archery.
Csaba started his professional career at the architecture design office of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics as an IT assistant. Soon he had become a lead project manager and later started his own IT company. In the last 15 years he has delt with CAD design and programming, website building and webshop maintenance. Eventually he found his way in system integration, network building and server and desktop support because these are the most dynamic and flexible parts of the IT field. Besides his fascination for technology, he used to write hundreds of poems and won several awards with them. Nowadays in his past time he works on video editing projects and writes his blog passionately.
Dear Clients, thank you for the fantastic projects we’ve worked on this year!
Dear Partners, thank you for your outstanding services and the fruitful collaborations throughout 2016!
Dear Fans and Followers, thank you for your continuous support and feedback!
Dear Brick Team, thank you for your outstanding work, your awesome personalities, your will and ability to work toward progress and for all the memorable moments this year.
We say goodbye to 2016 with great memories, and we look forward 2017 with even greater dreams. Happy Holidays from the entire Brick team!
*The office will be closed from the 24th of December. We will return with fresh spirit and mind on the 2nd of January.
This conference season has become seriously busy! As the industry is growing bigger, such events become ever more important. We are digital guys and girls, but still there is great interest in knowledge-sharing, panel discussions and personal interaction. Or it is just because of the beer? 2016 put Brick on the fast-lane: we presented at two major events, brainstormed at a pioneer summit and visited some. Most importantly, we got to know many awesome people, and learned a bunch of new things.
Brick founders András and Attila held a presentation about Brick, in particular about our core production mechanisms. It was a tough challenge to condense all our thoughts in 1 hour, but the result was rewarding. d2 is a relatively young, but rapidly emerging event with always great atmosphere and amazing people. Check out Fabio’s vlog for some cool videos!

The Chaosgroup guys invited us to talk about our VR and software development at their annual meetup in Sofia. Attila and Peter, our developer gurus gave a smashing presentation for a large audience. CG2 is organized by Chaosgroup, the smart guys behind VRay. We made a lot of priceless connections, and hopefully future collaborations as well.

Watch the whole presentation
At d2 we got to know the famous Victor Enrich, who is the founder and spiritual father of this initiation. The basic concept is to organize summits for the archviz industry that is presently becoming sovereign and growing independent. He invited great minds to discuss really important and up-to-date issues, to share knowledge and to shape ideas. It has become obvious that everyone deals with the same issues, and such discussions help facilitating solutions beneficial for the overall industry. András was one of the participants of the panel discussions held at the impressive MACBA (Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art). He returned to the Budapest office in a very eager mood.

Last, but not least, there is one more event for this year: a two day workshop in Vienna held by Brick guys, organized by d2. András (CEO) and Marton (PM) are really cool teachers, we grant that! December 9-10, Vienna. Tickets are selling out quickly, so if you are interested, get yours as soon as possible.
Based on this year’s experiences, we are really looking forward 2017!
It has been a long time since we last moved out of the office, and forgot about all the polygons and renderbuckets for a while. Also, as the Brick team had doubled since our last long escape, it was time to get to know each other outside of the office. Hungary has many outstanding wine regions, and when autumn comes along with the season of grape picking, it is traditionally the celebration of harvest and wine. After visiting Villány and Etyek, it was time for us to test the hills of the historic town Eger! During the weekend, we visited the AÉS, Almagyar Cardinal’s Vineyard, where the owners took us on a fantastic wine-safari, and we got a taste of their pure, naturalistic wines. We also got the chance to unleash a bit of our adrenaline resources on the paintball battlefield. However the peak moment was the royal dinner Gál Tibor Fúzió served along with a selection of their wines. Absolutely stunning architecture and a stylish combination of traditional and modern. We had a great time in Eger, and will definitely go back!
And finally a large group of happy 3d artists having a prime time!
Our redesigned 2016 architectural visualization portfolio has already been published here, and we are thrilled to announce that just recently, the fresh and still crispy printed version arrived from the press! We took some photos to show you what it looks like in book format. If you don’t have the chance to flip through the book (for instance at the d2 Conferences in Vienna ), download the online version here!
