So the time has come. It’s January, the month which brings the most depressive day of the year. (wiki)
For us, it’s the most busy time of the year with the most jobs through the whole string of 12 months, so there’s absolutely no time for negative thoughts like this.
It’s been a while since my last post, which was published last year… let me give You some updates :)
So what happened since last year? A lot I’d say. This was the most productive time ever. Besides new office and some great people for our team we also participated in an exhibition and opened our first Learning Center in Brno.
Photo of the building where we got this great office during Summer ’13. It’s called CENTRUM and is located in the center of Brno. We have a coffee machine, so if You are near, feel free to stop by for a little conversation :)
We rented two offices on the top floor and joined them together to maximize the space for our activities. My awesome wife Veronika designed the interior of the new office. It follows her clear and simple style. Minimalism and wood joined together creating stunning modern atmosphere and great environment to work in.
Composition is supported with two black armchairs and small black conference table in case we are waiting for rendering or eating sweets after lunch.
All of this happened because we wanted to open our own Learning Center where all creative souls could meet and learn together.
Our first workshop started on September 22nd and it was really awesome! Great people came to join us, and we spent an awesome time together. Besides learning during the day, we hanged out every night for some famous Czech beer and food :)
What also happened during last year was that we got 2 interns – Lukáš and Štefan. Lukáš joined FA for summer time, while Štefan replaced him in September. Together with both guys, we finished some personal and commercial jobs and got some great images for our portfolio.
In November we got approached by the Gallery of Architecture in Brno and we were asked to create set of images for Ing Arch Ivan Ruller. The architect created more than 600 projects through his lifetime and most of these projects remained unrealized. Our job was to show some of these buildings in a photorealistic way, so also a wider audience was able to recognize the shapes, materials and compositions from these projects.
The exhibition took place in the Gallery of Architecture in Brno and will continue later this year in Ostrava and Prague. Working on this set of images was a great topping on the cake of last year, as we have never worked on something so refreshing while having such a free hand over the whole process. This job was completely without feedback and the architect loved the images, can an artist ask for more?
Check out more images in our portfolio.
This year (2014) will be in the sign of changes as well – we’re planning to rebuild our main website and there are also some discussions about changing the workflow (That sounds boring, but You’ll see later what’s happening ;) )
