Brian Bradley is a self-taught 3D artist and business owner.
Brian started experimenting with creative software and 3D applications around the end of 1993, wondering whether or not he could make a living working with such cool tools! By 1998 he had started his own multimedia business, working on projects ranging from flying logos to graphic design for clothing and vehicles to entire product and architectural visualization projects.
While learning the tools of his trade, Brian developed a keen awareness of the need for well-explained, high-quality training that could make software tools accessible and open to anyone who wanted to learn them. In 2007 he turned the attention of his family business toward the full-time teaching of the graphic design and production tools he loves to others.
