Smart software for creative people

The Foundry in Design from The Foundry on Vimeo. Our software solutions are anything but ordinary. The workflows they create serve multiple industries and generally make doing creative things a walk in the park. We know that tools in VFX are also relevant to designers and vice versa. It’s that understanding that helps us to develop flexible, open products that solve problems. The portfolio is as creative as it is technical, packed full of groundbreaking award-winning techy goodness that will have even the most demanding organization or one-man-show salivating.

Release your creativity

From product design and engineering to visualization, art and imagery for marketing and advertising, we have customers using our software to create amazing illustrations and objects all around the world. MODO is used extensively for all kinds of design work. Its speed and ease of use allow designers to embrace 3D and speed up their workflows immeasurably. MODO’s powerful renderer also provides instant feedback and produces life like design communications before they are made ‘physical’ for marketing purposes. MARI and NUKE are also popular choices in this arena for large scale texturing and image manipulation.
