Every team, company, and community has its central fire and power. At Fireart, it’s Dima Venglinski, our Founder and CEO. On his Birthday, our team has prepared something special. Here we’d like to share our company’s latest achievements made under the guidance and care of Dima Venglinski.
Regardless of the coronavirus, lockdown, work from home, and other realities of pre-apocalyptic times, Fireart Studio has achieved a lot of amazing results, won new awards, received industry recognition from the global community, released prosperous projects, and amazed clients with innovative approaches to projects. Here we provide a brief overview of everything that happened at our company during 2020.
Fireart started 2020 celebrating our membership at the 100K club on Dribbble. This award is a significant trophy granted by the most famous global community for designers and creative professionals. We were very happy to hear that one of the “Dribbble balls” was shipped to our office in Warsaw.
This year, our sub-brand Fireart Games released a new game – TOHU. It is a modern adventure set against a mechbiopunk fishy planet backdrop where The Girl & her mechanical alter-ego uncover the truth about the mysterious Sacred Engine that powers their world.
We were super excited that TOHU was recognized as the leader in 3 different categories at Pixel Awards Europe 2020: Best Art, Best Audio, and Big Bang! It was also featured in the nomination “Excellence in Visual Art” at DevGamm Online 2020.
In the interview for Hacker Noon, Dima Venglinski told the story of the Fireart foundation and how the company revived like a phoenix from the ashes during a financial collapse in Russia in 2014.
The interview impressed the editorial team and readership of Hacker Noon so much that it was featured as the TOP Story there. Developers, designers, and entrepreneurs from various industries shared massive feedback on the interview and even sent direct messages to us, saying thanks to Dima for sharing this story and inspiring the community.
