Animation studio Qurios Entertainment today announced the addition to its art team of Aled Lloyd. Aled has been appointed as Architecture & Environment artist for the studio, which specialises in art outsourcing for the games and television industries.
Aled was born and raised in Wales.

He also completed a Btec course in media production & communication visualization at Carmarthenshire College of Technology & Arts.
Having a passion for architecture and an enjoyment of computer games it seemed a natural step for Aled to pursue a career in games development. In his 7 years in the business Aled has worked on 10 game titles for several major game developers including Broadsword, Runecraft, Acclaim and Brat Designs.
Aled, aged 34, joins Qurios Entertainment from Brat Designs where he worked on the recently released PC title Breed. Aled was responsible for architecture & environment design and building whilst with Brat.
Qurios Entertainments Managing Director Niel Bushnell notes, “Aled brings a unique approach to environment model building for computer games and television production; his architectural training gives functionality and reality to his fantastic designs. Already Aled has overseen the design of futuristic cities and asteroid bases for two pop videos. He is also creating tools and procedures that will be of great use to some of our game development clients.”
