Guide to Bricks: Brick Orientations, Brick Sizes, Brick Bonds. A Brick Infographic for You.
Here's an illustrated guide we put together for Bricks, Incorporated to help educate their customers about some brick fundamentals. They have tons of brick products at their showroom and warehouse and wanted a single-sheet takeaway reference guide for their customers, who include contractors, architects, developers, and more.
I love the names given to these brick forms and orientations and patterns. They add such color to the language and hint at the histories and evolutions in building styles and methods. From Roman, to Norman, to Flemish Bond, the names kind of transport you to other worlds. And you thought it was just a humble brick.
