i just settled my freelance with YCH group on their CNY Card design, will upload them soon once I receive the card delivered from them (: also, will be starting a freelance/project collaboration with someone who is setting up a shoe blogshop. she emailed me asking if im interesting in some shoe illustrations, sketching and photography which sounds really interesting so i took it! and i got another job in designing brochure for an upcoming dance concert which sounds exciting and TIDEOUS.

sometimes i dont understand why do i keep on accepting jobs that comes my way when school’s getting way too busy!!! maybe like what prof joe said, “it’s not that we’re so money-minded but time is money! and we need to feed our ricebowl!” agreed. and i’ll pull through i hope. HAHA (:

till then, continue to inspire, design and illustrate! peace.

know more about design.

was discussing a project regarding modernday issues with a friend recently, and the conversation led me into digging out an old passage which i scanned out for keeps seek, in the case of any instances like this where i chance upon it again and get reminded of what is it to design.

a manifesto by stefan sagmeister,

“i am mostly concerned with design that has the ability to touch the veiwer’s heart. we see so much professionally done and well executed graphic design around us, beautifully illustrated and masterfully photographed, nevertheless, almost all of it leaves me cold. there is just so much fluff: well produced, tongue-in-cheek, pretty fluff. nothing that moves you, nothing to think about, some is informing but still all fluff, i think the main reason for all this fluff is that most designers dont believe in anything. we are not much into politics, or into religion, have no stand on any important issue, when your conscience is so flexible, how can you do strong design? I’ve seen movies that moved me, read books that changed my outlook on things and listened to numerous pieces of music that influenced my mood. our goal for the future will be to touch somebody’s heart with design

ofcourse, it’s such an idealistic standpoint. but personally, a good reminder for me, as i feel that it’s so important to create meaningful graphics and designs and not just empty visuals.

after all the rushing of final projects for the sem, it was time to take a nice break in the december hols. but sorry for the delay in uploading my final projects. it just shows that i’ve been using my time very thoroughly to play and relax before the nx sems comes threatening again.

my final projects for graphic design and typography is uploaded in my graphics tab.

updated my illustration tab with some past work i forgot to put in.

updated my resumé with my latest cgpa too, not much of a difference actually.

and currently i’m helping a company design their CNY card, and flash, job i got from a goodfriend. and just did a mural painting with some friends as well, and did a small christmas proj/gift for my churchfriends (which i will upload SOON) and thats pretty much all the designing i’ve been doing this hols.
YEAR3, SEM2 BRING IT ON.
