Looking at photos of steel buildings this morning gave me the inspiration that I need to come up with a new design. It’s for a website that we’re redesigning and it needs to have a techie look with modern and clean lines and shiny surfaces. I have an idea now which I will draw first before putting it into my computer. This made me wish that I have the latest Wacom tablet so it can automatically transform my sketches into vector format. It will definitely save me a lot of time so I can work on other projects as well. But anyway, it’s four months more till Christmas so I’m giving my friends time to save up for my present.
I came across an article about your own personalized challenge coin. When I followed the link, I was surprised on how great the coins look. This seems like a great idea for corporate giveaways or tokens for small organizations and clubs. Just take a look at the samples below. I would love to have one designed for me and my friends.
I am gushing over the designer upholstery fabric that my client showed me today. He’s in the interior design business and I order for me to have a grasp of what he’s trying to do to his clients, he sent me some fabric samplers for some of the items that he’ll be selling online. He told me to get my design inspiration from the said swatches and to keep thinking out of the box for his website. This thought made me so excited to start some mockups because I already have a specific layout in mind as soon as I saw his fabric. Wish me luck! I rarely get creative projects such as this and I’m just ecstatic to show him what my design plan.
A client of mine needs to have a short commercial done but I have zero idea on the actual cost and the design process of making one. So I searched the net for video production companies until I stumbled upon Go2Productions.com. For a few minutes, I forgotten why I was at their web site. I just got distracted by their amazing portfolio and found myself clicking each and every sample clips. No matter how many of them I’ve seen, the next one always seem to be better than the last.
To give you a background, Go2Productions.com is one of those tv production companies that creates corporate videos, web videos, TV commercials, music videos, voice overs and virtual set designs. But according to their site, they are different in such a way that they have their own team of directors, script writers, cinematographers, 2d/3d motion graphics artists, compositors, audio/visual effects in one location.
I’m listing my top free directory web sites so I can submit my portfolio to them. Although I receive design projects monthly, I would like to widen my client base to encourage myself to try out new things. I’ve been so used to designing the usual, boxy company web sites that when a photographer contacted me and asked if I can show him some pop art type of artwork, I couldn’t produce any. The closest thing to pop art that I have is my portfolio web site which was created months ago.
I’d say I’m doing fine with my monthly quota plus my full time work. But since my earnings are okay, I should take it easy and do something more creative while I can afford it.
During your professional career, you may move through multiple posts and through multiple companies. With every career move that a person makes in her professional life, he or she ends up losing friends. With every forward or back ward move, she leaves hundreds of friends behind.
These are the friends who were your lunch mates or people who kept you company after office for drinks. They might be your employees or your boss. They might be the guys or ladies who you met around the office and shared a meal with, or they might be colleagues that befriended you during a water cooler moment. They also might be the people who you met during your pre-career stage in conferences or GMAT course classes.
Isn’t this the cutest? I keep seeing really nice Thank You Cards like this from the CardsPersonalized website. It may be more applicable as baby thank you cards but would fit well in a more informal wedding party too.

Whenever I see High School Graduation Announcements, I can’t help but wonder what it will be when it’s my turn to create high school graduation invitations. I’d probably ruin my make up just like what almost happened on Sandy’s pre-school moving up day.
But seriously, graduation is considered a huge event wherever you are. It’s shows not only the student’s success in finishing school but the parents’ as well. And how else can you ‘boast’ about your child’s achievement other than college graduation announcements? Read more
I really want an iMac. My brother’s company just bought him one and he won’t stop bragging about it. I was actually thinking of buying a Macbook Air but when I personally saw the new iMac from an Apple store here, I was just blown away. Charging it to credit card can get very expensive so I’m considering getting a cash advance instead. I heard the rates are much lower and you can get the money overnight. I tried one of those pre-approved requirements and found that I’m eligible up to $2,500. Not bad huh? I don’t need that amount exactly because I’d rather pay the 50% of total cost in cash. Anyway, I have to check my month’s earnings so I can see how much more I’d need to get my dream machine.
