Stuff I’ve Been Working On Pretty Recently.

Been off for quite awhile. Been having job interviews almost every week with no success 😦 But alas! I just keep moving forward and onto the next job. 🙂

So these are some of the things i’ve been busy doing. I’ve had a few clients on the side whilst in the middle of all these interviews, and here are some of the stuff i did for them:

Nothing like a little Kate Upton to get rid of Designer’s Block.

Disclaimer: Kate Upton’s picture is not mine. Got it from GQ Magazine. 🙂

 

It’s inevitable. Sooner or later, every Designer (whatever kind of designer you are) you’ll come across something called “Designer’s Block” wherein nothing just seems to look artful. No matter what kind of cozy, air-conditioned room you may go, how many cups of coffee you take, and how many genres / artists you switch to (from Boyce Avenue to Bach or Beethoven to Eminem) Nothing just seems to boil and conspire into your brain.

But alas! What i did to vanquish the boredom that slowly seeps and infects my brain? Mostly just browse through sites like Abduzeedo or Deviantart and try to look at other people’s works. Tumblr also works! And then just browse and browse until something looks do-able (that’s what she said *wink) and you’ve got yourself a one way ticket out of the City of Designer’s Block!

Now i’m not saying that this can apply to everybody, There are a thousand ways to do it. But i think the most common one, that seems to make sense is to step out of the box. For example like think of something ordinary, and keep asking questions as to how to make it extra-ordinary or bizarre or epic. Your pic! Just get out of that friggin box! 🙂

Oh and yes! Here’s what i did to rid myself of writer’s block:

Daddy’s Home. :)

So i came back after a few months of inactivity. I actually got a job recently so i somehow got inactive for quite sometime. So now, slow and steady, since this is my portfolio blog, i’m trying to update this more often that now since most of the jobs i am applying to looks at some of my works at how credible i can be. So! here’s something that i have been cooking yesterday:

 

Fight Boredom Now!

Fight Boredom Now!

 

I made a friend from work who was really good at singing. He even had a studio at his pad where he can record his songs and posts them on social sites or sells on iTunes. lately he hasn’t made some because he needed more advertising, and he’s going to be a lucky(? haha) father soon. So a lot has been going on in his life, that i asked him if he wanted some logo’s designed for his music thing. He said yes, and here are some of the logos that he liked:

Fresh Gentlemen 1

 

Fresh Gentlemen 2

 

 

Fresh Gentlemen 3

Look, he’s a really good singer, and if you want to know him more, his facebook can be found here.

 

Well, i’m currently updating my resume now, and i hope things go well. Wish me luck! 🙂

 

Boredom turns into two posters. Not Bad.

So i was on the verge of boredom, and i had a sniff of the real world today. Finally got out and went walking and dawdling around at SM. And when i got home i made these two posters. 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Though i’m not really going to prom later, i’m going to my cousin’s 18th Birthday. Hooray! Free Food! 🙂

I joined a poster-making contest, way back. And i had this made out of a few Grunge Wallapapers, then added some touches that i learned from some tutorials in the Internet. This is what came out of it:

Turned out pretty awesome, but it was a tough competition. Alot of people were really, really good. So yeah, eventhough i didn’t win, i still liked the output of this. 🙂
