Desktop wallpaper 13: Work in Progress

Sometimes it annoys me when someone gives his/her “constructive criticism” in the middle of my designing process. I think it would be cool to have a progress bar on my forehead saying “designing please do not disturb” . . . or then again maybe not.

Anyway I just created a progress bar wallpaper. Maybe next time when someone peeks behind your back you can show this so they will just keep their opinions to themselves until your work is done.

Desktop Wallpaper 012: Love that keeps on giving

Although a lot of women are expecting to receive gifts today (or in some countries men are expecting to receive gifts today) I on the other hand prefer to give gifts. Early this morning I gave chocolates to my colleagues, not the expensive ones though. Just to brighten up their day (mind you this is a gloomy valentine’s day).

And of course I won’t limit myself to the people I work with, If I’m going to spread the love then I should go world wide. So here another free wallpaper download for you guys.

Happy hearts day! 🙂

wallpaper size 1920 x 1200

Content is king

This is what my boss would tell us, and this statement is indeed true. This is not a theory this is a law that most clients, copy writers, and designers should know and apply.

I often get frustrated when some clients don’t give much effort on their content and expect me to come up with a brilliant design.

A good design without a good content is like a fireworks display on some random street show, it can “wow” you for a while and after a few minutes of dazzle you go home and forget what happened. You burn money for nothing.

Content is the backbone of the design. And the design will attract people to read the content. Design and content is a partnership. I’ve read an article a few weeks ago (I apologize I forgot where I found this) and this quote sums it all up:

“No matter how great a designer you are, you’re only as good as your content.”

Give me a good content and I will give you a great design. Give me a bad content and I will still give you a good design. But I have to warn you though, some people will take their time to read. And a crappy content brings crappy results.

Now my challenge as a designer is to ask and (politely) force my clients to come up with good content. To help them and give them ideas that can spark creativity and attract potential buyers. Also, to my fellow designers, be a copy writer as well.


Desktop wallpaper 011: Stating the obvious

I’m stuck inside my office because of the downpour. So while waiting for the rain to stop might as well do something productive.

I can’t think of a good, eye popping design at the moment so I’ve decided to create a simple wallpaper just to . . . uh, do something creative. And while surfing the internet I stumbled upon this article. It sparked some creative juices in my brain (despite the hunger I’m enduring right this very moment) and decided to create my own “state of the obvious” wallpaper.

Desktop Wallpaper 009: Something fishy

I always wanted to create a Koi art. Took me 3 months to create this fish, and somehow this one is not quite what i have in mind. But i’m happy with the result and that’s important. 🙂
