May tumawag sa phone ko. Walang number. Nakalagay lang, “Call”. Tapos binababa ko. Haha! Nakakatakot kase. Tapos after nung 2nd call, sinagot ko. Yun pala yung Paypal! Grabe haha. Kinontak (Ang lutong lang ng dating. Kinon-TAK) ko nga pala yung Paypal, regarding sa age blah blah. :-) Tapos nakalimutan ko na nilagay ko pala phone number ko dun. Haha! Ayan tuloy, tinawagan ako. Edi yun na nga.
She: “I’ve received your email regarding your account on Paypal”
Me: “Uhm. Yeah”
She: “Are you the one who sent that”
She: “Is this the right time to answer your question?”
Me: “I think no, because I’m busy doing something” (Pero wala talaga, kase mano-nose bleed ako. Haha!)
She: “Oh I see. Alright then, I’ll just answer your question through email”
Me: “Sure sure”
Me: “Thanks and bye!”
Haha! Iyon lang. Sana naman payagan nila yung request ko. :( Titignan ko na lang yung email ko later, baka sinasagutan niya pa ngayon.
Nakakatamad pag-aralan tong Geometry. Di ko ba alam kung bakit di ko to gets. Haha! Ang gulo lang kase, or talagang.. haha =))) Basta. Yun na yun. Mag aaral muna ako, at sana ma gets ko tong 2 column proof. Bye!
Graphika Manila International Multimedia Design Conference is the premier multimedia and graphic design event in the Philippines. Since 2006, Graphika Manila has attracted over 7500 design students and professionals and is now hailed as one of the most influential multimedia art events in the country. As it celebrates its sixth year running, Graphika Manila once more brings together Manila’s creative minds to listen to inspiring stories and celebrate the works of the best multimedia and graphic designers from the Philippines and from around the globe. Simply put it as a creative symposium with speakers from different fields of the creative arts. The conference focuses on the creative side of design, rather than technology.
Create.PH held a contest on Twitter that whoever answers the questions first, will win a free ticket. And luckily, I won. My thoughts when I saw that I actually won, was like “Should I go, or what?” I don’t want to be a loner. So I asked you, my friends, who will go to Graphika Manila, and Kuya Glenn said he will come. I really thank him for the time he spent with me. Without him, I might not enjoy the day.
Going back, the first speakers were Nico and Katwo Puertollano (27+20). 27+20 is an independent multidisciplinary design agency from QC, Philippines. They specialize in visual communications through graphic design, photography and film/video for print and broadcast. Being the first one to talk must be really hard, because you need to wake those people and make a mark on their minds. But yes, they’ve managed to do it. What marked on me is that, their experiences with their clients and told us how to cope up with it. Experience will always be your best teacher, so always take note of it! I must really say that their talk is really exceptional.
Here’s a pic of mine with Sir Nico! :-) [Click this]
Moving on, Dan Matutina, a designer and illustrator whose style is a mix of handmade and digital, clean and dirty, old and modern aesthetics.
When he came up in the stage, everybody was quiet and when he started talking, everyone became excited. His introduction was really awesome but in a funny way. No one got bored when he started talking. One of the things that I got from him was his message for designers to take risks. Experiences lead to stories, and stories lead to Ideas. His ideas were very much creative. I loved how he could create scenarios from a word or a phrase or a concept. Interesting stories behind every illustrations he made. With his great humor, a big grin was left on the listeners.
Mike Friolo, also known as MonkeyMike was also there. He designed Manny Pacquiao's crest, logo and almost anything what he (Manny Pacquaio) wears. Next was, PJ Richardson from Laundry! He kinda gave a boring talk. It made me sleepy for about 10 minutes I guess? Or I’m just really tired that I felt I need to take a rest. Haha! Either way, his works are awesome but his talk isn’t that good for me. And last but not the least was Kevin Andrew Smith from Weta Digital. Weta Digital is a world leading visual effects company based in New Zealand. There are no explanation needed, their works are jaw-dropping! One of the fact he said to us was, Avatar occupied a size of 2 Petabyte. Change 2 Petabyte to Gigabyte it would be around 2 million Gigabyte!! Grabe lang talaga. Ang detailed ng mga gawa nila which is obvious from the movie itself. So just check out their site and be mesmerized.
Definitely enjoyed that day. Too bad I didn’t see Kuya Aseo, Kuya Xtian, SirDaryl, Sir Jejomar, Sir Meneer and Sir Robcham! It was my fault. I forgot to leave a contact number to Kuya Aseo and Kuya Xtian. :-( Grr! Lesson learned.
Anyway, I will surely attend the following conference but I will make sure that everything is perfectly planned. Till next time, bye!
And I have a picture of Sir Christian San Jose and me! [Click this]
