Animo La Salle!
Here is the sample mock-up of the shirt design I made for a contest ran by the organization, Moo Media, I really love. Apparently, just like the usual contest you see on social media, the design with the most number of likes will have a high chance in winning. So, if you find mine worth winning, then you could help me by simply liking this photo here (comments are highly appreciated as well). Cheers and thank you!
Stay Strong Philippines
Few weeks back, Typhoon Haiyan also known as Yolanda has completely destroyed the Visayas part of the Philippines, especially Leyte and Samar. It was said to be the greatest wind damage any city on Earth has endured from a tropical cyclone in the past century. Now, the people there are in big need of help. If you can donate or help in any way you can, please do. Here’s a post on how to. Thank you guys on behalf of my fellow countrymen! God bless.
If there’s one thing that often hold us back from living the life we want, that would be fear. But most often, that very fear of ours holds the greatest reward. It’s because when the time we enter the ‘cave’ comes, it is only then we can fully grasp the treasure we’ve been longing for. Take that risk and go for the extra mile! (#NotesToSelf ☹)
Anyway, starting today, I’m gonna keep track on how many ‘typography’ I make for the rest of this blog’s life. Hopefully I can reach more or less a hundred works!
InstaQuote: Personalities 1
Last week, there was a major rampage of the human society caused by the iOS7. Some people loved it, some hated it. Either way, I ended up updating my iPad’s OS as well. With that being said, I got curious who was the person responsible for these intricate and well-crafted designs. Of course, before, it was Steve Jobs, who had a lot of innovative ideas, that did them. However, after he passed away, I never got to think who sort of replaced him. That’s where I knew Jonathan “Jony” Ive. He’s currently the Senior Vice President of Design at Apple and the person behind this iOS7!
As iOS7 is moving to a not-so flat combined with parallax effect trend in mobiles and tablets, I have decided to go that way also. Meaning, my blog will start to look neater/flatter and more friendly for readers. So, expect that change for about 2-3 weeks from now (well it still depends on how hell my week’s gonna be). I might post a screenshot of it soon!
Anyway, here are two of the genius human beings from Apple that shared a bit of inspirational quote for everyone. Hope you like it!
Ola, aloha! - Film Festival
In DLSU, there’s this organization called Green Media Group that caters the production and media services in and out of the campus. In order to be accepted, the head of your chosen pool must approve your assignment. In my case, we, who picked the Creatives Pool, were tasked to do the publicity materials for an upcoming-imaginary international film.
There were no themes and pegs given. It was up to us how we wanted them to look like. For me, what I thought of was a colorful and joyful peg. This is what I end up with (those are mock-ups only). As you can see, the poster was pretty much inspired by a local brand whose name I forgot. Haha. Going back, you might ask, why is it like that? The logo is in circle form to show infinity because film will always be part of our lives. It will just never end, trust me. It has four colors as well: Orange, green, blue and red to represent the different genres of film. Orange for comedy/energetic; Green for adventure/nature-themed/documentary; Blue for action/fantasy; Red for horror/dramatic/romance films. Also, the red on the middle symbolizes the “play” button. All the other elements presented above are the different tools and media a person can use on the film industry.
So there you go. I hope you liked my take as much as I did. And oh, I was accepted on the said org. Yay! Do not forget to like our fanpage because we are going to have an event to all aspiring filmmakers there! Better watch for that. Thank you!
