I know the Card Project is over but I couldn’t help making a new birthday message for someone who missed out last year.
I want to start off by saying sorry for the lack of posts lately. What should have been a simple LCD screen replacement turned into 2 weeks without a laptop due to broken motherboard. So here is the post I intended on finishing about 2 weeks ago before everything hit the fan, enjoy ;).
So I want to tell you guys about a little on and off project I’ve been working on over the past couple of months. There were moments of triumph as well as frustrating problems but at the start of September, I released my new Portfolio onto the web!
After over a month of no cards, my friend’s birthday came up earlier this month and I wanted to give her something since I hadn’t seen her in so long. Because she lives so far away, I decided to make another birthday web page for her!
So you’ve all probably heard about the magical social ‘scrap-booking’ website thing called Pinterest yeah? I put off getting an account because at first it didn’t really interest me. However after browsing the site for a while I caved in and decided to get on the waiting list and see if it was worth my while.
Well the title pretty much says it all ^_^. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been busy putting together cards for a family member and friend. I did a bit better job of taking WIP screenshots this time ^^;.
If you work in web design, you probably use or have access to a google analytics account and if you have an account, you probably know that a new version has been rolled out over the past couple of months. I’ve spent some time working with the new analytics and while there are great new features, there are other things that equally annoy me and make me want to revert back to the old layout.
Most people I know (think that I’m crazzaeeeey!) use Google products or services at some capacity and since the launch of Google+, they’ve been slowly updating their UI and designs to give them a much needed face lift. Recently the new Gmail and Google Reader layouts were unveiled and it’s been interesting to see how the changes have affected my experience with them.
I think most of the Australian design community is aware of Telstra’s recent brand refresh by Interbrand which started circulating about a month ago. Since Telstra is arguably one of Australia’s biggest brands, it’s not surprisingly that this 3 million dollar refresh has been everywhere lately. I’ve decided to review the components of the campaign to see how it is now being rolled out one month on. Lets get into it!
