2009-10-28 08:01:00
A month ago, I was working on a brand identity project together with Daniel Keller. He is a music producer, blogger & audiogadget lover from Switzerland, who is also the owner of this project :D. I'm so happy that after long brainstorming process, the re-brand of Danielku logo is finally here.I just want to share the design process with you and I would love to read your feedbacks too :)Read MoreThe Design ConceptThe idea was to bring a simple logo that correlates to Danielku slogan: "Music in Colors". As a start we think of a colorful music note. There were some facts to develop the basic concept into raw sketches: Daniel loves house/electro/dance musics and he produces music with drumpads.Visual Concept Throughout the Sketches We tried to deliver the design concept with different arrangement of type, slogan text and the illustration part of the logo.

Create your own Gmail theme
2009-08-15 05:47:00
I've been using "Shiny" theme for months. It is a theme provided in Gmail theme settings, which has glossy Web 2.0 style design in every corner of it. But then I want to see something different, because I always checking my Gmail everytime I'm online, I thought it would be a great idea to create my own Gmail theme in simplified look. I wanted to have custom Gmail theme that has similar color schemes as my Twitter background. A Dark grey-scale theme with soft green color in some parts. Wanna try to create something like mine? I'm using the web-safe default color schemes, so all you need is do the same thing as I did on your Gmail theme setting dashboard and save it. If you don't know how to create your own Gmail theme, just read this Gmail Help answer page for a start ;) Custom Gmail theme dashboard settings When you hover on some parts of Gmail section boxes with your mouse, you'll see a tiny button in every corner of each box.

Rolet: A Typeface Design by Simon Page
2009-06-27 14:08:00
It's been a tough week with many ideas on my mind for the next tutorial. Then I suddenly landed on a great spot of Flickr group: Vectortuts Group Pool. My eyes scanned down on some new submissions and this typographic poster design has caught my attention. The typeface poster was designed by a graphic designer from the UK, Simon Page . What's so special about this poster is that, Simon Page has used his own typeface creation, called Rolet. It will be available soon in vector form. Vector typeface has became widely used by many designers recently to present designs that has POP feel and contemporary or maybe even to create an extreme design look. Rolet is an interesting typeface design which has some kind of 2D layered shapes that are twisted, and the twist produced a smart 3D typeface in overall look. Just interesting! Take a sneak peep on this Rolet Typeface Design . Have your say if you like ;)
Pencil Sketch Effect in Photoshop Action
2009-06-25 08:35:00
This morning I surfed down the net to find pencil sketch effect tutorials. There are obviously lots of different techniques to produce this kind of effect into a photo. I followed several tuts, to compare the results and I felt like I needed to find the very quick one, yet it should have great result too. So, I came across this (relatively old) tutorial post at Jeff Flowers's.com. Written by Jeff Flowers himself :). He wrote a smart tutorial which is very easy to follow about "How To Turn A Photo Into A Sketch ".Source Photo: Danny North on FlickrI decided to create a set of photoshop action based on this step by step tutorial. In Step 3, Jeff Flowers set the radius blur into 6px (Filter » Blur » Gaussian Blur), but in this photoshop action, I set it into 15px. Jeff has also noted that: this all depends on your image.Even you will have instant graphic effect using this photoshop action set in a blink of an eye, I think you would still need to understand how this effect is produced. ...

The main part of the investment is the building that is being rented to generate income. The basic coverage for a landlord policy offers coverage for the building. That would include damages caused by fire, smoke, wind, lightning, hail, explosion, fire department charges, emergency removal of property, and damage from vehicle, damage from an aircraft, and riot or civil commotion.
