I will start this with "Mabuhay".
I am a Service Engineer for a BPO Company that serves HR Software for international companies.
My work deals with integration with HRIS, Payroll Services and Third Party Vendors around the world.
The blog that I am working on now is one about my personal life, the other one is a music blog and the other one is a Web Dev blog.
So from the last I post something here, I have a project called Genesis, which I almost forgot for a few months. My games caught me in a point of no return. Yes, games caught me.
Let’s blame the auto-fight/auto-play features of the games they got me under their controllers. I partly regret that because my battery is almost reliable in the power source, yes, they also got my battery.
I played this a lot, and I almost forgot when I first installed it in my phone, removed it and installed it again. Its been weeks that I open chests but never engage on a ranked or classic game. Just the players are stupid and I’ve been an MVP for the losing team. Oh! Players are just stupid that’s why I just let them rank down first then I go play again with true players of the game.
I never imagined that I will play Ragnarok again. Well, it has autoplay so I can grind while doing something else, actually sometimes while at work I just let my character kill some hornets or thief bugs. It is a nice game really and very convenient but it will eat up your phone’s memory. The game is really huge. They retain as much detail as they can based on the original MMORPG that’s why fans love it.
These are the games, and I have 2 more topics in the header but it’s not just as interesting as games. Well work is very less interesting than the latter.
We moved out! The family moved to another place that we can call “permanent-address”. We’ve been moving from one apartment to another and now finally with some prayers, charm and divine intervention finally we got moved in to the permanent place. Yes, its finally ours!
Not that interesting, it’s just overwhelming at work! So before I get into trouble, this is how it ends.
The past weeks has been a struggle. Struggle creatively, writing and practically designing. Today was really boring, I am just tired of everything I can’t even play with my kids (well I tried and we are okay). Then creativity strikes, I recalled this post regarding “stealing your way to original designs” (Go read it it’s a good read). It says there the first step is to “Imitate”.
It given me the boost that I need (just a little push) for today. Got into my laptop, and start searching for the font that would start it all.
I started with the font I have no motif in mind just the first font that would struck my attention. Then I found Candle Mustard. Still I am not thinking of any style or theme for the website, I went to instagram. There’s this account about web design that I followed for a few weeks already (since last week I am looking for inspiration). Seeing some design from DailyWebDesign got an idea to create something out of the font and the idea of imitation. Well I failed in imitating, since I have goal to start everything from scratch with just one font.
It’s like a EUREKA moment!
I did call it sagwan.ph (if there is a real website with that name it’s just a coincidence). But let’s call the design Moses since he is the only one I recalled in the bible that traveled a lot.
So I pretty much imitate most of the parts, except the original designer used sans-serif fonts, well I combined sans-serif for long texts and the featured font for the “titles”.
After months of complete dormancy I was able to got out of my cave. So I started this Genesis thing last year and it was on and off development for me, but I was able to pull it off but with minimal design. Now I scrapped down the initial features of version 1 and tried to improved with version 2. Well you don’t develop softwares just degrade of course it has some enhancements.
The title of the post says it all, this is the start of version 2 of the Project Genesis. I just put up a simple logo just to initialize the development. Logos give you the feeling of what the project is about and should stand all through out the development.
I given it a simple design, with just shapes and chosen some few good fonts like Giraffey. The logo that I am aiming is to have a corporate feel to it, so I used shades of blue to it. I created a striking rounded rectangle with grey gradient to add up an accent to an “ascending” or laddered level just like in schools.
As I said on previous posts this is a comeback project and like from the beginning, it was Genesis.
I will be posting a lot of the development more often now again to document everything.
This will be the start of the version 2 and hoping for the next months I could pull off something large in terms of the development and also I will be using a more localized platform Dreamweaver 6 and TortoiseSVN/Subversion for versioning.
