So it begin the change in the blog, as you can see the pages are temporarily taken out from their original position, but they will be back. It will be considered as work in progress.
So I will be working on something great in this blog. I will have categories to add games, entertainment and still something about incoming projects. I will also put some of the portfolios I will be doing. Some tech stuff will still be evident around the blog, it’s the foundation of all of this need to give it back.
I will reserve you all of the rumors on the MCU, it will be part of the entertainment section of the blog and some recent comic reviews and some relative information about some old comic book stuff.
Music will be optional, though I am not closing the possibility of having some music bits here there are a lot of going on the blog while I am still working on the design of the Genesis Project, so stay tuned!
I put the Genesis Project aside first and focus what entity should hold the project and future projects for that matter. I created RATLABS, this will be a web design organization that will be headed, of course, by me.
Why create RATLABS? I believe that your biological name is the greatest brand you will ever have, but my name is a bit mouthful so I created an acronym of it. I will not give it away it here, for mysterious effect purposes, but somewhere in the brand that has my name on it go figure. So why? I just need an entity to hold my projects so there is another layer of ambiguity.
I set aside the project for a few weeks, and I already charged just a week of work on my logs. From March when I started the Genesis Project I worked on research and some sample codes for preparation of the project. I put effort on the UI of the project but there are still a lot to do and some few tweeks I need to put on the canvass. There are a lot of going on basically with the project and I think this is a good venue to put it all in the new brand.
From my last post, I started (again) my designing activities. I joined a few contests and I did not get the rhythm yet. What is the purpose of the designing activities anyway? This is to get a rhythm and try on some new tools. I am shifting to Illustrator from Fireworks. Fireworks seem to be dead but there are still users out there. It’s just a personal choice that I learn something new and Illustrator has been the “industry” standard.
Right now I have 7 logos designed in 3 weeks well for me this is a good number since I started. Besides I need to rest from my regular job, things got hectic in the office, due to deployment upgrades and ad hoc work.
I started with Sonic Acacia, It is a concept design for a rock band, an emo one for the concept. Why an emo rock band? Well I was listening with a popular Philippine band that has a lot of emo and love songs. I thought of creating a concept band logo, then the concept site.
The concept site is inspired based on the content of Blink 182 site. It has gig scheds and pages that has music video in it. I will walk you through it some other time, maybe on the web development blog I will put up. The url is already there sometime in December but I need to pile some article first so we can get some momentum on posting.
