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.
A very busy month in the office, we just launched the Job Order Monitoring System for some digital television company (if they were good bundle I probably include their link here). I am programming the system together with a team for 3 months now. I suck in testing really, so I got a lot of revisions I always overlooked things, but the good thing is, I learned a new language. Enough of that programming topic and the let’s focus on the title shall we? I really love designing, and here are some logos I designed well I joined some contest and I failed to win them well I just change the text besides its still mine!
It’s for a medical supplies site, The rest of the site should be serious, well if you are in the medicine side of things, you should be serious its life you know.
This is for web portfolio site, its the “ZEN”-ness and the awesomeness of things will be all in here. For all designers
Well I have still on my sleeve but the contest is on going so I rather not reveal it yet.
So if you have links of your works you can post it here. So what do you think?
