So little is known about my obsession with this beautiful majestic mammal. I have harbored this secret, stuffed it down for 16 years.
When I was in 5th or 6th grade, at a book fair I gravitated towards only 1 book sticking out like a sore thumb among a myriad of colors and titles, this book caught my attention. It was all in black with a man holding a bat, like it was his pet, titled BATMAN (not related to DC comics).
And that’s all I needed. I’m a simple gal. I like strange things.
I held it, read it, flipped through all those bat selfies and fell in love.
Life has a way to hand me some metaphorical lemons.
Depending if there is a big holiday approaching, work can be demanding. Sleepless nights and answering countless emails are part of my daily design grind or on the flip side can be very stale. When demand is stale, I take advantage of this period to collectively see my progress throughout the course of the year. And this is what I’ve learned: Continue reading →
do actions speak louder than words? Or Do words speak louder than actions? these are the questions.
I usually don’t state my opinion on political manners because I let my actions, for those that are dear and close to me know this, to speak for themselves. Given the social stressful political events that have occurred thus far; I realized there are a lot of berating going on between two opposing sides.
I think of it this way; when a persons’ actions don’t match up with what their saying I tune them out. It’s difficult to judge people over the screen though, especially if you’re not familiar with the person in person. I wonder if that’s why I fall in love with actor/ess that play their character so well that I believe their fictional sacrifice to save the human race? Continue reading →
Today, I wrote out a poem…yes, I was a very angsty person since I started high school way back when. Obviously I am in my late 20s now and haven’t tapped into that side of me in a very long time. Certainly my view has changed and shifted towards a more outer perspective rather than looking inwards as my 15 year old self did. Continue reading →
It’s hard to ignore that businesses’, through my eyes, are very cut throat. they write off artists as ‘anyone can design’ as well as thinking this (creative project) shouldbe quick and easy, I’m pretty sure it won’t take long.
It’s hard to accept, the head of any company, do not know the amount of effort it takes to create bomb ass campaigns in order to make a dent amongst the many other competitive companies with a solid design team behind them. Smaller, up-and-coming business have this mentality that they should invest their money on other important things and design is secondary. They know they need one to make an online presence but they settle for quantity over quality. Continue reading →
Ever wonder how time flies when you’re having fun? no, no The exact opposite happens & before you know it, you’re being emailed/texted/faxed if the mock ups for the sale pitch creative are done yet…because they need it asap.
I’m not going to lie to you guys but clients go for super affordable designers and in this day and age where everything is fast paced and incredibly overwhelming with graphics thrown at you from every crevice of the universe, you got no other option but to adapt and fast! Continue reading →
Hey guys! Today I was let down that my designs was not up to par with a client’s aesthetic and overall “look” of their company.
Now the reason I air quote “look” is because keeping up with trends is not an easy thing to do. Companies looking for graphic designers think it’s easy to be on top of trends and expect designers to produce creatives in under a minute. Which sometimes does happen but on rare occasions does it ever work out. Continue reading →
