This article will cover some of the main elements of design and how technology aids designers in these factions… Continue reading 4 Types of Design Aided by Technology
One of the most beloved bags and accessories brand, Crumpler, known for its bold and unique design while remaining functional and sturdy ,opens another flagship store to widen its reach for the discerning customers who “Know how to live!”. The Crumpler Concept Store at Shangri-la Mall’s new East Wing officially opens to the public. It’s not just an ordinary store as it’s their biggest one yet. I was simply amused by the interiors, designed by award winning architects Ryan Russel and Byron George. The store is spacious, with numerous straps hanging from the ceiling creating a stimulating pattern and the mirror on one side made it feel like the store was larger as it seems.
I’ve been out of the loop from the Web Design Industry for a few years now. Prior to my photography and blogging, I was busy working as a web and graphic designer . If you followed Ironwulf.net En Route in its early years, all of the template designs were done by me from the ground up. The earlier versions even got local recognition as one of the Best Designed Filipino Blog in 2007 and internationally as part of the 45 Beautiful and Creative Wordpress designs from SixRevisions in 2008. But changes in technology have transformed the landscape of Web Design, now we are not only designing for native desktop browsers but also multiple platforms like mobile devices or flat screen TVs to try to make them compatible. Gone are the days when our only worry is to make our designs look consistent in different browsers.
Computer peripherals doesn’t always have to look dull and mechanical right? While I was looking for a nice USB-hub for the MacMini (yeah having the hub at the back of the unit can be a hassle), these stick USB-Hubs caught my eye, particularly by its simple and stylish design. It’s the Buffalo 4-Port USB Stick Colors edition, a MAC OS and Windows compatible which is better.
Call me old-fashioned but despite having a digital calendar on my smartphone, I still use use my trusty Moleskines to refer to past trips and also for those random notes I jot down on the road.
I just got my set of new calling cards for 2011. When I was about to run out of my old calling cards I thought it was a good opportunity to re-design one. The card this time is back-to-back so I don’t have to give separate cards for different blogs. Also I’m focused more on ferdzdecena.com this time around but ironwulf.net is still at the back. Remind me to give you one when I see you.
