Photo editing

[ This is the spring photo which edited by me. ]

[ Before ]

[ After ]

For my own photo editing, I made the original photo become a instax mini polaroid photo. The color is adjusted to be more vintage. A fingerprint is 'brushed' onto the photo to enhance the feeling.

room sweet room

Photos above are what i have done for the 1st project for perspective studies. It was an project of ideal room in one point perspective .

Top view, front evaluation and side evaluation must be done before hand. Next, start to draw out the scale and construction lines for everything. This can be considered as the hardest part which mostly of us did it wrong for the 1st time. Lastly, trace the construction lines out on a whole new paper and refine it with proper furniture.

" Stefie, did you shade your room?", I asked.
" I think that is unnecessary and somemore it might makes your artwork dirty.", Stefie answered.
" I 'll never do such annoying troublesome thing to suffer myself too. ", she continued.
" That is just an excuse lorr. Haha. ", I teased.
Stefie just replied me with her famous 'Wohohohohoho' .
That's why I just left my work in neat form without any shading.

But, this can't be the ideal room of mine after all. Because this is just another piece of rushing work which I finished it on the last minute. Well, simplicity makes the work nice. :P

'how to..' assignment

Well, this is what done by my groupmates and me for the 'How to..' assignment for Visual Communication. In order to complete this assignment, we actually have to draw out or snap down steps to instruct people how to do something. For our group, we decided to teach people how to insert the film into your manual camera since three of us also get involved with lomography. We snap down every steps and then stick those photos onto antique black card which has been made into film strip shape. We made a container that looks like a film roll in the end to put in the film strip with photos. Tadah! It's ready for presentation then.

I'm very happy having Alvin and Audrey as my groupmates for Visual Communication. Hopefully we can corporate even better and do something more amazing for the final assignment. :)

User-testing evaluation

First of all, I have to thank to everyone that helped me out with the user-testing of my icon design. *90 degree bow*

After the evaluation of the user-testing, I did some changes and enhancement to both set of icon design. Since majority thinks that the color combination is nice and not bad, I just made a little bit of change.

The weakness of my icon sets was some of the icons can't be recognized. But, I think this has been overcame after the changes.

The strength of my icon sets are the overall design and color combination. Majority is satisfied with those elements.

Finally, this assignment has come to an end. I really felt grateful that you all were willing to help me. :)

For the first visual communication assignment, a signage that related to environment-saving has to be created. What I did for this signage assignment is

asking people to use energy-saving light bulb.

Well, actually it is a rush work which I managed to finish it 2 hours before the class. I feel lucky since it is now chosen to be exhibited on next week. :)

1. Why do you want to use flowchart in your mobile interface design & screen interface design?

Flowchart is a way that can show the process of creating the design in a proper system. Through step by step, I can show out the functions of the design. I can identify the problem encountered. The solution can be found and enhancement can be done through the flow chart as well. This is the simplest logical way to get to the aim.

2. How will it help your user to meet the interactive goals?

First of all. the answer for flowchart is usually either 'yes' or 'no'. these simple yet concrete answer won't make the user confuse or hard to follow up the interaction. It is user-friendly while helping the user to understand the whole thing more easily.

Class studies

It's already the third week for this semester. I have been exposed to things that I never get in touch before. Even for AI, I learned more skill to do vector design.

This the pixel buddy icon I did for my friend. He complained his skin color in the icon was too dark after all. :P

This the icon class practice I did in class. i never try to make an icon with so much details before. Learned how to manage gradient in order to get the effect.

Red stripe on my neck

Mostly of my friends knew that I am a person that likes to take photos. By December of 2009, I receive a Canon 450D as my christmas present. Well, I'm still not familiar with all of those setting yet. Mr. Monitor-Albert, I know you do read this and you better teach me everything you know as fast as possible.

But, what I want share you all here is LOMOGRAPHY that I get in touch at the early middle of 2009. My first lomo camera is black slim devil from ultra wide & slim series. Here comes some photos snapped with it.

After a certain period, I have put my eyes on the black bird, fly camera and I got 1 which is in yellow color using the money I get from secondary school due to the good SPM result. Although using this camera requires some skills and not so easy, but I'm enjoy using it. Photos time.

These are just a part of photos that I took before. If you all wish to have look at the others, you can visit these links below which will lead you to my facebook account. I already arrange them by the kind of slide I used for shooting.
Black slim devil 1st try using normal film
1st EBX
2nd EBX
BBF 1st try using normal film

My dear fellow classmates, you come to me if you wish to know more about lomography. I would love to share everything I know. Don't let the manual camera being whipped out. :)

Well, I usually purchase the camera from this site, Galagalastore.
