Identity for ToprakveSu, a Turkish hydroponics company. It was fun to do and I like the result. So did they. Check it out on the identity section.

I got to be in a book. A design book. Yay for me. This book (a good 2 kilos btw) is about blogs of designers. It is called BLOGS - Mad about Design, is published by Maomao Publications, a Barcelona based company and Roundpixel got to be a part of it. POIDH follows.

    Goodies time

    Saturday, May 23rd, 2009

    It’s been almost… wait, wait.. it’s been 2 days since my last update! No, there’s nothing wrong with me, I’m not going to make a habit out of posting oftener - heaven forbid I should do such a thing. I found a couple of icons I made for my girl a while ago and thought they’d make good ..well goodies. Especially since the originals are vectors. So here goes - get it on the goodies page .

    Lots and lots of updates

    Thursday, May 21st, 2009

    It’s been a while - again. So here goes : 8 new-ish websites, 6 or 7 identity pieces. As usual, they’re in no particular order, some are really old now… I’ve said that before haven’t I? I’m still working on 3 huge projects and a small one. Hope to finish at least some of them soon enough so that I can do so some things for myself. I forgot the last time I took a picture or drew something just for the heck of it.
    lots and lots

    New site - milk farm

    Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

    I never update as soon as I have something new. Well, not this time. This time I’m putting it out here so that people can see it. Made a website for a milk farm. Got to shoot (photograph) old cows, baby cows and a truck :) Check it out on the web portfolio page or go right to the website here : ferma de lapte.

    MacBook AIR Sleeve & Pouch

    Thursday, April 10th, 2008

    Fun weekend project.
    So here goes… Remember when Steve got out the MBA from that manilla folder? We all wow-ed right? Well, turns out my significant other got so wowed she decided she must have one. MBA that is.. not the manilla folder. But lo and behold there’s no sleeve or folder or case for the MBA. Not here in the boons anyways.
    So she could either order one from manila mac and wait forever (as it seems they’re all sold out most of the time) or… she could punch her boyfriend in the shins saying “you’re a designer right? you can do better than those dudes.”

    So yeah. I got my revenge. I used one of her coats. Leather.. and wonder of wonders - with a leopard underside hah!
    Of course it wasn’t enough to have just a sleeve. There’s the adapters, cables and whatnot that need to be carried as well. So I made a pouch too.
    This is what came of it.

    sleeve & pouch
    the buttons are leather too. I found those in my mom’s buttons case. She has this old navy biscuits tin can filled with buttons and needles and such. Things like that are so ubiquitous I’m willing to bet 60% of households worldwide have a tin can filled with buttons (must write essay on tin cans and buttons)

    sleeve open
    the edges of the sleeve are stiffened with a meter-long piece of IV transfusion tube sewn inside a leather flap. The tube should provide some cushioning too in case the laptop falls on its edge… I hope never to test it. Also since the whole thing was sewn by hand it provided a nice way to cover my not so straight lines.

    pouch open
    the open pouch. I figured since the MBA uses Leopard… and since time immemorial leopard print was used to pimp stuff up … well it went well together. You can see some of my less fortunate sewing techniques here. When it’s closed you can’t see the bad parts though :)

    For more (and larger) pics head on to the Sleeve&Pouch Project set on flickr.

    Updates again

    It’s been so long since I’ve updated the portfolio I almost forgot what to put up :) : 8 websites, lots of print stuff, an identity piece. I’m sure there’s more somewhere… but I couldn’t find it. As usual, they’re in no particular order, some are really old now…
    lot of stuff

    New Goodies

    Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

    I wanted to do something for Halloween. Well I didn’t. I did a few things last year and they should be still good this year as a “special theme ” item. So instead I made the zodiac signs. I just realized last Halloween was also the last time I put anything “free” on the site. I’ll try and do better heh.

    Anyway you can get the signs on the Goodies page .

    Artwork

    Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

    Not mine this time. I helped a friend put up his stuff online. His name is Gabriel Balazs and he is a painter, a singer, an illustrator and an all around nice guy. He’s also not competition haha. He does stuff the old way (pencils, actual paint on actual canvas… that sort of stuff). I’ve always been a fan of his and it’s a small way of showing my appreciation. So I donated a little space and a little time and put together a blog/gallery for him.

    Be sure to visit Gabriel’s website. If you like anything - buy it:)

    This is what he gave me for my troubles :) . It will go straigth on my livingroom wall as soon as I have it framed.
