The Creative Process for iPascher logo

Posted: March 13th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Creative Process | Tags: , | No Comments »

Introduction
Your logo needs to have an effect to your brand infallible – it will play a exceeding role in your brand recognition.

Research
My client’s business is e-commerce – selling books with low prices (“i Pas cher”) through the internet. So I’ve got a thought: if their prices low, may be so low, that purchase is like a gift. It’s cheap like “buy something for a song”.

Drawings
The next my step was a drawing. I drew books, gift boxes, bows for gift boxes… I drew and drank tons of coffee (coffee is for my creativity).

Choosing the Typography
I’ve got it! Fine, but the question is which font I am to use. The customer asked me about IPhone style, so I use Helvetica-Condensed-Thin (I cut it a little, so what?). And a glassy effect.

Probably my process is too simple, but I hope I tell you something useful – how it works :)

Golden Autumn

My favorite time of year is autumn.

Falling leaves, red and yellow…bright yellow, golden.
I decide to bring a little bit of autumn at my home. I take a few leaves and a spray can.

Please take a look:

Design and Coffee

Posted: March 13th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Design and Decorations | Tags: , | 1 Comment »

I work with Photoshop and Visual Studio, use some JavaScript (instead of Flash :) and tons of coffee (coffee fuels my creativity).

But some people use coffee in a different way.

Coffee art is a truly unique art form. It requires a thoughtful and delicate touch. Capturing the depth of these classic works is only possible through a slow process of building layers upon layers of espresso.

Decoration with Seashells

Posted: January 28th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Design and Decorations | Tags: , | No Comments »

If you are like me, you find it very difficult to return home from a beach vacation without at least a few shells.

Usually I bring to home more than “a few”. This is great and wonderful, I love shells and love having them around me.

But at last you’ve set and thought: “O my God, I have something to do with all those seashells”.

About Hand-code, Dreamweaver and Cheap Chinese Toys

Posted: January 27th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Design and Decorations | Tags: , | No Comments »

I’ve worked as a web designer and as a coder.

Also I have a passion for the hand-made things. I fond of doing something by hands because this way you can create exactly what you want and imagine.

May be that’s the reason I don’t use Dreamweaver (may be the reason is a programmer who will work with my code later ;)

So what about chinese toys? Patterns are the same, but even one of them will be extraordinary, if you wish. I’d love to show you the difference:

spare parts
finished, but it comes short of smth...
really finished
now I like it!
