Today I'm going to show some illustration work that unfortunately never saw daylight as the project got cancelled. The work evolved along the way but it was one of my biggest struggles in Photoshop
so far. The path was like thousand tiny little lessons in drawing. The ability to illustrate real faces is a skill that I don't really master so the creation of these illustrations helped me in becoming better at it.
Last Sunday Sir Bradley Wiggins rode himself in the books of history with his UCI hour record attempt. The renewed interest for the UCI hour record was started by German Jens Voigt. That record didn't hold very long as it was taken over by Matthias Brändle (IAM Cycling). He lost it to Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing). The mark for Wiggins was set out by Alex Dowsett (Movistar).
Another year has past and brought us many experiences, some happy, some sad, all lessons in this grand scheme of things called life. First I like to take this opportunity to thank all my readers and wish them all a healthy and inspirational 2015. Let's start the year with some potential savings you could get if you have a job opening that needs a candidate. It's an annual tradition of my partner in crime Authentic Jobs
A little while ago I designed, coded and implemented a web site for one of our clients 'Tuinen De Korenbloem
'. For this small web site project I was on the lookout for a lightweight CMS so the client would be able to manage some of its content. Perch
seemed to be the perfect fit. Since there wasn't much of a learning curve, and the things I needed for this web site were pretty straightforward, I decided to give it a try. Today I'll share you some of the basics of Perch
I had the great fortune to do some illustration and layout work for one of Smashing Magazine's new books
called "Digital Adaptation"
, written by Paul Boag
. Yet another fun and creatively challenging project that I would love to share its design process here on my blog, starting with the design of the cover of the book and the creation of the pre-launch website landing page.
With the Spring Classics in full swing, this is the perfect moment to share my story about a t-shirt design
I recently created for WieMu
, "To be or not to be Flandrien
We had a very entertaining openingsweekend here in Belgium with 'Omloop het Nieuwsblad
' and 'Kuurne Brussel Kuurne
'. Perfect timing to launch a new publication that is called 'Titanen
'. It's always a pleasure to work on a subject that you are passionate about. I had a small contribution with creating an infographic about the main star. The first edition is completely devoted to a true titan, Fabian Cancellara
One of the projects I've also
been working on in the past couple of months, is the redesign of a web site for one of our longterm clients, Exonet
, a Dutch Internet provider. Today I want to share my design process of this project, which involved my favourite mix: illustration work, combined with web site design & layout, and front-end coding.
We are a few weeks into our yearly birthday celebration of Authentic Jobs
. I can't believe this is already the 8th time
we are doing this. Regular readers will know that we always celebrate this milestone by giving back. This year you can help us in surpassing the $100,000 mark
in our charity: water campaign. Excited and proud to be part of this wonderful board and campaign!
