Photoshop Workshop – Emma Poster

Here are some photo’s from the workshop we held over the weekend.

I must say I felt like a proud parent when the students started to remember the Photoshop shortcuts and commands we had taught them in class and were able to “create new layers” and “deselect”.

I’m so proud of all of them. Check out their student works above.

Boy Baby Shower

Most recently I worked on a design for a BOY baby shower! This was the first boy shower I’ve done so I was really excited!

The theme colors were blue and yellow.  Also, as the father is French so that also was an inspiration for the card design! To create the backdrop, as the venue had white curtains already I thought it would be an awesome photo backdrop. Simple pom pom flowers were stringed and arranged to create the focal point. Below it, I made a simple banner. It’s pretty easy! You can do it too!

A Little Cupcake, A Lot of Fun

CUPCAKE FUN MOCKUPSo I was inspired to design this cupcake invite to a party I planned to throw for some of my friends. It had been awhile since we had some fun, so I decided to take it one step further and design a card!

We love getting together to have a good time with friends and to have lots of sweet eatables. This is the inspiration for my card! Let me know what you guys think!

Design Tip of the Day : RGB VS CMYK

During the design process, it may be easy to overlook our colour mode. However, I learnt this the hard way and so I’ve decided to highlight this. We should not assume that what we design on the computer when printed will come out as exactly as what we see on the screen.

REMEMBER : Anything web designed – RGB colour ; Anything To Be Printed – CMYK colour

RGB stands for Red, Green and Blue. This really  means that it uses these basic colours to make up the other colours.

CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black.

Our computers emit light and show colour in red,blue and green. They are also able to emit colours in a limited range. Overlapping the primary colours red, blue and green gives rise to secondary colours cyan, magenta and yellow. Printed products usually require the four colour process CMYK. *if you notice, your printer cartridge at home may even show this!*

Printers that accept RGB modes, will convert to CMYK automatically and from first hand experience, this results in faded and dull colours when printed! The final print was so far off the actual colour I had designed for! I ended up reprinting the whole set of invitations.

So, always convert your files to CMYK for better print results and a better final outcome!

Design Sunday – Wedding Program

Usually Sunday’s tend to be the most relaxed day of the week and therefore was most inspiring! I’ve designed a wedding program in the bright colors that I felt reflect nicely on the Indian theme.

If you’ve ever been to an Indian wedding, you would know that it is always full of bright colors and great music and lots of dancing!

Like this design? Buy it here! 🙂

On another note, I’d like to add a tip for those wanting to do flat lays in design or even photography. There’s this thing called “mockups”. These are basically prototypes of items, it could be a plant, ipad, computer screen, coffee, the list goes on. You can buy them or get free mockups and use them to showcase your designs! Forget about the long hours it takes photographing your item in the perfect light and say goodbye to shadow issues!  Mockups are the way to go! Try them out today! Leave a link of your work in the comments below or leave a comment if your have anything to add. I would love to hear from you! ❤

Autocad Workshop

I’m branching out my freelancing into creating workshops for students to learn skills, tips and shortcuts for some of the software needed to make it through Architecture school.

To be honest, I wasn’t from a family that had architects or engineers or interior designers as some of my peers did. I also was probably the only student who did not know what a door or window looked like in plan view in my first year of uni. It’s still a wonder how everyone “just knew” what those things looked like! I also wished there was someone who could’ve taught me all the basics so I could’ve done better! So I hope to be able to be that someone for all those who feel alone at archi school!

If you need more details pm / comment / email me!

Jerry Loke Bungalow

I’ve been working on a presentation board as part of our company profile for a project built in 2012. Personally I have always loved this project for it’s minimal yet elegant design.

It was built and completed before I joined but it was the first project that struck me when I first joined the company. It’s a single unit bungalow in Bandar Mahkota Cheras, Kajang.
