How does your working environment look?

78 comments 2004 at 02.26 am posted by Veerle Pieters

I’ve been toying around with the idea of writing an article about this for a while now. You see, for me it’s important to have a cosy office. It affects my creative mind and can’t stand the thought of getting a design job done in an office that gives you a rather depressing or a cold unpleasant feeling.

Now that we are in the vein, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to give you the entire picture of the design part of this project. I know that most of you come to visit my blog to learn more about design. And from what I can hear in the comments of my previous article, it’s a good idea to tell you how things went in the design stage.

Let’s talk a little about some of the latest projects I’ve worked on. It started all with an update of the company logo, and housestyle together with a new brochure ending up with a new design of the online newsletter and website. Needless to say the website was the most challenging part of all.

Since my previous post about Layer Comps in Photoshop CS I’ve discovered some interesting new things that I didn’t know about.  So today we’re going to explore the amazing world of scripts. Phew, scripts not something that I use daily or very often but handy once you got the hang of it. It’s a bite like I said before you have to take time to explore.

Layers Comps are new in Photoshop CS. For those who wonder how these work here is my story… Funny thing is I’ve never used this new feature and I’m sure this is a handy tool. Once you know how it works it is indispensable.

Parking…. battle of the sexes

I think it’s time again for some fun. How about a game? This “parking” game is one to try. In real life I admit that parking isn’t one of my strongest qualities.

Do you remember my post about those stunning photorealistic drawings? They use complex gradient meshes to achieve such result. If you have some Illustrator experience and you wonder how such gradient mesh works or you wonder how to start, I’m sure this tutorial might help.

Tiësto in Concert report

Boy did the time fly this weekend (especially if you’re sleeping most of the time). The need for some shut-eye was due to Tiësto in Concert last Saturday at the Ethias Arena in Hasselt.  I’ve been looking forward to this concert for quite some time and expectations were high due to last year’s concert in Arnhem.
