Just for fun I took a shot in Alen's play-off. Dribbble play-offs usually consist on some type of design challenge, this one in particular consisted in to make any image but only using the typeface Arial. I went little wild with the space theme.
Sometime in April, I participated in the Futuralbum Project. The main concept of the project is to make cover art for any album, only using the font Futura and images taken from Flickr Internet Archive Book Images. Artists, designers and illustrators around the world got a chance to tackle the subject in their own way.
Here's what I submitted.
What I love about projects like these is the creative freedom you get working with stock images which something I've never experimented before. I loved it and now I'm addicted to working with vintage stock. I'll write another post to go through a bit of my process.
Over the years, I've hosted my portfolio on several places. Cargocollective, Behance, Coroflot and probably a bunch of others that I don't remember anymore. The thing is they've never felt like proper portfolios, at least not in my eyes. They get the job done, your work is there for anyone to see it. I'm not a web designer, my knowledge on CSS and HTML, and whatever else the kids these days are using is extremely limited. So, I could never make a website properly mine.
After some digging around, reading some tutorials and couple of clicks here and there, I got my Squarespace site to look how I always wanted. Please bear with me as I make the final adjustments to get this place looking all professional. I'll be in my bunker sending some e-mails and putting the finishing touches on a couple of projects so I can upload them.
