PDF to Book Guides

Having made a book using Blurb. With the documentary photography project during my time at university. I haven’t really challenged myself creating my own layouts as blurb in the past had poor limitations. That’s why many designers doesn’t use the application and prefer to go to the local printers. Another reason you have to endure is to read about 5 pages to understand, not to add image or text over the trim lines and etc. For some, others have made this mistake and received their book unsatisfied. Many complaints was shown on their blog.

After my last check up, around 6 months ago. Today Blurb has finally identified the problem and now has all the instructions and templates, downloads for InDesign. Now, designers can create books without worrying about alignment mistakes during the printing process.

(Will review this new feature, as soon as I create a book using this application in the coming month)

REVAMP

Long time, no speak bloggers. It’s been a very long time since I’ve last posted. After dissecting all through my work, I believe my personality doesn’t seem to show through? So I decided to revamp everything, includes my web, work and stay on a specific path and stick with a style.

GEOMETRIC SHAPES
TYPOGRAPHY
COLOUR

Influences from “Suprematism” and “Swiss style” design.

Young Soul Rebels – War Child Song

Offiicial video for ‘I Got Soul’ – War Child’s single recorded by the ‘Young Soul Rebels’

The track, a new, re-written version of the stirring Killers anthem “All These Things That I’ve Done”, will be released on October 19th on Island Records. Proceeds go to help War Child’s vital work protecting children from the brutal effects of war.

The Young Soul Rebels are:
N-Dubz
Pixie Lott
Tinchy Stryder
Frankmusik
V.V. Brown
Kid British
Chipmunk
Mpho
McLean
Ironik
Domino Go
Bashy
Egypt
London Community Gospel Choir

I don’t believe they killed the original as I’m a huge fan of the killers, but this is a good version of the song and it shows variation throughout.
