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)

Changed PDF Portfolio

After much consideration and thought, I’m ditching the whole tangram pattern, as I want my PDF portfolio to be cleaner. By looking at the grids, the tangram is over powering the overall theme and isn’t connected to my online portfolio and CV.

Here is my new clean look.
