IDcreatures Official Launch

Yesterday, January 24th 2011, me and Karla Soria decided to officially launch the website idcreatures.com, a website dedicated to helping designers improve their visual communication skills.  We've been working hard at the content, and I spent most of yesterday visually tweaking the website so it looks pretty damn good I gotta say.  So check it out, watch some videos, read some articles, and subscribe to our RSS feed!

I'll be moving soon!

I'm developing a new website for myself and I'll be integrating this blog into it, so sometime in the next week or so perhaps I'll be moving the content from this blog to there.  Blogger was starting to tire me anyway, and I thought it might be better to build the blog just how I wanted it from the ground up.  I've been developing it on the Wordpress.org platform.  Its been a week of hair pulling frustration due to my initial lack of understanding of css coding, but I'm getting there.  Here's a little preview of what it'll look like!

Cologne IMM Furniture Fair - Presenting the Ramazzotti Lounge

As a continuation of our Ramazzotti lounge design project, a few students fine tuned the designs, made new models, and also an exhibit to display at the IMM Cologne Furniture Fair.  This was a great opportunity for us to display our work, and contrary to my previous feelings about the design, I think it looks pretty nice (except the towering "visual center".  Today was my shift to stand at the exhibit and talk to people, so I took the chance to take some pictures...

Oh, and I just noticed that my camera captures reds horrendously...yuck.

Our little stand, with the models both 1:1 and 1:10 and the exhibit behind it.  And the bar, of course.


Looks nice eh?

Our professor inspecting the results.

Me being a human billboard.

Getting drunk on the job? I think not...

Group sitting!

One great thing about working there today was that I was right next to the Dezeen Talks, which were quite interesting.

Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs.

Mr. Fairs speaking with Stefan Diez, a German designer who had some very worldly things to say.  Maybe I'll do a post on the Dezeen talks later on...
