I am no professional when it comes to graphic design, but I can say that it pretty much is a hobby that I enjoy very much. If you’ve known me online for a couple of years, you probably know what I mean. I was one of those people who used to change blog layouts every so often. I enjoyed learning new styles in Photoshop. And I even did the deisgn and layout of my batch’s yearbook in PSID all by myself!
Last Saturday, JR and I attended the first ever Graphika Manila, which was held in Mall of Asia. It was an entire day conference where noted designers (both local and international) came to share about their talents and love for graphic art.
Layouts: Web and Yearbook

Finally, a new layout! ^^;;
Instead of working on our yearbook layout, this afternoon I sat myself down to work on this site. It was in dire need of a facelift, really. I was getting sick and tired of seeing the grey tones of my previous layout. Sure, the contents are still the same (I haven’t had the time, nor the inspiration to add anything new), but at least this is something fresh to look at.
Being the graphic/layout editor of my batch’s yearbook, has forced me to fiddle around with Photoshop once again. Having almost 200 pages to do in about a month and a half’s time is a lot of work, but it’s been a thrilling job for me.
I had always dreamed of getting myself involved in such work. I’ve been fond of designing graphics, posters and different layouts for as long as I can remember. For several years, I was contented with designing websites. I would tweak around Photoshop and familiarize myself with its different functions. It was a hobby that somewhat helped me develop, not only my skill, but my love for graphic design too. I enjoyed, and still enjoy making websites, but I always hoped that one day I would find myself working on the layout of magazine or a book.
Sure, it’s only a school yearbook that I’m doing and it’s nothing grande, but I’m still very much psyched up. I can’t wait to work on the rest of the pages. I’m excited to see the final outcome of the work that I had always dreamed of doing. =)
.i love you, my bebe! =).
