To design a web presence/identity piece for a modern artist to showcase his current and previous artwork and integrate it into a content management system. A customized WordPress templates. Custom php/WordPress code was created to showcase work based on tags, as well as showing outside links in the shadowbox plugin, which also showcases the artist’s work. Incorporated in the sites design was a calendar and contact page.
This project is something I am working on as a gift to my relatives. I am compiling information about our family and putting together a coffee table book for relatives who are interested, which would be those who are related to me paternally. I plan on hand binding it in a leather cover but haven’t decided on the paper to use. So far I have the first parts of the book, which illustrates the page layout with which I am working. There is also a database behind this project. The database links the generation, age of death, age at marriage, so-forth-so-on. Tell me what you think; give me suggestions; add a comment below.
First Logo designed for Dragon Gate Design in 2007. The logo’s design comes form a Chinese legend: In Chinese mythology the Dragon’s Gate is a waterfall where a carp upon successfully jumping over it will become a dragon. The carp though its transformation into a dragon displays the ability to resist hurdles and achieve success. Communicating in the 21st century not only requires command over words and imagery but also command over the technology that delivers this information to an audience. Dragon Gate Design integrates technology and design to build communication systems that jump over these hurdles and help successfully deliver information through web and print mediums. I was also born in the year of the Dragon, so I adopted the khoi fishas part of my logo during the first design.
