Make the Red Heart of China graphic

http://designc7.com/journal/tech/make-the-red-heart-of-china/

Hey, there, feeling like I haven’t posted here for a long long time, don’t like it, for me. So I am back here again. Well, really, I am busy working on 2(maybe 3) small projects in the same time in the past week and right now. Finally I get some time to have you this post.

OK, here I just want to share a small Photoshop tutorial with you. You know, I worked on the “Client Testimonies” Pages design for the client, she wanted to have a “Red Heart of China”(what is it?) image on the background. So I made one. It looks not bad, shiny and Mac-aqua style.

Travel to Nan Putuo Temple

Yesterday though I was pretty busy working on a Graphic Design for a client and the due time is closing, but I went with my other 3 friends when they called me and “dragged” me over and over again to go with them, the reason they gave out is that I’ve stayed at home for a long long time, I am going to be crazy. No, I won’t be, I am sure that. The reason is funny, anyway, they just wanted me to go with them. Well, I thought I can finished the rest of that project at night, and the place we would go is really beautiful, well, there’s another reason is that we have a pretty girl in our team :) …

Something else about Opera

http://designc7.com/journal/design/something-else-about-opera/

Opera, it is well known as a web browser, has the simple, attractive, shiny-new and human interface and features, and as another different part from the other browsers, its color is Red – “Safari”:http://www.apple.com/safari/ is Gray and “Firefox”:http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/ is Orange and Blue, “IE”:http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/ie/default.mspx is Blue – I like red color a little more :)

Well, here I am not talking about the details of Opera with you, I think someone like the big fan of Opera might know much more than I do about it. Here I just want to share something interesting about Opera with you…

Photo diary

It was a pretty sunny day yesterday, after I finished some projects in the last 4 weeks and am still waiting for some clients’ responds about my designs, I get a few days for doing something I like. I am free in these few days, I mean. So I got a plan to put the project’s documents in order, such as the wireframes of the projects – they are pretty disorder, and something else, I was thinking about it before I fall asleep :( I thought I can not waste my time whenever I was at – and BTW, IE6 is suck to waste my time, I have to fight with it in anytime when I am at work...

More Cooliris screenshots

http://designc7.com/journal/life/more-cooliris-screenshots/

Hey there! After one day trying the cool “Cooliris”:http://www.cooliris.com application, I found it is really interesting and useful, and much more fun than exploring in the other normal browsers or other media players. You don’t have to look at something that around hundreds or thousands of words on a single page now, I mean, you can look at something with a single picture around a few words – you know ““A picture is worth a thousand words”:http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/a-picture-is-worth-a-thousand-words.html “, and on hundreds of pages in the same time…

Did you even get frustrated after you keep getting this error when you get to the stage where either iPhoto, Toast or just the Finder start to burn a CD or DVD? I did recently. I was spending more than one day to fight with this disk burn issue! Here is the error message I receive in Toast:
sense key=medium error
sense code=0x73, 0x03

Finally I get this problem fixed after I tried following the solutions in Help document of Finder…

As someone has left a Testimonial on his flickr profile page: “The best street photographer I have ever seen. Period.” I pretty do agree with that guy and plus, I want to say, there are the most interesting photos he has taken I have ever seen, on this planet. There is the slideshow of the Set, really interesting, all of the photos, just take a look, hope you enjoy them also :D

Have fun with 404 pages

http://designc7.com/journal/design/have-fun-with-404-pages/

You might be confused when you see this picture, well, there’s nothing went wrong, buddy, that is an illustration I designed for the 404 page of my site, you could meet it when you are getting something wrong about the page no-found error.

In shortly, the 404 page is that page appearing when you are coming across the page-found error or something like that on a website.

Have my hair cut, finally

http://designc7.com/journal/design/have-my-hair-cut-finally/

You know, I am lazy to do something, like going to the barber’s shop to get my hair cut.

It has been one month since I was back to Xiamen, to work for some projects. This married guy got me the projects – small and big when I was resting at my hometown, I was “lured”, I knew. Anyway, I was so happy and had a great time with my family when I was at my hometown. So I worked on the projects, day by day, there’s my pretty busy life during last month when I was working on the projects, well, I am working on the other project right now, also. Quiet tired but enjoyment. So I even forgot to have my hair cut, one month later, my hair is long enough to get cut, but I didn’t go, I am lazy, really, haha.
