Web Design in China

March 16th, 2010

Article on Smashing Magazine

China is a country with five thousand years of civilization. It is a multi-national entity extending over a large area of East Asia. China’s cultural influence extends across the continent, with customs and writing systems adopted by neighboring countries including Japan, Korea and Vietnam. China has gone through numerous ups and downs and twists and turns, from wealthy and prosperous (as during the Tang Dynasty back in 618–907 AD) to powerless and colonized (as during the Qing Dynasty, just around 100 years ago). Now China is reopening its door to the world again, embracing the latest trends, concepts and technologies, the World Wide Web being one of them.

Personally I’m not a super fan on Adobe Illustrator, I seldom post illustration on my blog, but I think it’s worth to post this tutorial by George Coghill on Go Media Zine. It will walk you through the steps from sketch to vector – scan drawing, apply action in Photoshop, create vector paths by using the pen tool and vector art tools, in creating an original cartoon-style character vector illustration.

Freeband – The Ambient Life

November 19th, 2009

ambient life
Freeband Communication and IIPIC share a vision of the future: a world in which information and communication technology render one’s surroundings into a thinking and caring environment. The results of the Freeband Communication research program should be visualized in a compelling film. I approached the material using infographics to explain the vast quantities of data. To create a relationship with the continuing technology the film starts with a minimalist introduction in a narrow color spectrum and gradually transitioned to an abundant, multicolored world.

Use Flash to create vector portrait

July 18th, 2009

Vector portrait
Hard to believe people using Flash to create vector portrait but this tutorial on Flashtuts+ shows how it can be done in vector based application other than Illustrator. I think the author Jacqueline Thomas did pretty good job on this tutorial. She tried to prove that Flash isn’t only about mathematics and complicated action scripts.
