Realized I haven’t posted on this blog since new years, just been so busy (but honestly, I’m just lazy to blog.. haha). Was going through my “archives” recently, and found a project I did for school in my 3rd year at Emily Carr University. Just a simple experimental infographic on coffee. Everyone who knows me, knows I love coffee, but it’s always nice to find a project I did years ago and still (kinda) love it.
I only did it this for presentations at school, so I didn’t bother “browser debugging”, so if you’re using a browser that’s not Firefox or Chrome/Safari, I can’t guarantee that it’ll work (ok fine, below is also a video of what it looks just in case)
Wishing you all a happy holidays and a happy 2013! Been so busy recently that I haven’t gotten a chance to update this blog or my site. Lots of new exciting stuff happening for 2013, so I’ll try to keep you all posted.
Finally got the some new cards printed. It’s printed with spot uv on a matte laminate cardstock, so the uv parts shine at different angles in the light. Kept the design simple and minimalistic, just like how Iike my stuff. What do you guys think?
Yes, it’s an iPhone App! Here’s a quick preview of a couple screens for now.
Shopping done in excess is a serious issue and a growing problem everywhere. People addicted to compulsive shopping need to be aware that they do in fact have a problem and should get help. I believe that a solution can be aimed towards stopping shopaholics at the point of purchase— before they make an impulse purchase —because this exercises their self-control and will help correct their compulsive shopping habits.

This app will be available in the iTunes App store this Summer, so stay tuned!
More details coming soon…
So like the many thousands of websites out there, joystudio joined the #SOPASTRIKE too! What does that mean? Well, my website went on blackout with everyone else participating for the 12 hours (8am EST to 8pm EST)–Wikipedia and a bunch of other sites are doing it for the full 24hours, but my handy little plugin only lasts for the 12 hours. I do however have the cute little badge on the upper right corner of my site to show my support.
So how did #blackoutSOPA feel like? Scary! Imagine SOPA and PIPA passes and your website gets shut down just like that. Although it is an american legislation, us canadians should still get our voices heard! The internet affects everyone.
Hi guys! Hope you’ve all enjoyed your holidays. Been a crazy 2011, lots of projects for both work and school. But compared to the previous years, I’ve really focussed alot of time into my final year of design school. (Afterall it is the last year and better make the best out of it) If you’ve been following me on twitter, you might’ve already noticed all the late night tweets (or I guess early morning, for some), but yay for #604insomnia!
Anyway, I will (eventually) put up some of the work I’ve done last semester, but it’s just been a busy start to the new year, and thanks to the flu/cold bug going around, I was forced to slow down and take it easy. Been sick since new years and it appears that I’m still sick. Being sick is definitely not my ideal kind of start this year but as somewhat of an optimist, not going to let some stupid bug bring me down. Lots of new projects ahead this year, really excited!
Oh, and below is just a little sneak peek of one of my projects I did for type class. Will update my portfolio section soon, promise.
After almost 4 years of launching the original joystudio website, a new design was due. I know, took me long enough right? So here it is, Version 2.0 (beta)! It’s only a soft launch though–still need a bit more fine-tuning, testing and browser debugging..etc etc. Thoughts? Let me know what you think of the new design!
ps. view in ie6 at your own risk, if your computer explodes don’t say I didn’t warn you!
It’s been awhile since I last blogged, this summer was just soo busy! Anyway, here is the last assignment I did for my typography class (comd 204) over the summer. It was basically designing our own modular typeface. Overall, I really enjoyed the assignment, but I wouldn’t say I am 100% satisfied with what I came up with, but with the time restrictions and everything going on, I would say I’m at least 80% satisfied.
I still can’t believe summer is almost over, but the sad part is that it has to end with rainy weather this week. TypicalRaincouver life.
Anyway, stay tuned for more posts of my design work (hopefully it won’t take me another month to post, haha). Happy Tuesday!
This is a video project I did with my classmate Jennifer C for design core (DESN 210). It’s still pretty rough, and probably needs a better ending.. but oh well! It was due today. Maybe in the future I will polish this piece up, but for the time being, just enjoy!
