Brew Meister Update

Im finally understanding this huge photoshop files layers. Im about 80 percent done and look to finish this evening. It's looking great! Can't wait for my class to see it tomorrow. This is an awesome project since the iphone is big in the world and learning how to design apps is crucial to how we end up in the job market. I look forward to trying to come up with more ideas for apps and maybe design a few more this summer. I can't wait to go to borders and get some more design books and software books to get inspired!!! In the words of the Dos Equis man, 'Stay Thristy My Friends'.

Iphone App

So I am now 100% focused on this final project for Web 2: The Iphone App. I am doing an app for all those people who love their beer. Not the Domestic beer...this is for those who like to spend a bit of money on their beer and love good taste. The title is Brew Meister. It is for all those beer enthusiasts who want to find all the microbreweries they can and soak up the beer. Options such as Find a Brewery with GPS Location and Brew Scan are equipped in this app. I hope to get this app looking good by the weeks end. So here I go!

Well i've gotten the design pretty much layed out for this site and just finished a mock site in Dreamweaver. Click on the link to check out my progress. Im pretty happy with the turnout and look forward to working on it more and actually get the site up and running. The biggest challenge is the chat service and profile creation. Well i hope to learn over time and hopefully can find designers to contribute and help with the site.

I officially bought the domain names for my portfolio site and my web 2 project they may turn into something hopefully big. My idea, Design HQ, would be a non-profit like design community for designers and artists alike to post inspiration or talk about design itself. There will be a chat server like facebook or aim for this site called Critique. It's where designers can upload working progress for others to see and receive feedback from other designers. A store will be on the site to sell books, designers work and other goodies. Design Headquarters will receive no funds whatsoever. It is a free site for designers to create an account and network amongst others. It will team up with my classmates website to help with job postings and golden opportunities. I also want a section called Creative Brief to be a star on the site. It will be a fun activity for designers to keep their minds fresh and explore numerous projects ranging from print such as identity, packaging, or poster design to web site design layouts to flash movies. Once i hit the ground running i am going to need some help with other designers input and programmers. Hope this baby works. Just bought a name for it for 10 bucks! Keep designing well my friends!!!

Senior Review today!

I am so relieved that my portfolio and process book is done. I think I did a good job and did my best to showcase my work. I was done a week before the deadline which was a huge relief only until DCI screwed up my brochure. Couldn't even fold it, it was so thick. DCI couldn't print it double sided and to top it off, it wasn't even cellmounted together! :( . I then took it to Albert Screenprint and they did a fantastic job they were able to print it double sided and printed it with UV ink so it looked amazing. Got my process book on time from Apple and it looks amazing as well. I wish the best of luck to all of you that are in the review with me and look forward to hearing some good news...hopefully :)
