Cubico - Tongawan Nuptials

7:25 PM
Here are some of the photos of the wedding ceremony of When and Ann. If you saw my previous posts, they were the couple who had the first digital art for their prenup with the butterfly concept. I also posted my layouts of their coffee table book. Their wedding is one of my favorites because of its simplicity, solemnity and very genuine, which is very ironic because their prenup is very extreme and creative. The bride is the focus in the event and it is my first time to see the couple reserved a special time during the wedding ceremony for their parents. They gave their heartfelt thanks to their parents and a simple gift for them. Though i was just a spectator, i was really touched by this. Anyways, here are the photos and there are more photos after jump.

Designer Vocabulary

1:26 AM
Statisticians always use the words population, sample, data, average, mean, conclusion, variance and of course, statistics. Meanwhile, culinary artists use french words in their everyday jobs like a la carte, creme, crepe, cuisine, petit (small), blanch (to bleach), sauté (fried over high heat), fondue (melted), purée (crushed), flambée (burned). Every field has its own set jargons that is vital to their careers. Like statisticians and culinary artists, designers (graphic desingers, web developers, couture, interior designers, architects, etc) also has their commonly used vocabularies. Here is a typographic artwork that gives some designer lingos.

I can really relate to this artwork because there is no day that i don't use the word "design." But what struck me most is the last word, "passion." Since the beginning of my journey of being a newbie designer, i always keep this word in my mind and my heart. Everyone should have a passion, a thing that you love to do and will bring you to greater heights. Sometimes we make mistakes (see what i mean?), which will turn us down and sometimes make us want to give up. We should have a backup fuel that will fire our spirits and stand up and pursue what we really want in life, and that is Passion. A statistician may have a margin of error, a culinary artist may not be a cordon bleu (master chef), but what is important is that we should pour all our hearts in what we do and just enjoy life. :)

7 Deadly Sins of Pop and Cartoon Network

1:25 PM
Wah! Found this awesome stuff in facebook. I just have to share it. It's the 7 deadly sins represented by famous pop singers. Madonna represents Pride, i guess she's very vain and thinks high of her self. Britney is for Sloth maybe because she has nothing to do with her life coz she got it all, fame, money and glory. Lady Gaga is definitely Envious, she has insecurities due to her past but she sucessfully overcome it by revealing her Gaga world. Christina Aguilera is the most obvious, Lust. When she was just starting she was so girly and cute, now she turned into a mature but dirty girl. Her hits, i think, has a subliminal message (like "Come on over baby"). Rihanna is for Wrath because of what happened to her (refer to "Rude Boy"). Mariah is for Gluttony maybe because she's like to devour a lot. And last, Beyonce, the diva, for Greed. Her songs talks about gold-diggin, like "Put a Ring on it", "I need them bags, uh, that money", etc..

I also made by own version of the 7 deadly sins which i already had in mind before i saw the photo above. This is the 7 deadly sins of Cartoon Network where different cartoon characters represent the 7 sins. Bloo is for Pride because he is so arrogant and thinks he's the best imaginary friend ever. Courage is for Sloth because cowardice is also a form of sloth. Princess is for envy because she wants to be a powerpuff girl. Sedusa is for Lust because she uses her sex appeal to lure guys. Mandy is for wrath because it seems that she is always angry. My ever favorite Chowder is for gluttony because his world revovles around food. And last, Eddy for Greed, coz he's, well, greedy. :D

Don't forget to comment! If you have other 7 deadly series/collection in mind, don't hesitate to tell me :D
