I still hate you

February 21, 2009

yes you, Adobe Flash, i’m talking about you.

I HATE YOU.

just wanted to get that out of the way.

so I just found out today that we can apparently use sites like flashkit and such. I’ve been using tutorials and things like that, but I’ve just learned we can take premade things and incorporate them to our own use. I’m intrigued. This doesn’t change that I still hate you Adobe Flash. My fury burns hotter than one-thousand hot burning angry angry suns. You are pure evil.

In other news, I found a post on craigslist looking for an art student to illustrate a children’t book, due to budget restraints. I’m interested, but I am unsure if I’ll be able to do this due to my lack of time, and them saying they are on a tight schedule. I’m looking into details, and I’ll cross my fingers and hope things work out!

Media Class: Logo

Feeling inspired today! I’ve got a great little logo idea for Allaus! 🙂 Here’s the looksy, hope you like it. I think it will go great with the coffee-inspired and artsy fun website.

Media Class: Website Research

January 22, 2009

Looking around the town for some local restaurants with websites that are in need of some good design… It’s terribly disappointing that so many restaurants are chain restaurants that already have big flashy (no pun intended) websites.

Flat tire Burgers

Beside Flat Tire, I’d really love to make a page for Cafe de Taipei, because they don’t have a website at all. But I’m not sure if I can do that, so i’ll have to check.

Anyways, Flat Tire is, seriously, like a broken down car, in need of some fixing up. Their images have poor quality, the online menu is extremely difficult to read, and the entire website is in need of something to motive people to learn more about the restraunt.

I think this little college and biker restraunt is in need of a woman’s touch 😉
I wonder what we can come up with… hmmm

What’s the competition cooking? Well, let’s take a look at some of the biggest burger places in the country… like.. Whataburger!

Wow. look at that. Clean, simple, easy to navigate, and with inviting colors and imagery.
But Flat Tire isn’t fast food. What About Red Robin, the ever delicious burger joint?

ok, ok. I’ve pretty much stepped all over Flat Tire. So lets see.. bettery imagery, brighter colors… ok. ok…

I’m going to fix this thing up just dandy.
