Resurgence


Sorry for being gone for a while. The reason for my long absence was due to my involvement in a summer enrichment program called Summer Bridge. This program helped familiarize me with the college I’ll be attending, SDSU (San Diego State University). I enjoyed my experiences and accustomed to managing an academic life and a social life. I spent at least 10 hours or more juggling classwork from two classes as well attending activities such kayaking at a beach or explore racial discrimination in a social justice group session. The program lasted for 31 days and feel like a better person from being involved in it. No doubt I will be prepared for when I’ll enter my real college setting on August 29th.

Since I feel bad for missing out on posting tutorials and other things. I’ll post some tutorials/tips this week on.

I fixed the logo up a bit from last time and changed the flier design as well. I’ve also worked on translations for this flier which include Arabic and Spanish translation. Click the flier thumbnail to see the Arabic translation. I’ll also be getting paid for my efforts.

Since typing Arabic in Illustrator gave me such a huge hassle. I’ll post in a tip on how to bring in Arabic text into Illustrator.

Gradual Change


With the events after the art show, I had ran out of things to work on. With day after day, I decided to help some students with tutorials they follow such as mine or others. Luck would have it, no one has worked on an iParent poster and that the competition for Got Plans was still open. With those two in mind, I decided to put some effort in these last days of high school.

This is the final efforts on my Got Plans? poster. I will have an exuberant amount of time for the iParent poster, which is what my current focus is as of now.

I will make a tutorial on how to create a cork-board effect in Illustrator.

iParent, Again!


iParent committee wanted more changes on the iParent poster and notecard and so I went to fix them. Here is what I just finished.

EDIT: I changed the times on the notecard and poster to 8:00 am – 1:00 pm.

RE-EDITS: Again, I changed the information in the bubble (poster and note card) and removed the “Food/Drinks provided…” line.

iParent, Got Plans? Translations, and Tutorials


I haven’t given any updates in a while that was because I was trying to enjoy my summer. I did manage to improve/fix changes on iParent as you can see (<——).

Changes: Removed my vector GUHSD logo and put in the original GUHSD logo (given as psd) (poster/notecard); added a picture in the notecard, removed Save the Date on the poster, and removed “workshops to include” on the poster as well.  The community seems to like it.

Got Plans?: Skocko told us of an opportunity to translate the Got Plans? postcard, flier, and poster. Chris and me split the job. Chris did the Spanish translations and I did the Arabic. Chris had it easy while I had go through detours to type Arabic and put it on the psds. Photoshop CS5 can’t type Arabic without breaking the letters so I had to use GIMP to read and write over it with Arabic text. Skocko plans to get an Arabic/Spanish versions of Photoshop to not have to deal with issues  again.  Click these public links to view my translations:

9/3/10: Today, I went to help out in the Mac Lab. I never informed anyone so it was a surprise. The team (Kyle W., Phillip B., Chris C., Christian L.) was already setting/cleaning up things. We had a lot to do (cleaning screens+mouses+tablets, setting up computers+ethernets, etc.) and we did finish by 5:00. And going to Alberto’s wasn’t so bad neither.

Tutorials: I haven’ made any tutorials this summer and I’m really sorry for that but I start working on some starting today and for the rest of the week! I’m posting a new tutorial tonight.

News: The AVID shirts I made for Mr. Fanning was well-liked by the principal that he ordered shirts for the staff to wear on Wednesdays.
