Been wanting to incorporate some imagery into the personal “logo” for a while but struggled to find something that struck the right chord with me. A while back I was having a laugh with a friend about LinkedIn and for some fun I put my title down as “Archangel”.
Well the more I thought about it the more I kinda liked it and last night I finally finished the first draft of what will hopefully become my new bootloader. Gotta love customising stuff for the hell of it ;-)
I then tweaked it a bit more for a bit more of a 3D effect which I was after for the bootloader pic. Pretty happy with the overall effect although will play a bit more when I get some free (excuse me while I laugh) time.
Given a brief to keep it basically black + white but make it interesting I came up with this depth of field shadow type effect. Pretty happy with it overall and will be playing with these effects a bit more in other areas to see what they might produce :)
In this video from the 99U 2013 Conference Simon Sinek explains some of the biology behind leadership. Now that may not sound like a ground breaking topic but I couldn’t stop watching and I feel my understanding of what makes a leader and why has grown tremendously. Enough said really … just watch it!
Wow – to say I’ve been busy is an understatement but I didn’t think it had been that long since I posted. Well here’s hoping I can be a bit more regular – need to write more anyway ;-)
So read this awesome tutorial on Abuzeedo about a cool portrait effect and thought I’d have a crack. Reasonably happy with the results as it happens!
