MoM Blog Design

In Uncategorized on October 18, 2010 at 7:00 am

For the redesign of the MoM blog we agreed on several issues: we wanted to make better use of screen real estate; we wanted to present more postings in a single overview; the presentation of the postings should be more inviting and engaging. We decided on a layout based around time-based hierarchy, giving the most recent posts more space on the front page, and set out to each make individual designs around these concepts. I was to concentrate on fonts and colour schemes.

Inkscape Adventures

In Uncategorized on October 11, 2010 at 2:32 pm

So, I messed around a bit in Inkscape and watched some tutorials. When it came to making a drawing however, I started too late too actually get anywhere. And I kept hitting these annoying snags, like not being able to erase small sections of an object. This is as far as I got. I don’t like it all, but hey. Read the rest of this entry »

Students vs Teachers- Fight!

Not really though. The ASVA has been organizing a teacher of the year award for the UvA for quite some years now, and this years they branched out to the HvA as well. To promote this momentous (not really though) event, they asked Hot Stuff Media to make a promotional video. We went around asking students and teachers what they thought a good theacher should be.

…or in a brewery, which is as close to heaven as anything here on earth will get. This is one of the last videos I made with Hot Stuff Media, the short lived company a friend and I had started somewhere back in 2008 or so.

Not So Much A Blog

In Uncategorized on September 13, 2010 at 6:08 pm

I don’t really like blogs. The whole exhibitionist, look-at-me aspect of blogging never appealed to me. Of course, today “blog” has become a blanket term for any website that is not part of a traditional media corporation. Somehow editorial, commentary and aggregation sites have all become conflated under the “blog” name, and the traditional, private, exhibitionist style of blogging has migrated over to social sites such as Facebook and Twitter. It’s good to know there are still places one can turn to to read what some complete stranger had for lunch today. As for this site though, I guess I’ll upload some of the videos I’ve made over the years. Just to get something up here. Because honestly, I can’t even remeber what I had for lunch today.
