Blizzard.com does better, way better

Hello! I haven’t been able to write anything on this blog for the past few weeks because of the high amount of work and deadlines I’ve been trying to chase. What can I say, I love what I do. I was set to launch two websites in three weeks but I’m basically done with one so my time is freeing up a little.

Back in August when I had just launched my site, I wrote about how Blizzard.com can do better with their website. I talked about how their website inspired me to learn web design and development a decade ago and how they seriously needed a makeover.

Giving Back

Giving Back

Humor me for a moment as I give a glimpse of my non-professional life. I promise it has something to do with design and development. Last Saturday, I joined the GCF Youth L.I.V.E. Missions team on an outreach to an urban poor area in Quezon City. For one thing, I did not work a lot during the past week so I thought I might as well do something extremely productive with my time.

Politicians on the Web

Politicians on the Web

It’s that time of the year when politicians start ramping up those television ads and candidates start declaring their intent to run for office. Yes folks, it’s election season here in the Philippines and the web has become another battleground and platform which politicians can utilize.

As we saw in last year’s US Elections, the web was a way that candidates could connect with voters (albeit, they had someone handling their internet presence) and was a platform for them to disseminate information. Judging by the highly successful Obama campaign and website, it seems that candidates can no longer ignore the web as a emerging information platform.

The Living Room Photography Studios

The Living Room Photography Studios

Yesterday, two of my friends and clients Dwight Co and Mye Chung opened their new Photography studio right here in Metro Manila. It’s called the Living Room Photography Studios and it’s located along P.Guevarra. If you are interested in finding a place to shoot, this is a fantastic place to do it and I’m sure you’ll love what they got.

Aside from being a photography studio, they offer photography lessons for all the hobbyists out there. With the dramatic decline in the price of photography gear over the last couple of years, this is an affordable way to finally get the most out of your camera and to hone those budding skills.

Why you should be using HTML powered E-mails

Why you should be using HTML powered E-mails

We’ve all seen them and admired them, or for many, are annoyed by them. Yes, I’m talking about those HTML e-mails which look like a website has been torn and brought right into your inbox. For many of us we will recognize them as the newsletter we get from our favorite online shops or the nice looking alerts we get from our social sites. Unfortunately, sometimes they take the form of unsolicited mail we get offering us a new product we don’t need.

Albeit annoying, no one can deny that the impact of an HTML powered e-mail can bring to mail we do want to have. If your a  freelance worker or a small to enterprise business operation and have not considered sending out HTML powered e-mails for official business, I give you two important reasons why they should be considered.

Blizzard.com can do better

Blizzard.com can do better

Everyone loves Blizzard Entertainment. They brought us three of the most recognized franchises in the electronic gaming industry in Starcraft, Warcraft and Diablo. They own the number 1 online MMORPOG in World of Warcraft. In short, they’re awesome.

So it is to note that I have nothing but respect and admiration for this company. But there’s something else about this website that’s special to me and to which I will forever be indebted to. This very website was the website that got me into web design and development, which in turn, got me into design in general.
