Blogs Revamped!

Edit: Candeelicious, Dr. Pizzicato, So Haute7
oh god blushberry is in a mess.. i am so ashamed.. the blogs i designed are far more pleasing than my own blog!
i am gonna upgrade this mess to .com soon.. n reorganize everything...
its such an eyesore now.

anyway, i heard from a friend who read fashion truth that a reviewer.. i forgot who is being flamed for using her ad earnings on her boyfriend... it got me really furious...
cuz what we do with our earnings is none of the customer's business.. however harsh that may sound... then I thought... omg.. if i did not do design jobs.. then i'll be in the same position.. using my earnings for personal perusals..but because i have other jobs from 3d... design.. websites..blogs.. all the earnings from blushberry can be invested back into blushberry for the sake of my readers whether izzit for freebies or packagings or events and such..
in case yall dunno.. i really am doing this full time now..


I am still working on website designs now... busy busy..
fyi, for those who took the cheaper alternative can now upgrade their blog design to the complete one by topping up RM 250!

anyway.. updates..


sohaute7.blogspot.com before picture...
She has a shop in PJ.. you should visit her boutique!


This is how her blog looks after the revamp!


This is dr-pizzicato.blogspot.com after the revamp.. I forgot to screenshot the before look.. haha
if you go to her blog.. it might look different... cuz she took the cheaper alternative..
I understand if customers are on a budget constraint and wanna take the cheaper alternative.. but upgrading is always possible at anytime!


candeelicious.blogspot.com after the revamp!
She took the cheaper alternative as well.. so her blog may look a lil different!


Edit:Zarfa Wardrobe and LaBelle Closet


It's been some time since I update this section. I done Zarfa Wardrobe about 2 months ago but I did not upload it cuz I was doing another job that time that ended quite badly.

Everyone is a fan of Oh.Popsicle's design which is the victorian feminine style and frankly, I am sick of doing that style. When the passion is gone, the will to work goes too. But it was alright cuz I always work based on references and clients are usually very pleased with the results other than timeline issues.

The thing is, I had a customer at that point of time who wanted that style and also wanted to experiment alot. 500 bucks for blog design is dirt cheap, let's be honest. it's not even marketable for ONE illustration. So when someone asked for a FEW blog designs experiments.. + colour test + banner tests + layout tests.

I flipped.

In the end she wanted me to plagiarise the reference EXACTLY.
It was a very unfortunate moment for me, cuz I have to reject her offer eventhough the customer paid half of the price already. I refunded her of course.

After that I begin targetting websites instead of blog designs.. cuz I just needed a big break from the oh.popsicles style.

I am back now!
Zarfa Wardrobe Before
She is a very easy person to work with.. cuz she knew exactly what she wanted. She even have references for her logo. Her job was a fly job. Finished within 1 week. I love the outcome as well!

This is her blog after the revamp. You can also check out her blog at http://zarfawardrobe.blogspot.com
Eventhough it was still Oh.popsicles style I was ok with it.. cuz the colour scheme is not pink.
Yes. Everybody wants pink.
Don't ask me why.


After that I was very busy with the Fashion Show and did not have time to do blogs or website.
I meet Chloe from LaBelle in one of my secret getaways. She is very cool.. (and sick at that time too) but she contacted me to do her blog and check this out, she even introduced a new style to me!

I was overjoyed at the prospect of doing a new style, eventhough I have to illustrate every single icon in her blog I did not mind cuz the passion came back!

This is Labelle closet after the revamp.
It was the best job I have worked on.. the inspiration and the workflow was pure pleasure. finished the job in 3 days.
Check it out at labellecloset.blogspot.com

I do not know for sure if I do the customer's job that I rejected now, the job will turn out alright... I am also still at a loss wondering if I am at fault cuz I have NEVER ever rejected a customer before.

Anyway, website + namecard designs are up!

Edit:Fancy Fans, An Old Flame and Chomel 27

This is Chomel 27 before the revamp!

I took damn long to do the header.. cuz I did it in 3d with maya and completed it in Photoshop.
I love it, hence the watermark. hehe.

This was originally the rm 500 design..
but Miss Chomel27 opted for the RM 200 design instead which excludes layout design.

So in the end, this was the result.
This will roughly give you an idea of what you will be getting if you are taking the RM 200 offer instead.

This is a brand new blog, done from scratch.. fancy fans.
She has a boutique in Bangsar, which is already open. I designed her namecard and logo signboard as well.
Will post the photos up when I get them!!
This is the namecard design

And the logo signboard design. Imagine it in red. hehe


I did the header for An Old Flame too..I didn't wanna put this up until Cynthia had uploaded it.
