Design; Just Another Old Hobby

*my simple gollum concept for magic show... it's quite difficult to design those white faces in adobe..*


i was just doing a quick browse on my notebook when i found a lot of my design collection back then. I used to do a lot of design during those years.. infact, i used to be a freelance designer for some distribution Stores *distro* in Bandung *yang sangat menjamur ituuu* and other time i can be a designer for everything-i-can-do, if my freinds need my hand. Well, i'm not saying that i'm a pro designer... actually i never had basic formal skill such as design diploma or a short course as for my background. That time, I was totally focus to the S.H thing and juggling between my daily life and my schools. So i guess, i was just have this-very-lil-sense-of-art-with-very-lil-capability-on-using-those
-softwares-and-combine-with
-my-mood, instead of being a pro one.
It's a hobby. As a matter of fact, i don't really care about the pay, i do it for my self.. for my pleasure especially for mental healing...


Today, it's not that i neglecting my old hobby since i found a new one *which is scuba diving!!*, but i just don't have much time anymore for that.. You see, living in Jakarta means you have to face a very limited time with lots activities. The only way i can do design thing is after office hour and sometimes the mood for design itself has gone when i reached home... Gone along with Jakarta's traffic jam! *Arrrghh... hate the traffic!*
If only i have more times...


Oneday, my sister asked me, what if i do some designs for this company (where she works now), and then i think, if the pay's worth, then i'll do it. This time i won't do it as a hobby.. It depends on how much they will pay me. Why? I just tried to make this hobby into a pro one isntead of wasting my mood because of Jakarta's traffic. Who knows... i can earn much money from it...

Padahal bagi gue itu disain minim sekali loh ;p

Tapi emang paling seneng kalo ngeliat ada orang yg make baju hasil disain diri sendiri..lebih seneng daripada terima bayarannya, heueuheu

hehehe thank's ya cip..mungkin bakat terpendam dan salah jurusan wkt kuliah kali yak? hihi.. Softwarenya banyak, mulai dari grup adobe, corel, sampe flash. seumur2 cuma punya 1 biji buku contoh2 disain, sisanya mengandalkan kemampuan otak merekam apa yg pernah diliat, huehuhueue...
