Mungkin Anda pernah membaca istilah ‘Content is King‘, yang menceritakan bahwa content adalah segala-galanya bagi sebuah website. Benar, content is still the king anyway, tetapi seorang raja tidak akan bisa menjalankan segala aktivitas tanpa adanya bantuan dari menteri dan staf dari berbagai departemen.
Demikian juga dengan sebuah media online. Website tetaplah menjadi ‘raja’ dari aktifitas online. Tetapi, untuk menarik pengunjung serta mengkonversinya, dibutuhkan bantuan dari luar website itu sendiri. SEO, social medias, blog, email campaign and web analytics merupakan beberapa lembaga departemen yang bertugas membantu sehingga tercapai tujuan akhir website tersebut yaitu peningkatan brand awareness dan sales.

These are 3 web based image editing applications you can use to solve the problem. Just try and see which one is suitable for you. (more…)
After a couple of weeks busy with the concept and design, finally we launched our new Beegamax.com. The old black one has been around for around 2 years now and we thought it is the time for a change.
HTC has just announced its new Touch Diamond. First look at the pictures, it’s not the front side that attract me but the back side. The non-flatted surface gives shiny diamond-like effect. The smart phone is designed by San Fransisco based One & Co, collaborating with HTC Taiwan design team. Hundreds of materials were tested before the finished products.
Can’t wait till it come to Indonesia, wondering how the real surface look and feel like. Sometimes, we can’t judge a product by only looking at the picture. Anyway, starting from the first XDA O2, HTC’s products are always good in design.
“Ok, that’s cheap. Let them do the thing.”
These are words we hear too often as a service provider. I really feel helpless when I hear this. Some people just can’t think what are the consequences of buying something cheap. Yes, I know not everything cheap means bad, but normally most of them do. Let’s take an example of a mobile phone. There’re ranges of many brands, types and price. From the cheapest one to the most expensive one. Even if you buy the cheap one, you can still have the basic features like make phone call, text messaging, polyphonic ringtones, camera, etc. But if you buy the one with higher price, you should be able to do more thing with your mobile, mp3 player, video player, camera with higher resolution, video call, etc., beside the basic features.
In creative designs, surely the rules play. The higher you pay, the better result you get. I’ve seen many designers (or mostly college students) advertise their cheap price rather than quality. The cheapest I can see in Jakarta is Rp300,000 for a complete static website. Wow.. I mean wow.. I really love to see how the design look like . I can bet quality is not a concern here. The design won’t help your business. We all should notice that beforehand. (more…)
What’s the biggest problem of your life as a designer (or web designer specifically)? Designer’s Block? Yes, it is when all you can do is only sitting in front of your computer and doing nothing but staring at the screen. Your brain is empty and you’re totally blank of ideas.
Being creative is not waiting the idea to come across your mind. Deadline is getting nearer and nearer. You should know how and where to be inspired.
To get you started, why don’t you browse this list of web design inspiration sites. All you need to do is just pick one of them with your eyes closed, browse through the site and you should get a blink of idea playing. If one is not enough, then you still have your second chance. (more…)
This should be a very common questions every designers faced. A designer started to work on a project for a client and some of them require revisions that last forever. it never ends until a couple of months or sometimes years.
Can you imagine doing a simple web design works which is being revised for 40 times? And the work is completed after almost one year? I bet some of you do have this problem.
Some of you might have lose your mind and want to scream the hell out but couldn’t able to do it because your neighbor might knock your door and scream back at you or call the police if you do so. So what exactly the best way you should do?
This problem has definitely have lots of negative impacts. I could sum up some of them here based on my experiences:
- Confusion in the design directions
- Too much time and energy spent in just one work
- Feel boring about the projects which led to worse result
- When will I get paid?
Well, it is just 10 months since the latest Adobe Products’ rebranding which came out with the periodic table logos. Not really sure why they bring out another new logo. However, I’m thinking it will be a confusion on their consistency in branding, though it’s only for the Photoshop Family products, such as: Photoshop CS3, Photoshop CS3 Extended, Photoshop Lightroom, Photoshop Elements, Photoshop Album Starter Edition, and coming soon Photoshop Express.
I guess it is designed based on the Web 2.0 style. The logo shows a “P” (beside many other thoughts on its shape, like the iChat of Apple or a speech bubble), but it just look a bit out of their branding before. (more…)
