Hi! We design beautiful templates.

Latest Work

I've recently published Graphikapinoymag. A free downloadable graphic design magazine in support of the Filipino creative. On this first issue, we featured Inksurge, Dan Matutina, and Camille del Rosario. It was a tedious job, but worth the cause. Expect the next issue to be as wicked as the first! Issues are published every second week of the month. So see you there!
Graphikapinoymag is now available!

The 1st Annual FindYourArtSchool.com Young Adult Art Competition is
geared towards helping current and prospective art students gain
market exposure through the competition, as well as rewarding their
outstanding talents with financial support. There is no constraint
regarding topic or media. Artists are given the full stage to show off
their talent and we are anticipating that thousands of visitors will
be coming daily to see their works.
Everyone is welcomed to submit art works, only those age 16-35 are
eligible to win prizes. Even some artists might be outside of the age
range, it still worth the 2 min to submit the artworks since it is an
excellent platform for them to show off their talents! (Watermark the
artwork with contact information could be a good practice, but
absolutely not required.) Artists are welcomed to submit multiple art
works to enhance your chance of wining. They can also invite your
friends to help vote for them. It is not cheating, since everybody
needs the initial push to get the artwork out in front of the
audiences. And in order to win, a piece of art work will need much
more votes than "friends" can offer. It is statically impossible to
"cheat" =D

1st Place $2500, 2nd Place $600, and 3rd place $400.

On my recent blog regarding the recall of mattel products in the market, Nokia too began to recall dangerous cellphone batteries (BL-5C series) for some of their models. One of the stories is about a housewife charging her new expensive cellphone when it suddenly exploded. Quickly she took pictures and documented what happened then sent it to Nokia.
Overcharging of battery is not new in regards to Nokia products as we laymen know. It may also be a cause of short circuit for some phones and which may not work. Thus when you overcharge a Nokia cellphone and got it damaged along the process, sure as hell your friendly neighborhood store won't replace the product (this is in regards to the Philippines). My hunch is that, Nokia knew it all along but didn't mind it until a case might be filed to them. Swell! Their sales could surely feed a starving third world and they can't even perform their obligations for their consumers' safety. C'mon guys admit it.
