Part of my job is to spot places that need help. Since many business owners have no sense of design, it is my responsibility to be able to communicate my ideas to them in a way that is easy to understand what I am seeing.
Most people know what looks better if they can see a before and after, but perhaps wouldn't have thought of the idea that I'm presenting to them. By doing this, I can shine a light on something that the owners may not realize they needed, then, granted that there is enough budget to work with, we can take their place to the next level.
After analyzing the business concept, I usually develop ad hoc visuals that go with the theme, then I photoshop renderings of different options that would vary dependent on the budget. This restaurant's theme is 'black panthers' and it is a Mexican restaurant. The restaurant is beautifully set up, with brand new everything and exposed brick (which New Yorkers LOVE), and it just needs a little push to take it to the next level.
There are some more design recommendations I would make to this business, however I usually like to build upon the changes in order to make everything work best.
I recently had the pleasure of being invited to a beautiful country home near the city. So I got to take a quick weekend trip to the mountains.
Although by my own decision not to be a country blob/couch potato, I mostly did yard work (making those pine trees look more like bonsai trees), I found it very important to disconnect from my normal routine and work on something else. Connecting with nature is always beautiful, as well as remembering that we are not alone on this earth (this by seeing many other creatures we seldom see in the city in their natural habitats).
I recommend everyone to do the same, even if its by going to a park nearby and appreciating whatever nature you can get yourself to ;)
Working on a new series in which I explore and share what I believe to be important life values.
I love people on a mission. Love your curves.
As you may or may not have noticed (maybe you just hadn't been here before), my website is going through a complete revamp.
I think as a person evolves, everything is to evolve accordingly and public image>>website, is not to be forgotten.
I hope you all find it easier to navigate, as well as more according to my current place in life.
This project is a huge one as I have lots of files to reorder as well as lots of others to document and organize.
Oh well, life is a work in progress ;)
