Photos of the Week - Tokyo, Germany and California

A couple of weeks ago I shared some photos I took last year. The main goal was, one, to share high resolution images, and two, to create an incentive for me to take more photos.

Web Design Inspiration: Carloct.com

It’s that time of the year that I am thinking about redesigning both my personal website and the blog. With this phase comes a lot of browsing thru inspiration examples of web design. Some are new, some are old but it’s always nice to see what it’s out there. I know that I am also stuck to simple, black and white, editorial design-like style. No neo-skeuomorphism just yet.

Simplicity in Design at its best with B+W

Simplicity is the biggest challenge for any designer. Well, at least it’s for me as I constantly battle to find ways to reduce elements, colors and pretty much anything without sacrificing usability.
