Free Tutorial

Actually i was hired by my boss for e-marketing. But i can't find much business for him thru online. Work 10 months i only got 3 customers for him. So, after he hired a marketing exec. He transfer me to did advertising job- like design voucher, newsletter,paperbag , etc...

I told him I am not so familiar with design software. But my boss and my division manager, ignore what i told them keep asking me design this...design that.. Since i am oso interested in designing so i try lo...self thought lo like Uncle Joe....

At first, i was really blur, i only know our corporate colour. And we do not have an official font for our logo and no concept. So my design do not have any concept.. a bit messed-up...Now, my boss hired an Art Director cum graphic designer-Tag. He is my sifu cum "bapa ayam"... He is very good...not kedekut ilmu...he taught me quite a lot. But he got so many things to do la...So i didnt learn much from him yet. I am more familiar with Adobe Photoshop now, currently he is teaching me Macromedia Freehand. Eventhough my gaji...very little but i got free tutorial.... Since Tag came, he started with a new concept. He design all those outlets' advertising stuff. And i design online newsletterI use his concept as a guide to design these...So, i got improve or not?

Actually, i oso got an online "sifu"- Uncle Joe... He taught me how to extract picture and he send me the tutorial for animation. My blog header is the simple animation i did using that tutorial.

What i learn now is more to advertising stuff...Still a lot to learn.....Learn till i can do this...lol...This was edit by Uncle Joe...Uncle Joe very keng...he self-taught eh...

Actually, i like graghic design... Why i didnt knew that last time...if i knew i won't be taking NCC course liao... Now i wanna take graphic design course still can but......boh lui.... nvm la...now i work oso got free tutorial and got salary some more.

Today, i oso did a mini widget for my blog.
widget
Wanna advertise ma? It is a picture link to my blog.I had the code for the widget at my sidebar...In order to share this widget code...i crack my head and ask help every where.... Finally i get the solution from the web........But after i finish everything, i wonder if anyone will add my widget in their site.... But i know one person already did....my bestie- wiwi...
