Been on a job for Essent or 2 months, besides that doing stuff for other clients and holiday. Time for some updates!

Dubstep is officially Dupstep

juli 15th, 2010

WOW! I’ve been witness of a few new music styles in my life, Acidhouse & Techno, Jungle, Grunge (in following order) but I’m begining to believe that Dupstep is going to a whole other level.

It’s slow rithm, it’s very low bass’ and it’s incredible nervous uncontrolable electronic sounds on top of that, makes this a spectacle that I’ve never heard before. At first I thought it was a nice addition and combination of electronic music, but I really underestimated it’s potential!

Listen to this mix:

war-of-the-worlds Dupstep mix by Erwtenpeller

At some point from minute 15 it starts getting good, somewhere between there and 40 minutes it began to sound like if aliens are talking to each other, incredible!!!

Dubstep is now officially a totally new music style!
I’m curious if it will go beyond this, I believe it has all the ingredients to it.

I got to this mix of a new college and friend of mine, THNX Caspar! Strange thing as we were talking about sixties and seventees blues and rock. Okay I did mention I like Dubstep..

Spoor 38, specially for Yvestown visitors

juli 15th, 2010

Visitors from Yvestown will love this, I wanted to post this for a long time for you guys.

Spoor 38 is from a client of mine which I met 10 years ago. Over the years we also became friends. At the time he was working as a sales manager, but his one only dream was to have his own shop in vintage furniture and that dream became Spoor 38.

I helped him designing the logo originating from the old Art Deco logo of the former factories function a creambutter factory. I think it’s really beautiful just like the store. It offers a lot of really antique quite rare vintage collectors items like Jielde lamps, Singer chairs, Louis XVI closets and cabinets, chesterfields, industrial design lamps (the taste the good architect) and many many more.

So I would say take a look around, maybe and if you’re in Holland, visit the store, it’s really worth the trip!

Working for Essent

juli 15th, 2010

One of the main reasons I got so busy is that got a new project at Essent, an energy company in the Netherlands. My join up with Frontend heroes paid out there, THNX Guys.

It’s a nice work environment where I met lots of nice people and new colleges and, off course, new twitter friends!!
I’m working on an intern project in which I do designing and frontend work and discovering Movable Type. Also a nice blogging tool. To show you some designs, these are a few widgets I’ve been working on for a dashboard:

Content management gets a lot easier with CSS3

juli 12th, 2010

A client asked for a nice ‘Polaroid foto effect’, but I didn’t want to get stuck in Photoshopping every photo. So here’s the result.
It won’t show everything in every browser, but it will in most any and all newer browsers.

The effect works as follows:
The border is simply a border, with the bottom border a bit longer.
Constrain your image to a certain measure.
(Now comes the css3 part)
Rotate the image by some percent.
Give it a shadow as final touch

And here you are. It will fit every foto in the same way.
Nice isn’t it?
