The Cupcake Dealer

Last summer, I hadn’t thought of doing commissions until my best friend’s closest college friend asked me if I could make a blog design for her cupcake business. Since it was so boring and I needed money, I agreed. 

The blog was launched a few weeks ago. I’ve tasted some of her cupcakes and they’re delicious! You should try it!

Thanks to her, she opened the doors for me. For now, I won’t be accepting commissions and will just focus first on school and org work. 

Recruitment 101

Making logos is my weakness, but I am very proud of the logo that I have made for Recruitment 101! The theme for this year’s something festive and each organization was assigned to a certain Philippine festival. So I came up with this logo idea.

I started with a sketch, but only for the first “1.”

Transforming it into a digital illustration was my favorite part. As for the other “1,” I duplicated this illustration and just changed the features to make it look like a girl.

For the background, they wanted the color to be orange for it looked rather livelier. I added a vector illustration of the Main Building and some clouds so it wouldn’t look dull. I based the floor on the Plaza Mayor’s. I used this photo as a guide for the illustration.

It seemed incomplete, so I decided to put some colorful retro curves and swirls.

Tada! I’m really happy with the output.

To all Thomasians out there, join the festivity and add flavor to your college life! I promise, you won’t regret it. Recruitment week’s from August 11 to 15. See you at the Plaza Mayor!

Hi guys, sorry if I haven’t answered your questions right away.
There’s no internet in my dorm (the pocket wi-fi’s useless) and my laptop charger’s broken. 😩🔫

if you would still use your flickr would you put a watermark?

I guess not. Haha.

hi humphrey! nice work with the themes! regarding the dropdown menu themes, is there a way you could make it cascade (i.e. a menu item would drop down categories, then each category when hovered on, would show each entries? thanks! :)

Thank you! You mean a drop down within a drop down menu? I haven’t tried that but I’ll see haha. Though, I don’t know when will I be able to do it because I’m really busy with school. :(
