News Update

4-10-2018 ....News Update 47

I gave my Calvin-Academy students a test recently to see if they could apply their Adobe Illustrator skills (taught by my graphic design faculty head, Grant Netherlands) to a real practical project challenge.

Unlike other colleges, I give my students REAL projects. This means that they had to design a banner for a real computer company which was NOT just imaginary as other colleges simply "make up" project assignments.

Although there was still a lack of creativity in most of the results, there is no doubt that their technical ability with Illustrator exceeded expectations. When students handed in their projects which they all passed, I could use Matthew's design ideas (gradient fill and pattern background) to present to the owner.

The changes I made was small (changed the direction and the colour of the gradient-thats all) which the owner of LnR Computers approved and the banners were printed.
Well done to all!

I want all my students to enjoy the short holiday break further and come back on the 9th Oct. refreshed and ready to learn web design during the last term of the year.

Although there are many good values by which we all live, I believe it important, in fact, necessary that each one of us must form and know immediately what our top 3 values are by which we constantly live by...
Mine is:
1. Truth.
Truth is truth, yet many people will gloss over the hard facts and continue to justify their ways when it suits them.

2. Respect.
It is important to tolerate every person but respect is earned. Also, you cannot truly respect another person if you don't respect yourself first.

3.Personal growth.
Striving to become a better person daily in terms of being a person of strong principles and moral character is essential as one can become blind to one's own faults in time.
A healthy awareness and trying hard each day to become a better person is important. In fact, all the values that I chose for my life is important and inter-woven like a tapestry. I look at the tapestry of my life daily as I meditate and make sure that it does not become unravelled but becomes larger and more beautiful each day. This is no easy task but I am committed.

Here is a link to my website where I have posted my
value/ fact I have written a DESIGN FOR MY LIFE which you are welcome to read as I believe it forms the basis of all my business success in the past and will continue to guide me in the future as well....maybe it could become source of inspiration for you as well:
