2 weeks walking around NYC and Toronto, Canada all day, taking pictures trying new food, buying things, is in fact more tiring than relaxing! Snapped alot of pictures, uploaded a selected few (which is still alot!), the pictures can be viewed at:

Finally a 3rd version coming soon. FCUKstar awards is in my opinion, a direct alternative to the FWA. Both features outstanding websites but the selection criteria is a little different. The FWA is geared towards more media rich websites with 3D and video content while FCUKstar gives credit to websites with a much sleeker feel.

Version 3 coming later, not sure how late is later, but be sure to look out!



Check out Hi-ReS! interview by Apple. Hi-ReS!, founded by Florian Schmitt and Alexandra Jugovic, his wife and creative partner in 1999 and recently acquired by Syzygy Group, builds its intriguingly imperfect, immersive experiences with the help of Mac applications such as Adobe Creative Suite, Final Cut Studio, Logic, and Autodesk Maya. â??The Mac puts everything in one place,â? says Hi-ReS! Creative Director Florian Schmitt. He also mentioned that for the first time they’re able to do anything anywhere with the new line of Macbook Pro. Apparently the new powerful line of Macbook Pros are capable of being a substitute for desktop machines. Find out more about their creative processes.

Not sure how it can be done but it must be done”.

Here’s one that I developed for the movie 30 Days of Night (click on banner to replay) for Qais Consulting (I know, banner looks pixellated but this is what I call – compromise – for file size restriction), I would like to share with you my experience while developing this innocent looking banner which only weighs 29.7kb.
