Hi, I’m Brian Dys — a photographer from the inside looking out · a composer entangled in electronic music · a UX designer · a spouse, a parent, & everything in between.
Just the right luck, I chanced upon Toolbox theme in WordPress. It doesn’t have any clothing if it were human. I am building this site from the ground up. Well, not really because this theme, at least, has a style.css in it.
I’ll be documenting the changes thru screenshots and I will post it in each entry.
We could try going Adobe Creative Cloud instead of buying CS6 and licenses.
This one would cost $49.99 a month for a 1-year plan. That’s roughly P30,000 a year per account compared to P111,800 CS6 Master Collection which will be superseded by CS7(?) after a year.
It’s like Master Collection but with a yearly fee and cloud storage.
Check out the Adobe Buying Guide to compare costs.

What is Creative Cloud?
Adobe® Creative Cloud™ is the digital hub that lets you download and install every Adobe Creative Suite® 6 application; access online services for file sharing, collaboration, and publishing; and benefit from new apps and features as soon as they’re released — giving you the freedom to create anything you can imagine.
Here’s a screenshot of Adobe CS6 I recently installed thru Creative Cloud trial (will expire in 30 days):
Chikka version 6 is currently under development. The best way to describe its being is taking your smartphone and putting it in front of your desktop computer (that’s how Mikey demoed it). Think of it as your phone inside your desktop computer or tablet.
It shows the Message Inbox instantly with your text and voice messages. Yes, you can send real-time voice messages thru Chikka. There’s also Contacts — just like your regular smartphone or mobile phone.
I remember requesting for this book to be added to the UI library after seeing it somewhere over the internet — it being a good starting point for the broad world of typography. It’s been sitting for a while now on our desk and it’s time to flip its pages.
As user interface designers, it is important for us to equip ourselves even with a slight familiarity of typography’s history. Wikipedia briefly defines typography as, “the art and technique of arranging type, type design, and modifying type glyphs.” Maybe we won’t get into modifying type glyphs but for sure, we’ll tinker with some types in Photoshop for those mock-ups later on.
If you use this book as a guide, by all means leave the road when you wish. This is precisely the use of a road: to reach individually chosen points of departure. By all means break the rules, and break them beautifully, deliberately and well. That is one of the ends for which they exist. Source: Foreword, p. 10
Robert Bringhurst suggests no rules and restrictions in his book. “Use the book as reference and do your own thing,” he might say.
Sleepy. Unproductive. Still finding the momentum.
