Qdesigninc.com’s Professional FaceBook Page
I’ve finally set up a professional page on Facebook for my business - Qdesigninc - I am a web and print designer. I’ve been designing for a long time and absolutely love the challenge and variety of design projects I’ve been fortunate enough to work on over the years. The link is:
Can you take a second and like the page for me? I’d *really* appreciate it.
P.S. If you’re not on FB and want to see my work visit - http://qdesigninc.tumblr.com
Someone asked me recently what I do for a living? I’m a print and web designer who dabbles in photography. The artwork above is a UI/Site Design for Sweet Home Farm Granola. I like clean, simple, design with personality. TO se more of my work, my NEW corporate site — Qdesign Inc. — went live this afternoon - http://www.qdesigninc.com/ for on-gong work and some in-progress stuff, I’m qdesigninc.tumblr.com
If you have ever been curious about my work, please feel to take a look. And if you, or anyone you know is looking for design work —print or web — please feel free to pass along the link.
I’d appreciate it.
The Client LOVED It!
We had one of those rare meetings this afternoon, the one where the client loves the first piece shown and doesn’t even want to see the other options we’d put together for them. In truth they chose well. They chose a design that is simple, but perfectly suited to their business.
Funny, it’s not what they *thought* they wanted.
I was up all night pulling my hair fighting to create the pieces the client never saw, pieces that were derivative of what they were “certain they wanted.”:)
Twice the lead said that we far exceeded his expectations. Hitting a home run at the start, is a good way to begin a relationship.
Now the unchosen designs which are already built out, will be added to the design pool. They can applied to another client down the road if/when the look/structure is appropriate.So, not wasted time
They were sure happy campers, and that my friends, is NEVER a bad thing. It’s bank. Especially if they, like these guys, own a slew of companies, and if the lead is sold to us as “difficult.”
Also, when we got out of the meeting, they immediately texted a big thank you to our team lead thanking up for our work. Gotta love that.
Nice way to end the week. I’m drinking wine to celebrate and will likely be asleep in, 15 minutes…. zzzzzzzzz
Committee of Organ Donation in Lebanon
© DDB Dubai
To design the corporate identity for an organ donation initiative. Since it was our only tool of communication, the design had to instantly convey the message of organ donation. Whatever we designed had to strike an emotional chord and subtly prompt people to open up to the idea.
When you pledge an organ, you gift someone a new life. We simply brought this insight to life through our design.

Dana doesn’t use stencils or a projector to aid her drawings, she maintains an almost-perfect notion that this is a one of a kind, fleeting moment in the life of a word, which will probably be soon erased (how poetic!). She is also a part of Louise Fili Ltd., the amazingly prolific lettering studio, where she helps to create some of the world’s most lovely type work.

Weedrobes Camellia Countessa
Made with fruits, weeds, flowers, and leaves, ‘Weedrobes’ is the delightful series of meticulously detailed, perishable gowns, coats, and suits by Canadian environmental artist Nicole Dextras. Striking a careful balance between style and commentary, the message behind Weedrobes is aimed squarely at the not-always-so-sustainable practices of the fashion industry, while also redefining the perceived immortality of haute couture.
Dextras’ garments begin life as plants harvested from a variety of places, ranging from areas affected by invasive species to specimens from Dextras’ own garden.
After constructing her pieces, Dextras photographs each Weedrobe with a model, and they are sent out to “engage the public” by interacting with passerby. Afterwards, each garment is left to be ‘reclaimed’ and to decompose naturally.
