I’ve been hearing about this project from my friend Phina, since couple months ago. She asked me what sorta name would be cool for a laptop bag brand. I gave her some names, but I forgot what it was. And that was it.

Two weeks ago she came to Perth to visit her sister. And couple days ago she was stressing out about some deadlines and I offered to help. She told me she needs to draw some bags in vector format. I’m like ok. When I came she showed me the logo. Apparently it was the same laptop bag project that she told me earlier. She showed me the logo, giggling and telling me it was some rush work so she couldn’t be bothered to do more. I was a bit annoyed looking at the logo and then I just offered to do it, and voila. I did it in half an hour. The concept was simple, clean and a bit edgy.

What do you think?

Prayer_01

With the prayer before sleep, I was thinking of two ideas. The first one is, making a bed side lamp with the prayer written in a calligraphy on it. So when you wanna go to bed, and decided to turn the light off, you’ll see the prayer on it and (hopefully) you remember to pray.

The second idea is making a spinning lamp that projecting the prayer onto the wall. But this one is a bit hard. Just the technical issues itself kinda put me off of the idea.

That’s why today I decided to go with the first idea. I googled the prayer, put it into Illustrator, and made the vector version. It was too blocky so I made put the rounded-edges trick on it. It looks ok. Sent it to couple of friends to see if they can still read it, and they said its all good.

Here it is,

Tomorrow I’m gonna try to transfer it to the bed side lamp that I got (made from fabric) and try to cut the pattern. Alright, wish me luck boys and girls.

I Say A Little Prayer For You

I had this idea last year. For the Islamic exhibition that supposed to happen. But oh well. I love the idea so much that I wanna do it no matter what. Thanks to Phina, she managed to make me explore and develop all the concept for it.

I wanna do a whole series of my favorite prayers. When I was a kid this is probably one of my earliest moment with my mom. Every night she would say all the short prayers before I go to sleep. She would recite it slowly, and I will repeat it after her. And now it becomes a habit, before I go to bed I gotta say these prayers.

– Prayer before sleep
– Prayer for my parents
– Prayer for the life and afterlife
– Al-Ikhlas 3 times (they say Allah will give you two angels to guard you while you sleep).

On top of that I want to put the other prayers as well, such as:
– Prayer before meals
– Prayer before you travel

I already wrote what I want to do exactly with each prayers. So in order to make my self more committed and discipline to this project. I will try to do one step everyday and post it here. Ouw yea! Bring it ON!!!

Oh btw, I’m gonna call it, I Say A Little Prayer For You 🙂
