I have always been a busy bee (you can tell from the lack of updates in this blog), but the last 2 weeks was the busiest. At the last minute I was assigned to form a creative team of students for a project. This is for a local competition organized by Mega Cebu. The competition’s brief is to make an AVP that showcases Cebu at its finest. There are 6 categories and we have to make a video for each. Originally, the school was only assigned to do only 2 categories due to time constraints. But it didn’t make any sense to me and to the whole team to make only 2 videos. In my Art Direction class, I have always demanded CONSISTENCY. To me, it is one of the most important things in design. So we decided to make all 6 videos. We just had to!
I am very very proud to say that we pulled it off. In a matter of 2 weeks, we were able to organize everything that needs to be done. I sure hope they didn’t think I was monstrous, giving these kids creative direction and guidance, haha! (but they told me i wasn’t though) It was a tough 2weeks for all of us, the students having to shoot photo and video, illustrate and animate 2D and 3D motion graphics. This bunch is the Dream Team of the University of San Carlos – Fine Arts department, others would say. And truly, they are. They were very calm under pressure, making fun of each other and theirs me, panicking most of the time like any other mother would hahaha! Kudos to the Fine Arts Team from USC! You nailed everything down to the tiniest details! GREAT JOB, Team! Mother hen is super proud of you.
Check out the videos below but first please like the videos over here, so you can also help us win the Viewer’s Choice Award. We plan to win this all the way! To anyone reading this, and if you did what I just told you, many thanks!
Any kid would remember their mom’s kitchen smelling sweet and yummy. I grew up with that. My mom has this superwoman baking skills and me and my siblings were always in the kitchen ready to lick off the remaining icing on the whisks. Now that we’re grown up, most of my siblings didn’t get my mom’s superpowers. Yes, we cook & bake but we don’t really bake the sweet stuff.
Fortunately, my brother married a woman who loves to bake. And she’s currently starting a business called Little Cakes. Such an adorable name! And I am now currently helping her out with her branding one step at a time. It is still in the planning stage so we’re taking it one step at a time. For a start I designed the logo. The keywords that I got from her were: fun, adorable, yummy and luscious.
I wanted to play around with the “fun & adorable” part since it just fits with the brand name. The top 2 of my sketches:
Improved the second one. And this is what I came up with. The final logo. It was approved on the spot
And here’s Little Cakes on some sugar cookies.
We’re still currently working on the packaging. More to come soon!

and there’s my betta fish, i call him HE-MAN hahaha! i need to work on his home a bit.
i just got him 2 days ago, thats why he’s still in a big bottle. but he likes it though.

It took me only an hour to finish this random doodle last night on a legal sized bondpaper. I really didn’t know what I was going for. All I thought was I just had to keep myself busy on this paper. So this came out. I printed the word “Doodle” on a bondpaper and just started filling up those spaces. Easy, huh? But it made my fingers ache when I was done. It was worth it though. Im a satisfied doodler.
This is the original sketch. Scanned.
Enhanced it on PS. I’m not sure if I like it.
So I changed it to this. And I wasn’t sure either. So whatever! *pffft!
Kevs. I can’t make up my mind. Which one do you like? Or don’t like? )
