Despite Renz having personal matters to attend to. He did not make it to the meeting at all. The meeting went really really well though. Me and Kal approached Tita Anne with a sheet of the lastest design options I've created and she picked one that she felt satisfied with and after a few tweaks on the logo. I created the letterhead with Kal and Tita advising me on how they want it. Thus, I came up with a simple yet elegant piece of stationery that I found attractive enough to write on after we printed out a mock up and with that we got the logo and letterhead finished and out of the way. I'm very happy about that.
The Color Palette, Logo and letterhead are all with the higher powers waiting for their signature.
Now, I can move on to poster & ticket designs which I may add will be fun cause it involves photoshop work! horrah!
Points to get through:
- Request permission to use clock stock for tickets
- Photoshop Clock to look old and dusty
- Get sponsor logos for tickets
- Speak to Kal for further Ticket and Poster Content as well as his creative input on the tickets.
- Vectorize Dancer artwork
- Get artwork for second poster background
- Vectorize that as well
- Pick typeface for poster
Of course, I'll have the deadlines posted up here so anyone can kick my ass if I dont reach the deadlines in time.
Thank you Tita & Kal for helping progress in the designs I have and for taking the time of day to meet with me. We make a great team!
All the best from your Junior Designer,

Sorry I couldn't make it today guys, I had some family conflicts.
I hope your feet hurt and your backs are wrenching from intensity, or I'll make you all go back and re-rehearse. (Oh how mean Renz xD ).
Anyways let me start with some updates from the talents:
- Mariel - Had to attend a meeting at her Church today, so she couldn't make it. She reached me late. That's why earlier I didn't really have a reason to give you guys for her absence.
- Khalid (from PSB) - I've spoken to him and he says his schedule is hectic. He'll probably be free after three weeks. I wonder how Habeel is going to react to this one.
- Victoria's - Well seems like nobody will be heading off to Victoria's tomorrow since the girls seem to be off for a week. So rehearsals there are paused, anyways in my opinion the guys need to do most of the catching up since plenty of sessions were missed.
Tomorrow we'll be setting up agendas to have whole weeks planned out. Yes you read correctly: "whole weeks". It won't hurt to reiterrate, that we have a limited period of time left till the show. So work, work, work. I don't want to repeat what Kal says all the time haha. So we'll probably coordinate with you and your scheds so that we can find reasonable compromises.
So tomorrow look forward to your new schedules peeps and keep visting here to keep updated.
P.S. I heard there was someone new in today, I wonder if we can look forward to working with you, whoever you are xD.
Work thats supposed to be done in less than a week has been on going for almost a month now.
The logo has been going well. I've been creating as much options as possible and they've evolved into a very suttle and corporate brandmark and with it came a fifth element. I have reviewed my lastest versions with Kal and it looks like I'm going in the right direction as of now. Though my time has been limited since I spend 10 hours a weekday in an branding firm and since its the time of the year where event launches seem to crowd our schedules and deadlines are closing in all resulted in one thing 'overtime' and lots of it. But I don't mind it at all. I'm a workacholic!
Despite my hectic schedule. I've come up with designs that I hope the team will like.
Refer to Renz to see the latest options and the previous ones too.
Any feedback of any kind is entirely welcome.
Hopefully, we'll have the logo and fifth element signed off soon.
Wish me luck!
- Introduction music has been mixed and a rountine should swiftly follow.
- Caveman routine is almost penned and completed, and song work is on its way.
- Routines for the ritual will be choreographed by Hamood and I, with gracious input of Habeel of course. Egpytian rountine will be unfortunately my routine, and Greek will go to Renz.
- Aqquired special help from the Indian Ladies Association. A great boost for us, and less stress for us. Welcome them as you'd welcome any new dancers.
- Welcome our new additional dancers, Nico and Clarice (hopefully spellings are right). We shall work you down to the ground.
Anyways, I'd stress the point that we ARE nearing the end of February so the time we have is severely being eaten up as you all read this. So expect alot of constant practices and broken feet during the next month. We are aiming for April, so we need the work done.
All in all, it has been going well, and we'll just have to see how this ends. So keep up the work, chins up, feet light, and get dancing the ZCCB way.
