HELLO- (Update)

Hello.

It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

There is a lot I could say about my absence; think I’ll spare the details (for now). To make a really long story short, a few obstacles have appeared and I currently need to brush them out of the way before I can resume, properly. For starters, my workstation is almost dead; in fact the laptop I use to produce music is currently dying. The monitor tends to flicker every now and then, so much to say that now it’s currently on the verge of completely whitening out- WHICH MEANS that I would need to send it off for repairs; which I am willing to do, but it’s quite costly. Either that, or I actually try and transport all of my saved files from one station to another. God knows how much unfinished/WIP projects I have on my laptop, I’m really not sure how long the transfer would take- probably long enough’til the screen whitens out during transfer. So that’s one issue.

Second issue is that I am currently out of employment; how it happened is probably one the most unprofessional turn of events I have experienced up to date. To make humour of the situation; as well as to give a better illustration of an example of how it happened.

Imagine your partner telling you they need time to think. They keep you waiting in suspense, not knowing what will happen, 4 weeks before they go on holiday, they send you a text message telling you it isn’t going to work out. Via text message.

Excuse the language sandwich, but it’s pretty fucked up, right?

Anyway, life moves on and so will I. For the meantime, I won’t be posting anything ‘new’ – but I will try my best to break the mould. It’s been a while since I’ve actually produced anything; it’s quite worrying, that is not the ‘Isaac’ way. Before this year ends, I’ll be sure to produce something (or a handful of things)-

Apologies in advance if I am unable to. (Issue 3 and 4 are a little too personal)- I don’t fancy the idea of using this platform as a means to rant, I’ll keep myself contained. I’m here to create and share art.

Designing with PowerPoint [Update]

Hey-yo!

I’ve recently just updated the ‘TUTORIAL’ page on my website. The page consist of this programme that I generated years ago and have recently remade from scratch. I’ve created video tutorials for all, and I’ve also managed to generate a PDF version for those who of course…much prefer an unanimated version, as the video format is a bit of a stretch on duration. (Slow and steady wins the race, apparently… so you know – do as you feel fit)

UNIVERSE 7 (to edit)

This project will be hosted here

https://iagyemandesigns.wordpress.com/customize/

As you may have noticed I’m currently working on a project of my own; something small to keep the engine running and the creative mind thinking. The Project is called 「UNIVERSE 7」– U7 will contain a set of 7 images, but as of now I will upload 3 images out of the 7. The remaining 4 images are currently under design process. However, as there will be 7 in total, there will be a duplication of each source. 7 will be watermarked, and the other set of 7 will be untouched; this decision may change. That being said, this is for those who much prefer to obtain an image without any visual interferences – in addition to that, the watermarks alone are an indication of the project and it’s maker (origin), but I do understand watermarks can be a bit of a drag; I’m quite picky myself, actually.


universe-7-logo-02

Not an overkill, nothing too fancy; something subtle and sophisticated. As I produce work of my own, I often contemplate on the idea of being a perfectionist, and how that alone can stagger my ability. So, I’ve set a side my pride of a perfectionist and I’ll accept what I’ve placed in front of me, knowing in the future to come I’ll progress even further.

So, these are 4 of the 7 sources I’m willing to share to you today.

Future Project [DEMO]

EXPERIMENTAL WALLPAPER (Created by Isaac Agyeman)

This is/was primarily a test wallpaper that I had created a while back; made a few experimentation exports to see how wallpapers of a specific design would look on a specific dimension (it was for an Exhibition of which I also had my work presented in) – I really did like the idea and concept of what I was creating, so I saved this experimental test piece for the future (so I could advance with my idea).

I have now decided to use and merge my experimental piece with these mock-ups as a tests of what’s to come in the near future.

(I did in fact create the wallpaper)

Update 2

tutorial-icon

Yo – second update for today. In my previous posts, I mentioned that I’m currently working on a project that I had thought of many years ago and now I’m of course bringing it to light. I’m glad to say that the project that I was referring to is somewhat ‘live’ and will be held on this website in this link here; titled ‘TUTORIALS’ > https://iagyemandesigns.wordpress.com/tutorials/ < my next update related post maybe my last post for the page; unless if I begin to apply more sources. So go ahead and check it out. I’ve created a schemata that is friendly to all types of people, there will be downloadable content for others to use as they see fit.

Update.

In my previous post, I mentioned that I’ve been planning as well as thinking about a project that I’ve generated for a couple of years. I mentioned that I have/I will be producing something which is geared towards everyone, not just creatives. So I’m happy to say that I can provide a preview of some sort, but the project alone is not live. Not just yet.

A preview of what’s to come.

This so called ‘Project’ will be based here -> https://iagyemandesigns.wordpress.com/coolstuff/ <  -a page here on my site named “COOL STUFF” (To be honest, I’m not even sure if that’s going to be the official name of the page; but it will most definitely contain different theme in comparison to the rest (or at least majority) of my site.

This page will contain elements of which you as well as passers-by will be able to download and use for your (their) benefit as well as decoration, so look out for my posts.


Capcom vs. SNK 2 OST The Lord God (Theme of God Rugal) Extended

Coming soon.

In the midst of creating something for creators.

I’ve been planning; working as well as thinking about a specific project for a couple of years, now. I’m not going to spoil too much, but it’s something geared towards everyone. I do hope that this will benefit anyone and/or everyone who actually applies themselves to what I’ll be exposing soon. This is just a mere preview. Photoshop brushes.

(P.S: I listen to Video Game Soundtracks whilst I work, so I will actually provide links to what I’ve been listening to at the time of me producing work)

Last Year of University

 

https://iagyemandesigns.wordpress.com/third/

I’ll provide a routine post to inform you readers about work that I have produced that are attached to specific pages. I had recently graduated (well, it’s been a while, actually) – and since then, I’ve been at home resting and planning my future. For those who are interested in viewing my work that I have recently produced, click the link. (Recently meaning: work that I have produced in my last year of University, but do make sure to browse other pages too, as they will contain work that I produced at University.)
