I got these prior to my EU travel arrangements as I did not want to lug around 3-4 of my Sennheisser headphones. One of the best buys I did this last month. Very sturdy, tangle free and very solid presence of bass.
This memoir is divided into 3 main parts -
How to pack/What to pack?
How to go about and where to go?
What to expect?

How to pack if you like travelling is a great question especially for us travellers. I think of it as a military exercise in a civil environment and also as something like art, always striving for that perfect composition. Though there are as many bags styles and designs you could wag a tail at, the fundamentals are quite the same. Like a good pair of pants, it has to have 2 hoses to put your legs into, everything else is an afterthought. I myself have travelled using 3 flight cases, 2 backpacks, electronic studio equipment, food, and Tote bags in the past. Booking cabs just to carry luggage was something I was admittedly and stupidly proud about. It had more to do with my relatively posh upbringing, lots of logistical support and bad habits. Now I see through all that in retrospect, I realize how much I could have saved in terms of time and money if I only carried lighter.
This came out just a few days back from Refuse Trip Records in Beatport. Awesome stuff! 19 tracks of delight all killer no filler.
Many thnx to Florin from my label Mojear, for all his support and thanks to Catharsis for this awesome compilation and Beatport for their awesome platform
This one was for some weird guys in Delhi last year for one their their company courses that was in the design pipeline. I did this in their office room with them in less than 20 minutes. Surprisingly they were happy with it, eh! Mainly playing with fonts sizes and colors, along with layering and a gold foil look created using blend modes and layer settings. Add a few paths and shapes and voila!
This is from the album drafts bin from many of the recycled ones, but I like the overall look. This was done with another set of graphics assets for an android anti-virus company I was working for in Gurgaon. I used the dalvik code as the backdrop and used one of my shoot eye pics and started layering on that. Did no use this one though it looked good enough for me.
I was working with some rather empty headed guys in Pune, India and they asked me to do a logo for their startup company – WelServe. I am not at all excited to be with them and in Pune in the first place. However, I did this with them in the same meeting room in about 3 hours at night towards midnight. It was my first time and I they liked it
This was done in Photoshop CS5, with mostly a contrast based design using black and white at first. Keeping the “S” enlarged gives more tension in the otherwise rather strict and simple text.
The font is the ubiquitous Trajan-Regular, with a slight gradient for the S using shades of grey. The black box adds a bit of interest and variation to just the text.
Light green shades go well with grey and black. So the final version looked good enough in green. A bit of level adjustments improved the contrast definition along with a dash of smart sharpen filter at about 50% to give the accentuation of the shades in the “S”.
The aftermath was the brainstorming session for a fitting timeline that resulted in a lot of funny taglines and slogan drafts for the logo. I could get sued putting them here :0
