Full 12: The story of my blog header
And yes, December has come and its time for me to showcase the 12 blog header image I used. Why? because there is a little story behind it, just continue on and see my designs that I’ve made this year…
That time, I was still with my old tagline “This is my story”. Agito was derived from Kamen Rider Agito, in which the word in Latin, meaning: to put in motion, move, rouse. In Kamen Rider Agito terms, it means Evolution . After all that I have been through last year, I want to step forward and continue to evolve from just someone into a blogger; not just a typical blogger but a blogger with a firm identity that know what he write about.
This year, Valentine’s Day and Chinese new year falls on the same day, February 14. This pink-ish header is a mix of Chinese-tic looks (the font and the tiger in the background) and Love (the lovey dovey font and the couple). The original image of the lovers was a bit NSFW so I have to cut the unwanted stuff before finalizing the design.
I started a new blog tagline called “More than personal”. I made this header to reminisce the old days that I remembered. All the effects are thanks to Photoscape which I discovered that time, the app helped me a lot in my blogging work so far. 🙂
The most precious artwork that I have ever done, Freya was featured as the month of April header image. And again, thanks to Photoscape for the awesome effect.
Basically, the background image was the picture of Kota Marudu’s Pekan Baru skies. Since I have changed my job from a programmer to a mere telco promoter starting from the middle of April. I’m basically promoting stuffs every single day under the hot sun. It was pretty great experience though, I get to know the people and meet some new friends and uh, some irate customers by the way.
Not that I enjoyed having some beer every single day, its just a saying from my friend that got stuck in my head. :P. Still in Kota Marudu, promoting promoting promoting.
Hah!, even though World Cup was halfway done when I updated blog header for July; it still fits perfectly to the happenings at that time. Diego Maradona’s Hand Of God is still the awesome (or maybe even a bit funny) goal in the history of football/soccer. I don’t know why didn’t feature Paul the Octopus instead…
This is the last month working in Kota Marudu. Also unfortunately, my contract was not extended, so bye bye~
Oh look, the same recycled picture! LOL. ok I admit I used this picture too much orz. It basically represent my jobless days, having nothing, relationship problems, no enough money… what a month it was but then comes a job opportunity at almost the end of the month, thanks to Twitter!
From Nothingness comes Life, started to work in BorneoColours, learned so much things from Daniel Doughty the big man behind BorneoColours. He gave me great advice for me to improve my life and made me look at my work in a better and different angle.
Specially made to in conjunction with B2.0 Borneo Bloggers + New Media Dialogue. Awesome font too. 😀
Blog header for November went through so many changes, I thought I will enjoy my birthday month. Sadly, my heart was torn apart from my ex decisions… I felt devastated.
And the last header image for December 2010 ~ Full 12. What it is all about? 30 Day Blog Challenge of course!
