Designing Frenzy

The title itself is self explanatory. I went on a designing frenzy for two days, which resulted in me forgetting to update all of my blogs when I really should. I’m trying to get my online store project up as soon as I can. It’s not much, actually. Just a small store offering print-on-demand and high quality silkscreen-printed t-shirts, custom-design service, mugs, caps and other small stuff. There are many similar store like these, but almost 95% of them are US-based or international-based. I thought it would be more convenient to set up a Malaysian-based store for us Malaysians. I hope to be able to launch the shop before the term starts.

Which reminds me… I have to add extra $2 to my monthly hosting bill for a dedicated IP. Else, I won’t be able to properly install my SSL certificate. The Visa credit/debit card payment gateway via Siteheart is settled and the payment gateway is secure (encrypted, 128 bit). I just thought it would be nicer for the whole store to run in secure https mode. Go me! Work harder!

I made a few t-shirt designs yesterday, and my personal favourite is this:

Malaysian Blogger Shirt (W) Malaysian Blogger Shirt (B)

Wait, I love these too…

Say What Shirt (B) Blogging is Love

Click on those pictures to get a better view of them. I really want to get them printed and wear them around!

I also played around a bit with Stylish Geeks. You can go play around with the ‘Skin Me!‘ module. I added a new theme to the site to those who are fond of cheerful colours.

SG - Technicolor

Okay. I think I better go and work on my store project… And finish uploading Junjou Romantica scans to Junjou.info. Uploaded Volume 5 – 9. I need to upload Volume 1 – 4.

      Or maybe I’m just looking for trouble by drowning myself in all these 😛 Yep, bloggers gathering, my thought exactly. I’d love to walk around with that shirt. It has another version, ‘Malaysian Geek’ 😉

      Well, I am aware of netbuilder.com.my but I’m not talking about setting up a mall with lots of products. It’s just a small part time business, self-managed (probably with other designers later) offering unique merchandise 🙂 After all, 2008 has been announced as ‘The Year of Small Business’.
