The answer to all the above 3 questions is NO. There’s no Diwali or Christmas or birthday of anyone special in my circles. You would next ask, “Then why the hell are you wishing us for these occasions?” . Well, I would say that’s because there’s one common thing in between these 3 occasions & this particular one & that’s you getting a present.
Yes, you read it right. I’m giving away a free PSD of the Designer Resume I made. I’m a Web & Graphics Designer & I wanted my resume to reflect it. Hence, I thought of making this resume which may stand out from the crowd & may fetch me a job or some sort of commission work in Designing.
I personally use many resources available on the internet. Internet has always been very kind to me. In fact, to all of us, provided we googled it right :P So, I thought of returning something to the internet. And here it is, I’m giving away a free PSD file of the Designer Resume which required a lot of thinking & Photoshop efforts from me.
DG: Hey Joshua, how are you doing? Tell us something about you. PRC: Hi, Darshan. I’m doing well! Thank you for contacting me and providing this opportunity.
My name is Joshua Pomeroy and I live in Howell, Michigan with my wonderful family and two dogs. My wife and I share many creative interests and passions. Together, we started Pomme Roi Creative LLC in November, 2014. We do graphic design and visual art with a focus on uniquely artistic design and illustration.
DG: For how long have you been making illustrations? PRC: I have been drawing and sketching as long as I can remember. I remember watching my mom draw and I would try my best to draw exactly what she did on my little tablet. My older brother was also a big influence – always drawing castles and ships from pictures in books we got from the library. I was always fascinated with the way a few lines of pencil lead on the paper would somehow turn into something recognizable and even look alive. It was like magic!
DG: Tell us about the thought process that goes behind making those masterpieces? PRC: It’s pretty simple really. I have a tidy folder structure in my Google Drive to help me stay organized and more efficient. Google has great search functions in Drive, but I like to create folders and know where things are as much as possible.
I start with a reference photo. It doesn’t even have to be that great of quality. Most of the portraits I’ve done so far have been from images from Facebook profile pictures. I usually copy the image, create a new Google Drawings document in another tab, set the page size to 10in x 10in, (I like to work with a square for the portraits) and paste it. From there, I might crop the image to focus on just the area of the subject I want. Then, it’s straight to the PolyLine Tool.

Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to be released soon & I’m so damn excited about it. I’ve always been a huge fan of Marvel movies. It’s freaky awesome how the Writers & Directors of Marvel Cinematic Universe connect all these super awesome superhero movies together.
Marvel has been sharing some super cool posters of individual characters & the movie as a whole. I’m totally in love with those posters. Being a huge fan & an artist, I’ve always wanted to contribute to Marvel in some or the other way. Looking at the internet these days, I see lots of love being showered on Minimal Designs. This struck my mind & I fancied of making a Minimal Poster for Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Here you go,
Neither I work for Marvel nor I had received any request from their side for making this poster. I love Marvel & this is my way of loving it.
Let me know your thoughts on this design, I’m more than happy to improve. And yes, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is releasing on 24th April, 2015 in India. Aren’t you people excited about it?
DG: Hey Omkar, how are you doing? Tell us something about you?
TCE: Hi Darshan, I’m doing good. About me – I am a Computer Engineering student, I have a YouTube channel called The Curious Engineer with around 28k subscribers & I work as an Illustrator with MinuteEarth. I basically make science videos with the help of my Illustrations.
DG: What was going in your mind when you thought of creating The Curious Engineer? TCE: I actually started it as a channel called Codefap, which was a place for Programming Tutorials & Tech Reviews. But then I stumbled upon amazing science channels like Vsauce, Veritasium, MinutePhysics, SmarterEveryDay, etc. These channels inspired me to make edu-taining science videos.
DG: How did the Exceptional Journey start? TCE: When I decided to make videos using Illustrations, I was trying to make something like MinutePhysics. I had no idea where to begin. I purchased a pen-tablet and watched tutorials on YouTube to learn tips and tricks for making this happen. And then I made my first video – “Bill Gates vs Steve Jobs”.
Watched a trailer of Avengers: Age of Ultron on the official Facebook page of Marvel. Damn, this video is awesome! I need this in my phone, let’s download it. Wait, where’s the download option? Facebook, you cheat, Y U No provide an option to download a video like your provide for an image?
After getting caught in this kind of situation, you’ll curse Facebook, look for a trick on the internet to download the f**king video & will be irritated when internet suggests you to follow a tedious procedure.
Say no more to that irritating & time consuming procedure. Follow these few ultra simple steps & enjoy your video.
