The Plastique banner ad templates contains 30 stunning banner ad templates that comes in 6 standard banner ad sizes and 5 vibrant color schemes to choose from! And as a bonus, I’ve added +30 ANIMATED versions of the banner ad templates!!! Yes! You’ve read it right! ANIMATED !

As I always say, banner ads should say it all! Because it’s supposed to make a good first impression to potential clients/customers. It should NOT ONLY look good and professional, but it should also highlight all of the essential information about your website or product. But there’s only so little space you can put all the essential information to. The solution? ANIMATED BANNERS !
The Plastique banner ad template set is not only an eye candy, it’s easy to customize and best of all, it includes pre-animated PSDs, so you can just quickly modify it and export it as an animated GIF in just a few minutes!

The New Draftbeer Initiative

The new Draftbeer Initiative!

A few months ago, I created a blog account through WordPress.com to post some of my work as well as to advertise the stuff that I sell over at GraphicRiver. Occasionally I would post some articles that may or may not be related to my line of work. I used one of the free themes that are available, and since it was just a free WordPress account, there wasn’t much to customize on the theme that I used. The layout was somewhat cluttered, and the content was disorganized. But mediocre as it seemed, it served well it’s purpose. Well, perhaps more! Since a few weeks after it was launched, I got messages from potential clients. Some of them knew about the site because of GraphicRiver, some of them just came across it through google or WordPress.com. I’ve never really given freelancing a thought, but since then, a door of opportunity opened for me. Because of that, I’ve realized the value of having a website. And so, now I felt like it’s about time that I should improve my website a little bit. Hence the website redesign!

What’s New?

New Look

Of course, the first thing you might noticed that changed around here (if you’ve visited my website before) is the new look. I wanted the focus to be shifted over to content and made the design more simple and yet still has a touch of elegance.

More Organized

I might decide to post more content in the coming days and that this website might become something more than just my portfolio website, so I’ve moved things a bit to make it less cluttered and more organized.

I’ve given the Portfolio section a bit of a structure, categorizing stuff so that they’ll be easier to find, and visitors like you would know where to go.

A more comprehensive information can be found in the About section where you could learn more about what I do and what I could do for you (with the skill set outlined in that section), as well as my work philosophy.

I’ve also put up a FAQ section to answer some of the most important questions in a potential client’s mind about hiring me as a designer. Questions relating to pricing, services I offer, timeframe, etc. For everything else, you can go to the Contact section where I have posted some information on how you could reach me.

2 Hot new items now on sale at GraphicRiver!

Finally after almost a week of waiting, two of my items got approved and now currently on sale at GR! The first one is the assorted all-purpose banner ad templates. I created a banner ad template set to hopefully add to GR’s plethora of brilliantly designed banner ad templates. But I wanted to create variety that goes beyond color theme variations. So I limited myself to two color themes, yellow and gray but I varied added more size variations as well as variations in layout and style. I also made it a point not to use dummy text on any of the sample banner ads because I wanted potential buyers to not only buy the templates for their designs but for the idea i also put into them. Selling banner ad templates should not only mean selling quality graphics, but also mean selling ideas! If you want to know more about this item, just click the image below.

The other item recently uploaded on GR is the Glossy & Crisp premium web 2.0 download buttons. Now creating this set was really tricky since there are also a plethora of buttons in GR and some of the designs or styles are repetitive. It’s a real challenge coming up with something that will stand out from the crowd while also not deviating from the trend. So I came up with something glossy and vibrant but has really crisp and uncluttered design elements. Again, if you want to know more about this item, just click the image below.

Glossy 3D Text Pack Volume 2

I’ve recently uploaded my 2nd set of glossy 3d text to GraphicRiver. I used the BAUHAUS font for this one. As with the first volume, it includes 8 sets of letters A-Z, a-z and numbers 0-9 rendered from 8 camera angles. It includes PNGs and customizable PSDs. Images were rendered from the same camera angles as with the 1st volume.

Click here to see details...

Here’s a sample artwork that I came up with using this set of 3d text.

You might be wondering what’s inside this package. So, here’s a preview.

PNGs

PNGs

As I have mentioned this package includes PNGs and PSDs. There are 4 PNG images for each letter. 2 PNG images for the capital letter A, that would be for both the 3D image and the 2D letter face. And another 2 PNG images for the lower caps letter a (3d and 2d). I have rendered both the 3d letter and the 2d letter face so that you can both import them into photoshop and create individual designs for both the letter face and the 3d block.

For your convenience I have included PSDs which already contain both the 3d block and the letter face and additional layers that you could readily customize. Here’s a sneak peek of the A.psd document included in this package.

A.psd document

A.psd document

As shown on the screenshot, we have the letter’s 3d block (layer 1) and the letter face (layer 2) included in the A.psd file. Layer 4 is the color layer that i’ve added to give the 3d block color. You can modify this by adding a layer style to it and add fancy styles, effects or elaborate patterns or you could adjust the hue/saturation setting to change its color.

I’ll be uploading new sets in the coming days.
