ONE MUST NOT REVEAL HIS SECRET SKILLS: Expo Stand Design – Oasis

One doesn’t just simply let his/her employer know all his/her skills and capabilities. One has to have his secret weapon to be able to outplay the competition. Specially when you are a multi-talented graphic designer (ehem!). It is actually normal for some graphic designer to possess multiple design skills apart from their specialization and sometimes they excel more with their extra curricular activities like fine arts, photography, fashion, interior design, product, packaging, animation, web, 3d, architecture, audio and a lot more to mention. They can be just anything they want because they are freaking shapeshifting artist. So why you should not tell them all that you can do?

Tirelessly wating for you.

Rainy days in desert.

Today is Tuesday, 5th day here in Dubai, 3rd day at work as it’s has started last Sunday. 2nd time I witnesses a rare downpour of rain in the civilized desert. 8am on our way for work riding a service van we headed a highway of flood and foggy horizon providing the scene of Burj Kalifa like an ethereal dream. Dubai has never experienced such pour of rain that causes flood and thick fog resulting traffic jam though the volume of rain is very little compare to an average monsoon rain in my hometown Philippines. Pause… Right inside our vehicle, the rain is getting heavier and the fog is getting thicker making the highway very dangerous for all. Pause… … almost zero visibility. Pause… … … Finally we all safe aboard.
