What’s Going On?

Leave a comment

As you may have noticed, DZine-Studios is a bit of a mess right now. Well actually, it’s not DZine-Studios anymore. That’s the first of several changes happening to this blog. The blog’s just called Dan, because it’s my personal blog, not a corporate blog, nor is it actually about a design studio, as the punny domain name might imply. Design’s also not really the main focus of this blog, nor has it ever really been. More after the jump.

Introducing AJDA’s New Website

Leave a comment

A week or two ago, my band’s guitarist Steve contacted me and said he was making stickers for our band, As Judgement Day Approaches, and he asked what link to put below or logo, so that people could find us. I immediately thought of just putting our Facebook link, but then we both agreed that we needed something a bit more professional. And that’s how “asjudgementdayapproaches.com”:http://asjudgementdayapproaches.com came to exist. I’m pretty damn proud of how it came out, so check it out.

A Glimpse Into a Sort-of Secret Project

It’s not for a client, it’s for my band. I can’t reveal too many details about it yet, because the grand opening for it is this Sunday. What I do want to show is a little sneak preview of it, much like what people do on dribbble (“my dribbble account “:http://dribbble.com/danielzabolotny if anybody wants to invite me, hint hint).

It’s a list of band members in my band, with some custom icons I made. I figured, instead of just writing [nickname] – [name] – [instrument], I’d use an icon to indicate the instrument. I based it off the “round social icon set”:http://lifetreecreative.com/icons/, except using my own vector shapes for the instruments. Working at such a small size and still maintaining clarity was quite tricky, especially with the drumset. However, I’m pretty happy with how this came out.

Introducing My Desire Z

No, not really. I just rooted my G2 and put the Desire Z ROM onto it. Took a couple hours to do it all. I’m not writing a full guide on how to do it, that’s been done countless times. I will, however link to the guides I used, in case anybody wishes to make their G2 pretty.

T-Mobile G2 Review

6 Comments

About a week ago, I got a new T-Mobile G2 phone. After writing about “my initial thoughts”:http://dzine-studios.com/2011/03/30/obtained-a-g2/ on it, I’ll be writing my full review of it today. As of now, I’ve had the phone for a bit over a week, which I believe is long enough to really get a feel for things like build quality and battery life. See the rest of the review after the jump.

Obtained A G2

1 Comment

Today I was finally able to get a T-Mobile G2, and I must say, it has been worth every penny so far. I haven’t had it long enough to write a review on it, so this post will be more about my initial thoughts on the G2. Since my previous smartphone was an iPhone 4, that’s what I’ll often be comparing the G2 to. Does it measure up? Let’s find out…
