I was having a browse for some inspiration for some logo’s and designs I could get to work on and I came across this website. I’m no where near to this skill level of graphic design but I really really hope one day I will be.

Just in case you were wondering…

My name is Yanko Tsvetkov and I’m a freelance graphic designer and a visual artist. I am known as alphadesigner, a pseudonym that usually makes people think what I do is really important. That’s why I chose it.

I used to watch Stargate a lot when I was younger, and even last year I gave watching all the seasons a go with my house mates. I saw the first of season 1, Stargate Universe. Not only did I not like it, but there was a guy in the first episode who I thought looked familiar. turned out it was General O’Neill. Someone got a bit chubby. Shame the Azgard didnt have anything to help out.

I forgot.

There is a very good reason as to why I havent been posting as much… I havent through of a good excuse yet so I think I’ll just tell you the truth.

1) I’ve been balls deep (sorry for the expression) in graphic design work. This time 2 months ago I did no freelance work. I have no qualifications in graphic design and had no one who was interested in my work. Now, it’s a different story. I get an email/phone call every day for paid work in graphic design and I’m slowly building an awesome portfolio.

2) I bought Assassins Creed Brotherhood for the PS3 and have been owning. Seriously, I’ve got a gold on each of the Virtual Training sections.

3) University. Oh yes, education. That one is always consuming around 60% of my time and I’ve got a pitch to do next week for Channel M.

4) I’ve been playing too much Pokemon on my DS.

Anyhow. I’ve been feeling sorry for myself because I’ve not posted on here so I cheered myself up by changing my picture and changing the header at the top of the blog. Let me know what you think.

Lack In Posts

January 14, 2012

Sorry for my lack in posts. Been very busy with designing, pitching and playing my 3DS. Anyway, I’m on here now, going to give my page a quick vamp up and get some form of posts ready

Tampax: The New Vodka Shot

January 5, 2012

Brace yourself for horror, because this is going to make your vagina hurt by just thinking about it.
There is a new trend that is literally gushing over the nation’s youth (Not sure if the pun was intended): The vodka tampon. I really thought that it couldn’t get any worse but then I came across this and really got lost. Here is what Bliss Tree had to say about this:

“Probably one of the best dumb ways that college students get drunk, the vodka-soaked tampon sounds like a perfect urban myth…except that it’s true. And it’s not just girls that use it. Which means both men and women are willing to insert alcohol into improper orifices to get drunk without drinking. Unfortunately, because the liquor is absorbed through the bloodstream (and not the stomach, which comes with safeguard like vomiting to keep you from having too much), the risk of alcohol poisoning is much, much higher.”

I was just thinking, most teenagers go out, get drunk and have sex right? So what happens if this is how they got drunk? That poor boys penis is going to burn like a bitch and then smell like a hospital for the next 30+ hours.

Seriously, how is something like this even trending?

New Year: New Start?

January 4, 2012

Everyone on Twitter and Facebook have had one thing in common over the past week: “2012, new year, new me”.

This has been a common annoyance for quite a lot of people, mainly my older friends and by older, I mean mentally. The ones who don’t bull s**t and don’t whine about anything. Anyway, what is the big deal with every year the same handful of people saying they’re going to change and be a different person? We all know who they are, we all have them on our feeds and we all know what the outcome will be. Give it a month and I put money on the table that they either A) Start whoring about again, B) End up messing up the relationship they fought oh so hard to get back (you know, the one that you’ve heard them moan about so much over the past 2 months) or C) going back on ALL their resolutions and getting back into their bad habit’s or being shallow.

Everyone who’s doing this should take a big step back and have a long hard think about what they are telling the world online. I don’t think half of them realise this but the decent half of the world are laughing their virtual asses off behind their screens at all these promises of change and then going back to their old selves.

Take baby steps people, make simple resolutions which aren’t just going to help you, but maybe help others around you and make them feel better and if so, please keep them. You’re just providing those who have blogs material to post on… and of course Failbook. They love that stuff.

Worlds Widest Slip & Slide

January 3, 2012

Words cant describe how much I would love to go on this! Actually… not sure how long I would last before being pulled away in an ambulance as I’ve never been on a slip and slide. Still, would love to do it!

Internet Adventure Find (2/1/2012)

January 2, 2012

Wooo, first one I’ve done this year! Not really been doing much so far other than designing logos for clients and playing Grand Theft Auto IV. Anyway, I took half a hour out to have a browse around to see what I could find that’s funny/awesome and here is what I found.

Portal Christmas… Yes

The Resolutions

January 1, 2012

Well, as you know one of my new year resolutions was to stop smoking. I know its only the 1st, but so far I’ve not had one cigarette. I think that’s pretty damn good considering the amount of stress I’ve been under with my graphic work and how many projects I’m starting in one day (today). Lord knows why I told my clients that I would start on the 1st of January. Today and January for that matter is the Monday of the year and it sucks.

Anyway, later on I’ll sort out some posts for the next few days, but until then I’m going to be playing GTA IV on the PS3 and relaxing.

Happy New Year

January 1, 2012

Happy New Year and well done to all of you who 1) are still awake at this time, 2) able to read this amongst the amount of alcohol you have drunk and 3) have survived this long. 

As I have read on many blogs on WordPress and statuses on Facebook and tweets on Twitter, 2011 has been quite a sucky year. I feel like the whole year I’ve been going into the fridge and taking a glass of milk only to find after the first… 2-3 glasses that the milk is actually off. So far I’d like to announce that I have already got to a good start as I’m actually getting a lot more clients for graphic design, which brings my onto my next point: You peeps should totally click that like button on my page! I know many of you may not have seen my work but clicking that button lets me know you care about my blog at least. You doing this will bring a tear to my eye, and make it look good for other clients as well as making me look popular amongst you internet people

Anyway, thank you for taking the time to read, I hope you have a good new years day, and not much of a hang over.
