The Creative Head

Hi, I'm Rongen. Welcome to my blog - with the purpose to share my skills and to help newbie designers pursue on their first step. I always admire great ideas, designs and techniques of other creatives around the world. Every design and art masterpieces are my inspiration.

Directory of Brunei Darussalam Products

This was the very first book publication I've done for Brunei market, back in 2004. A bloody work and sleepless nights that was really a learning experience for us. My wife did some right-ups and interview while she was pregnant with our first son and i did the photography aside from designing and layouting the whole 300+ pages book. It took us 6 months to finish including client's revisions and requests.

Recently, I was asked to give a quotation for another book design on which a company won by tender. Upon doing plenty of publications for Brunei, I've learned my lesson. It was a very nice feeling that i didn't get the job... haha! They were afraid of my charges i guess. Well, it was a long story and very much confidential. I wonder if they've found a designer-in-cheap (did i say cheap?) who'll work for them for 2 months rush inside their premise with 2 very slow PCs and smoking area environment.
