When it comes to resourcefulness there is nothing I can't or won't learn: Film & Media Design, Public Relations/Writing, Graphic Design, Photography, Web Design & 3D Visualization. Yes, I am professionally trained in all of them, but I am also a great cook, too.
Having lived and worked in a foreign country and worked with people from just about every continent, there is nothing better than cultural diversity, different traditions, languages, foreign foods. It is always best to have more than one perspective at your disposal.
While I know a fair bit about web design it is Java I haven't quite grasped yet. And although I know the basics of 3D Max, I am getting trained up in Cinema 4D and some fancy schmancy 3d visualisation stuff. Yay!
The “My Own Vintage” Collection consists of photos taken with random (old) cameras I was given or acquired over the years. I like how New York City looks rather ordinary in this set.
Western Jackdaws (ger. Dohle) – Photos taken with a Nikon D3000 + Nikkor telephoto lense + Lense Hood + Hoya Sky Filter.

This is one of my many favourite quotes, the kind of quote that I never seem to be able to remember when I need them. I love poems, but more so do I love these short but pregnant slogans that express so well how we feel, or sum up a moment in time, a change, […]
Don’t get me wrong, I love my new Smartphone, but it bugs me that I keep forgetting to turn off the darn WiFi every day when I’m at work (sadly not allowed to use the Wifi there). It is such a battery drainer, but somehow Samsung nor Android have included some sort of automation app […]
The stuff I do when I have spare time. I occasionally play World of Warcraft and two of my characters can walk on water (you have no idea how handy that is) so I wanted to create a macro that plays the song “Walk on the Ocean” by Toad the Wet Sprocket. Silly idea it […]
Just because I like something, doesn’t mean I can’t be critical about it. In the past few years IKEA has spit out some really awful stuff and discontinued some of my favorite items, but that’s how life goes.
For weeks now I have been trying to uninstall a dead and broken version of the Google Talk plugin on my laptop and whatever I tried would not work. I even searched for the files manually and deleted every trace (yes even the registry) of them, but to no avail. (…) So today I found a solution. It’s so sadly simple it made me laugh.

I just found some “new” Lipton SunTea down in my local shop and brought a pack home to try (haven’t yet though). It brews in cold water in just 4 mins which is especially great when you are traveling, I thought. What confused me a bit was the odd name choice. Why not just call […]

Okay, not sure at what point you can call a bicycle “vintage” but this 20 year old Raleigh Activator I acquired a few years back for 40GBP is my pride and joy. When I saw it in a charity shop (and needed a bike) I just had to get it. People’s opinions about it go both ways […]
The wonderful thing about the web is, that I discover new and wonderful things all the time that make me happy or make me cry (or both at the same time). Via the portfolio website behance.net I stumbled across a mixed media short film by Salon Alpin. It’s about a little paper bookmark that discovers […]
Graphic Designers & Bicycles | Allan Peters’ Blog For my first post on the world-renowned Allan Peters blog I thought I’d shake things up a bit. I’m tired of seeing posts on unattainable design shops and right-out-of-school-kids portfolios that are b… View post on Google+ Post imported by Google+Blog, a plugin created by Daniel Treadwell.

I visit many different websites infrequently for inspiration and to just browse visuals. When it comes to book covers, a very good resource is the Book Cover Archive which is a bit like a Pinterest board but just for books and their cover designers.
Hah! Finally some "scientific" backing to my sentiment :) The Secret of a Successful Programming Language? A Really Great Beard | Wired Enterprise | Wired.com According to Tamir Kahson, there's a direct correlation between the success of a programming language and the length of the facial hair on the face of the man who built […]
