Cover Page Design

Continuing with my addiction to the triangles, this time it was the cover-page design competition for the college annual report. With a very short notice of 3 days and in the middle of our Urban Design Pre- Final submissions, the triangles were a really convincing choice to create a backdrop here. With very less text to go on the cover-page, I focused on creating an interesting and simple back drop which would allow me to play with the text. Within half an hour managed to create the basic pattern of triangles in grayscale. In the next ten minutes I started trying out gradient effects and blend options and got this very effect I have finally used.

Once the competition results were announced and mine shortlisted as the winner, the faculty asks me to make it look more formal i.e, without the tilt in the text as the office people won't understand the graphic and they are more keen on the content. Also had to align the SPA Logo within the triangle, something I missed in the original design.

The Cholan Remains

Finally I get to visit the Brihadeeshwara Temple at Thanjavur. Being an architecture student and reading about this great temple during the History of Architecture classes in my second year I always wondered how come I've never been there all this while although I stayed just 250kms away. So this vacation I made it a point to visit this magnificent temple.

At Sunrise

Connaught Place, New Delhi
A day before I had to leave home, a friend of mine wanted me to click some pictures of CP looking deserted and so we decided to get there early in the morning for the same. This is one of the photographs I took when I went there.
It was interesting to see all the workers of the different stores playing cricket in the car parking areas on this Sunday morning. You could see some guys standing there waiting for their turn to bat.

Its Raining Light!



An interesting lighting work done at the Grandlays Community Centre, New Friends Colony.
Looks like they have put some LED's within tubes and made them light up alternatively. Also one of first attempts to make a GIF.
