Retirement homes are almost non-existent in the Philippines. I guess the concept of letting our old relatives live in some kind of facility seems to be a bit disrespectful as far as our culture is concerned. However, these homes are very well-accepted in other countries. They are popular with older people downsizing into smaller homes but with community facilities, amenities and on-call medical care.
One week into the ALE, I got this commission: A rendering for Stonz Jewellers concept store.
It was conceptualized and detailed by another group of designers but the owners wanted to get the look of it in 3D so DeeDee Studio was tapped to do the visualization. We were given plans and interior elevations plus some pegs to base our 3D model on. Credits to Reign for helping me out with the SketchUp model.
Kids, take your board exam review sessions seriously. You only have to do it once (Hopefully just once. If not, no pressure!) so make it worth it and worth your while.
My mentality before was to drop everything one to two months prior to the exam. Like most, I took a leave from my full-time work to prioritize the studying. However, times get tough (’cause reviewing is so damn expensive!!) and some commitments kept coming so sometimes it is not about priorities but time management. I was lucky enough to work on a couple of rendering gigs during the time.
Most rendering projects are the same – I get the Sketchup model together with some pegs and instructions, I produce the visualization and submit before deadline, the work gets to be shown to the client (sometimes at the other side of the world), I receive the comments and revisions, I edit and submit again.
Hey, it isn’t as boring as it sounds. In fact, last week I got an exciting rendering project!!
