Surprise Revealed !
*Watch the Video First*
I am happy, excited, in love and beyond with my surprise to you readers.
I hope you fall in love with it as much as I did. I hope the surprise is worth waiting for.
There is a lot to say, discuss and celebrate. So you can either click below and read the full details now, or just look around, hopefully enjoy this piece of my soul that im giving whole heartedly to you.
Me and the design team can not wait for your constructive feedback “Strum me like a guitar, blow out my amplifier” and take me higher with your feedback
Categorizing works best with my brain so here is the breakdown:
What you see is a reflection of my soul, very personal, who I am, my current state of mind, where I am today. Just like anyone else, I made mistakes, sinned, hallucinated, rebelled and made the devil’s job easier. I thank GOD for the gift of growth, enlightenment and maturity.
The basic elements that represent nature seen on the logo are common grounds that my soul rests upon.
Sun, light/ energy/ creativity.
Water, nourishment/ fulfillment / moisture.
Trees/ Grass/ Flowers, beauty/ earthy/ roots/ nurture.
Butterfly/birds, freedom/ possibilities/ higher grounds.
Mountain, wisdom/ knowledge/ patience.
I truly believe, deep in my heart, that you can never go wrong with nature. The direction I wanted was something stripped down to the roots, earthy, real, peaceful, moves away from current trends, yet set new ones.
Speaking of trends, Circus BC (design company & new family) decided to set NEW trends that others will follow shortly:
- Design a logo that is embedded/part of/molded into the main artwork, making it the major element as smooth as it could possibly be.
- Create flash animation that adds richness to our high end visual elements. Still, its simple and spacious. Eye pleasing in other words.
Since spirituality is what I live for, I decided to use this well known quote by two of the most beloved prophets ever “Let There Be Light”, well said by Jesus (Essa) son of the virgin Mary and Mohammed peace be upon them all. All prophets, inspired me to see the light found within us. If these people I quote are who I aim to please after GOD, then I know im on the right path.
I hope when you read this slogan, you find/sense a smile upon your faces. I hope you see the light, kindness, love and peace within you before you ask others to give it to you.
Plus, a very special message to someone I know is reading this “Sometimes you have to let go of the good things around you, to let great things replace them” Bless you. I forgive you. I love you.
Well, its a really long story, I wish Miss Noor Al-Wazzan would give you some insight to it (Check her out next week on p0ach) I can say that it started with a phone call, an apointment, then there I was, one step closer to my new creative family.
I first sat down with the ever so wonderful/talented Miss Noor Al-Wazzan and insanely creative, coffee lover, Bechara Imad on a long white table a few months back. The room was all white, stretched table, big windows, just the three of us. They said “Talk to us about yourself” I did and we went through many details about me, my brain, how I saw things, what I want to avoid, what I want to add, just the technical stuff, nothing visual.
Trust me when I say that I was a bit hesitant, on so many levels. I dont know how to explain it, its just how I was.
This hesitation DIS-APPEARD the moment I saw the sketches. Understand that the sketches were not some fancy good looking drawings. These were decoded scripts that they translated from my brain cells right on to paper. THEY DECODED ME. I dont know if you understand this, or have the ability to do so BUT the ability for anyone to crack my brain open and give me a vision I kept deep inside of me on paper is beyond words. Astonishment was the phase I was in.
Everything I said on our first meeting, was written down, saved and filed. They went through it, analyzed it and me all together then gave me the mold of this mixture. I loved it and just ran away with it !
The designs kept going back and forth, loved the process, QUALITY, level of understanding and overall presentation. What I mean by that is not having to choose between designs randomly, they would give me two designs for instance and say ” look, we chose this because of this reason, we chose that for this particular reason and since this is your blog you have the final say” ofcourse with their recommendations and strong vision.
I loved how organized the process was, we went from A – Z almost effortlessly. The meeting, goal setting, future vision, creative breakdown. Let me be honest here. What we are talking about is a BLOG. For them to give me all this attention was just beyond my expectations, BIG TIME. Specially the quality of work presented, I loved it. I honestly did.
Being very sharp on time and deadlines, I had an absolute ZERO fuss in that field with them, they were always quicker, sharper and on time.
I dont know how they managed shutting down my craziness, insanity and dinosaur hormones. I dont know how but they did.
I may not have alot to say in the technical field here. Why ? well its simple because I understand nothing so Mr.Abby who works over there as the insane/creative/wordpress master mind, does not know how to say the word “NO”. He does not say NO at all. Everything I ask he says “yes we can do it” or “yes, easy”. That, to me, kept my comfort level going up with almost zero boundaries.
Abby Im not done with you yet, HAH !
Ala’a your great too man ! we have to work on other things besides the insane water effect you brought to the table !
You asked for it, we got it for you, “Your wish is my command”:
- Arabic text enabled.
- Bottom down page navigation to check previous posts easily ( i know, PRAISE THE LORD HAH!)
- Bigger posting space.
- All previous comments posted on the About ME and CONTACT pages have been restored, fully.
- Minor requests done, enhanced and fixed.
- Check the bottom page for the actual new logo with an embedded button for the design company also.
The message of this blog is loud and clear. Give back to the community the best way I know how so help me GOD.
I have alot of projects that I am working on right now to serve this blogging community, current and new talents and there are things that will hopefully reach the scale of the whole country too.
I just know that If I die today, I’ll be happy. At least I thought of giving back.
Bless you all.

SPECIAL THANK YOU NOTE:
To my two angels Jacqui & Ananyah who worked so hard not just in designing the previous website, but making me fall in love with the details so much that I did not want to change the mannequin/skeleton the built for me, I decided to stick to what they gave me and put up a new slogan, identity, logo, header and fix the things I mentioned earlier. They have a company called JAM DISH designs, check them out HERE.
