day 2075 – bench shelter

the showroom luggage bench i brought home for my parents is revamped with new and improved legs. this hybrid luggage bench and nightstand is now sitting in my living room and turned into a shelter for my family’s number four. i brought it home thinking it’d be the bench for putting on shoes, but i’ll leave the final decision to my parents, as long as they put it to good use

2045 – work deadline

kits collection rendering are due tomorrow – all schemes, streamlines, formulas, and flat lays. it’s been stressful the past weeks leading up to the deadline and especially stressful the last couple days. i’ve been modeling and doing test renders like crazy on three monitors and three computers but at times that didn’t even seem enough. even though i’ve been working so hard on this, there’s still people that will try to prove their noble self by pushing you down and those that completely undervalue what you just did

day 1917 – red feather

a meeting was called to discuss about red feathers and how it went down. red feathers wasn’t exactly an easy project to to work on, nor was it one that people wanted to stick their hands in. what bugs me most is one person kept sticking her nose into things and stirring the pot. there’ll always be people who choose to point fingers, but i’m hopeful there’s enough that wants to solve the problem

day 1884 – bed base revisions

finally a sample was made on what must be the fifth revision. i’ve had it with the millennial bed base revisions and no longer care how everyone wants the design to be. they keep changing my initial design and every time someone has something to say. i personally don’t like the recessed kick, but i’m not going to add my input. i just want this done with so i can turn my attention to next year’s collection.

day 1868 – vignette casegoods

checking out the crops of all the hardwork my team and i put into the best western vignette. very pleased with how everything turned out; a big sigh of relief not only because it’s completed, but completed correctly as i shoulder most of the responsibility. a little side tantrum i must release. sometimes when things turn out well, there’s no credit given. sometimes when things turn out well, there’s still complaints coming out of people

day 1783 – magazine famous

the year-long development of millennial that was not without stress finally paid its dividends. best part of design is when your work or final product gets featured in a magazine. how rewarding it is to have my development appear in a hd expo design magazine. it was a whole team effort that made this happen. this is my first appearance in a magazine and what an unreal feeling it is. let’s keep it coming with the future collections and designs

 

day 1484 Рovertiming 


staying late at work to rush some drawings for stacy garcia meeting. workload has been a little overwhelming the last little while especially with manager away. it’s great that i’m stepping up to ¬†take on more responsibility and that he’s shown more trust, but it comes more overtimes and frequent lunch breaks are not taken. it is exciting that i will have this collection tagged in my portfolio; who knew i’d be designing a whole line of casegoods? maybe this serves as the distraction away from decision making with the grandmaster
