I was originally trained as an architect, but soon discovered I had a knack for web development through building by own site to promote my design work.

ZCE

I also specialise in writing scripts to automate tasks in the Adobe Creative Suite, mostly Photoshop and InDesign. If you need any help with writing such scripts, contact me at the links below.

comment Photoshop Action to combine Multiple Photos
As someone who writes Photoshop scripts a lot, I can tell you this would be very complex. That said, it would be an interesting challenge for me and I may have a solution (no promises, though)

comment Looking to find how to make this type of 2D animation
Welcome to Graphic Design. I think it might be worth including a screenshot of the video in your post should the video be removed for whatever reason. Also, are you looking to apply this effect to a still image or motion graphics?

comment Designing interesting looking websites in greyscale, minimal tones
Interesting point about the usability aspect of a black and white website. Unlike when confronted with a photo, poster painting, etc, you're just mostly staring at it.

comment Designing interesting looking websites in greyscale, minimal tones
@DA01 true, but grayscale is sometimes associated with boring or lacking life, how do you make that more 'interesting'? Grayscale is sometimes associated with outdated, like tv and print before colour was invented or outdated like the minimalism trends of the 2000s. What greyscale design would reflect 2013?

comment Make Arabic text show properly in Adobe Illustrator
I'm surprised InDesign doesn't have support for this. I remember there was one Adobe package, might have been Fireworks, that I was able to write Arabic ok, but I guess it's beacuse it was a Macromedia product.

comment Alternative symbols to represent Valentine's Day?
the context in this case is for a tiling background image to a website. I often change it (or to be more exact, let PHP change it) when an event comes up. At the moment I'm using snowflakes, only simple vector lines, and also only two colors, different shades of grey. Reason I didnt want to use heart is because it may be a bit to mushy and undiscrete if it's tiled
