Whatever I like

This is my idea of giving birth…

Few things I enjoyed a few years ago like creating websites. Graphic design a bit, but giving birth to a website fills me with great pride and some form of technical understating. Attention to detail. And no other website is better to put together, as a ‘creative’, such as your own. You’re literally free to do anything you want. And so I did. I am silly in a way so I had to throw in some silly lines here and there. Also, now I have a single point of reference for my hobby of being a DJ as well as a page I can point people who would like to access my mixes to.

This new site incorporates a design style I founded (or rather one I’ve never seen anywhere else in the world wide web) which is a single page. Accessible from any platform such as phones as well and I had to consider the likes of computers with mice as well as touchscreen devices when designing it. Yes, it will look similar to the F5 Website, which I also put together a few years ago, and the idea is to navigate the entire web page on the landing page. All ‘sub-pages’ are actually low-resolution images so that the site can open easily and quickly on even a slow net connection.

Now, this does NOT mean I am now looking to become a big shot DJ. No. It hopefully indicates that I am serious about life.

Sunday evening, 19 January 2014, I gave birth to this here baby that you can visit at this link:


Check it out. Book me. I need the moola! Lol. No, for real (-_-“)

I introduce: Dj (Vin)Meister Branding

I have always imagine I would brand myself some way or some how some day. I have actually been doing the DJing “thing” for longer than I can care to remember. Okay I lie – since 2003. I played at a party where I ‘dropped’ a track called “Casablanca”. I was basically escorted away from the DJ booth shortly afterwards. It took another 3 years to get that dream up and running again by playing at a varsity party in 2006. Which went well-ish. Well, you know the usual poor DJ struggle – Virtual DJ and no other real equipment…

Fast forward to 2014 and I am finally on the brink of my first official, and paying, gig!


It is fair to say I am a little dramatic. And so I went and branded myself as DJ Vinmeister officially. Got a website up and running at all (Check next post). All this in one Sunday where I had just enough peace and quiet to do whatever I pleased. And so I did. I introduce:

MBH – Logo Design

Mocha Brown Hospitality is the brainchild of a former school mate. She’s seen some work I’ve done before and her business was, of course, most welcome. There’s a definite look and feel to my logo designs and this is yes another example of this. I’m learning to incorporate some floral bits to some designs and I think it is working. Well, clients seem happy thus far :p

MBH Logo Design:

MBH Logo - long
MBH Logo - long

MBH Logo - short
MBH Logo - short – website version 0.1

So that design I put up on March 29th (I went and checked) has been up and running for just over a month now 😀 It isn’t complete as the version “0.1” suggests, but we’re still ‘sewing’ this baby together. We’ve been scoring a lot of unique hits on the website and if that’s remotely any sign of things to come then this could be a monster! I have noticed some issues on Safari and most likely on Google Chrome. I need some time to sort this issue out. Really beats me as to why these companies don’t follow ONE standard with browsers. *sigh*

Over and above that we’re working on easy ways to upload news, music, videos and all. We would like this website to run itself in a way.

Fancy Affairs Website – Take Two

Still in design-phase and I’ve had to adjust the design a bit, fonts, images used and the colour scheme. Along with that was a change to the background as well in order to make the entire look and feel as light as possible. The existing website can be viewed at – which should in a way explain the layout of the website. Anyway, this is the result thus far:

Fancy Affairs Website Design

This is a project I got word on late last year and finally the client is ready to go with the project. For a change I had absolutely everything before I started working on this design – preferred layout, images, wording and all. Very nifty and for once I can actually say it is possible I will finish the project in record time 🙂
