Me & Myself (M&M) - website layout

After came back from trip, put myself in busy again in completing the website layout entitled ME & MYSELF (M&M) in order to fulfill the requirement for Interactive Advertising (ADV 549) course. Seems that I have strong connection with VERSACE since 2005, I decided to come up with the brand VERSACE and using roman architecture element as the metaphor for Versace. Simplicity yet minimal, the M&M is combination of fashion and history to make it more interactive yet attractive. Although it really hard to think the suitable metaphor, with the guideline from Advisor, slowly manage to extract the idea of the metaphor into M&M. This website project will estimate complete at the end of May 2012.

Tupac Hologram Performance Coachella 2012

"and even when I'm gone, my music will live forever" 

An Icon. A Symbol. Forever A Legend. Sometime, we have to lose something before we can truly appreciate them. Yet, he still a human like us. As time passed by, modern people like us tend to forget slowly what happen in the past. Tupac left us for almost 16 years, yet, his music still lives on. Recently, a lifelike hologram of the late Tupac Shakur hit Coachella’s main stage during Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s set and performing songs “Hail Mary” and “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted". According to an interview with Nick Smith, president of AV Concepts, the San Diego company that created the hologram , told MTV,
"The Tupac hologram was several months in the planning and took nearly four months to create in a studio and though AV Concepts was not able to reveal the exact price tag for the illusion, the cost anywhere from $100,000 to more than $400,000 to pull off. I can’t say how much that event cost, but I can say it’s affordable in the sense that if we had to bring entertainers around world and create concerts across the country, we could put [artists] in every venue in the country."  - Nick Smith

The holographic performance was a first for Coachella and for hip-hop, and it was pulled off with the full approval and support of the late Tupac’s mother, Afeni Shakur. Known for being strenuously protective of her son’s image since his 1996 death, Shakur agreed to the high-tech tribute after Dr. Dre personally told her his plans and asked for her approval.

The four-minute holographic performance by the late hip-hop icon cost quite a bit to execute and in what is sure became one of the most memorable festival gigs in recent times.
