WHA Patch Design Process

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This product was not a tacticful-company-goal-oriented decision. It was rather a selfish one. I'm a big collector of these accessories, from pins to stickers to patches. I've always wanted to make one of my own, but never had any strong idea that I can resonate with. With the birth of WHA, this turnout to...

WHA Trips—Maldives—Day 4

9:34AM For day 4, we left our island and ventured into another, one that's slightly larger. This island hoppin' day trip is one of the many activities our hotel offered. It was not free and there was a requirement of at least 10 attendees before we set sail. Several groups before us never...

WHA Trips—Maldives—Day 3

8:24AM Day 3 of the trip; our second day on the island. Still jet-lagged but nothing stopped us from getting up early for our first full day on this honeymoon paradise. Back at their main restaurant, the only spot that served breakfast: Although breakfast comes with our stay, nothing's shy of quality.  Aside from the...

WHA Trips—Maldives—Day 1&2

I've done a bit of traveling this past few months around Asia. Of the many destinations, the most notable would be my honeymoon trip to Maldives—the ultimate honeymoon fantasy land according to many, my wife included. I was skeptical, though. I knew little about Maldives except it's slowly sinking and the price...

Design Matters—WHA App Design Process

While the idea and functionality of an app are critical, we're at a time where design and form begin to weigh more heavily. The plethora of calculator and weather apps exist not because of their revolutionary idea, but for their beautiful aesthetic and ease of use. The audience and users want more than...

WHA Road Trips—Portland, Oregon Pt.1 of 2

Able to easily find a spot to get work done while on the go is what we strive to accomplish. The journey of putting our app through real-world tests and exploring foreign work spaces as we travel inspired this new section—WHA Road Trips. Wrapping up 2014 and welcoming 2015 with open arms, Cody and I along...

WHA’s Guide to Cafe Etiquette

I'm big on working at a cafe, and I've been to a fair amount of them. The more I visit, the more I realize there's an ecosystem that one should learn to appreciate and preserve. Like dining in a restaurant, working at cafes have their own sets of guidelines.  Don't...

WHA Decals—and how I used them

Who doesn't like stickers, let alone the 631 Series die-cut indoor grade vinyl decals. I was a big collector of stickers until someone stole my collection of at least 200 pieces when I was 6 (that bastard). Though, I don't collect as avidly today, the enthusiasm of receiving and stumbling across a sick sticker never faded. Like all brands,...
