Taken from

September 25, 2003 - In an odd twist, all those rumors of a Final Fantasy VII sequel from Square Enix have proven true. Is it for the PS2? Is it for the PSP? Is it for the Atari 2600?

No, no and (thinking...) definitely no.

The upcoming issue of Japan's Jump Magazine, a popular comic magazine that every now and then contains exclusive world-reaching videogame announcements, contains first information and pictures from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. This new product isn't a game -- it's a direct-to-DVD computer graphics movie.

As the name may imply, FFVII: Advent Children is a successor to the FFVII storyline. While few solid details have been revealed, it's known that the story takes place two years after the events of FFVII (note: we're not sure which "end" is being referred to -- the end of the events involving Cloud and his silent commrades, or the end involving the Red XIII dude). Something happens to disturb the peace that was returned at the end of FFVII. Images revealed from the DVD seem to show Cloud and Sephiroth, but that's about it.

A Japanese release is scheduled for 2004. No word yet from Square Enix regarding a possible stateside release of the product. The images included in this article's media page were scanned by some folks in Japan who have access to the issue of Jump ahead of time.

Square Enix will be unveiling more information on their upcoming products tomorrow. Stay tuned for what could be more details on this DVD.

to quote my friend... "Looks like Tetsuya Nomura used his latest style (could we say FFX-ish?) for this movie. I personally like the cartoony classic style better. Cloud looks like a Korean in a bad blonde rockstar wig. Still interesting though. Me likeeee!"

Hear ye! Hear ye! The distinguished members of the Artists' Den are hereby called upon to create a mini-portfolio to be sold in the upcoming conventions before the year ends. Details are as follows:

Overall theme of the project: Identity.
Do something you would like to show people who you are and/or what you do. Do something really mind blowing and outta this world!

Specs: Minimum of 2 and a maximun of 5 pages, 6.5" x 8.5" (half the size of a legal bond paper), black and white only. Bahala na kayo sa materials na gagamitin nyo and it doesn't have to be comics. You can do pin-ups, a short story, a poem, prose, a photograph, collage, play with fonts to say something, an ad or poster lay-out... bahala na kayo kung ano gusto nyong gawin. Submit a soft copy if possible. Printing will be done through photocopy so make your art as clean as possible.

Deadline: 1st of October, 2003.

Depending on the number of contributions I'd also like to solicit some contributions for the production of this comic. It's not going to be that expensive, maybe around P50.00 each. We'll still see.

We'll include this in our discussion in our Den meetings. Thanks!

Here's something I dug up from the files back home.

* * *


"Corporate design consultants possess the skills to see and to help others see."
- Peter Gorb, Director, Design Management Unit, London Business School

In 1981, before MTV ever reached one TV, Robert Pittman made a critical decision. He asked a team of graphic designers to create an identity that presented the channel's spirit - "open-ended, fluid, impulsive, spontaneous, defiant, disrespectful, and unlike anything ever before." That decision resulted in one of the world's most powerful logos and launched MTV on its way to becoming the world's most popular music channel and Pittman on to the CEO slot at Time Warner.

One of many success stories, the MTV case history testifies to the ability of graphic design to build strong links between a business and its customers, suppliers, and staff. We could cite similar accounts about Nike, Crate & Barrel, and Starbuck's coffee. But we didn't create this text just to wow you with the value of graphic design, but also to guide you in working with a graphic designer early on so you can create your own success story.

Graphic designers serve businesses by helping them communicate their most important messages to customers, employees, stock-holders, and the general public. Like advertising and public relations, graphic design provides businesses with a strategic tool that can inform people, move them to act, and influence how they perceive products, services, and companies themselves. In fact, as in the MTV example, graphic design can literally transform intangible assets - spirit, attitude, personality - into tangible objects that people immediately understand.

This content area is devoted to helping businesses and other organizations tap the great potential of graphic design. And the way to do that is to understand how graphic design works.
