Hello! My name is Jopal Matthew Dumanig, and that’s where I got the initials jmd. So basically, I got the jmdstyle online nick when my brother named my account in our family PC as Matthew_Style, so from that, I used my initials instead of my second name and the rest is history. So, NO, I did not get my nick from Gangnam Style.
I live in the beautiful Davao City, Philippines; one of the most livable cities in Asia, well yeah, proud Davaoweño! Random. I finished my Bachelors Degree in Information Technology at the University of the Immaculate Conception last March 2010; taught Multimedia major subjects and became a year book layout editor for 2 years there after I graduated. I was also a Student Body President, Vice President and Legislative during my stay; and was also sent to Programming Competitions in both National and Regional divisions.
I have been using Photoshop since my senior year of high school, granted my works before weren’t totally good, I have been practicing and using different methods till I am what I am now. I have been creating Web designs for 4 years and illustrations for a year. I started Web development during my Junior year in College due to requirements in classes and have been doing so since. My first full web application is an Online Library Search Engine for the University of the South Easthern Philippines and an E-Learning Management System with Screen Sharing for Thompson Christian School.
Currently, I am an active member of DUAAD (Davao United Assosiation of Animators and Designers) and a volunteer Graphic Designer for Soshified and Secret four. So yeah, thanks for stopping by and checking out my porfolio site. If you need to talk to me about anything, as long as I can help, you can contact me.
