Yeah, I know, I design books (oh, woefully outdated portfolio…sigh), but sometimes I design other stuff, too. Aside from the wedding invitations I mentioned the other day, I’ve also been working on a few blog design projects, too. I’m having so much fun! Here are couple I completed recently…
Jen McCabe from Honey Kennedy is fancy. Like, really fancy. She’s girly and frilly and loves vintage nautical imagery, and she needed a blog design to reflect those sensibilities while still providing a clean, orderly environment in which to share the work all of the wonderful designers, photographers, and other prettymakers she regularly features on her site. Jen seems to know about stuff before everyone else—her blog is so well-curated (if you’re not reading it already, you should be!), and I couldn’t be happier that she now has a site design that suits her.
Working with Jen was a joy. She really knows her personal style and has the same eye for detail that I do, and there’s nothing more rewarding than helping someone to turn their vision into a reality. I know that sounds cheesy, but it’s true.
My friend Ticara recently returned to blogging at Agonyclite after taking a few months off, and she wanted a new look to go with her fresh start. Ticara’s blog tends to be on the personal side, and she didn’t want a bunch of bells and whistles—she really just needed a basic blog design that complements her style. I decided to go really bold with her logo because the word “Agonyclite” is pretty compelling (I kept reading it as “agony lite”—which is kind of hilarious, but no, here’s the real definition), but I tried to keep it looking fun and feminine, too…just like Ticara.
Thanks, Jen and Ticara, for trusting me with your blog redesigns!
