I am so excited to finally share some news I've been keeping under wraps.
I've been working on a new blog design for the last couple months and we are almost there. EEEKKK! I am so giddy with excitement. It looks AWESOME and reflects me so well. Savannah at Maiedae has been working with me and she's been so patient and helpful.
This process has been a long one. It took me forever to finally find someone I liked and felt would do the design I'd been yearning. I searched endlessly for a designer that I thought really captured the look I was going for. It is so overwhelming how many designers there are out there and how many different looks you can go for. You get lost in it all.
I first started by looking for blogs and websites that I liked the design of. Basically the "look" I wanted to achieve.
Here are some of my fav's.
Next I started finding out who the designer was of blogs that caught my eye. When I came across Maiedae, I knew. Just look at their site and portfolio. It reflects the style I was looking for to a "T".
It could not have been any better. Seriously! I cannot tell you how many other designers I sought and just never contacted them because they were not 100% for me. When I found Maidae's site there wasn't even a question in my mind. I found what I was looking for. I sent an email right away and told them I needed their help! Fast!
Next, I started my "Blog Design Ideas" board on Pinterest. This helped me gather things I liked and saw inspiration in. Colors, texture, fonts, logos, branding.
