The never-ending redesign has ended, I think

creditbutton

I would like to say, "you're welcome!" to any of you who may have been checking out the site regularly over the last month or so. I redesigned it. And then I couldn't stop. It was blue, then red, then purple. I couldn't get it just right. You got quite a show. I think I've achieved lift-off now though. I'm so confident in the new design that I'm … [Read more...]

An update for Lauren

Lauren is one of my tops. She is a fantastic lady! She has been a loyal repeat customer for years (since 2012). She comes straight to me when she needs something web/graphic design related and I'm happy to do it for her if I can.

I'm a designer. It's a huge part of who I am. I not only design online spaces but I LOVE designing my home as well. Here is a peek at my daughter's room. I just recently finished our guest room/playroom and it's fabulously bright and cheerful. Anyway, the reason I'm telling you this is because I've got that itch. I NEED to update our upstairs … [Read more...]

Blogger design for Gathering Inkspiration

blog

Amy already had a logo but wanted a new blog design to help her logo sing. She wanted something clean and simple with a touch of whimsy. After a couple unsuccessful drafts using her logo I tweaked it a bit. The designs she linked me to were very plain and subtle so I came up with the following look. Exclusive look at one of Amy's drafts I … [Read more...]
