|Old Design of 'Be You'|
I have been mentioning these past few weeks, more so on my twitter account that I have been working on something really exciting for my blog and it was this beautiful redesign.
This has been in the works since September and I am so happy it is now live before Christmas. The whole purpose of this redesign was to have it simple and for the main feature to be the blog header design.
The concept of the blog header design is to show personal growth and with my love for butterflies, it was important I had this incorporated and was the main influence behind the design.
The header design was created by Michelle Baron she is a fantastic illustrator and her work is absolutely amazing! She is lovely to work with and understood my concept perfectly, she worked from a blank canvas as I only explained my design brief with no mock up sample for guidance and I am so happy with the result!
Michelle creates illustrations for many things, from self-portraits, blog header designs, book illustrations, invitations and much more. Michelle caters for anything you need and can capture your concept through her custom orders. If you are interested and love her work as much as I do then please do not hesitate to contact her via here
For the rest of the design I went to Felicity, this is my second time working with her, she did my initial design shown above when I was pretty much new to blogging and she is an absolute pleasure to work with, I was so excited to work with her again!
This time round was a lot easier as I stripped back everything and wanted the rest of the design as you can see simple and black with a few elements here and there to stand out, such as my Instagram is now a slideshow, my signature which I love which Felicity managed to tie the butterfly from my blog header design and now will include a quote of the day for every post which is a lovely personal touch I wanted to bring to relate to each post I publish.
I also asked Felicity to dedicate a page for my nail arts, as I love nail art and do published step by step guides frequently it would be easier for all my readers to click on the link and to have a read. My about me page is also changed with a logo which is simple yet effective which I love.
Felicity offers many services from custom and static blog designs, business cards as well as providing other online branding she is fantastic graphic designer and if you are interested or looking to for a redesign then please do contact her via here
I hope you like this redesign as much as I do and would love to hear your thoughts.
