Project Reveal :: Pretty Things Blog

I just wanted to share the newest project I completed this week — an updated design for the lovely Lori’s blog, Pretty Things!

Several weeks ago, Lori had emailed me about revamping her blog design. She wanted something simple, clean, and colorful, and that ultimately reflected her. I can totally relate, and it was an awesome challenge to channel a friend’s style into a blog design.

We started by talking about several ideas for the blog banner. Lori wanted something that showcased the things she loved most in life — writing, her son, jewelry, and fun colors — so we decided to work with her personal photos. I kept the focus solely on those photos by working up a clean collage for the banner, then pulled the colors for the rest of the blog from those photos. The layout remained the same, since that worked for Lori; a few tweaks and a set of custom buttons later, we had a design that we are both crazy about.

I love when that happens!

P.S. Thanks for all of your awesome responses yesterday! It’s definitely helping me clarify a few things.
