Wendy from the bookcooker contacted me about redesigning her Blogger blog. She is a past client of mine, from my beginning days of blog design, so of course I was excited to work with her and upgrade her look.
I’m really happy that she wanted a new design because some of my initial designs are hard for me to look at. I’ve really come a long way when it comes to my work. If you won’t laugh, I’ll show you what it used to look like. Don’t judge me too harshly. 😉
Granted, it is what she asked for, but still not one of my favorite designs, and it definitely doesn’t reflect any of my design style (which I like to infuse in each design I currently do).
So, you’ve see the before. Here is the after:
This design is more pleasing on the eye, especially since we got rid of that LOUD, red background. I am a big fan of the color scheme we decided to go with, and I love the social media icons and how they change upon hover. I love the extra large photos and how they really ‘pop’ out from the design/layout.
If you are looking for some great new recipes inspired by the books Wendy reviews, take some time to visit her site. You won’t regret it.
