Background

Lacey is a longtime blogger, new(ish) mom, and NYC gal who wanted a new look for her blog. (This is when I wish I remembered to take before screenshots.) Her old blog was sweet, but I wanted to go for something more bold and fun – just like Lacey.

After developing the color palette and some font choices for her site, The bold header grabs the readers’ attention, but the rest of design isn’t so loud that it distracts from Lacey’s content. (Always important on a blog – it’s about the BLOG, not just the design. Content is king and all that.)

To tie the header into the site, the sidebar widgets reflect the header in the layout, uppercase letters, and block of color. The hover effect on the navigation menu added a touch of fun, with the hand-drawn lime green asterisk.
