Annie wasn’t sure exactly what she was looking for in her new design, but was ready for a fresh, new look that incorporated her signature corkboard and a baby blue/chocolate color scheme. Using photos of her beautiful family, I decided to integrate social media into her header and keep it simple with a nice “geeky” style font featuring cleaner, uncluttered sidebars and stylish headings. Later, Annie came back to me to modify her header and code in a secondary menu to be added above it in addition to the one that was already in place below. I also coded her subscription form into the header for easy, prominent access for her visitors.
