Ooh, this October was pretty intense when it comes to design blogs. But don't get me wrong I'm not complaining! :) today I want to share with my latest work which is D&P good for you blog.

what I do:

blog design
illustrated menu

meet the client

This blog is run since 2009 by the Polish couple: Dominika and her husband Piotr. This charming couple from Gdansk writes a reviews of cosmetics for men and women, advice about beauty, skin treatment, sometimes about blogging culture. The post content is always valuable and in high quality but usually written spontaneously. The blog for them is a pleasure not a duty. Oh, and they are rabbit lovers :)

about the project

We started from picking the color palette and decided to have brown and soft beige tons. I created this moodboard and I was ready to start, I was designing for the first time vintage looking blog so this was a challenge but the final effect is pretty awesome :) Features in this blog are: Magazine style of post, vintage feel, custom blog and post footer, illustrated menu, related post widgets, custom search buttons and of course mobile view styling. After one month of designing and coding we lunched the site. Here is some brandboard and previews:

0
Do you remember this moodboard that i posted nearly the month ago? I prepared it on the occasion of my next project for the blog template. Read more down below about this blog makeover :)

what I do?

blog design

meet the client

This special project was for Merve Gizem Oluş from Balköpüğü BlogBalköpüğü means "honey bubble" and this is a hair colour. (Can you imagine that? ;) ) She lives in Turkey and write about DIY, lifestyle, beauty, outfits, DIY projects and shopping experiences. This amazing women won a prize of "Most social blog of the year" from the newspaper Hurriyet and Balköpüğü Blog is very popular in Turkey. I was super excited when we get in-touch and Merve decided to work with me. She also have a cute cat which has a serious amount of picture in Balköpüğü instagram.
Now Merve starting in contest for "Best Style" so my blog design will be assessed by the jury. I hope that Merve win the price and I'll be so lucky to be part of her success - so fingers crossed:)

about the project

Merve at the beginning wanted to have a design that will differentiate Balköpüğü from other blogs, unlike the classical blog designs. So I realized that this project will be very personal with customized blog elements. We established the color palette which was gold, pink and a little blue and general look of blog. I designed drop-down menu, post titles stylization, about author picture, illustrated menu and wide range of elements - pretty much everything was customized and redesigned. But I won't describe everything for you, when you can look around on Balköpüğü Blog and see on the pictures below :)

2
Let me introduce you with new project. I'll be redesign Polish beauty blog - the D&P. Ohh, I'm so in love with this colors - mocca, beige, soft shades of brown, pink and yellow. Especially during the autumn hot tea of coffee are my essentials for existence. When I look at this moodboard I almost can smell the delicate coffee. And this peachy and pink are my favorite things in the world. So energetic. 

But in blog makeover I'll be more focused in mocca brown and chocolate shades so the style of the blog will also fitting for men readers. I don't want to whole design was strictly for women.

DESIGN WORK 04: my fat me ania

0

what I do

blog design
logo design

meet the client

I was making the blog design for Ania from London. She write a food blog: my fat me ania. She isn't vegetarian or vegan, but many of her recipes are. 4 years ago she was diagnosed with PCOS and within the last 18 months she put more than 3stones weigh. Her eating habits are changing now and moving towards enjoying clean, healthy, and raw food. she also try to use whole, unprocessed and gluten free ingredients as much as possible. Ania love eating food, especially while in the presence of good company and experimenting with food, creating new recipes and improving the old ones. This blog is her journey to healthier and better life.

about the project

My job was to create minimalist and clean blog design with watercolor design elements and logo. I coded magazine style for labels and archive pages to show recipes differently. I added a drop down menu for better navigation, custom social media icons and lovely about author widget with my own illustrations. I tried to gently sneak purple / pink  color palette  into blog design, to keep fresh look, not to overwhelm the reader with those color. On a white background, they stand out nicely and they are silent ambassador of this blog. Custom mobile styling and blog footer closes the project. See for yourself:

progress 04: my fat me ania

1
Cheerio! I am happy that I have a wonderful new client - Ania from my fat me ania. This is food blog about diet and healthy meals. She definitely needs a blog makeover. We establish sweet, and bold color palette and I'm ready to share with you propositions of logo. Must have for Ania: watercolor background - which I begin to specialize ;) Also I prepared secondary logo with handrawn (by me) illustrations of kitchen supplies. So I had a chance to work on my new Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch Tablet, gain new skills and fool around with Illustrator. But results are truly awesome. I have super fun time, and God, I really love my job! More about her final choices and blog makeover soon :)
