Subtle Changes

Walking with Cake: My mood board by Kory Woodard

(My blog’s mood board, created by Kory Woodard.)

Kory installed my new blog design over the weekend, and I am incredibly thrilled!  Things went off without a hitch, and I think everything looks similar, but more polished and more “me.”  She was truly able to capture the look I was going for, but couldn’t accurately depict without some professional help.

I have a new-found appreciation for graphic design, and while I tried teaching myself some basic skills, I hit the wall late last year and realized that I needed a new pair of eyes.  Enter Kory Woodard, and the rest is history.  She was incredibly patient and helpful (turns out I’m pretty picky about the details, who knew?), and we worked for a couple of months to tweak and fine-tune some ideas.

I’m truly pleased with the final result, and I hope you like it, too.  Everything is still in its original place, just with a bit more polish.  I wanted to keep the focus on my writing, and I love a very minimal palette with touches of color.  I think those details truly come across, and now I need to work on my photography (see how this ties into yesterday’s post?), to make things as pretty as possible.

If you’re in need of design work for your blog, please check out Kory’s portfolio.
