Blog Redesign

Goodbye picture bubbles! You will never see these beauties again. Paired with the fork/spoon/knife background, we decided it was just too much going on. After designing the new header in anticipation of making aprons, we realized it was a great fit for the blog as well.

A design overhaul is not as easy as it seems. We thought we could just switch out banners and "voila!", redesign over, but when we changed the header image the colorful spoon/fork/knife background competed for dominance. One had to go! DUN DUN DUN. You can obviously see which won that battle. The background was cute and we loved the color scheme but it was a busy pattern and we figured we could keep the color scheme anyway. Our new look is clean & simplistic.

What do you think?

By the end of the night we were exhausted and slaphappy. I can't believe a quick header change turned into a 3 hour makeover! We truly wish we had videotaped the experience to share. Here are some winning quotes from last night:
  • "That shit aint integrated." [Megan] (in reference to social networking)
  • "I can't believe we're looking for vibrant wood!" [Kelsey]
  • "It's obviously clearly not professional." [Megan] (in reference to our hardcore design skillz)
  • "Kelsey, I think you just saved our lives." [Megan] (not to be dramatic or anything)
