January’s Custom WordPress Designs

February 11, 2012

Instead of blogging all of my designs individually as I finish them, I decided that I would just blog each months designs at one time. January was a busy month, but February looks like it’s going to be even busier! I’m so excited about the designs that I’ve finished recently and the new ones in the works right now! Here’s a peek at the latest designs from yours truly:


Senior Spot Chicago is a Couponing/Discount site targeted at reaching the 55+ community. I was excited to work with Nicole on this project and hope to be working with her again in the future as her LLC grows. She’s planning to add 30+ new cities to her Senior Spot Group in the future.

This was actually just a revision for me. I worked with Jamie a few months ago on this site and she found a color scheme that she liked way more (you can view her old design here). I spent some time revamping and redoing her colors to make it pop a bit more.

I was excited to work with Christy on this project. She’s actually a local business owner and fellow Coast Guard Spouse here in Kodiak. Her project was a bit different for me, but I love how her site turned out.

Priscillia was a fantastic client to work with! When she got ready to start her design, she sent me a detailed outline of how she wanted her site laid out as well as a handful of images that she wanted included in her site. Not to mention, she wanted her site to be only black and white. She’s not quite finished adding content yet, but make sure you check it out.

And lastly, I had the chance to redo my BFF Amy’s photography site. She was my very first WordPress Client back in the summer last year and I’ve been itching to up the ante and give her site an overhaul. It’s not secret that as you learn you want to improve the things that you did when you first started and her site was no exception. Her logo is one of my favorites to date and represents her as an individual (she has a thing for stars, so we were excited to incorporate it into the new design and logo). I also did her Family Blog back in November. Make sure you check out her new site!

      It’s been a whirlwind to say the least. I have no clue how I do it. Or how I stay awake during the day. LOL You should really consider WordPress. 🙂 I’d love to work with you on a design!!
