I know I went missing after Launch Day, but I’m going to try to start blogging on here more regularly! Stay tuned!
Sketch and Wash was another design that I began when I was still in the Blog Designer Workshop. It was my first WordPress installation ever, and I spent a ton of time on it. I learned a lot about blog design in trying to shoehorn my mock-up into a WordPress theme (so when I went to do my design for Katelyn Brooke Designs, it was MUCH easier!)
Sketch and Wash is essentially an art blog. I knew I wanted something that felt artsy but still modern and clean. I searched other blogs with similar content and I didn’t find any that were similar to what I wanted. For the design, I started browsing color schemes in Adobe Kuler and just started searching key words. I typed in “architect” because I wanted something clean and modern looking (I also graduated with a degree in architecture!)
The changes in the design all just had to do with the coding of the site. I had the most trouble with the header and the menu bar, so I had to modify the initial design to make it work.
Here is the final result! Overall I’m happy with it, but it still needs a little tweaking here and there. Go check it out for yourself!
P.S. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway! I’m so excited about the turnout so far!
