This design was a slam dunk. We started on Monday, and were done on Thursday. I think that’s a new record. Whitney and I have been friends for several months now and so I had a leg up in knowing what her style was like. She had a lot of ideas in her questionnaire, so I made two inspiration boards at the onset in hopes of getting a better grip on our direction.
Whitney liked the header set up better in the second board, but we both agreed that some of the colors had to go. We decided to ditch the glitter completely, and I only used the green as the link hover color. Once I started the test site, everything started to fall into place! I had so much fun watching everything come together.
Make sure you go check out The Observant Turtle! I think my favorite part is the footer- we used Whitney’s sorority’s creed as the text, and I just love how it turned out!
