I recently had the pleasure of working with Jodi and Audrine from The Glittered Barn LLC for my very first FULL Blogger web-design and branding. Chea, web designer—still don’t feel worthy of that title just yet. The Glittered Barn LLC is a blog all about their creative furniture makeovers in which they sels in her area and on Etsy. We’ve been working behind the scenes on the site design for quite some time and finally put the finishing touches two weeks ago and then installed last Tuesday (talk about a busy week!)
Jodi and Audrine’s only request was to keep their existing color scheme. Gladly taking the design freedom and the color preference, I approached their branding in the literal sense. You know glitter and barns and all that jazz.
Let’s begin with a style guide of the site:
I feel it’s the perfect mix of barn elements without bringing it to the farm animal level. It’s also not too girly by bringing in the pops of green and just the right amount of glitter.
My favorite feature is probably the menu:
Of course that’s just a photo, you’ll have to stop over to her site to check out the ‘hover’ feature- - for beginner coders like myself!
A close second has to be her ‘clickable’ signature:
Again you’ll have to stop over there to play with the functionality.
While you’re over there, go ahead and like her socially too (or conveniently here for you: Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Bloglovin, Google +, or check out her ETSY shop), because she’s going to rock your world this year! While you’re in the liking mood, feel free to follow me socially (in the signature below or in the tabs on the right hand side).
Lastly, let’s take a gander at a before and after:
In the next couple day’s we’ll be rolling out the rest of her branding across her social sites. I’m also creating some special branded price tags for her furniture booths, so keep an eye out!!
So what do you think of the design + branding?
