Earlier this month, I was
whining talking with my friend Cam about how much I wanted my blog to look like hers. It’s clean, well thought out and pretty. So very pretty.
The only problem? Doug Bowman, her brilliant designer, is more than a little busy… you know, with his day job. And being Cam’s husband and father to their two gorgeous girls. You know, stuff like that.
But once I stopped complaining, she said she thought she might be able to convince him to consider it.
And, friends? He agreed to create a space for me that meets my current needs and allows me room to grow.
And on top of all of that? It’s really lovely.
He took my list of vague descriptors — clean, lots of white space, cohesive, easy to navigate and pretty and worked his magic.
I’m in love with all that he’s done here and I’m still uncovering little gems he’s spread across the site.
Doug incorporated so many elements that came together to give this design real meaning. See that little group of circles up there in my header? Those represent each member of my family. They overlap and are inseparable from one other, yet also flow independently.
Sigh. Doug gets me. He really gets me.
Thank you for coming by and peeking at Doug’s design. Can you hear me squeeing from there?
And to Doug… thank you a million times over. You were amazing to work with and I’ll never forget how intuitive, patient and creative you were through this process. I love my new space and I can’t wait to spread out and get cozy.
