Announcing the Re-launch of Creatively Driven: A New Blog Design
My new blog design is finally launched. I’m so excited to share with you the new and improved creatively driven. It has been a long wait, (about 9 months) but my “baby” is finally out in the world. I want to thank my developer, Zoey Rooney, who did an awesome job making my dream site come to life.
What prompted the change?
Over the past three year’s I have naturally grown from one blog to the next. It started with my first blog: LorettaMay Design Blog, a wordpress.com site, to the first version of Creatively Driven, all the way to now (3.0).
For version one and two of creatively driven I was using a pre-made theme named Harpoon. It served it’s purpose but I wasn’t entirely happy with it.
There were user experience problems, such as not having the ability to click on the image of the post to get to the full post. Also I couldn’t add a subscribe form or images in the sidebar.
So I made the decision after I re-designed my freelance site to create a space for me to share what i’ve learned, experiment and practice new mediums.
I want my blog to be the destination for creatives who seek information on how to start their freelance business, how to stay inspired and keep a healthy work/life balance.
I hope you enjoy the new design. I feel theres room to grow in this space and make it my own.
If you’re interested in starting/rebranding a blog or a website and are not sure where to begin, you’re in luck! I’m starting an online course teaching you the art of brand styling for the web.
- Through this class you will learn about the process of creating a unique brand point of view that will carry through to your website.
- I will teach you how to mood board out your ideas with my super simple photoshop templates.
- I will teach you how to plan out your site’s core functionalities and purpose based off of your business goals.
My hope is that I help you avoid some of the mistakes I made when designing my two sites. I wasted so much time going back and forth, obsessing over the details on things that truly could have been avoided if I had just followed the right process. That process is what this class will give to you.
