Custom Blog Design
I am just overjoyed with how this custom blog design for Blogger turned out! We stretched Blogger to it’s limits by adding a full width menu bar, custom blockquotes for book reviews, lots of social networking buttons, and a custom book rating system. You really must visit this blog to appreciate it.
In her design homework Jennifer requested a “vintage, romantic feel” with “some gray or black to give it an edge.” After searching high and low, I found the beautiful watercolor flowers from Angie Makes which we used throughout the site.
This blog was built for a team of three contributors and we created separate social links and signatures for each of them. Because it’s primarily a book review blog, they also needed a way to rate and categorize their books. Jennifer and the girls came up with a really cute rating system to help categorize their books.
Most of the book bloggers I’ve worked with have also requested custom blockquotes to use for either their book reviews or to offset the book synopsis’s. These blockquotes can be styled numerous ways and I absolutely love how the top border of this one mimics the blog’s full width header.
I want to thank Jennifer especially for her easy communication and wonderful design ideas. I wish all the ladies at A Love Affair with Books the best as they embark into the world of book blogging!
I can’t say enough good things about working with Katie and the amazing job she did on our blog. I am so glad I found Priceless Design Studio! As a new blogger I was really starting from scratch, she was so helpful from the very beginning and patient with all of my questions and concerns. She made sure the blog reflected our taste and was something we absolutely loved, I’m already getting many complements on how pretty it turned out. We are completely in love with the finished product and couldn’t be happier! Thank you so much Katie!
