Thank you to everyone who expressed interest in having a Website Makeover! The response has been overwhelming. If you sent me a request to look at your website, rest assured that I hope to get to each and every site that was submitted, if only to make a few suggestions for how to proceed. In the meantime, if you want to take a stab at redesigning your own site, send me before and after screenshots, and I’ll give you some suggestions and feature your site here on the blog! Let me know if you’re working on your site at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to make use of the tutorials in your control panel.
Jeweler Colleen Flanagan-Ormsby said she wanted her site to be “beachy” to reflect the sea glass that she uses in her work. So we tinted the header, navigation bar, and background to waves of watery blue green. The background and font colors reflect sunlight and sand. We also switched to two of the newer fonts, which complemented each other–a slightly fancier font for the title, and something simple for the description and navigation bar items. Once again, we disabled unused pages to keep the navigation bar as simple and useful as possible.
