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 email@example.com. Be sure to make use of the tutorials in your control panel.
Barbara Spies, watercolor artist, had one of our old non-responsive sites. It only took a few clicks to switch her to a responsive site. We also tinted the grey background with a bit of green, to match her natural subject matter. We changed the fonts so that they were still simple but made them a little more elegant and up-to-date. And we changed the font of her name/title, so that it popped against the grey green background. We also cleaned up the navigation bar by disabling pages that had little or no information on them.
