IT’S ALIVE!

28 May 15

My shiny new website is finally live! Hurrah!

When I went freelance back in October and started looking at designing my new site I knew I wanted some form of branding for it. I’d been playing around with geometric shapes, and ended up with something that was a combination of my initials.

I eventually narrowed it down to one I liked, and toyed with the ideas of using the different colours from the logo to represent different types of work on my blog and portfolio.

Next job was to design my website, although I hadn’t done much web design before. Thankfully I had my awesome friend Amber on hand to help me out. After asking her a million questions I sent over some images of how I wanted it to look – the portfolio, blog etc, and she worked her magic and built it exactly as I’d imagined it looking… seriously, Amber, you’re a star!

I’m so excited to finally share it! Have a nosy around, click on EVERYTHING, and if anything doesn’t seem quite as it should be, let me know! :)

 

 

Watermelons

To balance out the rainy post last time I thought I’d do something a little more summery.

This time watermelons, I’m not even a fan but they always make me think of sun-shiny weekends!

Sunshine on a rainy day

More experiments in front of the TV, inspired by the predictably pants British weather.

I then turned it into a repeat pattern. I quite enjoy playing around with these patterns whilst watching TV, its a fun way to try out little experiments.

Cross Stitch Patterns

I’ve recently been playing around with making cross stitch patterns in illustrator and decided to actually have a go at sewing one.

Just a little mini weekend project to keep me occupied, I’ll have patterns available soon!
