I just updated my blog design! I have always wanted to design an unique header, and I finally made it! I love this header so much, I am very happy with the way it came out. I want to make everything girly and romantic. But, I keep the layout simple to let my contents and images stand out. In this post, I will show you how I designed the header.
I chose two fonts for my title, I got "Ignite the Light" for Meili, and "Honey Script" for Journey. I downloaded the fonts from dafont.com, but I made some adjustments to get the shape and style I want. The color black will be too harsh, and grey will be too plain, so I decided on a reddish brown to go with the color scheme. On the ribbon, I stated what Meili Journey is about with the font 'Harrington".
I put together everything on Photoshop, but I created the little roses on Illustrator. I tried them in red, orange, and pink. But, I finally decided to use the rosy red color. I am very happy with the result. It's exactly what I pictured in my mind, romantic, girly, and simple.
For the rest of the blog, I based my design on the Simple White template. I chose a rosy color as the theme color, which goes pretty well with my header design. I also added a menu bar, so now, you can select which category you want to read about.
There are still some things I want to add and adjust. I want to design my own social media icons. And, I would like to change the size of the menu to fit the width of the page. To me, personalizing my blog is also a fun part of blogging. Good thing that there are so many resources online to learn about blog design. I will recommend some useful blogs and Youtube channels in future posts.
Do you like the new look of my blog? I would like to hear some suggestions.
