The Merry Caper

I’m so excited to announce a project that’s been in the works for the past few months: The Merry Caper! It’s the brand-spanking new blog of one of my best friends (and web twin!), Isabel, and I had the honor of designing her online comeback!

This layout was an absolute joy to create. Early in the summer she revealed that she wanted to get back into blogging, and asked if I could design it! She pretty much allowed me free reign, which can actually be quite daunting. Often the pressure of guidelines and limits can be very helpful! However, it was amazing how as we were bouncing ideas back and forth, we were actually operating on the same aesthetic wavelength! She mentioned orange and turquoise, I was thinking coral and turquoise! I asked how she felt about watercolors, she told me she was wanted light, airy, and bright!

Like I said, we’re web twins.

I’m very proud of this layout, especially the details. There’s a bit of jQuery, shortcut icons, and a few other surprises! My screenshot preview doesn’t do them justice, so you need to see them for yourself! Go!

    Thank you so much for helping me get on my feet with all of this. I wouldn’t have been nearly as motivated (if at all) without your talent and enthusiasm, and I’m so glad you had fun with all of this as well! I’m still over the moon with how it all came together and I have you to thank for having my own online space again! You’re far and beyond the best friend/web twin any person could ask for! :D
