Blog rebranding

July 30th  •  Posted in Blogging

You may have noticed from my tweets or just visiting my blog the last few days, that Miel Cafè had a complete makeover and it’s now all changed and prettier. I was planning to redesign my blog completely for a few months now, but I had no clue what to change for a while since I actually decided to sit down and concretely do something.

This wasn’t my original project by any means, I actually didn’t have a real original project if not some ideas and HTML codes and JavaScripts I wanted to use. Thanks to my boyfriend which had the major idea for this beautiful blog design, I was actually able to put together the blog design I’m most proud of and, yes, I’m super proud of myself for being able to do such things without any external help if not my boyfriend always suggesting lovely ideas to make it better. I can actually say this is the result of everything I learned during these past few months of designing other bloggers blogs, and it’s so nice to see I could put every beautiful thing I learned into one blog design. I know, it feels like I’m talking of my wedding dress, but if you can get the most beautiful design you can put together it must be special and need to be the one. I don’t think I would ever had asked something more or different to a more professional web designer than myself, so I’m super happy about it!

Up to the actually blog design, it was definitely inspired by the idea behind my blog of being a safe and comfy place that reflects my personality and the contents I like to produce. It wants to recreate a comfy Café’s atmosphere and it’s really personal being that every illustration and picture you can see in the design were photos taken by me of things I own and live with everyday. My primary requirement was to achieve an easier and nicer navigation experience, and I think the sticky navigation bar as well as the new pages appearance and the neat disposition of every gadget really make it so simple to find anything a reader might need.

I wanted my blog to have a face you can remember and enjoy, something that made it really special and different from any other, and the only solution I find was to actually inspire the design to myself as an individual different to any other one, with things I like and colors I love. Hopefully this will give its very own vibe to Miel Cafè, which is what I always look for.

You might want to take a look to my new Archive, the redesigned About Me & Miel Cafè page, the quicker Contact Form to ask me any questions you may have, as well as the new responsive and mobile friendly appearance of my blog (check it out here!).

Hope you enjoy the new Miel Café’s interface!

  • Questo nuovo design è veramente carino!
    Io ho sempre amato il blog design 🙂 purtroppo non posso dedicarmici a tempo pieno attualmente!
    Però il tuo blog mi ha fatto voglia di tornare al mio progetto originale per So Colorful, ossia spaziare oltre il make up e parlare di tutte le cose che mi piacciono!

    • Grazie!
      Quando parlavo solo di beauty e makeup mi iniziavo a sentire un po’ costretta, ed è stato bello tornare all’idea originale del blog! 🙂
