AT THE MOMENT | A LITTLE SIDEBAR UPDATE

August 17, 2016

If you’re a designer who runs a blog, or someone who frequently reads them, the you know the importance of a well designed sidebar if your blog design contains one. Like most blogs, the sidebar is an important informational component to the page, which needs to be easy to navigate through while also delivering a number of offsite links and tasks that the user may want to take part in.

I currently use a theme through the talented ladies of Blogzilla. While I love the simplicity of my blog design, I had recently been feeling like the borders within my side bar were feeling a little bit to heavy for my liking. Whenever I visited the page, they were really jumping out too much at me for some reason. So, something closer to the sidebar in the theme, Besotted, was what I had in mind.

Although this sounds like such a minor change, I already feel it has made a big difference in the feeling of the design. It’s lighter, fresher, and feels like it has a more relaxed and seamless flow now between blog post content and the sidebar.

INTERIORS | MELBOURNE APARTMENT OF MIRANDA SKOCZEK

August 8, 2016

Along with a few others, Inside Out is one of my favorites magazines for unique, fun and modern interiors. I recently fell in love with this image of an interior I found and knew that second I wanted to search and find more.

This colorful space belongs to Melbourne based painter, Miranda Skoczek. I love her neutrals with accents of pastel and neon that appear throughout…and that enormous pastel pink painting?! I. LOVE. IT!

INSPIRATION | CONSTRUCTED REALITY

August 5, 2016

When you take a photo, do you keep the exact raw image you took? Or do you edit it to how you want to remember that moment? This project titled “Contructed” by Pawel Nolbert is concepted around this exact thought. He raises questions like:

 

“Where does the “photo” end and “graphy” begin?  The use of what tools make it a photography, and distinct it from a graphic? Does it make sense to create that distinction anymore?” – Pawel Nolbert

 

Each of us, especially creatives, have our own unique, personal style that we abide by in our work and social feeds. Maybe it’s lots of color, lots of white, or simplicity, with a wide range of subject matters from landscapes, to cooking, to painting, etc.

I saw how I did this a few times with my recent trip to Portland when I was taking and editing some photos along the way. Of course bright colors and crisp whites came into mine!

I love this take Pawel has incorporated into his and how he uses the architecture and the negative space to play and reflect off of each other in the photo.
