So things are looking a little different around here! :) Don't judge me yet - it's not finished!!!
It will probably keep on changing for the rest of the year as I try to get it just right. I don't know if I will ever get it there, but I have to at least start.
So here it is - a clean slate. It's like spring cleaning. Getting rid of absolutely everything before going shopping for new stuff. It's not exactly what I want yet, but I was so comfortable with my other design that if I didn't just do it, I'd never be motivated to work on it.
I'm finding it really hard to "package" myself into one particular design. I really don't know how to brand myself. I like too many things, and none of those things fit into the same category, therefore, I don't fit into any particular box.
I'm a little bit country, a little bit hippie, a little bit vintage, a little bit urban. I am an outdoors girl - wildflowers, trees, leaves, feathers, mountains, beaches, forests, etc. are my favourite places to be. But I am also addicted to historical downtown buildings, apartments, houses, etc. and have an unhealthy obsession with looking at home decor magazines and websites. I also love a good derelict urban scene. Bricks, stairs, windows, doors. And I don't have a favourite colour.
I am a designer's worst nightmare. I once read that the worst thing for designers is to be hired by someone who doesn't know who they are. I don't think that's my problem- I think that I know who I am, but I just can't fit into one palette, into one theme, into one box.
So I'm deciding to keep the blog clean and let my pictures and words do the talking. I don't want this to be a place where I can only post my photography work. I want to post whenever and whatever I feel like, so I think the bare design leaves the door open to whatever I choose.
Let me know what you think and if you have any ideas or tips for me! :) I'm Googling a lot of html help as I speak so I need all the advice I can get!
(One specific question I do have is - do you think I should keep signing my photos?)
