blog design: bamboozle beauty

Jemma from Bamboozle Beauty Blog first approached me towards the end of february with the desire of simplifying her blog design and layout whilst making it represent her personality more. The key words for this design were pretty, girly and a touch of vintage. I think that what I came up with represents this well without representing too much of the typical shabby chic look everyone is after. My patchwork header design idea  came from reading through the bamboozle beauty blog itself and spying Jemma's duvet cover, using a similar patchwork design adds that personal touch she way after.

what i did ♥
created numerous header concepts, sourced and edited a selection of backgrounds to choose from, simplified usability by removing unneeded buttons, links and other widgets cluttering the page, reduced 2 columns into 1 going by the same process of simplifying the blog, transferred full blog design to bamboozle beauty blog admin and ensured full ease of use for Jemma.
