From the portfolio of MommyDoodlesDesign.com:
"design is my life." Melanie, of MommyDoodlesDesign.com, began her full time career as a designer in 1997. "I have developed an understanding of what it takes to get optimum results, not just on the computer screen, but in the finished product. That comes from working day in and day out on printing and prepress projects plus the experience working on powerful computer workstations using the best available software."
Q: What do you like best about creating blog designs?
Design is something I love and it comes naturally to me. I like how excited by clients get seeing their vision in "real life"!
Another example of a blog design created by MommyDoodlesDesign.com:
"I had a lot of fun working with Emi at The Cloth Diaper Report. This navigation bar was a challenge, it incorporates a graphic image along the top, also many topics /subtopics and graphic button links!"
Melanie's advice to someone who is considering a blog makeover? "Take your time when choosing a new design."
Win a Header Design (any size) and a 125 x 125 Button Graphic. One vector download from istockphoto.com for use only on the header and button design. Any website or blog format as installation is not included. This prize is a $68 value.
