Welcome to the New Look

Tova Raykin, web designer extraordinaire, has done it again.  It’s been almost a year since I got the initial vintage postcard idea, and seeing the site evolve into what it is with Tova’s help has been an exciting process.

My old look was just a regular old wordpress.com template with no individuality or character – and I feel like my background image was pretty distracting.  There was no motion, and no compelling composition.  Now, I’ve got a personalized theme that really fits me well.

The header image is the same, but is transformed to something more appealing with Tova’s touch.  The home page displays each post as a postcard, with the stamp reflecting the main category that it is posted in.  Each stamp is color-coded to match the dropdown menu reflecting that category.  Once you’ve gone further into a post, the postcard becomes more of a letter style.  When searching, posts are listed as though written on a blackboard.  I’ve re-written my about page, contacting me is easier, and advertising space is now available.

What I love most about working with Tova is that she really listens to what you want, builds what you need in an organized manner, and puts a really creative and well composed touch to your ideas to make them appealing.
