WELCOME TO THE NEW BLOG!!!!!!!!!!
(Can you tell we are excited?!)
We’ve been working for months on this new designs with our wonderful friends at Colorz (the best people ever, amazing pros, amazing humans – we’ve been working together for years and they never ever disappoint me) and we’ve been holding our breath to present it to you like it’s our new baby!!!
I wanted to take some time to talk to you about the changes you are seeing here and of course, if you have any questions or any issues, please let us know!
Bigger, bolder images. My love for full blown images is not new, I even remember the day I updated this blog to be able to have big horizontal images, how new it was and how I got a few funny reactions about it.
I love it, and I wanted to take it a step further to allow the navigation to stay as exciting from the top to the bottom of the blog. We totally removed the sidebar, but you can find all the elements of navigation along the blog.
Of course, we kept the chronological navigation as it is. To me it’s what a blog supposed to be, a flow of posts that’s easy to follow, like a diary.
To me, the blog is about telling stories, be it of style, of beauty or lifestyle – and I was starting to feel the urge to be able to present our posts in a way that would be more flattering for our images and storytelling. I’ve always been a lover of magazines and beautiful layouts, and if there is one thing that I can find frustrating with inline publishing, it’s the fact that it’s so complicated to play with it.
We’ve come up with a few great ideas and changes, you’ll be able to see that very soon and I really really hope you like it.
The new site is optimized for your phones, your iPad, your tablet, EVERYTHING! This is really cool because I know I look at the blog a lot from my phone and I’m always pinching all over my screen to see everything that is happening. No more pinching! It’s still just as easy to find everything and 100x easier to read!
I wanted to make a menu that was simple, but still showed you all of our latest content. You’ll see that our categories have stayed the same, it’s just a bit easier to navigate!
Finally, you can really meet the team! The new contributors page gives you a look at the people who make up the Studio and what they do. We are going to be featuring more of our contributors on this page, so keep checking back. Also, you can now click on the name at the end of a post to see more all the posts written by them.
Our minis posts are fast and fun, and they are what we are really talking about at the Studio. Now you’ll see them as part of a new grouping, you can scroll across to see the latest and also click through to see everything.
