With starting a new job this year and having a new attitude and outlook for my blog, I was ready for a redesign. As much as I loved the old look, I was ready for a more simple and sophisticated design.
So, of course, I went back to Lori from Imagination Designs because I knew from the last time that she is seriously amazing, works hard to make sure that you get exactly what you want, checks in with you every step of the way, and has incredibly reasonable prices.
We started off with a couple of design ideas I've seen that I liked, a color scheme (sticking close to the old), and Lori took off and created incredible looks for me. It's always so fun working with her because she never minds me giving my input, she's talented, and makes absolutely sure I love it including making slight adjustments so I can see and decide which look I like the best every step of the way.
I absolutely recommend working with Lori if you're thinking about a new look for your own website of any kind! She's fantastic.
