The past few weeks I've been collaborating with Tracy at A Slice of Smith Life on her blog redesign. Her original header was one of my first attempts at designing a header/banner.
Then Tracy contacted me requesting a new design, and I couldn't have been happier. Secretly I had already been hunting for just the right look for her. Since getting to know Tracy through her blog and co-hosting NOBH together, I now felt more adept at knowing what would please her.
I was even more pleased with how Tracy's button turned out. And that she has it as her Facebook profile picture confirms how pleased she is with the work I did for her. That is the bonus for me.
In the end pleasing a client is what makes my work successful. I really want to understand what they like, don't like, their desires, and their needs. Everyone's blog is a personal space that should fill them with joy every time they see it. To know they are sharing themselves with the world from a platform they are proud of and shows their personality.
