The quilting-blog world is all aflutter with talk of a new eZine launching today.
And while I’m pretty stoked to see what this group of creative minds come up with, I’m maybe even more excited to be seeing their logo and graphics all over the blogisphere. Why is that you ask? Because I designed them! Yep. Their site, blog and graphics were designed by none other than yours truly.
It occurs to me that I haven’t spent much time lately showing off any of the work I’ve done when I’m not here and I thought you might like to see. So, in addition to Fat Quarterly I’d like to introduce some of the blogs I’ve designed lately:
and my personal sites:
In addition to blogs, I also design traditional websites. More and more my clients are opting to design and host their sites on content management systems (often referred to as CMS) like WordPress and Squarespace and even Blogger and Typepad. Individuals and small business owners are discovering the benefits of using these systems for their entire sites because of a few main advantages: cost, flexibility and speed. This is where I come in.
If you want to find out more or see more examples, please visit me at: patchwo4k Folio and feel free to contact me with any questions.
And if you have a few minutes, stop by some of the blogs above and say ‘hi’ – tell them Amy sent you!
I’ve started a blog in conjunction with my blog-and web-design business. My plan is to share tips and techniques for enhancing your blog no matter what platform you’re on. The first post is titled: Pimp my Blogger. Come on over and subscribe if your so inclined. I’d love to see you.
I’m interested, what would you like to see explained there?
If you read any blogs written by someone who quilts, chances are you’ve come across the Blogger’s Quilt Festival at Parkcitygirl.
The festival is the brainchild of Amy (whom I’m happy to call a friend) and was lots of fun last spring when she first held it. Amy asked me to design a logo and offered me a sponsor spot in return. Needing, as I do, a deadline to work off, I jumped at the chance to to the job and used her date as the ‘launch day’ for my new venture. All the sponsors are offering prizes and here are the details on mine:
To celebrate the launch of patchwo4k Folio, I am offering a complete blog make over to include a custom header, 5 sidebar title buttons, custom background, coordinated fonts and colors, custom favicon and ‘email me’ button. I will work with your current platform (i.e. Blogger, Typepad, WordPress or other) and restrictions may apply depending upon your plan level and options available with your service. If you don’t have a blog but wish to enter the drawing I will get you set up on Blogger’s free platform and include all of the above. In order to enter, all you have to do is click the graphic above and enter your name at Amy’s site.
Lest we not forget the concept behind the festival—my entry for this round:
The Roundabout Quilt. I really didn’t have much choice—I love this quilt.
