The Perspective Blog

The site you're currently viewing was designed by yours truly (now :). When I decided to begin designing websites, I thought what better way to get started than to create my own. I knew I wanted something straightforward and elegant in it's own way - simple to navigate but not completely dull. I started playing around with ideas in Illustrator and designed the logo, and then found little details to tie it all together. I chose a basic color scheme of blues, greys, and greens to add areas of interest and to evoke a calm and laid back mood for the site.

This website is different than the other two examples with one main reason being that this site uses a blog format. It can be added to almost any site I create and is extremely user friendly. It is easy on the eyes and does not feel chaotic or distracting. I love that the blog can be dressed up with buttons and images or anything you may need.

My goal for the site was to create a place that used content and layout to reduce stress - seamlessly floating from one click to the next. Take a look around and make yourself at home.
