In Jag Lever

Welcome joy.

Without further adieu, Jag Lever has a completely new look! I have really enjoyed the fancy shmancy layout I’ve had for the past few years, but to be honest I missed the good ol’ single column, simple and clean blog days. I wanted to breakdown the layout designing process for you guys, it was a really fun thing that I loved doing!

Step 1: It started out with a swash, how did it end up like this?

I literally opened Procreate on my new iPad pro and grabbed a paintbrush and accidentally made this one, really pretty brush stroke. It sparked an entire idea that this would be a part of my new header!

Step 2: And then, the font was decided.

I have always loved a good script font for all of my headers, so that part was a no-brainer. It took me a few days to finally settle on this one after purchasing a few commercial fonts. This one was just the vibe!

Step 3: Drop shadow and rose.

I knew that I definitely had to incorporate a rose element into this theme, but didn’t want to go overboard or have too much of a dark vibe. So with the font and the drop shadow text I think it came together nicely in a more clean and professional way!

 

Step 4: Lay it all out.

I then popped everything into a table on photoshop and started playing with how I wanted my post titles to look, etc. I was soooo thrilled when I finished this part!

 

I miss when the content spoke for itself. I tried to make something nice and easily accessible for you guys with the help of Shari from Little Blue Deer and my trusty new iPad pro! Which I actually drew the graphics myself on. Pretty proud of that! It still feels like me, but it’s a lot more simplified.

A nice way to spring clean, if you will! What do you guys think?! Let me know in the comments.
