If you are a regular to my blog, you may have noticed that she is looking a little fresher these days! I have been wanting to give Jaki Jellz a makeover for some time now, but time and my inabilty to make a decision has prevented me from doing so!
When you spend a lot of time working on blog posts and various other bits and pieces, obviously you find yourself looking at your home page rather frequently! Whilst I had a lot of love for my old logo, I was getting tired. I loved it because it was my first design when I went self hosted last year. I loved it because it has been with me throughout the growth that this blog has had and I loved it because it was almost my identity.
I was a little nervous about the change. I was worried that I might no longer be recognised and that it may have a negative impact. But I soon realised that it’s not the logo that really matters but the name. I feel that this new logo is very clean, very fresh and very modern and I think it was the right time to take the jump.
My new Jaki Jellz logo was born at around 3am one morning when I couldn’t sleep. Tweaking around with Canva, it didn’t take me long to come up with it and before I knew it I had generated Twitter Headers and Facebook Cover Photos to match. Hours later and some faffing with my theme and a few tweaks to the layout and the makeover was complete. It’s a shame that was followed by a morning of server issues, but we can’t have it all can we?!
I’m so pleased I took a leap of faith because I am beyond happy with the result and have only had nothing but positive feedback. I shall miss the old Playlist Script font, but we had a good innings! It served me well.
I hope you enjoy the new design of my blog. I would love to hear what you think in the comments below.
