Mmm, that was just idiotic. As you've likely guessed, the branding I'm talking about doesn't involve a branding iron and a heat source, it's the marketing type of branding. My wife, Laura, wanted to update her web presence so she contacted the Soule Designs nerve center and the process was underway.
Initially we were going to just use a WordPress theme, but to me the available WordPress themes are a little like buying an oil painting at the starving artist sale at the Holiday Inn. Sure you'll get a piece of art, but it's not going to be what you really want or match your aesthetic style.
Here was her previous website which was nice but had gotten a bit outdated as web design trends seem to swing every year or two:
|Laura's old site from 2010|
|Shell star and red flower demand web presence!|
Based on all those criteria I came up with the below design:
|That's great, but when is $5 margarita night??|
|The flower is barely visible in the footer, opting to focus on the star shell motif throughout the site|
Now that her site is out I can go back to filling in my spare time with ZBrush and finally finishing up that Cthulhu sculpture I stared in October!
