This space is not for the best blog layouts, but the ones that have really stood out to me during my blogging time. Many people ask me about my layout and for me it is one of the most fun aspects of blogging, I have never studied web design but I have always practised it and even did it as work experience whilst at school, this lead to studying photography at college and now media at University, they all connect in their own way. There are some obvious candidates that we can all think of, I want to include the obvious and the less obvious. Layouts that really impress me are the simple ones with no advertisements, I believe advertisements can really ruin a layout and when choosing bloggers for this post I really kept that in mind.
|Shini from Park&Cube has to be the master of all graphics design and fashion blogs, an influence to us all… Her blog is known for the amazing photography and organisation. It shows how she takes pride in the appearance and layout. I love black & white layouts and you can’t get better than this one.|
|Lilly from LLYMLRS is another obvious contender, her layout is always perfect. Clean and unique an her posts are always so well layered out. Lilly does include advertisements but very tastefully and I applaud how she hasn’t let her advertisements ruin the look/|
|Flattery is a blog that I always remember and it is always immaculate, I spoke with Breane and she told me that the inspiration was from a random photograph she saw on the website. She loves how delicate and pretty paper cranes are, so she decided to add some in to the photo as well as some watercolour techniques because she says watercolour is her art style :) She did this all using a tablet, illustrator and Photoshop.|
|Carrie is the 19 year old behind the majorly sucessful WishWishWish.net. She says “i’ve been creating “websites” for myself since I was about 13 years old. It’s something i’ve always loved, having my own little piece of the internet.” She uses photoshop to edit her pictures. However her blog theme was designed by: http://www.estudiocabron.com.ar/|
|Shari is a 21 year old Management student from the Philippines, It was her blog that actually inspired me to do this post and research some other great simple layouts that I envy. Shari’s is another clean monochrome layout and I love nothing more than black & white layout with a flash over colour that is consistent throughout the blog.|
|Liss’s new blog design, was created by blogger That Unreliable Girl, and her sister created the banner. |
|Jess from Canada’s layout is my favourite of them all.. I have always loved visiting the cleanness and simpleness and based around typography with some fantastic fonts.|
