There is nothing better than a web designer that you can trust. Someone who really listens to the things you want and is willing to work with you to make things just how you want them. This is why I am so please to have worked with Christina from Spilled Milkshake Designs on my new blog design.
As many of you know, on a couple of weeks ago the new and improved look of iab was unveiled. My old blog design was only about a year old, but I couldn’t keep it any longer. While I liked it, the design was never “me”. It was like a really great outfit that I never felt comfortable in. For this reason, I asked Christina to help me out with a whole new design.
This time around the whole design process felt so different. I still provided her with images, backgrounds and such that I liked, but the things she came up with were so much more “me”. She sent me several different screenshots of background/graphic combinations and they were great. She was so patient with me because I kept sending her background and graphic links, enough to easily overwhelm a person. Christina took it all in stride though, and I’m so glad she did! It was my last search that lead me to my current background, that I am SO in love with. We knew we loved the flower in the header, but it was paired with a different background. The background looked awesome, but this one was perfect.
When she sent over my current header with the background we both knew she had stuck gold. After that things just started to fall into place. Christina was so good about giving me her objective opinion, which I needed because I always second guess myself. If she didn’t like something I wanted her to try, she was honest and I couldn’t appreciate that more!
On top of everything else Christina was fast and efficient, which made things go so smoothly! Plus, she uploaded all of my social media icons, different size buttons, etc. into my media library, which was awesome and something that didn’t happen the last time around. It just makes it easier that I now have everything at my fingertips.
I can’t speak highly enough about the job Christina did. I didn’t like the placement of my signature, but she was having a hard time figuring out how to move it thanks to one of my plugins. That didn’t stop her though! She worked diligently and within a day she had it figured out and in the place I wanted it! Her determination to make sure I was happy was really impressive.
I could sit here and gush for hours about how wonderful Christina is, but here’s the bottom line. If you are looking for a blog design…HIRE HER. Not only her work awesome, but her prices are unbelievable. Do a search, you won’t find anyone with a better price than hers and take a look around, you can see she does quality work.
