We love custom clients who come to us with a clear vision of what they want. Rebecca Perez, from Love Your Day Designs, is one such client and we are excited to have her share with you a little more about herself and how we were able to help turn her blog vision into reality.
How long have you been blogging?
I started the blog Love Your Day in October of 2012 & officially debuted my website Love Your Day Designs (which is actually a blog platform) in April 2013.
What made you decide to start a blog?
I had just started an event design business, Love Your Day Designs, & wanted to be able to share the pictures of my projects & inspirations behind the designs. I also love to teach & motivate people so I needed a place to post helpful tools & ideas for brides & party hosts, as well as uplifting content for all my readers.
A separate website was started as a formal place to display my business information, services, product pictures, etc. It was very important to me that my design business have a well designed site!
What has been the biggest unexpected perk or bonus of your site and being online?
Looking at the statistics under “views by country” surprises me every time. It’s really cool to see a list of all the different places around the world that have looked at my websites. That’s the beauty of having a presence online, you can be seen across the globe!
Tell us about the design makeover process? How did you choose the colors, fonts and ideas that inspire your personal brand?
I originally hired Designer Blogs to do ALL my business branding – logo, Facebook cover & profile picture, Twitter background, Etsy banner & avatar (shop not open yet), watermark, & the blog’s header title. Working with Monica was such a wonderful experience that I decided to come back & purchase a full website design. Her advice to use a WordPress blog platform that looked & functioned like a regular website was a brilliant recommendation, & I couldn’t be happier with the outcome!
My color search began on one of my favorite websites, The Perfect Palette. Here is the palette I chose that started my design journey…
When ordering a logo design from Designer Blogs, usually the process goes like this: they come up with 3 different designs from which you choose & then go from there. However, I knew exactly what I wanted before the process began so I sent Monica sketches & practically wrote a novel explaining my ideas. I will admit, I was that girl – the total control freak 😉 But I think it’s important to love your branding 100% when you are a business owner because it is what represents you! Monica was the perfect designer-client pairing, we worked very well together.
Here are a few of my original draft ideas & how the final branding & website turned out thanks to Monica’s awesomeness…
Flower: I knew I wanted the logo shape to be circular & so this flower was born!
Logo:I got a little carried away with the loopiness of the “L” at first 😉 And once Monica showed me that pretty lower case font, I was in love & never looked back.
Fb Cover & Pic: My favorite part of the final is the faint gray petals Monica added!
How did you find / hear about Designer Blogs?
Google! I did a lot of research trying to find a talented design company that also wouldn’t completely empty my bank account. When I came across Designer Blogs, I knew immediately that I would get amazing results.
Anything else you want people to know about you or your blog?
I’d like to thank Designer Blogs for absolutely everything, as my entire business identity is a reflection of their incredibly gifted design team! Also, here are the explanations behind two of my main blog categories. I hope that you will check it out & enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing & sharing 🙂
The Little Things: Love your day is referring to loving every detail, feeling & aspect of your special celebration, whether it’s your wedding day, birthday, baby shower, etc. But it doesn’t have to end with these occasional events. It is my personal philosophy to love EVERY day by paying attention to & celebrating “the little things” in life. So here is a glimpse into my every day, & all those little things that inspire me to do what I love.
Love Your Monday: Mondays are infamous for being the least loved day of the week so it is my goal to help start the week off with happy inspiration & motivation. Let’s break the bad rap that Monday has been given…here’s to loving our Mondays!
Thanks so much Rebecca! It was a pleasure working with you!
