We were ecstatic to have the opportunity to work with Cindy of Chew Chew Mama on her custom blog design. As a dietetics/nutrition graduate, I (aka: Erin) have a special place in my heart for healthy eating blogs and love to see orders come in for them. Cindy is a clinically trained speech language pathologist and a feeding therapist. Her blog and services help people gain the tools and knowledge necessary to help children learn how to make healthy food choices and to actually become happy eaters. Pretty cool, huh? Cindy worked with Emily and Kate on her project. Emily created the logo and mood board and then the project was turned over to Kate who completed the full blog design. Here’s a look at how it turned out:

Kate’s take on the project:
Cindy’s project had a challenging beginning because it was started by another designer. It can sometimes be difficult to take over a project in the middle of the design process, but after discussing the details of the design with Cindy, I knew everything would be fine because she had a very clear vision of what she wanted. Cindy is an amazing person and has a passion for what she does. She had a very clear vision about every aspect of her design but was also very open to my ideas. Together we were able to create a beautiful and unique design. Bold and bright colors were used in the design to create an eye-catching design, but I feel the colors used are also reflective of Cindy’s fun and vibrant personality. The Chew Chew Mama brand is all about helping kids learn how to be healthy eaters. It shows that healthy, colorful eating can be just as fun as Cindy’s design was for me to create.

Cindy’s take on the project:
Kate is an absolute sweet heart! I have loved every minute of working with Kate, in fact, it was the best thing that could have ever happened for me. Initially, I thought that communicating might be a problem since she is not located in the United States, but that was hardly the case. Kate is an awesome communicator and the time difference actually worked in my favor. It allowed me to answer fast questions by day and review things and send more detailed feedback at night. As I went to bed, she was getting up to my feedback and hours later, I was waking up to change on the test site each day. It was AWESOME. Kate is an incredibly, talented and creative designer. She was able to somehow transform my written ideas into a design that captured everything I envisioned and much more.
I know that I can be a bit Type A in personality and that I really requested a lot of detail on my site. It was important to me that my custom website be perfect, since it was launching my new business. Kate never, ever made me feel like I was asking too much (or driving her crazy!) :). She always took my requests and ran with them. She communicated what would work and always offered positive, alternative solutions when something didn’t. Kate is an incredibly kind person and a really hard worker. Designer Blogs is so lucky to have Kate! She is a dream designer — because of her talent and her kindness! Kate made me love my website more than any other website in existence. I am so very thankful that we got paired!
