Redesigned: Sterling Style


I’ve been a little MIA from this blog recently, but haven’t been resting on my laurels! I just finished up the branding/site redesign for fashion blogger, Taylor Sterling of Sterling Style. She originally was just looking for someone to help her left justify her blog, but then we ended up rebranding a bit. I’m incredibly happy with how it turned out! I used a minimal color scheme, kept things pretty close to her original design & tweaked a few things to make it look a bit more consistent. And. . . what branding would be complete without a little Melissa calligraphy in there? I went for a mono-line stroke with the lettering on her blog & I think that does a great job of keeping things clean.

Head over there & check it out!

Every once in a while I have bloggers emailing me to redesign their graphics/branding & most of the time I’m completely swamped with other stuff. Seriously, could I add a few more hours to the day? It was really fun to be able to work with Taylor on her site. Go check out Sterling Style for some sweet fashion.

      Melissa, you’ve literally read my mind! I’ve been planning on making the switch from Blogger to WordPress through ProPhoto Blogs, but since I haven’t transitioned yet, I’m not sure which of these options would best for me. I know you work with ProPhoto, and I’d love your feedback.

    2. Melissa, you did such a GREAT job! I am wishing I hired you when I just redid my Blog. I still want to hire you for a custom art piece. You’re so talented. Can’t wait to meet you in SLC!

    3. I am going to seriously ponder this offer! I know it’s a great one, and I could definitely use some branding help/insight. xo

      Melissa- You are awesome. If I couldn’t do it myself, I’d hire you in a heart beat to design for me.

      I hardly ever comment, but you’re awesome and I wish I were in UT so I could take one of your calligraphy classes. Just FYI :)

      I never comment, but I’ll come out of the blogging woodwork just to tell you that you are awesome. I’d hire you in a minute if I couldn’t do my own designs. I wish I was in UT so I could take your calligraphy class!

      uh, I don’t know why it posted twice….

    7. Hi Melissa … I’m new here. You made a great work with it.

    8. Hello,

      I’m sure I could send this privately, but I have no shame in my game. I’d love to take advantage of one of these great packages and am curious about 2 things. First, do you offer payment plans? Second, if I buy in to the lowest package and later decide to add other services, can pricing be adjusted to fit that option? Thanks! Your work is beautiful!

      i don’t offer payment plans, but if you buy one of the smaller packages & decide to upgrade later, i’d be more than happy to honor the prices you see here.

      hi! I had some questions about this offer but wasn’t sure how to email you. would you shoot me an email so I could respond asap? I am very interested in this offer but new to blogging so I have some (possibly silly, sorry) questions.

      HI Melissa!

      I have loved your talented updates/tweaks on Sterling Style’s blog site. Your work is beautiful!
      I am looking into transferring my main blog site to wordpress from tumblr and recreating the branding/graphics. I would love to see if you are available to work with me on this project? They both need a facelift as well! But first things first, would love to see if you have the time to help with The Everyday Darling site? I would love to make it more my own logo-wise, larger picture space(size of sterling’s pics)and add availability for ad space, etc.
      I look forward to hearing from you!
      Thanks Melissa!
