Here’s a project that was so refreshing in its minimalism and lack of froufrou! This is a “Blissful Blog”, the result of a collaboration between me and Martine de Luna. The client finished Martine’s blog branding programme, and wanted a modern, minimalist design that would let her amazing food photography stand out. I worked closely with Martine on this one, who really knew what her client needed in terms of design and functions. She made my job so easy!
She already had a logo designed by someone else, so it was very easy to get the theme to match the branding. Lots of white space and huge photo sizes make sure that her content takes center stage. The overall look is clean, modern, and well-organized.
A custom, fully-widgetized homepage with featured posts in a clean grid.
The blog page with large, square featured images and a clutter-free sidebar.
The recipe index.
The custom theme is built on the Genesis Framework, naturally. It is completely mobile responsive and loads fast too.
What do you think?
I loved the respite from working on ultra feminine sites for a change!
Do check out Marcos Dinners. She has an amazing following on Instagram because of her gorgeous food photos. I don’t know how she maintains a slim figure in spite of all the yummy dishes she creates. Life is so unfair. hahaha!
