I’ve had the pleasure of working with an amazing young woman for her site design lately. Her name is Riana Lago, and she blogs over at AbsolutelySavvy.me. When her mom approached me earlier this month to design her site, I was blown over by her age (she’s only 13!) and how refreshingly ambitious and talented this girl is.
Her mom showed me a magazine that she designed for her birthday, and I must say she’s a natural! Her style is very funky but girly, as befits a girl her age. See her work below:
To give her a consistent brand message, I designed her site to match the magazine layout she made.
This is based on the Metro theme from Studiopress, which is a fantastic child theme that’s fully mobile-responsive and has a magazine layout for the homepage. The color scheme, fonts, and widget titles all coordinate with the design that Riana did for her own magazine.
