30 Minute Redesign #76: Suruha Freespirit

Welcome to the new and improved 30 Minute Redesign series! This 76th redesign in the series is the first to be featured at Blogs.FanExtra. We’ve migrated the entire series from our sister blog PSD.FanExtra as we felt that it would be a better fit for our blog readers here. You can still browse our archive of past redesigns here.

Today I’m going to be redesigning Suruha Freespirit, the personal design blog of Su Hall, one of our most active readers. I’ve spoken with Su a lot in the past year, so it’s a real honor to get a chance to redesign her blog. I hope you like it Su! :)

The Original Design:

You can see the original site design below:

First Impressions: Strengths

Every site has some merits, and the good impressions I made here are these:

The Header Shows Personality and is Unique to Su

The header is a little busy and disorganized for my taste, but very importantly it does show the personality of the blogger. The collage of images seems to be a collection of visuals personal to Su, and this is great for helping her blog stand out from those with more generic designs. As the first thing the viewer sees it instantly portrays aspects of her personality, a perfect example of how a picture is worth a thousand words.
