30 Minute Redesign #91: Harrison Amy

30 Minute Redesign #91: Harrison Amy

Today I’m going to be redesigning Harrison Amy, a blog teaching professional copyrighting skills. Amy’s a bit of a blogging buddy of mine, so it’s great to get this chance to work with her design.

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:

Great Header, Great Brand

Whilst there are some issues with Amy’s site header (which I’ll get to later) it’s generally a real feature point for her blog.

The use of her mascot is an image that has become synonymous with her online brand helps her set her apart from many competing blogs in her niche. Similarly as her name has become more well known within her niche, using it in bold letters in the header as part of her logo area works really well for establishing her personal brand.

The band of bold red for the header background is eye catching and immediately grabs our attention.

Overall a very solid header design.

    Thanks so much for doing this – I love the new look and it’s prompted me to schedule in a website redesign this year… know anyone who could do it?

    Your points are bang on, I’m tired of the 3 columns, it interested me a couple of years ago but I’d rather people could see more content, and also delve into past content.

    Thanks so much for featuring the site!

      You’re really welcome Amy! I’ll email you shortly with the .psd file for the design. That’s great to hear about your upcoming redesign too, I’d love to get involved potentially.
