This Complicated Life is an anonymous blog-site where the site owner wanted the site to be more than a blog so therefore designed using a paid for template rather than a free WordPress one. The ‘more than a blog’ came into play with the decision to use blog categories for individual pages so the author could write an introduction on each page.
We created a logo using a simple palette of grey text and pastel colours. We decided to not have a traditional menu and instead create graphics which leads the user to the different pages available. Each category/page has its own colour – this is reflected in the title bar on the page and the graphic used as a menu item.
As many of the featured images are memes we chose to not have excerpts of text or meta data breaking up the images. Just click throughs from the images, which are made obvious by the coloured rollover with icons and links to the posts.
