Today’s task was to brand my blog. As a trained animator and designer, I’ve realised I’ve been doing this all along. After all, it’s the creative processes that I enjoy the most, the parts that get the most attention.
My key point for when you are designing your own blog is to follow one key rule:
Keep it simple.
Much like an auteur for film, we have to develop our own style, use the same title credit fonts and maintain our own creative voice throughout our work. It’s this style that makes us recognisable and let people know what to expect. Your blog has to coincide with people’s interests and keep them captured in your content net.
Although today I feel I have learned nothing new, I am looking forward to what information and tasks WordPress has to offer tomorrow.
