A Finely-Tuned Design for Harpblog

October 18, 2012

In the world of music, Camac Harps is known for being the sole manufacturer of concert harps in France. They use their Typepad blog to share business news, on-the-go updates from director Jakez François, information about competitions and pretty much everything else you can imagine that's related to harps, harpists and harp enthusiasts.

Camac needed a new blog design that's modern, professional, and easy to use. They contacted us with an idea of what they were looking for and provided an updated logo to use in the design. Using their requests as a starting point, we created a new design that offers more space for post content, a streamlined sidebar, and improved navigation links. Check out the before and after below.

Ravi Pratap Singh's updated blog design leaves an imprint

September 26, 2012

Ravi Pratap Singh

Ravi contacted us because he wanted to give his blog an updated look but wasn't sure where to start. After a brief discussion, we recommended our Advanced Design Consultation Service, a package that's best suited for established blogs that need some expert design assistance.

We asked Ravi some questions about his vision for his blog and then made our own recommendations, based on our design knowledge and experience with blogging best practices. Working with Ravi, we created a new banner using artwork that he provided and text from a poem he wrote himself. We then implemented our suggested changes on his blog and made sure everything looked great.

The result is a fresh, new look that reflects the spirit of the writer and provides easy navigation for his readers. Ravi expressed his satisfaction with our work together - "Just checked the blog... it looks AWESOME!!! Thanks a ton!... I am really happy with your work and genuinely appreciate your patience with all my queries and feedback. I know I can be a 'finicky' customer."

Do you want to put a little pep in your blog's design but you're not sure where to start? We offer consultations and design updates for all types of blogs and bloggers. Check out the Design Consultation details today and let us know what we can do to help!

Ruth loves Typepad for her blog and when she decided to create a portfolio site to showcase her photography, she wanted to host it on Typepad too. She knew what type of layout she wanted but she wasn't sure how to achieve this by herself so she reached out to the Typepad blog services team. She gave us a mock-up and provided the images to be used in the design; we pulled it all together. The new Mi Molinete site we created for her has a clean and elegant look with splashes of color that puts her photos front and center. Ruth was thrilled to see her vision become a reality, and so are we.

Rangers Tribune's Sporty New Design

August 29, 2012

Et-rtrib

Nick runs a popular sports blog, called Rangers Tribune, about his local professional hockey team. He wanted to make the front page look more like a news website than a standard blog and to revamp the overall design. He contacted Typepad blog services and requested a custom design service.

Nick provided the images he wanted to use and our team set up the layout and created the new design. The new front page has a featured post with a large image and a grid of recent posts, each highlighted with a thumbnail image from the post (the screenshot above only gives a taste so click through to view the whole design on the blog). It's a great way to draw attention to posts and a good example of what can be done on Typepad using Advanced Templates. Nick is thrilled with the results and so are we.

Looking for something fancy for your blog, perhaps a non-standard layout? We can help you with that. Sign up today! And be sure to check out Rangers Tribune, especially if you're a pro hockey fan.

June 06, 2012

Et-echelon

Do you have a website that has branding or a look and feel you want to use on Typepad, but the layout doesn't really work for a blog? Brennan of Echelon, an energy company, found himself in this situation. The Echelon team weren't sure how they could adapt their company's website design to their blog so Brennan contacted Typepad blog services. We worked together with Brennan and Echelon to create a new design for their blog, Smart Energy, that incorporated Echelon's branding and some of the look and feel from the website but in a layout that works great for a blog. They were very pleased with the results.

Whether you need us to implement an existing design, create a new design, or (like Echelon) set up something in between, Typepad blog services has you covered! Sign up today. And be sure to check out Smart Energy while you're at it.
