I hope you are well?
You may have noticed something a little different here in Beauty In Beta, I’ve had a makeover! I’d been feeling a bit sad about my layout, not sure what I wanted from it, then I came across the amazingly talented Carly Watts. I immediately fell in love with her design work and illustrations and knew that it was exactly what I had been looking for. I looked through her whole portfolio and everything I saw just got better and better.
So about 10 minutes after finding her site, I emailed her and commissioned her to design me a new header, buttons, YouTube channel art and a portrait and I’m so so happy I did. To do the portrait, she asked for a few photos of me, asked me a couple of questions like colours I liked, what I’d like in the picture (obviously had to have my cat Gizmo). She sent over a first draft quickly, which I loved, and then she sent over this portrait, which I am even more in love with. Look how cute Gizmo looks, I can’t deal with it!
Then onto the site! She asked me a few of my interests which I listed and she must have done some of her own research because she came back with things I hadn’t even thought of from my blog. She then gave me a couple of different blog buttons to use, and a lush new signature.
I am so thankful I found Carly as I genuinely couldn’t be happier with the quality, value for money, quick turnaround and how bloomin’ lovely she is!
So, please do go and check out her site, which you can find here – Carly Watts or follow her on twitter @carlywattsart
