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!
