I don’t usually intermingle my web/blog design business with my personal blog, just because the two have nothing to do with each other. However, my design business has been my primary form of work for a few months since we began wrapping things up in Korea and moving here to New Zealand. Also, I’ve noticed I have quite a few new readers, so maybe it’s time to introduce my business again?
So here’s a brief introduction: I started The Suitcase Designs the beginning of last year as a fun hobby and as a creative outlet. Throughout the year my business has grown and I’ve incorporated WordPress.org, WordPress.com, and Blogger designs, transfers, referral programs, and finally premades into my business plan. I’ve had an absolute blast getting to know my clients and working with them to create a design they absolutely love.
Obviously as time goes on my personal tastes and preferences change, so I’ve given The Suitcase Designs a fresh new look, one that’s cleaner, more girly, and hopefully easier to navigate than the last one. I loved adding a feminine touch to my design site as this travel blog is more about Derik and I. I don’t think he’d be into the pink color scheme as I would be!
The design is still a work in progress as I have a few more pages to add, adding a better layout to the design blog , and a few other misc. things. Overall I’m super excited about how it looks, but I’m even MORE excited about what I’ve released with this new site design.
If you check out my Premades page you’ll see six entirely new premade designs. They’re all part of (what I’m lovingly calling) my Summer Collection, and all designs I developed from previous clients’ feedback as to what they wanted in a design: simple, subtle colors, light, classy. All designs are offered on WordPress ($60)and Blogger ($40), the WordPress designs being fully responsive (meaning they’ve been customized to look awesome on all your mobile devices), and I’ve also customized the Blogger Mobile layouts to match their full theme design.
Right now I only have the live view on WordPress, but Blogger will be coming soon. You can still order both WP and Blogger premade designs as of today, I just won’t have the live view of Blogger up for a bit; I didn’t think it was necessary since they are exact replicas.
If you don’t have time to go to The Suitcase Designs to see the new premades, here’s a few of the designs for you to check out now!
All designs can be customized (colors, fonts, images) for a minimal fee. Feel free to send me an email for a price quote!
