In the spirit of my new service Website Makeover Kit, I thought it’d be fun to take a trip down memory lane of my own website. So it turns out I pretty much change my site yearly, but in my opinion each time there has been a clear progress each time and also the purpose has changed. With each evolution I’ve changed my ‘logo’ and website design, generally the colours have remained the same for a few years now! I also find it funny how my blog was so random and much more personal than it is now.
2010 – 2011
Honestly I’m not quite sure what I was thinking slicing up my logo like this, but as you can see it did set the colour palette for my current logo. The colour palette of the site as a whole does looks very dull now though!
late 2013 – early 2014
I finally took the time to properly think about my logo, branding and site design. It also started to evolve from being a portfolio site to having a focus of my freelance services. I created a completely custom theme for this one.
If you want to take a peek back at your website or maybe even someone else’s like your business idol or a big brand, try The Wayback Machine – it can be really interesting!
What do you think you will be changing on your site this year?
