    Blogspot template for http://mortizjacinto.blogspot.com.es
00. The briefing:
I was asked to design and code a Blogspot template for the personal blog of Mai Belda (Word Hunter). The challenge was the very personal nature of the blog. The guidelines were quite vague:
"It's like laying on the bed in a summer dress to read a book".
"it's like dipping your fingers in a jar of Nutella".
I did venture into it anyway, because I had known the author for a while and knew I could figure what she would feel identified with. It had to be tender, chaotic, dreamy and excited but also kind. The content revolves mostly around books so it would certainly have to speak about how books transport the reader. It had to be full of posibility but at the same time feel small and personal.
I made a few sketches which I didn't love, but I inmediately switched to this:
Although I usually make a very clean and minimalistic design full of vector elements, and certainly this design has some elements kile those, truth is this texture play and warm tone is something that worked pretty well in an intuitive way and I enjoyed making, and would be willing to do again.
Thank you!
