Blog Design: Phantasmic Reads + Giveaway!

Hello lovelies, I'm here to announce a new blog design created by me! It's a super special project, as it is my very first official FULL blog design kicking off my designing carrier. 

The blog design (note: it's not a re-design, as my client only just started her - hopefully long and successful - blogging carrier!) was for Reanna from Phantasmic Reads, who proved to be an absolute delight to work with. She had a very good idea what she wanted her blog to look like and we were able to brainstorm some great options and work out all the details quickly! Most of all, I had so much fun designing all the witchy vectors and putting the layout together! This was a BLAST :) Thanks so much for trusting me with designing your very first book blog, Reanna! I hope you'll enjoy blogging, I'm sure the book blogging community will welcome you with open arms :) 

Now, let me show you the goodies!

Here's how Reanna's blog looks like:


Phantasmic Reads <-- click here to visit and see it IRL! 

All the graphics were designed by me (including the girl in the chair, books, broom, cat, social media icons, etc..). 

Reanna decided to go with the FULL PACKAGE, which included:

- custom designed vectors (no stock images were used)
- custom fonts (post header, sidebar headers, post body, blog title)
- custom designed navigation bar, with roll-over and social media buttons incorporated.
- custom designed sidebar and post header
- custom designed post divider
- 3+1 banners
- blog button with a grab code
- facebook cover image
- twitter header and background
- featured post slider
- personalized blockquote (coded in html)
- custom designed post breakers (i.e: Synposis, Quotes, etc)
- custom designed rating system 
- custom designed favicon

Here, take a look at some of the graphics I designed for Reanna:

What do you guys think?! :) Would love to hear your thoughts and I'm sure Reanna would, too! :)

If you're interested in a blog design or re-design, please feel free to contact me at evieseo@gmail.com!
I'm currently putting together an official website for my designing business and it will be up soon! :)

Meanwhile, to celebrate the official kick-off of my business and to make up for the one recently cancelled on my blog (I'm sure you all know which one I'm talking about), here's a chance to win a book of choice from Book Depository
