As my dear online stalkers will have noticed by now, Walking In Public and anniebethericsson.com have gotten a makeover! Web design has never really been my thing, and I’ve struggled in the past with trying to create a professional and consistent online presence that is also easy to update.
Enter my hero, flavors.me! This new site allowed me to create a personalized custom website by embedding existing social media outlets (like WordPress, Twitter, and LinkedIn) into one hip, designed package. I’m loving this alternative to a Flash site because it’s not static – my work and online life is constantly changing and updating, and I need something that reflects all that I’m learning and doing, day by day, no coding included.
To complement my new look at anniebethericsson.com, I also freshened up my other sites to match. Since I can’t add content directly to flavors.me, I created a Tumblr blog simply for my illustration portfolio, but made it look similar to the home page (you can also view slideshows of more work on the Tumblr site that you can’t on flavors.me, so it’s worth checking out separately).
And since the Walking In Public blog and Twitter design was outdated, I whipped up some new puffins MUCH more reflective of my current style. And . . . I just realized, that all I paint anymore is birds. Oops!
Anyway, check it out and enjoy!
