Amanda of Miss Zippy came to me because she was looking for an overall “cleaner” look for her blog. There were several issues she had and she was hoping that a site redesign would help.
- felt her website looked a bit “dated” and wanted something more modern.
- no longer liked her pink header.
- felt that her website appeared too cluttered.
- she had a large empty space between her last post and her footer.
Here are some of the “before” screenshots:

To correct all of the issues she was having with her blog I installed the Genesis Framework, and my newest theme: Sweet Kitchen Genesis Child Theme. The only customisation required was to change all of the purple in the theme to blue so this was a quick and easy solution. I added in some genesis plugins to match in the social icons to her site. For her header I changed the pink to blue and put her avatar into a circle for a more modern feel. Overall it looks cleaner and corrects the cluttered feel she was having.
Here is the final product:
