A Fresh Look

August 4, 2014

Clearly, there have been some big changes on the blog! We could not be more freaking excited to share the new look with you all and welcome all feedback (constructive criticism is always welcome). It's been a labor of love getting to this new design...our last re-design launched in February 2013 and while we loved the look, we felt like it was time for something more special and different.

 

We turned to our friend, the incredibly talented Hanna Seabrook of Gadabout Creative, to design our new identity and layout and both of us are obsessed with how it turned out. Hanna is so creative (and patient, and smart, and funny, and the best kind of perfectionist) and she is the sole lady responsible for the awesome logo and all other cool features. Thank you again for all your hard work, H!

It might take a bit of time getting used to the new site but we think you all will like it. A few things to point out…when you click “read more” the post drops down instead of taking you away from the main page. This is our favorite feature as it keeps the site clean but doesn’t deter all you fine readers from clicking read more (we know going to a new page can get tiresome). We think you’ll like the Shop page and we have a feeling that many of you will be happy that subscribing is now available. What else? We just hope you enjoy APoT more than ever. And THANK YOU for reading!!

xx – S + M

  1. Love the design – your fonts are fabulous btw! It’s very vintage chic and fun. We love seeing other duos thrive!

  2. The new layout is making it hard to read a comment when I click through on bloglovin’…everything is spaced out strangely, the comment box is showing up at the top of the page & there are big white areas over a lot of the text so I can’t even read the post! Hoping it’s just a browser issue & it gets better soon :/ otherwise love the new look!

  3. Oooo I LOVE it ladies! So fresh and clean and unlike anything else out there. I can’t wait to snoop around :)

  4. Love the new look gals! The layout might take some getting used to but I love how different it is!

    as someone who’s 9-5 is in branding, i’m obsessed wiht the identity. I think it’s safe to say that your inital brand mark influenced a lot of bloggers…and some copycats. the new mark is great!

  5. Congrats ladies! Things are lookin’ mighty fine around aPot!
    p.s. I can’t scroll through the author guide on the side bar, so i am missing half of the info.

  6. You’re site looks so great! I love the way the drop down menus work and how simple the platform is. I really loved your site before, but these changes are awesome! I can’t wait to see what you guys have next.

  8. I love the new design! It’s so clean and modern looking, it makes your content and navigation feel so organized. love it.

  9. Congrats on the new page- it looks great! Love that clicking read more doesn’t take you to a new page- what a great feature.

  10. It’s a lovely redesign. Congratulations! Sally, for your upcoming move, check out Room & board home furnishings, there is a beautiful store in san francisco. I AM THE CREATIVE DIRECTOR, so i know what i’m talking about. ;-)

    1. Jill,
      Funny you say that because I am currently trying to get my fiance on board with a four poster bed from Room&Board that I have been dying over:) Maybe its meant to be?! Thank you for reading!
