Room of Your Own | Great Blog Design (Room 4)

Great design is subjective. Except when it's not. There are hard and fast rules that bloggers should abide by in order to have the most visually appealing blog possible. Cynthia Wheeler, an illustrator who blogs at Nap Warden and has designed over 100 blogs, and Jill Smokler, a graphic designer who blogs at Scary Mommy, each know a thing or two about good design. Both hold BFAs in design and have spent years pouring over typography, illustrations, and photography, and hope to make the blog world a more beautiful place. They will provide real, take-home advice that is sure to make any great blog even better.
