New Look

A few months ago I started dreaming up a new look for Life with Jack. I came to the point where my own amateur blog design had reached it's limit and I needed to bring in some help.

dreaming of a "Fancy NEW header" :)

A few scribbles and dreams on a page in my journal became what you see now. Our new space! And the highlight for me is our new logo, hand illustrated by Ashley of thorn + sparrow.

Hand illustrated means that the lovely Ashley took out her art supplies and by hand, created our logo. How cool is that?!

I knew I wanted a Montana designer for our logo and I think I came across her work through mutual friends... but really, I don't quite remember how I found her! All I know is that I'm glad I did.

The design process was a lot of fun. I came up with an "about me" for Ashley to go off of, that included what I wanted in a logo, my style, my favorite colors, my favorite places to shop, what I like about websites/logos, and about Jack and his favorite things. From that, Ashley dreamed up our logo. She doesn't know this, but I secretly hoped she would include pine trees in the final designs.... and of the top three choices, pine trees were in every one! So cool, friends.

This space, where I write about all things Jack, is so special to me. It makes my heart happy to see this new look take shape.

Pin It!
