What did I love about the design for Looking Through the Lens?
- It is a clean, simple design, yet very elegant. There are not a lot of design elements to clutter up the space.
- The black background provides a nice backdrop for the pictures. Now, usually I don't care for white text on a black background because it is hard for the eye to read the text. But, the font on this blog isn't too white or bold, it's not jarring to the eye at all.
- Her sidebar isn't too overstuffed with gadgets and buttons. She has some, but not an overwhelming amount, and breaks them up nicely so there isn't just a string of lists or a barrage of buttons.
Now for the amazing part - the blog designer. The designer who created Through the Lens is Lauren from Quiet Designs. Lauren is only 13 years old! Isn't she talented? She started blogging when she was 9 and is self taught in HTML code. She has really only just begun, having designed three blogs besides her own blog, Beside Quiet Waters. She designs for free, because of her age, and has several blogs she is currently working on. Due to her school schedule, her queue is not open at this time.
