Alex is always encouraging me to sell the things I make. I finally decided to get a booth and just do it. I'm making these nursing covers that can also be used as car seat covers to sell at the Robin Hood Festival. In order to cut down costs, I thought I could make a trade with them... a revamped website for booth space. They agreed to the trade.
Here's what their old site looks like:
And this is what my website looks like:
If you are a weebly frequenter or if you've read a certain previous post, you'll recognize the design as their template. Yes, I used someone else's design, yes it was hard to do, but here's my reasoning: If I had used my own images, it would have taken me much, much longer. It would have taken more time than I could afford. So I used their design, but still used my own skills with organizing content, choosing fonts, and creating headers. While the overall design is not mine, I can still take credit for the time spent figuring out which fonts and layouts would be best and what should go where. Web Design is fun, but I really enjoy print design much more as it is my strong suit. If someone is paying me to create a site, of course I'll use my own images. In this case, the pay only goes up to the price of the booth, so I needed to limit the time I spent creating the site. Oh, and don't worry, using a weebly template is completely legal.
