What and Who?
This time we have Salted Ink - a design studio based in North Carolina. Sara is the main woman behind it. She is specializing in graphic, print, and web design. You have likely seen her work on Pinterest already because they're scattered all over there. I've been wanting to share this for so long since day one Sara presented her then brand new website back in July last year (!). It might not be the hippest web design on the net, but it sure has its won charm that knocked my socks off.
Why the Crush?
Well, it is very refreshing to see Sara's website/blog around the blogosphere. Its sleek design inspired by mid-century style makes the experience of browsing around her blog really pleasant. White space on this blog is spot on. It creates clean and crisp look. And how fun that gradient background is? It's pretty, too. Sara used subtle colours such as mint and cream that bring coastal vibe (a part of her main inspiration, btw) to her blog. Then, by adding over-layered elements here and there (which I think is a nice touch), she made her site look fun without cluttering it so much. Smart!
Now can we please talk about the typography? I specially want to talk about the font Sara used for body copy (ex: text in blogposts). Sweet Sans Medium is the font, a clean sans serif which is apparently popular in stationery world. This is actually the first time I've come across this font, and I really like it. It's easy-on-eye even in small size like Sara applied for her blog, and also very modern-looking.
The Hottest Point
I'm not going to rave so much about it since everything I am going to point out here is very obvious - you cannot miss. First, the unique angled cut of each side her layout. Cool, right? Second, how she displayed her menu bar. It's unusual from the usual horizontal bar we've all seen around. Ah, so much inspiration found in one little blog! Well, now you can see why I love this design.
