A new look to Jazzpad | MOO Business Cards



The beady eyed amongst you may have noticed my beloved blog has had a bit of a makeover this week! I was feeling like a change (I was one from the myspace generation, tweaking html layouts every week to try and look cooler than I actually was), and felt inspired by my new surroundings.

Following on from this, I decided my business cards and blog paraphernalia was due an update too.

Coincidentally a lovely email from MOO dropped in my inbox this week asking if I'd like to review a new set of cards, like the ones you see here, so along with my new blog design I've got two boxes of beautiful new cards just waiting to be handed out!

I've tried the MiniCards range and although I loved them and their keyring holder, these full size versions are much more conventional. The mini ones I would lose individually in the depths of my bags, so now I can keep them all together for events and suchlike. The design quality is perfect, and I'm in love with my mini social media icons from icomonstr.

So what do you reckon guys? Liam reckons my blog looks more corporate now, which stings a little. I was aiming for elegant and a bit more grown up, less "stuff" and clutter all over the place, and more consistent. Look at me talking about graphic design as if I know what I'm on about...


I guess the last thing to say today is, along with everyone else, please don't forget about me when Google Reader disappears this weekend. I'm on bloglovin, you'll find me here, (yes I'm at the TOP of the Up & Coming Blogs in my category, amazing!) so it would be great to hit 1000 subscribers before the month is out. As usual, you can find me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram too, if you've not had your fill of Claire witterings.

  9. The new design is very smart Claire, as are the cards. I like how you used the inspiration from your home life to create the design also.

  10. I love the new design, I've also had a recent over-haul of mine and it all just feels much cleaner now, and as you say - more 'grown up'. Love those business cards too!
