As you might have noticed, we’ve had a little work done.
Well, more than a little work. In fact, our whole site is different: we’ve got a new site format, a new logo, a new spot color (bye bye, baby pink!), bigger images and a whole new set of site fonts.
Fashionista has evolved a great deal since its founding six years ago, and developing a design that would reflect those changes — and the changes in online media consumption that have occurred in that timeframe — was a fun and challenging project.
