Keep It Simple: Designing Our Site

As we soft launch the Amelia Indie Authors site, the team needs to communicate about a variety of things. For example, Nancy and Andrea used this post to make adjustments to our desired site colors. (Some of the selections in the original palette did not translate well to fonts.)

Next, our wonderful virtual assistant will be making a few font changes for easier reading. Since we (currently) use a WordPress template, there are *two* places to make such adjustments. And, one of the honchos did not keep detailed notes when first drafting the site. We hope this post may help our intrepid VA track down the correct menu to use to make the adjustment.

Stay tuned.

Testing Colors and Fonts

Testing Colors and Fonts

After choosing brand elements, they need to be reflected in our materials. That includes a website, made from a template I’d not used before. So, while building the site, there were several test posts designed both to see such elements and to share them with the rest of the team.

This post shows the various headline colors, sizes, and fonts so we would know which to choose. (They are generally created in the template navigation but can be “applied” from WordPress.)

While writing a WordPress post, you will see a drop-down menu in the upper left corner. That drop-down can be used to assign various formats to parts of your post. One of the reasons for creating a guide post like this one is so you can see what you are choosing — they don’t look like much from the draft side!

We’re sharing lots of these process pieces with members so you can get a feel for how the parts fit together.
