The Marathon Mom was a new website for Brandy Ferguson who is a stay at home mom. She shares her tricks and tips on raising and home schooling her 7 boys. Brandy previously had a blog on wordpress.com but felt limited by the available themes and plug-ins.
After discussing Brandy’s needs for her website I directed her to a few websites to select a free WordPress theme.
Brandy chose the Grunge Floral theme but wanted the color pallet and some layout items changed. Although I did not have access to the original design files, I was able to change the color scheme to her liking. I also created a custom header with her picture and moved the page navigation. The end result was a website that she likes along wih her readers.
