Hello and thank you for reading my design brief. I am looking to improve the look of my current tumblr blog thatdogsblog.tumblr.com. Currently, it's a two column blog with my content on the left and a menu panel on the right. I would like to eliminate the menu panel on the right and create a new menu panel at the top of the page horizontally. Additionally, I am looking to simplify and streamline the overall look of my blog so that it looks more polished and professional than it does right now. I have a new logo (see attached) and I would like to get rid of the pink pig wallpaper.
I was thinking something like this:
Header/New Logo insert
Social media buttons / an Archive button / a Subscribe button / and a Search bar somewhere up top
Horizontal menu bar with drop down functionality (see attached site map for the text)
Then my posts, keeping them the same proportion and layout as my current blog but slightly larger (would be helpful to use a couple of my current posts in the mock up so that I can visualize my content with your new design around it.
Then a banner ad to appear after every 5-7 posts
I would also like to add the following changes to the post section:
Design a better way to display the date of each post, maybe on the top left of the post?
Add a Heart button
Add a Comments button
Add a Reblog button
Add a Share button - I like the one from Safari
Design a better way to display the Tags for the post - at the bottom of the post.
Thank you for participating!
