As you may have noticed, the Cutting Edge Stencils blog recently got a design makeover! While keeping with the green theme that we have established on our main website, our blog is now a lighter hue, and, consequently and appropriately, has a more personal feel. We have also officially named our blog – Stencil Stories! Before reaching this solution, members of Cutting Edge Stencils brainstormed lots of different name possibilities together. Some of our runner ups were Stencil Bug, Stencil Trends, and Stencil Adventures. If you read our blog post on our new logo design, you know how much effort goes into coming up with the perfect type treatment! Although we had settled on a name for our blog, our work was nowhere near done. You can check out some of the type explorations for our blog header below. We also implemented the typeface Gotham throughout our new design, the same typeface that we use in our new logo. Luckily, Gotham is a typeface with many different weights (light, thin, medium, bold, black, etc.), so it’s great for creating differentiation while also keeping everything unified as a cohesive whole.
Our blog has lots of other new features as well! The slideshow banner at the top of the page is constantly changing, showcasing all kinds of different DIY projects with stencils. Thanks to our new user-friendly navigation menu, searching for a specific DIY blog post has never been so easy. Also, take a look at the right side of our blog and follow our blog via NetworkedBlogs. Simply click “Follow This Blog” and never worry about missing an update again! Our new design makes it hassle-free for our DIY readers to find room decor and decorating ideas with stencils quickly and efficiently.
