Shop Feature: Ohksocialmedia, It's All About The Social!

This week's Shop feature is Ohksocialmedia by Kristy Gardner. She specializes in Blog Design. there are a few pre-made  templates you can buy if you are trying to make a few changes for your blog. Of course, you could get a total new look here and request a custom design as well. You can also get custom made blog buttons or signatures. the possibilities are  endless just contact her to see what she can do for you.  Check her out  down below for more details about her.

1. How did you come up with the Name of your Shop?

It's a bit of a play on words. I wanted something friendly and approachable that would portray the scope of my business, but still be true to me. One of my girlfriends calls me "K" all the time instead of "Kristy" and then one day it hit me: ohksocial(media). "ohk" as in Okay (friendly and casual); "Oh, K!" as in delightfully surprised at myself; social media because that's what I do = ohksocialmedia.

2. Tell us a little bit about your shop and what you think makes it unique?

My shop is the creative extension of the larger social media consulting and management firm. Essentially I do blog design and I believe It's unique because of my approach. I think blog-platform hosted websites reflect the fluidity of our culture – allowing the flexibility to shift with the times and our audience. We need to move away from traditional websites and evolve. In such, I work very hard to make sure your design reflects you more than it does me which I think is something a lot of design shops don't follow through with.
