This is the second makeover in my new series: PSD Makeover. This month’s volunteer was Lorna at Gin & Lemonade.


  • A very basic layout that is easy to follow
  • Menu is easy to find and links are very easy to understand
  • Sidebar is pretty clean and not too cluttered


  • The site is too basic there is no real color or personality
  • No real logo
  • Social media is spread out between a page and in the sidebar


Create a logo that was bright and fun.

Add some color and style. Pull the color scheme from the logo to showcase the fun name of the blog.

Bring in some texture with the background and banner under the logo.

Add the social media icons to the top of the site above the menu where visitors can find it quick and link up.

Keep the layout basically the same but excerpt the blog posts to make less scrolling.

Also included a designated place for photos to make the posts themselves pop.

Make the email subscription sign up bolder and stand out more.

Bring in the same style and color scheme into the sidebar.



I am looking for anyone who may be interested in participating in a PSD makeover by Uniquehorn Designs. If you are interested post in the comments with the link to the site you would like redone!
