Description

Specializing in gorgeous blog design and strategy consulting for bloggers worldwide, I personally work on all projects and would love to help you!

After years of hearing from fellow bloggers about the difficulty they had finding designers and mentors who truly understood the blog world and the tools you need to succeed, I knew I wanted to share my experience and expertise to make a difference and help other bloggers. I want to offer you the service, help and mentorship I wish I had access to when I started blogging.

You will receive a beautiful design aligned to your vision, with the professional platform and tools you need for a successful blog.

Why is this listing for blog design different to others?

When working with clients, I invest the time to genuinely understand your creative vision and goals, this ensures the design is aligned to your requirements. A unique point of difference is that we will actually speak on the phone (I don't know of any other designers who do this), but it really allows me to get to know you and thoroughly understand your vision and goals, enabling me to deliver a site you're proud of.

This isn't a 'one size fits all' template design, like some other options on Etsy and it isn't out-sourced. I personally work on all website and blog design from concept to completion, and build the site to your personal vision.

I know technical details can be confusing, so I work with you every step of the way to organize the set-up of your blog and ensure everything is perfect. With a truly client-centric approach, I ensure you feel 100% happy, excited and proud of your new blog!

I work with people all around the world - so no matter where you are, we can work together! My clients have been located in Sweden, Germany, Australia, United Kingdom, Canada and the United States.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY:

"I'm ecstatic with how it's all coming together! Absolutely beautiful. You've taken my vision and done something that I couldn't have even dreamed of."

“Lauren has that rare combination of technical and creative strengths that is hard to come by in web design. Not only does she have a keen eye for branding but also for making all of the technical pieces come together to create a beautiful, functional web site. She brought my vision to life in ways I couldn’t have imagined. It has a fresh, modern feel and is easy to navigate and user friendly. Lauren was a dream to work with and exceeded expectations in every way. She was very responsive and communicated with me every step of the project, which really put me at ease. If you’re looking for a refresh of your existing site or are ready to build something entirely new, you can completely trust her vision and execution.”

"My experience working with Lauren was beyond perfect. With thoughtfulness and an exceptional attention to detail, she made my blurred vision come to life with clarity. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Lauren, and I look forward to working with her again in the future."

"Lauren made sure to understand my personal vision and aesthetic to produce the blog design I was seeking. She exceeded my expectations and went above and beyond to deliver in a timely manner. Lauren actually scheduled a brainstorming telephone session with me one week prior to her wedding which is a true demonstration of her work ethic and dedication to her clients. This was a wonderful experience! Thanks Lauren!"

"Lauren worked one on one with me to make everything perfect. I couldn't have imagined it to be any better than what she did for me. I loved the special care that she paid to make sure she knew me well enough and could see my vision. I am so happy with the result and would recommend her over and over again!!!! a million gold stars!"

HOW I TURNED MY BLOG INTO A PROFITABLE BUSINESS:

To briefly introduce myself, I'm Lauren Slade, the editor behind successful global blog Style Elixir (stylelixir.com), founder of Bloggers Closet (bloggerscloset.com) and creator of SHE Society (shesocietyinc.com). I've collaborated with leading brands all over the world including Tommy Hilfiger, Shopbop, Macy's, Maybelline, Montage Hotels and Resorts, plus many more.

I was also offered an editorial contract with People StyleWatch magazine and featured in their September issue in an eight-page spread. I'm sharing this to explain that by having the right tools and a professional blog design, it really helps you achieve your goals!

I have a Masters degree in Marketing and Strategic Advertising and prior to blogging, worked with brands including Sofitel Luxury Hotels, Westfield and television networks.

As much as I adore blogging and being able to do that full-time, what really excites me is creative design, strategy and working with fellow bloggers to help elevate their businesses. I want to offer you the service, help and mentorship I wish I had access to when I started blogging!

    I am a new blogger, and I hired Lauren at SHE Society to design my blog. Lauren was absolutely wonderful to work with! She took the time to speak with me, ask me questions, listen to my goals and vision for my blog, and offer me much appreciated tips and advice. My blog looks absolutely fabulous, and I am honestly thrilled with how everything turned out! It is everything I could have hoped for, and I love it. I cannot thank Lauren enough for making my vision and dream come to life. I will be turning to Lauren again in the future for any blog design or update needs. I cannot recommend her enough. Not only is she a very talented web designer, she is also a pleasure to work with and a ray of sunshine.

    Ahhh this review is way overdue. Lauren is an absolute dream to work with. She brought my vision to life, better than I could have ever imagined. She calls you and really learns what you love, hate and would like to do with your blog. She kept in contact throughout the whole process. I am so in love with my site. She is absolutely amazing.

    I'm so happy with the logo Lauren designed for my boutique. I was completely lost and couldn't envision anything about it other than the color scheme, but after our phone conversation, I felt relieved and knew she would come up with something fabulous! I cannot wait to work on a website in the future!!
