Ooooooh how I love font pairing! Choosing the right fonts for your project is so important. You’ll need to consider readability, size and weight. When pairing fonts you’ll want to make sure the fonts don’t contrast each other (like using two script font – no, no!).
If you’re reading this and you’re a business owner, you NEED a brand board.
You’ve probably heard of a brand board or maybe you’ve seen them on Pinterest.
What is a brand board?
A brand board is an excellent way of communicating your brand’s personality in a concise and easy to understand way. It’s also a great way to reference your branding at any time so you can make sure you’re staying consistent. A biz brand that is inconsistent = no bueno.
Why do you need a brand board?
Branding is a critical step in growing your business. A memorable brand translates to more clients and more sales (duh, who doesn’t want that?).

Have you ever wanted to show specific widgets only on certain pages in WordPress? I know that I have, and there’s a plugin I use to do it!
By default WordPress widgets generally show on every page of your blog. The only way to not show widgets on a specific page is to remove the sidebar all together from that page by changing it to a full width content layout.
One of the most requested WordPress plugins for me is the Pin to Pinterest plugin, which allows users to hover over images on your blog and a pin to Pinterest button appears over the image. This allows readers to quickly and easily pin images within your posts to Pinterest. The default image that comes with the plugin is fine – however it looks even better to customize the image to match your site.
Have you ever come across a blog or website that has a design or feature you would like to use? As a design I’ve often come across sites that use cool plugins or a unique theme that I’m curious to learn more about.
