Black, White & Read Books: Blog Makeover

Black White & Read Banner copyI’ve been on tenterhooks waiting to tell you all about this awesome blog and the graphics I did for its birthday makeover. Black, White & Read Books relaunched with a whole new look on its third birthday yesterday and I’m really happy with how the banner and other graphics turned out!

Bear Allen is a girl after my own heart – she loves books and coffee. And if you are a book lover too, you must visit her blog because a delicious treat awaits you. If you also happen to be a Gilmore Girls fan, you might have just died and gone to heaven. For Black, White & Read books, Bear’s goal is to read all of the books (or authors if a book wasn’t specified) mentioned in the show. That’s quite a huge undertaking, as it’s already taken three years just to get through season one! You have to see the unique way that she does her posts – these aren’t just any old book reviews.

As if that weren’t enough, Bear also reviews her “extracurricular” reading. Deep Thoughts from Damp Tresses are the books not taken from Gilmore Girls and Tales from the Toyota are audiobook reviews.


TalesfromtheToyotaWorking on these graphics with Bear was really fun, not only because I loved her ideas  in general but because she has an excellent eye for color. A lot of thought went into this palette! We worked together “live” via Facebook messenger quite a bit, especially to get the banner just right.
