BRIEF  //  BRAND IDENTITY & UI DESIGN

blogwise is a SaaS tool designed for early stage startups to quickly build custom-domain hosted blogs with content marketing strategies. As co-founder of blogwise and Head of Design, I named the company, created its brand identity, and designed the user interface that enables customers to create their own beautiful blog in minutes. Below you can see: 1) the blogwise landing page and site, 2) the UI of the tool itself, and 3) the brand guidelines.
SOLUTION

Working on blogwise was a new experience for me in designing SaaS tools. I built the UI on Figma and worked with full stack engineers to iterate on new product features.

blogwise was a window into the technical needs of startups and illuminated the specific pain points of content marketing. In addition to my usual branding role, this project called for a more granular approach to user interface design, which required thinking not only about customer use but also reader experience on our customer's blogs. As a designer who uses blog-makers frequently, it was fun to be on the other side of the equation, making the templates exactly as I'd want them.
