A custom blog design for a lifestyle blogger in the Philippines.
Cat JL is a lifestyle site by Cat Juan Ledesma that focuses on books, food, art + design, travel, and all things proudly Filipino. As a former magazine editor and current freelance writer for various publications, she loves to write and enjoy taking pictures, a combination which shines through on her blog.
Armed with a couple of website pegs and a mood board, Cat reached out to us with the request that she wants a warm lifestyle magazine feel for her blog. She envisions her site to be somewhere she can share bits of her life while promoting local products that deserve the limelight.
Cat provided us with a specific list of features that she likes for her blog to have. Her end goal was to have a blog design where her readers will feel welcome and will be engaged to stay for a while.

Web designers Paul and Kaye Iñigo, the lovely couple behind Squeesome, listened to every need I had and worked hard to make them happen. Our email correspondence are long and tedious (around 100 in total). Despite my constant requests for the smallest of changes, they always responded with a smile and happily worked to turn my site into what I envisioned it to be. Thank you for not giving up, guys!
