BirminghamMom.com is a local blog for moms in the Birmingham, Alabama area. The site is known for its creativity, humor and resourcefulness. While successful as a blog, the site is undergoing a redesign process of the logo and site. The goal of the redesign is to create a site that provides current content through the blog but also a directory of resources and tips for busy moms in Birmingham.
The goal of this redesign process is to create a logo and webpage design that can be replicated (with minor adjustments) in other markets and one that provides an innovative, professional look for this important local resource. As moms, we also know that it is important to retain our humor!
