" While we can take you from point A to point B all the way down to point W, we are not, nor will we ever be, rocket scientists. There is no one formula for creating what we do. Most days we show up to the canvas and the screen with a big "what if" on our lips. We start with an idea, a few basic pieces of ephemera or one central image and then play with textures and moving things around until something looks interesting. Because the boundaries within Adobe Photoshop are fairly limitless, we tend to do a lot of experimenting until something on the page—or someone—screams, "This way! Play with me!" And this is something we cannot teach. This is an intuitive process only you can cultivate." — Angi Sullins and Silas Toball

Choosing a Design
Most blog-hosting services, also known as blog community sites, offer easy, step-by-step instruction for blog design. You may choose from a variety of ready-made template designs or create a custom look for your blog using your own art (more on that later). A few things to consider about your design are as follows:
If you’re creating an art blog, space is important. Most blog-hosting sites offer templates that allow your content to be sorted into one, two or three columns. With art as the main focus of a blog, it’s better to have less columns, thereby making more space on the page for your artwork.
Whether you choose an existing art design provided by your hosting service or you create one of your own, the header (or image at the top of your blog’s main page) should reflect your blog’s content. The header is what visitors will see first. This is your
calling card, and you want it to reflect your sense of style.
When establishing your layout, consider setting up tags for your entries. Tags allow each post to be sorted into a category, so similar entries are grouped together. This sort of grouping allows visitors to easily find posts that interest them.
Keep It Up Top
When choosing a design, remember that whatever you most want visitors to know should be kept up top within the first third of the "page." Whether that be a bio or mission statement, contact information or a sign-up feature, if you want your new viewers to know something important, design your blog so that information is always on top.
