Hello & welcome to the grand re-brand and re-launch of Kara Rajchel Blog Design!
Kara Rajchel Blog Design was formerly called Parity Designs. I created Parity Designs back when I first started freelancing years ago and needed a website. A lot has changed since I created my first site so long ago. I’ve gotten married, moved to two different states and one new country and have learned so much about web design, WordPress, SEO, Social Media and being a freelancer in the process. It’s been a winding road that has taken me in a new direction.
I’ll be going into the a deeper explanation of the hows and whys of my re-brand in a blog post on Monday, until then here is the TLDR version. For the past year or so I’ve been unhappy with my brand. I’d gone through several different website designs and never felt anything click. If I loved it, I loved it only until it went live. I felt like my brand didn’t fit me. That lead me in search of branding advice. Ultimately I came to realize the brand I had started, Parity Designs, wasn’t who I was anymore – if I ever even was that brand. The reason I didn’t feel like the brand was working was because it was something I wasn’t. To have a brand it to know who you are. I can’t tell you how empowering it is, when you realize your brand and embrace it!
Kara Rajchel Blog Design is very similar to Parity Designs in some ways. If you worked with me before my re-brand you’ll notice that for the most part all of my prices have remained the same as have my processes. The only difference is a new look and a slightly new attitude. I’m not a sleek, modern, Apple, hipster type designer. My weapon of choice is a Windows machine, my phone is Android, and my desk is a mess. I’m a real person, just like you. I’m a blogger, just like you. I get it, I’ve been there, and I want to help you grow and improve your blog so you can reach your goals. Your goals are my goals, and I want to be part of your team.
From blog design to social media to the back-end stuff, I can help you get your blog under control. I do everything from transfer to WordPress, to blog themes, to graphic design, to editing your theme to fix a bug or make it custom.
