Today is a very special day for me. After many months of hard work, blood, sweat and tears (many of them not mine) I am finally able to bring to you my brand new site! The whole idea of a rebrand and remodel has been on my mind for years, but I finally got around to taking the plunge this year, and today’s the day I can share it with you all!
The first thing you’ll notice is a brand new, shiny, mobile-first, responsive web experience. What does that mean? That this thing looks amazing on your desktop, your tablet and your phone! And not only does it look amazing, but it’s fast, user-friendly, and packed full of great new organisation and features!
So settle into a comfy chair for a few minutes and let me show you round…
It was an absolute pain to be able to browse my site before. If you wanted to find some quick inspiration or take a leisurely look through my back catalogue, it was near-impossible. So one of the most important things to come with this new site is a fantastic, visual way to browse my work by occasion, style or technique! Look out for these special Category squares – on the homepage and in the blog sidebar – and enjoy the content-rich presentation of my work. Over time every single post will be categorised, but for the time being there are over 250 projects ready for you to take a look through. If you’re impatient for more or are looking for something very specific, then there’s a handy search feature in the top right corner of the site navigation bar (that actually works!)
New! Press and Features Sections
Want to know where I’ve been featured, or which companies I’ve worked for? The brand new Press section contains all this information in a beautifully presented format, and even contains testimonials from some industry favourites!
Looking for access to features such as Advent Calendar Extravaganza or The Gossip Column? All of these are now easily found in the Features section.
Updated! Learn about my Mission in the About Section
I had a long hard think about why I create, and why I share with you all. I put it all together in a brand new About section, and really encourage you to read it.
New Content Is Coming!
I’ll be revising the content I’m bringing you, to hopefully bring you more inspiration and more posts. That might mean that some old favourites, like Cure For The Monday Blues Challenge, might be making a comeback! And I’ve a lot of other plans in my mind too. And of course I want to hear from you – what would help you feel inspired? What content would you like to see?
I really want to encourage you to share this brand new site and everything that has gone into it. I have put a lot of heart and soul into the experience here and really want to hear your thoughts, so please leave me a comment to let me know what you love about the brand new taheerah.com!

A Word of Thanks
Before I go, I just want to mention the amazing company that helped turn this site into a reality. Roundhouse Designs are such an amazingly talented company and they have put so much into helping to bring my site and personality to life on here. I know that I have not been an easy client by far, and I want to thank them for all the time, effort, blood, sweat and tears – and patience! – that went into what you see today. I could not have done it without them! If any of you out there are looking for someone to take your site from average to amazing these are your guys. Trust me.
Thanks everyone – and good luck!
