Hey guys! As you probably know, Mukta recently redesigned my blog. If you haven’t seen it yet because you’ve been reading my posts in your reader or your email
or not at all, then come see it! It’s absolutely gorgeous. Mukta took my hard to understand vision and made it into the prettiest thing I’ve ever seen.
Let’s take a look!
What Mukta did:
- Picked a new theme (I love the open, clean layout)
- Designed an AMAZING header.
- Designed a blog button and post schedule.
- Designed headers for all the site pages and sidebar elements.
Check out the site if you haven’t already. I am in LOVE with the design *heart eyes emoji*
Review Of Design Pique Studios
Design Pique Studios is Mukta’s professional unprofessional business (you’ll see what I mean in a moment).
One thing you must know about Design Pique Studios is that it is an unprofessional business that designs professionally. Mukta’s business is free, but her designs are professional. This may make you think twice, but when you see the designs she’s done (she does book covers too), you’ll fall in love with her company.
Design Pique Studios has designed plenty of blogs and book covers, so naturally, Mukta is very busy. However, she was very kind (even when I disturbed her on vacation… twice) and always found time for our emails. We were able to get the design completed in less than two weeks.
Overall: I love Design Pique Studios and recommend it to you, whoever you are :). It’s very professional, not pricey at all, and easy to do. She makes the process so simple and easy and I really do recommend her.

I also have something extra special for you…
Interview with Mukta
You guys are going to love this. Definititly check out Mukta’s blog and design website.
How long have you been blogging? (also, can you send a link to your blog in the answer?)
I’ve been blogging over at my personal blog, Born Free for four years now! (I know right, sounds like forever 😉 )
What are your goals for your blog and business?
For my blog, well, my dreams are like anyone else’s. To meet and get to know people who share my interests, and to hope that every step I take is towards improvement. As for my business, it began as an experience for my working in the design field, and by far it has proved to be worth every minute I spend in it.
What are some interesting facts about yourself?
Well, I am an excessive sweater no matter what time of the year. I am an INFP-T and a somewhat fitness freak. 😛 I can officially not dance if my life depended on it, haha. AND I have both sleepwalked and sleeptalked on some long-gone day in my life, I trust.
How did you first get into blogging?
It began with my dad, actually. I had no idea what a blog was, and my dad started it to post some of my early writings and such, but now it is taken over by me completely and am glad it is so.
How would you describe your blogging style?
I would say… all over the place? It doesn’t have a fixed theme, really, so I post anything that I enjoy. The whole purpose of my blog revolves around the idea of preserving what I enjoy, so to say. J
What are some tips for beginning bloggers?
Well, I certainly would say that it takes time to get in the groove. Rocky days are normal, not feeling motivated is normal, so if you want to be a blogger, you’ll have to be up for all of it.
What is your favorite design tip?
Well, my work motto (the one I just made up a moment ago) is ‘When all else fails, clipping masks are your saviour’. And seriously, if you’re having trouble designing your blog, take it easy- find a font you like, find a texture you like, put the texture on. That works magic, trust me. 😉
Did y’all enjoy that? I loved hearing Mukta’s answers!
