Once I had got my basic HTML in place. I started to edit it so that the aesthetics would be simple but had a professional but fun element to them. I used MuseoSlab font as the headers and used Merriweather as the main body text.
I think these two typefaces go really well together. I then combined this will a background texture of the below, which is a slight paper texture. I think this gives the website an organic feel.
I have decided as my important colour to choose a light green as my palette below, but as in a magazine style everything else is simplified.
