I was going to do another top five blogs I’ve been reading this month post, but then I realised there was really only one that I wanted to talk about, Cocorrina . So, that’s what I’m going to do. This is a more in depth review of the one blog I’m loving above all else at the minute (I think I might do more of this kind of long review as well as quick run downs).
WHAT IS IT?
Founded in 2012, by Corina Nika, Cocorrina is a design studio and blog. Corina’s blog includes everything from her design work, to recipes, to tips on freelancing. Her site is quite minimal and really shows off her visual content.
WHY DO I LIKE IT?
Firstly, and most obviously, Cocorrina’s based around something I love (and something you probably love to if you’re on my blog) design. Secondly, you can tell she cares about her content. Her design work is always on point, and you can tell she really puts a lot of time and thought into every pattern and passion piece she puts up. I’ve particularly been loving her The Freelance Life series, which contains loads of great advice about freelancing. Corina’s style is clear but also personal, you know that she’s got experience and she’s not just talking about things without caring about them.
WHERE SHOULD YOU START?
If you’re a designer, budding or otherwise, check out her series The Freelance Life . As mentioned above it has some really great advice on freelancing and design and covers a whole range of topics, some of which I had never really thought about. I’d also check out her courses if you’re looking to hone some specific skills, I’ve not used any of them, but judging by the standard of her work they’re likely to be great. If you’re not a designer and looking for some great visual stimulation, have a look through her design and downloadables sections, and you might just find yourself a new wallpaper in the process. In the mood for some more lifestyle based stuff? She also has some really nice, and beautifully photographed, recipes and some swoon worthy outfit inspiration.
