Writings from the Foxhole – Custom TypePad Design

Custom Blog Design

Tarsha runs a blog on the TypePad platform, but was looking for something a bit more custom and more unique to her own personal style. She approached us for some design work to her TypePad templates and had a very specific look she was going for. The name of her site, Writings from the Foxhole, comes from her last name (FOX) and how she has viewed and lived her life (from a foxhole…a battle position).

Project Details


Tarsha had specific ideas that she wanted for her site, starting with the color scheme she wanted to see. She wanted a dark scheme with black, chocolate brown, gold and a dusty rose color. She wanted a military look, but wanted it to maintain a feminine feel, at the same time.

Tarsha provided us with some ideas and photos to work from, and our designer, Alicia, went to work and created a beautiful 3-column blog design and used TypePad’s Custom CSS feature to apply the new style to her site.

  • Powered by TypePad

  • Web site design with WordPress
  • Customized Cascading Style Sheet (CSS)


“The whole process with E.Webscapes was very professional, well managed, and organized. With my limited knowledge of web design language and techniques, I pleasantly surprise at how smooth the process was.”

I cannot say enough to give Alicia the proper praise and credit owed to her. She did a fabulous job with my site, she understood every idea I had and the overall vision I wanted for the design and within no time, came up with the perfect design that fit my personality as well as the message I wanted portrayed on the site. She was very professional, courteous, and patient with me…very knowledgeable, proficient, and consistent with feedback, suggestions, and ideas. She left no question unanswered and no issue unresolved. I couldn’t have asked for a better designer.

Just glad that I chose the right people for the job!!
