Kaizen Vision’s New Look

by Aileen

It’s here, Kaizen Vision’s new look! This makeover has been quite a process of letting go and opening my mind.

There was so much that I enjoyed about the previous look. I liked the faintly outlined cherry blossoms and the swirling lines. I loved how the red, amber, and orange colors gave it a warm sunset feeling. Unfortunately, however, the site had too many design limitations that prevented me from enhancing it or adding new features, so I decided that moving to a more flexible custom design made the most sense.

After brainstorming numerous cherry blossom designs with my husband G, we eventually came up with this simple tree and we both fell in love with it! As with Kaizen, the tree slowly yet continuously grows, always branching out in new directions and tirelessly reaching for the skies, and all the while staying firmly grounded and stable… Ahhhh to be a tree!

We also loved the blue which we felt represents the endless sky, mankind’s infinite imagination and limitless potential while the rising sun is the promise that each new day brings, a chance to start fresh, and an opportunity to renew.

Today my wish for you is that you enjoy taking your continuous steps towards the direction of your dreams, goals and visions. Although it might not always happen as fast as we would like, what matters more is that they do happen and that we are always open to all the colors and directions that life has to offer.

So here it is, our new Kaizen Vision. Please share your thoughts and let me know what you think of the new look.

Aileen,
That’s an awesome tree…I love the new look…simple and joyful. And your last sentence, “Although it might not always hap­pen as fast as we would like, what mat­ters more is that they do hap­pen and that we are always open to all the col­ors and direc­tions that life has to offer.” It’s da bomb! Have fun in Blog World and I do hope you share like crazy when you return. You are going right?

I am so glad you did not listen to me and go with the red. The blue is perfect. It is so fitting. I LOVE the tree, the flowers, it reminds me of the cherry blossoms in Tokyo during those quick weeks in April. Great work, Aileen. Here’s to many happy writing adventures here in your new beautiful space!

Congratulations Aileen – the new design looks stunning and sum up the Kaizen philosophy beautifully.

I am so glad you took your time in evolving your design in yuor own good time rather than rushing through when we first spoke about this all those months ago.

My wish for you is that you too enjoy tak­ing con­tin­u­ous steps towards the direc­tion of your own dreams, goals and visions:-)

Love and gratitude

Hi Arvind, I’m glad you like the new look. I was holding on to making the new look red/orange for quite some time – but it felt like the blue just wanted to come out and “be” so… I let it. :)

thank you for your wonderful wish, “My wish for you is that you too enjoy tak ing con tin u ous steps towards the direc tion of your own dreams, goals and visions”
