Another new blog header?! Yup!
Do you want to know why I change my blog header so often? Because I'm always learning. This blog is the best place for me to try out my experiments. First I was designing blog headers in Photoshop and now I've moved on to Illustrator. I design it, save it, see if it works, leave it up for a while, get bored with it, learn a new trick or technique, and design another. The life of an aspiring graphic designer. I have the daunting task of designing a brand new site for our printing company and I'm totally over-whelmed by it so in the meantime, I learn new tricks here. I play with the HTML coding, see how it work, design web images, see if they work, it's all part of my master plan. I don't really know what that master plan is yet, but I swear, this is all part of it! This particular header I think is pretty boring but that's what I was going for. I wanted one that did not incorporate a photo, contrary to my adoration for photo & text blog headers. For those of you who read dooce you probably have figured out that I'm insanely envious of her blog header design skills. Most recently she mentioned a book of clip art that she uses for her designs and eluded to the fact that there are lots of other books out there that are useful. Why do I not think of these things?! I am so not in-the-know about graphic design stuff. Anyway, I hope you like the new, if not temporary, header.
