I was contacted by Tracey Lawton to design an attractive header to work with her blog theme – Thesis. As many of you may know, Thesis is a highly versatile theme that is used by many bloggers on the Wordpress platform. The challenge is not to create a header, but to create one that artfully shows what the client does without taking over the entire design.
Tracey wanted a design that was attractive yet fun; she wanted to use her headshot and she had specific colors she wanted to use. To quote the client, “The look that I’m going for is professional and crisp, yet fun and informal.”
The first 2 looks were close, but not quite there:
They were close but not there YET! Finally, I took elements from both the first and second version and came up with this:
That was it! Tracey was pleased and we put it up on her blog – you can take a look here:
If you’d like to read what Tracey had to say, here’s her testimonial:
I asked Debbi to create a header for me for my blog and she did a fabulous job; I’m so pleased with it. I told her some basics of what I was after, particularly in terms of colors, but wasn’t too sure about the style. She took what I told her and came up with three great designs for me to choose from – one of which was perfect. She turned all this around in less than a week and even uploaded my new header onto my blog for me.
I’ll definitely use Debbi again and now have a great referral source for my clients. Thank you Debbi!
