This is my new blog logo.
It was designed by my daughter as a Father's Day gift.
It was totally her idea. She is a graphic design major in college and with the way the world is, businesses not hiring college-age talent for internships and such, she had some time to work on her skills for my benefit.
I love it.
One of its cool components is the background is transparent so I can use it with any background color I want.
The last one shows you how nice it looks against the blog color background. I will probably go with the white or light gray option as the logo stands out best with that color.
Now for the tricky part.
This will necessitate a blog redesign, unfortunately.
My current blog design, which I like for its minimalist nature, is not friendly when it comes to using photos or graphic elements in the header or wherever. Blogger in general makes installing things like this a pain, so it's going to take some experimenting before I settle on something I like. So if you jump on Night Owl Cards and see a bunch of hammering and sawing, you'll know why. (I've already tinkered with the background).
I want to make sure that the logo isn't so big that people have to scroll down for new content, that's one of the reasons why I moved to the more simplistic, "professional" design. But I also want to make sure it's prominent.
Happy Father's Day to you all the fathers. Hope your kids are as awesome as mine is.
