My header is new (for those of you that are here for the first time) and a little over a week ago I posted the one designed by Lemon Cherry Blogs. I love the illustration so much–I think for the winter I’ll have her draw me wearing boots and a turtleneck!
Then a few days later, my good friend Guylaine Rondeau, a very talented graphic designer who has been in the business for 20 years, decided my new header needed some more white space; which by the way, she wrote about [here] on her blog. So for my birthday she tweaked my already beautiful header and emailed it to me.
When I saw the new font she had chosen (with the addition of the row of colour on the top and bottom which was a wonderful and happy touch) I asked her why it was not centered? She said, “That would be like what people do with their furniture without a designer, they line it up all around the room, instead of arranging their furniture so that it creates a conversation area”. It reminded me of a statement Nate Berkus once made on Oprah, “It’s like your furniture is all under arrest!”.
