Hello all. I'm a comedian and others would say - not me, of course, being humble - that I'm a good one. I've done some American TV, mainly Comedy Central, and performed in 35 out of the 50 states. I blog to a very extensive email list, approximately 5,000 plus subscribers. I talk about comedy, writing, and creation, mostly. I'm looking to redesign my blog header and really the whole look of my site, around said header image. I like simple, clean, attractive stuff - no clipart or microphones flying around. Nothing that is too businessy looking, but yet movement inspiring. I'm a huge fan of http://www.gapingvoid.com, http://www.chrisguillebeau.com/, http://www.ittybiz.com, and http://johnnybtruant.com/. I need my version of that.
Comedy fans, Writers, Artists, Creative types. You can see the current (ugly-baby's-first-computer version) blog here: http://www.coffeeandshowbiz.com. This is where I blog about writing, creating, art, comedy, performing, etc. My stuff is widely read. The idea is to eventually blend both beckydonohue.com and coffeeandshowbiz.com. So, the header should have that feel.
Clean, Simple, yet Magnetic graphic. (I know, I'm sure you're thinking I can go f myself at this point.) But, you guys can do this stuff, I can NOT. And it's good to know what you can NOT do.
- Incorporate the apple/create/bite-out-of/power symbol graphic that I have attached along with the tagline, "Create Every Day". (The attached jpeg can be used as is or you can create your own using the power symbol as apple with bite out of it, minus the hand.)
- Also incorporate my name: Rebecca Donohue. And the words: Writer, Comedian, Creator.
- Header graphic can be entirely in black and white or in color. I will work the blog around the look of the header graphic.
Please look at the below for feel, business model, and clean, simple, header graphics that I like:
Thank you! Thank you very, very much.
