I must confess that one of my worst habits is a side effect of being a Gemini – I get bored easily. I was bored with the logo/blog header I’ve had since launching this blog in November 2014. I was craving change. The girl with the camera around her neck, a daisy in her hair and two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels on leads (see below) was never quite what I had visualised but I accepted her and got used to her, even though she never really looked a thing like me!
One of my dogs, Chelsea, passed away in May this year, so it was time for the girl with the two dogs on leads to be archived away and a new logo to take her place. I don’t like clutter or noisy-bright-jarring colours that hurt your eyes, so I decided that I wanted something simple and calming – some hand lettering/calligraphy with a subtle nature element to reflect my love of nature. No distracting colour. No pictures. Simple. Understated. Elegant.
So that is what I got … and here they are. I say ‘they’ because I have two versions. The one for here on the blog as a header and another to use on social media.
Notice that the ‘nature element’ – the little wisp of leaves – is on the ‘right of the middle’ of the WOTM text. I like that little play on the words – don’t you? By the way, if you’re wondering what the meaning is behind the name of ‘Write of the Middle’ you can find out on my About page (scroll down a bit and it is all explained).
So what do you think? Like the new look? Hope so cos I sure do!
A huge thank you to Melinda Cooper who is the creative talent behind the new look. She was incredibly patient with me and so quick, efficient and reliable (love reliable people)! Melinda was an absolute pleasure to work with and such a nice person! Here’s where you can see more of her work:
Ciao for now,
P.S. I am having issues with the mobile phone version of this blog’s theme. It cuts off the header and looks terrible. If I can’t rectify the problem, it looks like I will have to change themes – so more change may be ahead!
