Recycle your old pictures
I had the usual designer's dilemma of how to pick one image to represent me at the top of my blog. Do I go minimalist or decorative? Do I choose this typeface or that? Do I choose this colour scheme or that? Anyway I've resolved it by deciding to have regular seasonal (or even - if I'm up to it - monthly) changes to my masthead.
So now we kick off with my autumn masthead. The typeface is Trajan and the illustration has been taken from a water-colour illustration I did for a book of the natural history around my art college buildings.
