Over the years, we’ve had a couple of designers contact us to say “I love your site……but here’s a new masthead.”
We figure that’s the nice way of saying that the current masthead looks like it was state of the art for the 80’s.
The first proposed masthead, above, was created by reader Roland Onodi. The second, below, was created by reader Brook Boley.
These give us three ideas:
- We could spend some time on a site redesign/update;
- We could add a ‘makeover Monday’ feature, where we would feature a banner that highlights the work of readers like Onodi and Boley; or
- We could rotate the masthead and try to do variations on a theme, like MTV used to do with its logo.
What do you think? Should we explore one of these options? Or is the masthead irrelevant to you – you come here for the synth news?
