Tips to Creating a Banner Design Blog
To make your blog more interesting, you will need an interesting and catchy banner just like a newspaper needs a masthead or a book needs a cover.
As much as you’re being a creative writer in your blog, make it a point that your blog space spells creativity even with your blog’s banner head, such that if your blog is in Tumbler, don’t settle for the default header image that Tumbler provides but create your own banner image, one that suits well with you and your readers in mind, by editing through a banner maker app or using the settings from the desktop dashboard. Whichever is your decided process for creating the appropriate banner for your blog, you need to be prepared to work out the details, such as: your theme or brand identity, fonts of shapes and styles, kind of background, and the right images and graphics that can reflect your personality and thinking statement.
A lot of people who reads blogs on a regular basis do recognize the effort that the author has done to create an interesting, eye-catching banner head image that shows originality and poetic presence. There are many high-quality stock photos that you can get for free in graphic websites, all providing amazing stock photos, which you can choose and re-create for your blog banner, such that in re-creating the chosen photo, it should have an original stand, not just a carbon copy, and a poetic message being conveyed from it. It is equally important that you be consistent in the process of creating your blog’s banner head, such that it has to be consistency in making people be interested in your blog, in your opinions, in your thoughts – all these must be consistently found in your banner head.
Once you have chosen and re-created the appropriate banner image, see to it that the image can be resized so that it can work well horizontally, since basically all banner heads are on a horizontal projection. With cropping, you can resize the photo, as well as expand it on a horizontal projection.
Making a Beautiful Background
Generally, a minimal white background is the most popular choice in the Tumbler market and in websites, as well, and here lies the challenge on how to decide what background color and design for the banner head can work out well for your blog. By investing time to see what better options can be chosen in looking for the appropriate background for your banner head, you can try the following measures: using banner maker apps or tumbler templates or researching through the internet on ideas for a beautiful background.
Give a Complete Run-Through for the Details
Little touches on how you would want your banner image to be presented, such as subtle textures, patterns, shadows in the right places, edge highlights, color shading, etc can truly spell the difference in providing an attractive, well-thought of design creation.
