* lab logo

My lab web site needed some sprucing up earlier this summer, so I brought in a professional.  seventyandsunny makes really great custom headers, which I’d been admiring on her blog for a while before hiring her.  It just so happened that she’d recently redesigned her personal blog with a specimen theme, so she was already thinking of sciencey graphics.  She was particularly thoughtful in helping me come up with design ideas, and then gave me two mocked-up options:



(These are shrunk slightly to fit my WordPress template; they’re a little sharper at full size.)

I went with the second one.  I like how it’s cute, but not overly cutesy.  Another nice thing was that she was willing to edit the mock-up for the final design.  I didn’t end up taking advantage of that because it came out great the first time. :)

Now to update craftlog’s look one of these days….
