Procedures in Making a Banner Design for Your Blog
Just like what mastheads are to newspapers and covers to books, so with blogs, it needs an interesting, no nonsense banner head.
If your blog is in Tumbler, don’t settle for the default header image that Tumbler provides, create your own, one that suits you well with your readers in mind, and edit by using a banner maker app or using the settings from the desktop dashboard. As soon as you have decided which procedure will help you create your banner head, make ready to be creative with details in the image making of your banner, such as the following: 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.
Most people who read blogs do appreciate the effort that the author has put in creating an interesting banner or header image for his/her blog, and the appreciation emanates from the originality and poetic presentation of the banner image. 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. As much as your intention in creating a banner head design is to interest further your readers, make sure that there is consistency that is found and felt in your blog space, such that your readers can see your thoughts and ideas through the graphic image of 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
The challenge of deciding which background color and design will appropriately suit the banner head in your blog is a tricky one. Using banner maker apps or tumbler templates or researching through the internet on ideas for a beautiful background will provide you solution options that you can undertake.
Attention for Details
Be meticulous with the little details in your banner head creation, such as subtle textures, patterns, shadows in the right places, edge highlights, color shading, etc and by doing so, you’ll have created an interesting and well-thought of banner image for your blog.
