I need to buy the Bible of graphic design. Is there such a thing? I’d love to learn, but my school schedule is too full of things like Genetic Biology and General Chemistry to do fun things like art.
Until I find that magical book, I will enlist the help of talented graphic designers to make my world pretty. Gabrielle of Lacquerbird Wireworks is both a saint AND multi-talented. When I saw her gorgeous banner design on her shop (see the link above), I had to beg for her assistance. You can beg for her assistance, too, if you find her on Etsy shop above, or at her Flickr page.
The before, my clunky, rather frumpy own banner…
And voila, Gabrielle’s GORGEOUS makeover after:
I can’t believe how much this design makes me like the color pink! (It looks even better in the shop!) As I asked Gabrielle after it was done… “When did I become such a girlie girl?”
If you are among one of the chosen ones who can work this magic: kudos to you. Now show me your secrets.
