Photoshoppin’ fo’ sho

It’s been nearly two years since we blessed Wesleying with its
very first masthead, and we thought it could use a little revamp.

You may also have noticed that our favorites icon (that little picture you see in your location bar and bookmarks menu) is back.

    gonna go ahead and say the masthead is creeping towards projectionist’s –http://project.ioni.st/– which is another awesome blog (or tumble log, rather), so I’m not too upset about italso, its a pretty minimal change, nothing to get up-in-arms about. Still using wes’s annoying typeface (trajan).one last thought: since it seems that there is a lot of interest in this design crit, maybe its worth opening this up and asking for new masthead submissions. a competition perhaps? voting (or maybe not voting, most people don’t have good sense for design)just a though.

    This one looks really, really flat by comparison. It also looks kind of… unbalanced. Like an upside-down pyramid. Not much of a fan.

    9:57,I feel the same way about a lot of the comments that pop up on the blog. But this is something different cause it’s about a design issue rather than telling how the contributors should contribute, and it doesn’t feel like any of these commenters are really intending that effect of I-DEMAND-THAT-WESLEYING-DOES-WHAT-I-THINK/SAY ABOUT X.

    The old one was more compositionally balanced. I agree that the designer should reconsider the gray line.9:15 – What is wrong with engaging in constructive design critique in a public forum? Sharing an opinion about the new graphic doesn’t imply an under-appreciation of Wesleying.

    9:15 – when you use the font “small caps” and capitalize the first letters, they look like bigger caps.
