No, you are not in the wrong place. This is the same old i could cry but i don’t have time with a whole new look.
Yes, this is a tale of the shoemaker’s kids having no shoes. Believe it or not, this blog has been around since 2008. And yes, I was a graphic designer without branding. I liked to think of it as my rebellion against too many decades in the business. You know, like the fashionista who goes out in sweatpants just to prove she is not shallow.
Actually that is a horrible analogy and the real reason this blog never carried a designed header is because:
a] I was lazy
b] I was never happy with anything I designed for it
c] I was lazy
d] I had commitment probems
e] all of the above
oh and f] I was lazy
Anyway, I bit the bullet, took the plunge, reveled in the fact that I did not toss out that fabulous book of archival drawings in the big office purge and today I bring you the newly branded, jam master i could cry but i don’t have time. (maybe i should change the name to i could design but i don’t have time – but that would not be clever or funny, for that matter)
Ah… change and commitment. Neither are ever comfortable but this was long overdue. I hope I don’t wake in the middle of the night and regret this. (prone to drama)
I am still playing with theme design but this is a start. If you have any comments, critiques, suggestions or opinions… keep them to yourselves.
Just kidding, I would love to hear what you think.
Oh, and for those of you on email subscription who don’t want to click over to the web and see this baby in real life, here is what the logo looks like:

Love it. How about having the tear drop coming off of the y?
funny Neal, that is where it started but it was to low and looked weird.
What Uncle Neal said. Also, will you brand my blog? Seriously. Let me know how much you would charge.
J, I am flattered! email me and we can chat.
Nice job and you didn’t even share. I love the surprise
Like it. FYI– the Find Lauren section is not displaying correctly on IE.
Way to keep it fresh, Amy!
