Web versus Print

One thing that I’m learning quickly as I continue working on my site is that Web design is definitely different than print design. I’ve purchase several stock photos to use as the header to the site—antique wooden letters, watercolor paint blocks, and the like. However, although each image is beautiful as the header it doesn’t convey the image or “idea” of my site to a potential visitor. It seems that flatter images work better—at least for the header. My task this weekend is to peruse some other blogs that have been suggested to me as being designed well and get a sense of what they’re doing.

Nonetheless, I’m having lots of fun tinkering!
