I have created a new header logo but i am still undecided on the border radius for my icons, although i think i may leave them at 10px for now. I have re designed the icons images and added new icons for my blog and linked in pages. I created these using illustrator. Once i made them i had another fiddle around with my logo and decided on this new one as i like it being colourful. I now feel as though my site is lacking something but i cant work it out, so i’ve decided that maybe it’s the background.
I have used the shapes i used with my logo to create a background for now, i changed the opacity to 10% and at the moment i’m quite happy with it, although im not sure it fits with my website or if its too distracting. I’m going to look back at it later and make my decision then. At the moment i think the background takes away from the small links and interactivity i have implemented within my site, which may not be such a good idea.
