Wizbang Redesign Update

A while back I mentioned that the much delayed redesign at Wizbang is back on track thanks to Sadie and Phin at Apothegm Designs. We're still hard at work on the new layouts, but I did want to give you a draft preview of a portion of the new header.

One of the goals is to move content up the page and better utilize space, while retaining a unique and stylish look. I think we're well on on our way toward that goal.

More updates soon...

LifeTrek:

I like it professional and sharp, but please capitalize the W. I hate it when someone goes all out to be professional but fail to follow one simple rule that helps bring respect to a brand.

RickH:

I like the look as well, although when looking at it for too long one can see the muslim crescent and star, but that is probably because I have been reading about the way they are trying to "honor" the victims of the Pennsylvania flight and also because I look at everything way too closely.

Please put the bang back on the logo. Something about that '!' makes me laugh, like it's making the 'bang' louder or something :). Other than that, it's very nice!

Ooh, also, dot the I with that lit fuse. That would look cool. And try to work in a picture of Bucky Katt from that 'Get Fuzzy' comic strip. He tests well on the east coast.

And it never hurts to add a little Homer Simpson. Here, I did it for you. Feel free to use it if you want.

throwing in bucky from "get fuzzy" was pure and utter genius Kevin M.

Hershey:

Kevin M I dig your design minus the cartoons. I like the dotted I with the "bang" as some have called it. I would also say Wizbang not wizbang.

Candy:

Kevin, after being a parent for almost 20 years and doing web design for about two years, as well as a host of other things in life, I know this: if you ask ten people their opinion on something like this, you'll get ten answers. I shudder to think how many opinions you'll get here, and there is NO pleasing us all!

(My two cents worth is that I LOVE it, and I love the small "w". It looks great. But do whatever YOU like - it's YOUR blog.)

I was just kidding of course. I had a bucky katt all chopped out of the cartoon and needed a picture to put him in is all :)

Even without a giant homer head, Mr. Aylward's pic is very nice.

I always wondered what that thing was around the "W" in your logo. Doh...

Very cool, though I'd cap the "W", add a degrading, shaded colorfill inside the bomb, and pick a different font.

Other than that? Golf claps!

Jay Tea, thanks for making me spit coffee all over my screen!

I gotta fever! A fever for more cowbell!

Kevin, it looks great, as a daily reader I'm looking forward to the new design.

New tagline to replace "Explosively Unique": "Blood for Odin!"
