Thanks to my talented friend Hanna Kang-Brown, The Gifted Blog is getting a new look! I haven't updated my banner since switching over to Blogger, and a change has been sorely needed. Here's a sneak peek at 3 of the drafts she sent (click for larger view).
The width of my banner hasn't matched the body of the blog for several months now, and it was a task that was really nagging me. When Hanna offered her design skills, I was excited, but hesitant. I have had creative control over every last detail here from day one, and I wasn't sure what it would be like to give even a small bit of that up.
I decided to pray about it. Blogging has become a spiritual testing ground for me, a place where God is shaping the kind of person I am becoming. Will I ask for his input or do it my way? Do I really believe he's in control of my success? What does it mean to do this creative work "for him"? Long story short, I asked God for direction, heard a pretty intense verse, and decided to go for it!
I'm so glad I did. Hanna was able to take my rudimentary input and distill it into designs that I immediately resonated with. I'd love to know: which do you think should become The Gifted Blog's next banner?
