The Endless Weekend.
I am a Photographer, Sailor, and World Traveler. This summer I will embark on a trip around the world that will take me to 26 countries. I am creating my blog and website before i leave so i can post HDR photos and Hd video each day. This is not the first time I have run away someplace exotic.
I got on a plane when I turned 18 and moved to the caribbean with 300 dollars in my pocket. I am becoming one of the worlds experts in lifestyle coaching and am writing a book.
If you would like more about me and my story please the attached article entitled Stealing Time. You can also look at a rough draft of the table to content of the book in the file called table of contents.
My audience will consist of travelers,backpackers,sailors and people who dream about freedom. Here are 2 sites that have the same type of audience i will be going after.
I am interested in a header with a travel, adventure theme or just the name and tag line in a cool way similar to cris guillebeau.
Please read the requirement in the attached pdf and check out the jpgs in files.
I am very interested in the same audience that stuck in customs has but not the same header they have. The reason i am including the site is that i will be using the same dimensions they have for my blog.
My site will look almost the same as far as the layout as http://www.stuckincustoms.com/. It will have a blog layout with the exact same dimensions for the center and the side bar on the right. I measured it at about 1225 pixels across. That would be a good size for my header also. I actually am not a big fan of how the header looks on stuck in customs and i don't intend to use the same color scheme he does on his website. I intend to keep my website looking clean so my photos can stand out more. I will use light colors like white and grey on the borders and sides of the blog however i am open on what colors to use in the header.
I would like a header designed that says the name The Endless Weekend
with a optional tag line that says Adventures in Freedom, Travel and Lifestyle Mastery.
I am open to how to present this. It can be a bold way to say the name such as a neat font against a white background. One of my favorite designers is a man called http://www.fabienbarral.com/. I am including jpg's in the files of print's that he did that i think look neat. If we are going to go with a simple look i like the look of print on a light colored or white paper. I think it gives it more texture.
Feel free to incorporate maps compasses airplanes passport stamps into your design but try to keep it looking clean still. The name should still come across, as well as a color scheme of some kind so i can build a website around it.
