New Logo and 35 smashing Header Images

I am quite a restless kinda guy, and I can’t stand stagnation. Whatever that meant. Here it is. Ladies and Gentlemen, please give the loudest of your applause, for the new OKS Logo that I designed using GIMP. It took me 30 minutes, 3 tweets and two replies to arrive at this logo.

Here’s the Big one:

And the small one used for circulation across various social networks etc. will be:-

And in this process of redesign, I had started to make a crazy amount of header images. As you might have noticed, that the header image are randomly rotated. And this is possible to a simple code I included in my header.php file. Without going into the technical details, here are the 35 smashing header images.

  2. I used Photoshop 10 CS3 to create the logos and Arcsoft Photostudio for the headers. With Arcsoft, the mergin of images is a breeze, and unfortunately, I haven't seen a similar feature in any of other image editng softwares. I got that software with my camera's software CD. If you have any friends who have bought a Canon or Panasonic camera recently, they should have it.

    As for the logo, I just used custom fonts available for free at: 1001freefonts.com
    Just download the font, install it in Windows/Mac.

    I guess that helps.
