How Alejandro Tarre started their other graphic design journey

Company name

my site is alejandrotarre.com

Overview

I am writer/journalist that writes fiction, essays, articles, book reviews, etc. I designed my website to put in one place everything I write.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

I write a lot about Latin American politics, so my audience should be hungry-for-politics newspaper-reading people who closely follow Latin America. Wish I could be more precise but I haven't polled my audience yet. However, I don't necessarily want a design that says "I love politics".

Requirements

-The uploaded image should be 960x140 (960px wide by 140px high)

-I want something simple, smart and elegant, but not pretentious (I don't want pencils, ink, newspaper print or pens). I want the banner to work very well with the rest of the web site (colors, design, gray part below the banner, etc).

-The main text should say "alejandrotarre.com" (like it says now), but you can use my name Alejandro Tarre (in addition to the main text) if you think it would help your design.

-Not too crowded or too busy. I am inclined towards a less-is-more approach.

-In regards to color, I would guess I am inclined towards a black/white/gray design. But I would love to see some touches of color that harmonize smoothly with the rest of the website and makes it more lively.

Again, my objective is that the website works well as a whole and is very pleasing to see -wherever that leads in terms of color. I don't know if there is a way designers can do this, but I would like to see how the banner works with the rest of the site (not just the banner).

PLEASE, read my comments in the designs that have already been submitted.

UPDATE: I am seeing a lot of grey-and-grey designs (the banner is grey and the part below the banner is also grey). This is not a requisite!
