Think Like a User
I am a usability professional and this is my company blog.
I specialise in helping companies fix the concept behind their website by making it more customer focused and intuitive to use.
I have taken an informal corporate tone on my blog
Small to medium sized businesses who want to communicate more effectively online with their prospects and customers.
People who want to improve the user experience of the website (although they won't use the word "user experience")
People who know their website sucks, but aren't too sure why or what to do about it.
Banner.jpg and banner.psd show the general theme I am looking for.
I need blog header for the thesis template for wordpress with 930 px, with a maximum height of 250-300px.
My site is accessible and lets the visitor change the screen font size, so the header needs to fade to white at the lefthand and righthand edges, so it handles fluid layout.
The image needs to indicate that usability is all about user-centered design principles. - i.e. reviewing a website based on the feelings it creates for the visitor when they use it.
The audience is corporate, but I don't want tired pictures of smiling business people shaking hands in brightly lit offices :).
The blog has a man's silhouetted head as the logo which needs to be incorporated in some way - as the logo appears as a watermark on some of my videos etc.
The header *must* communicate what my company does, not just look nice/professional.
I use non-serif fonts throughout the site.
I have attached some images to help with the colour palette and show you what exists already, and the logo.
It has to be less than 100-150kb when complete - the smaller the better. Any file format is OK (gif/jpg/png) as long as the quality is ok.
Thanks for helping me :)
