Hal, I just love that original Electronic Cottage logo that's on the main page now. Is that your design or did someone else do that? Anyway, I would love to see this site take on more of the look of the original EC print zine. Not trying to replicate it, mind you, but carrying on some of that underground zine aesthetic.
William, the original ELECTRONIC COTTAGE logo was designed by Sue Ann Harkey in 1989. It was the masthead on the front of all six issues of the original zine. Yesterday whilst looking for this logo I found numerous EC documents, which I will be posting on the LEGACY page. I will gladly accept your assistance in creating some underground print zine vibe and aesthetic. Your designs and graphics are always welcome!
Ah yes, I remember Sue Ann Harkey (just googled her, she's still active and has a bandcamp page with a bunch of releases). She did a great job on that logo! I'll think about design elements for the site.
Really like the "new at EC" section on the home page. Very helpful! Might be nice if the items in the "new at EC" section included the dates when they were added.
Good suggestion! Done!
As much as I love seeing my collage being used on the site (let's face it, the more W.A.Davison the better, right?), I think you should go back to Sue Ann Harkey's art for the logo/masthead. I like seeing the old EC logo at the top of every page. Just seems to work. The EC collage I created might be better used somewhere else on the main page, or elsewhere on the site.
William, you're right about this too. I changed it back. Any logo that goes in the upper left needs to be a fairly skinny rectangle to fit the page properly. I will find a good place for your collage.
Looking good! I know the site overhaul is still in progress but, right away there's a big improvement. The Harkey masthead with the smaller font navigation bar underneath looks great! Looking forward to seeing what else develops.
