How John Nichol started their other graphic design journey

Company name

Curly-Hair-Styles-Magazine.com

Overview

I launched Curly-Hair-Styles-Magazine.com nearly six years ago as a sole proprietor with very little knowledge of the web and no knowledge at all of effective design.

In spite of its ordinary looks the site has built a substantial following in countries all over the world, and I want to give it an attractive, fun, professional look and feel.

My goal in launching the site was to achieve financial freedom for myself. I'm not there yet but I'm plugging away at it!

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

Women looking for ideas, advice, products and information about hair styles and hair care, especially but not exclusively women with naturally curly hair.

The site's fundamental idea is validation, acceptance and celebration of naturally curly hair. My audience consists to a large degree of women and girls who have struggled their whole lives with their natural hair texture - curly, wavy, frizzy, unmanageable, poofy, big, wild and frustrating hair - in a world that worships straight, sleek, silky locks.

Curly-haired women are tormented, teased and ridiculed for their appearance by straight-haired friends, acquaintances and strangers. Their hair is a huge part of their identity, and they have a lot of emotion invested in it.

They are very keen and often desperate to resolve the hair-related issues that have plagued their lives. They want acceptance for who they are, which very much includes their hair, and they want to know how to make their natural hair texture look good - glamorous, sexy, gorgeous.

Requirements

I've recently chosen the winning design for my site logo (attached is the transparent png file provided by the winning designer.) The original background was black and that looked brilliant.

The logo already says what I want visitors to know - ie, that the site is about curly hair looking gorgeous and desirable.

I need a header image that incorporates the logo without drawing attention away from the logo or diluting its message.

I'd like the header image to include the following text - but only if the text can be added without detracting from the logo itself:

"for curly hair styles and the people who love them"

The header image has to be 960 x 160 pixels, and it must, must, must do justice to the logo.
