How to Create a Banner for Your Blog

Just like what mastheads are to newspapers and covers to books, so with blogs, it needs an interesting, no nonsense banner head.

Ways to Process a Banner Head Design

If your blog is in Tumbler, don’t settle for the default header image that Tumbler provides, create your own, one that suits you well with your readers in mind, and edit by using a banner maker app or using the settings from the desktop dashboard. Whichever is your decided process for creating the appropriate banner for your blog, you need to be prepared to work out the details, such as: your theme or brand identity, fonts of shapes and styles, kind of background, and the right images and graphics that can reflect your personality and thinking statement.

Tips in Creating Your Banner Head Image

A lot of people who reads blogs on a regular basis do recognize the effort that the author has done to create an interesting, eye-catching banner head image that shows originality and poetic presence. To look for high-quality stock photos, search graphic websites which provide quality photos and for free, and when you have picked the right photo, re-invent it by making it look original, uniquely created even if it looks familiar, and has a poetic message. As much as your intention in creating a banner head design is to interest further your readers, make sure that there is consistency that is found and felt in your blog space, such that your readers can see your thoughts and ideas through the graphic image of your banner head.

Horizontal Imaging

Since banner heads are normally presented on a horizontal position, when you have decided and re-created your chosen banner head image, see to it that the photo can be resized to expand horizontally. You may use the cropping method to create a horizontal image and resize it.

Making a Beautiful Background

Generally, a minimal white background is the most popular choice in the Tumbler market and in websites, as well, and here lies the challenge on how to decide what background color and design for the banner head can work out well for your blog. By investing time to see what better options can be chosen in looking for the appropriate background for your banner head, you can try the following measures: using banner maker apps or tumbler templates or researching through the internet on ideas for a beautiful background.

Give a Complete Run-Through for the Details

Be meticulous with the little details in your banner head creation, such as subtle textures, patterns, shadows in the right places, edge highlights, color shading, etc and by doing so, you’ll have created an interesting and well-thought of banner image for your blog.
