Alice, ksirminoh, Andrew, et al.
Glad you enjoy them! Thanks for the feedback!
Thanks for your feedback! I appreciate all feedback because it pushes me to grow.
Site graphics don't add value to the content
, but they can be used to represent the principles
behind the content. When Steve added the Truth/Love/Power pyramid to the header, I thought it was a brilliant idea, albeit a bit rough. So, inspired by his new header, I went into Photoshop, revised it, and published it here uncopyrighted.
The bottom line is, I think Steve is one of the brilliant writers of our time. And I don't say this lightly. I can't imagine how many years it took to really hone-in on Truth, Love, and Power as the fundamental principles of growth, and I know they belong in whatever site graphics he uses.
I've seen firsthand how the use of geometry, ratios, and balance can change how a site is felt by the user, as well as how memorable it is. I think Steve realizes this, too. So this project was an attempt to bring Steve's graphic design up to the same incredible level as his writing, but in a way that resonated with him. (Kind of a tall order, but I like challenges)
He hasn't said anything about the latest iteration yet, but I'm going to keep periodically throwing pancakes at the wall until something sticks; because I love this site, and I love this project. And if Steve ever tells me I've finally hit on something that resonates with him, that's wonderful and he can have it uncopyrighted.
If not, well, that's life.
However, Andrew is right. I welcome constructive criticism
