Our customers and subscribers love the feel of our existing template. However, it's time to refresh/simplify/beautify/modernize it.
We want to keep the "feel" of the theme to be: lighthearted, joyous, and playful. Mystical, stars, light, universe, celestial, whimsical, joyous colors, a sense of child like wonder or joy. Magick, Spells, Enchantment, Images and words of creative transformation.
We love a feeling/look of the universe/night sky/moon/stars. We must have that Magickal sparkle!
On the Rose Ariadne cartoon and header/text area. This will be re-done into a proper logo in a different contest. Please leave space in the upper left corner of the design for us to include a new logo later. It will be about 350X100.
To the right of this logo space, I'd like a line of beautiful Magickal text which is our tagline, "... because everyone needs a little Magick in their life."
Not a big header at all... this tagline will be positioned right after the 350X100 logo area.
So you will have 100px HIGH from the top of the screen to where the menubar starts to put in this text and give us a Magickal feel with some sort of stars/moon/cosmos background. (No Magick Chests or Faeries please. :) )
Color scheme can be: bright, yet soft pastel color scheme - but still darker and more "witchy" than most sites. :) I can see the site having the colors of dawn, that time of evening just as the moon and stars are coming out. The purple and black colors could be fine.
Font will be critical. We must have a mystics/witchy looking font, but it also must be VERY readable. Readability is very important. Easy on the eyes, but also part of the theme.
Simplicity is also the key here. It should be easy to navigate, not too complex, simple, clean, mystical, celestical look and feel!
