What do you think? Do you like the new, semi-strange color scheme?
In case you were wondering, I aim to recolor the blog every season or two - part of the allure of the design I was thinking. I am using the Pantone color guide to help me. Since I am a wanna-be-designer, you will have to consult this Wikipedia entry to explain Pantone and their expertise a la color.
According to Pantone, this is this fall's color guide. I used just a portion of this season's colors. And since I am a wanna-be, I still have a long way to go to 100% color match. But, I tried. And I am happy. Or at least, I think the colors look interesting. Slightly different. Unexpected. And less perky than they were before. Not that I don't like perky; I just prefer less perky colors to roll into winter.
I'm curious, which colors would you have chosen? Maybe in the spring, we can have a contest to recolor Upcycled Education using the 2013 color guide. Interested?
PS - In case you can't remember what the blog header used to look like, here is the before/summer blog header:
Now, the after/fall-into-winter blog header:
Which is your favorite? I might like them both.
