In 2009 I committed to changing my masthead every month because I always grew so weary with my site design. What I was really bored with was the concept, not so much the colors or layout. So I decided to switch out my masthead monthly so it would feel fresh each month. Turns out, it was a great idea. What I didn't expect was to feel such sadness at the end of each month when it was time for a change. But as I embarked on each new design, I began to fall in love with the new ideas and had a blast developing them.
Each masthead holds a glimpse into the challenges and growth that Loki & Juno faced over the last year. Each time I think I can choose one which is my favorite, I change my mind and choose another. Because they all mean so much to the challenges they've overcome in one simple artistic statement.
