Business Name

When Children Help blog (www.whenchildrenhelp.com)

What do you do?

A new blog that follows a family as the parents document the follies and successes of their young children "helping" with various projects. Blog posts will have lots of photos, will be humorous, but will be balanced with thoughtful, thought-provoking posts. It will have a funny, positive, light feel to it. This is not a sarcastic mommy blog, but their will be plenty of wit.

Describe the target audience for your header design

The target audience of the blog will primarily be moms & dads in the 25-45 year-old age range. Likely many other mommy bloggers will follow the blog.

Does your header need to be a specific size?

No it does not

What is your industry?

Other

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your header design?

Funny (kids make some hilarious mistakes when they try to help their parents)
Positive (it's good that they help; parents are teaching the kids good values by helping)
Light (most blog posts will be conversational, not too serious)

What header design styles do you like?

Open to options

What colors do you want to see in your header design?

Open to options, though would like to keep it fairly bright, light.

What colors do you NOT want to see in your header design?

open to everything

What adjectives should best describe your header design?

Funny, casual, light.

What content must be included in the header design?

Website Name: When Children Help
Tag Line: Raising Helpers. Quitting Chores.

Do you have additional requirements or links you'd like to share?

Here are some ideas, though these are definitely not requirements:
- Text would be a more casual script, maybe the last letter, or word, done in a way that would indicate a child "helped" write that word
- Graphic of some sort to the right of the site name, showing a mother accomplishing (or trying to accomplish) something, only to be undone/ruined by the helping child (like planting a garden, with the child digging up the plants right behind Mom as she is planting, or other like tasks); see attached pics for what Mom and kids look like;
