#25 - design a logo

Your logo gives the first graphical impression of your Web site and it plays a key role in how your viewers perceive your site. Here's where you make your boldest statement! Take the time to design a logo that quickly creates that mood of your site. Try different designs, and don't quit until you're satisfied.

Some of the traditional rules for logo design apply to the Web. Your logo should be bold and easy to read. Choose a font that is appropriate for your theme. Try to create a logo that prints clearly, because sometimes people will print copies of your Web pages.

I recommend using the height and width HTML tags:

<img src="logo.gif" height=Y width=X>

This will allow the browser to layout and draw the outline of the logo immediately, and the whole screen will not shift when the logo is being drawn.

Have fun with your logo!
