I’ve been working on some updates for the Tempo Lush website, like the new blog header above.
One fun but incredibly tricky element of tweaking the site was making a new favicon. For those who don’t know, and trust me – I didn’t until I really had to, a Favicon is the tiny icon that appears next to the web address in many internet browsers (certainly in Safari and Firefox). The trick is to get an image into a 16 pixel squared space. It’s kind of like the graphic design equivalent of writing your name on a grain of rice.
For my favicon I depicted my character Lucy the Octopus listening to some kick ass tunes on her favourite over sized headphones. For those of you reading this on a browser that displays favicons you can see the 16 pixel version in the address bar now, but here’s a larger version to see Lucy in all her pixelated glory!
