On my “wouldn’t that be rad sometime” wishlist: I’d really like a professionally designed logo for GodlessGirl.com; some help brainstorming other features for this site and fiddling with the template; and a matching re-do of my twitter background and avatar internet-wide.

cartoon girl avatarSpeaking of my avatar: I have a soft spot for my faceless cartoon girl. She’s anonymous like me, rather cute, and easily recognizable. I’m just not sure if I should stick with her. I threw her together last-minute when I needed an image for twitter back in ’09. Is she really a part of the Godlessgirl image? I’ve used the same avatar everywhere since I started this persona? I’m not sure how important she is to recognition and all that whatnot. Anyway, why am I harping on a stupid image?

The logo actually means something to me. I’d like to build a cohesive “look” to my site, but since I love changing the template once in a while, I’d like something that will grow with me and fit a few different looks.

If you’re interested in helping me, I’d like the text in Comic Sans with a Papyrus font change on mouseover. Also, if it could glitter like this and maybe make a sort of “glass crashing” noise when you click on it, that’d be soooooo cool. My goal is to gain exposure on this site.

Toodles!

I personally love the website the way it is. Everything flows nicely it’s actually pleasurable too look at, very easy on the eye. Your ‘faceless girl’ I think is your logo, your brand of sorts very recognizable and simple and clean. This is your site after all, feel free to do as you wish but I love it. My personal opinion I love the font change idea, but no glitter. Websites with that kind of stuff are really cheesy and it sticks out like a sore thumb. Right now you look very professional and well put together. That being said over at my blog I have done a fair amount of tinkering in my HTML to great success, am I a pro? No, far from it but if no one else better offers to help I’d be happy too.

Well, this is a clean precise and persistent logo/avatar you have used for as long as any of us have known you. I think by now you would have guessed that i would say, don’t change it, unless you would really like to. Now i did notice that you have been a bit more outspoken lately, something i noted with great delight. So if that is the kind of change you want to reflect, than obviously i can’t disagree with that.

I agree with Mark – this site has a very nice look to it.

    You literally just asked for 3 things that trained graphic designers LOATHE: comic sans, papyrus (quite possibly the most hated font in the design world), and glitter graphics. So either you’d like your new logo to be funny/ironic or you really just want an ugly logo. If it’s the latter, good luck finding someone to make a “professionally designed” logo with those stipulations. (love your blog by the way!)

      I think it spoils the fun to spell out that it was a joke. Ah well. I don’t want to be accused of poor taste!

        It’s okay–I got a laugh out of it 😀

I think your website looks great as is! Logos evolve – you’ll change it when you know you’ve found something perfect. I like the template too, but I understand the urge for change. I recently fiddled with mine – finally went with a lighter background after 3 years of dark.

If you like, I could try to design some sort of logo for you. I’m only an amateur but I’d do the best I can for free.

Aw, don’t get rid of faceless girl. I like her just the way she is!

Going with the crowd. I like the site as it is. Pleasant, memorable, modern, and with Faceless Girl, it keeps just a bit of humor to it without being tacky or amateur.

If you redesign though…I think instead of crashing glass noise you should use a toilet flushing with the volume doubled. And definitely make sure that papyrus font is bubbled and underlined with hot pink. And when you click it, it can install pop up ads for yoga videos taped in Spanish.

    Godless Girl · December 6, 2010 at 9:40 am

    I’m totally on board with the yoga and hot pink. You totally get my style!

You can’t get rid of the faceless girl avatar! I love her!!! She is who my internet persona dreams of every night!!

Xtine · December 6, 2010 at 6:59 pm

Oooo…. not to be crass, but the more love I see for “faceless girl” avatar, the more I wonder… maybe the way it is phrased – “faceless girl” is getting me riled up. Am I turning into a femi-nazi under your very faceless-girl’s eyes?!?! 🙂
