bava branding update

So, I did a couple of Daily Creates yesterday and today, and wham just like that I feel like I stepped through a portal that brought me back to the generative internet of people and things. It’s amazing how far just a little bit goes when it comes to ds106. Anyway, I digress, the point of this post is that more than just a bitching t-short for the bava, thanks to Paul Bond I know have a snazzy new GIF and 13 rotating header images.


Paul embodies the riffing spirit of ds106, and after I was playing with the bavatuesdays band t-shirt logo, he decided to take it to the next level and create a GIF featuring a slideshow of shots from Mario Bava’s oeuvre. It’s pretty awesome, and a few of those images have been headers on the bava in year’s past, so I asked if he might be able to transforming the above font and images into a series of header images. And lo and behold, I have a brand new masthead for the b-est of blogs. Gotta keep up with the Cogdogblogsess recent rebranding effort!

So, this blog is now sporting a shorter, more streamlined series of lucky 13 headers featuring scenes from a wide variety of Mario Bava films. I couldn’t be happier with the new look, and I owe it all to a man named Bond, Paul Bond!

I just love the way the shots intermingle with the the letter outlines to create a set of font-like panels of Bava’s genius.

I also like the way Paul selected certain shots that highlight Bava’s amazing use of color and darkness all at once, the above header captures that perfectly.

And the very first header on the bava was the above shot from The Girl Who Knew Too Much with the  fright-filled eyes, screaming inside, “WHAT WILL HE WRITE ABOUT NEXT!!!” As more the web changes, the more I keep it the same. Thanks Paul, as Talky Tina would say, “You are a True Friend!” 🙂
