I need a masthead design for my Mail Chimp newsletter. I thought we could focus the masthead design on either the name of my newsletter (Beers News & Story Brews), the name of my website (Writing with Beers), or on the tagline for my opt-in pop-up (Got chuckle?), but I'm open to ideas. If you feel like my logo needs a little makeover, give it a shot. I need a masthead that says, "Ooh, I want to look through this newsletter." It needs to be something that catches peoples' attention.
I've attached a logo, screenshot of where the masthead would go, and a screenshot of the opt-in pop-up that may be useful for generating some design ideas. I've attached several masthead designs that catch my attention. I want a masthead that does what the examples do - they catch my attention, they look appealing, and they make me want to check out the newsletter content.
I don't really need my logo to be on the masthead (it can be but it doesn't have to be) but the masthead should follow the same theme (color, etc) as my website. Feel free to incorporate the logo if you feel it would work but matching fonts etc.
