You may have noticed my new website header image. I changed the font from the Bauhaus 93 font that I’ve been using for the last three years on the K5ND image to Dokyo. I came across this font while working on a new QSL card that you can see here.

My latest QSL card design. Used three images created in Photoshop.

I’ve been doing a lot of work lately using photoshop as well. This QSL card design uses three images that were either created or modified in Photoshop. Now don’t get the idea that I’m a wizard with Photoshop. Mostly I find the files available on the web, usually at no charge, and then I start modifying them to suit my requirements and designer’s eye. Well, perhaps my designers eye isn’t the best, but I do get to build something that is my very own creation.

By the time you read this, I may have swapped the website header back to the earlier design. Dokyo seems to work well on the bright image on the QSL card but not as well in the dark, metallic image in the header. We’ll see if I get used to it or modify it still further. Stay tuned!

  1. Well, after swapping a couple of different fonts onto the header, I came back to the Dokyo font. I tweaked the PhotoShop image to be brighter for both the K5ND and the CW waveform. Works for me!

What do you think?
