New Year, New Look

No one likes change.

I've made the decision to change notamodel's main logo. I know everyone, including myself has become attached to my original photo with Miss. Heidi Klum. (Fun Fact: many people are shocked when I tell them Heidi is the one on my shirt. I've heard people say the model looks like Britney Spears, Sienna Miller, you name it)

My decision is based upon the fact that soon I will start searching for an internship. Future employers will have to visit my blog to get a better sense of who I am online.

I've always said that if someone wouldn't hire me based on a photo then I'm probably not a good fit with their company. However, a half naked woman flipping the bird probably doesn't scream "professionalism."

I hope you like my new logo. It was taken around 3 years ago by the talented Stefania Sgambelluri when she was in her college photography program. I'm also proud to say that I edited the logo using Adobe Photoshop all on my own. I find Photoshop to be a very intimidating and confusing program but with a new version and some time, I sat there, played around and taught myself.

I also changed the blog layout to a wider view so I can fit more photos and longer text. I'm happy with the changes and I hope that my writing is the real reason you readers connect with me!

If you're still mourning Heidi & I, you can find the full original photo here.

  6. As much I love the old pic, you're right to go with something that won't freak out prospective employers. BUT - just a suggestion - you should consider getting your own domain name if you want to look more professional. Google/blogger will hook you up for ten bucks a year. Not half bad, right? Cost of a latte! Anyways, kudos to all the great posts so far, look forward to reading more.
