The artist in film, web and graphic design, Charles Ravndal has redesigned my blog using WordPress platform. The brand new look for RennyBA’s Terella really fits my theme I think; About Norway and the Nordic countries, our culture, traditions, history and habits – and even better than before. Of course I’m thrilled about the result and just had to make a post about it:

The new logo:
RennyBA's Terella - Avatar One example of Charles artistic design capability and with his own explanation: “This is a logo created for RennyBA’s Terella, a blog based in Norway. The symbol’s form was shaped after a terrella or terella (means Little Earth) which is a small magnetised model ball representing the Earth. The wave-like pattern inside shows the spiral movement of the terella and an abstract letter “R“. While the colours red, white and blue represent the colours found in the Norwegian flag. The font used in this logo is called Helvetica Rounded”.

From Blogger to WP & good to excellent:
I met Charles almost 5 years ago in Blogsphere and we soon we became good friends. Already at that time, he had an eye for special and characteristic blog design and soon he changed my blog from a dull, ordinary Blogger design, to something unique; The Norwegian look.
Then about two years ago, he helped me migrate to WordPress on my own domain name; Terella.no. Soon he suggested a brand new look, even more special, but still faithful to the theme of my blog. Here you see both of them:

Charles Ravndal: Geek is chic:
OsloBG2010 at RennyBAHe calls himself an ordinary guy from Bergen, Norway – to me he’s kind of special! As a film/multimedia design student at “Noroff Institute in Bergen” and currently freelancing, he is hunting for a stable design related position. I would say this design of my blog is a perfect proof of his talent and of course I give him my highest recommendations. If you like more facts about his skills:
He is Articulate in HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP and Actionscript in that order. Can Flash, Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, After Effects and Avid as well as ambidextrous with OS X and Windows.
