Through non-conventional means, I met a designer who lives in rural Ohio, and I really dig her work. I hired her to do icons for the next version of POP Forums, and they were pretty sweet.
So I hired her again to do a logo and design for my "corporate" Web site. I don't really need it, exactly, as much as I wanted to do something that simply wasn't me. So we agreed on a fair price for the work, and she cranked it out.
I'm happy with the result. I hope to post the new design soon. As much as I think I know what I like, design is not my strong point. It's good to get someone else in there to do something cool and different. Hopefully I can use her for some other things I have in mind.
