create web design and logo for blog page, web site landing page, subpages of website. Logo and design need to work for business cards, banner ads, widgets for other websites, printed materials, and pdf documents. Logo and website design need to reflect understanding of baby boomer psyche and values. Also, I need these things coded in wordpress so I can easily make blog updates.
