amazing facebook cover photosI love simple, clean design. 

When I first renovated my room, I had only a table & a mattress with no frame.

I just couldn’t find the right bed.

It took 2 years to find the perfect piece of furniture. My best friend Henry says my room looks like a jail cell.

He’s right, sorta — but I still like the simplicity of it all. :)  

And my love for simple design extends to awesome Facebook cover photos — where I use only the most minimal of design techniques.

Here’s a recent example of a cover photo from one of my pages:

I hunted for the most simple & clean designs I could find — something subtle that sent a very strong message.
