Blog Headers For Free Download


One month ago we’ve asked our readers1 to help us create a gallery of blog header graphics which every designer could use for free and without any restrictions whatsoever. We’ve announced a Header Graphics Contest and now, one month later, it’s time to present the most interesting, creative and beautiful works we’ve received.

38 graphic designers and artists participated; as a result we’ve received over 100 truly outstanding entries. The best ones are displayed below. Some of the participants will be randomly awarded with Poser 7, Anime Studio, and Manga Studio provided by Smith Micro Graphics2. Participants, please stay tuned — we’ll contact the winners within the next 24 hours.

This post presents the results of the contest — 45 beautiful blog header designs you can use for free. Below the designers have described their themes, intentions and shown us some examples of how header graphics can be used.

Please notice that

  • often also the source image (.ai or .psd) can be downloaded,
  • all images are clickable and lead to the full-size image of the header,
  • full-size images have the resolution of 850×200 px,
  • and you can also download graphics together with source files using corresponding links in the description.

The Lighthouse Project

“The Lighthouse Project” was brainchild of mine to do a daily blog of testimonies from the Christian walk to encourage others through life’s trials. Though the blog is not up, I thought it best to start with an awesome header graphic for the artistic direction on how the rest of the site should be designed. I wanted to go with an “urban” theme using a lot of vector and photo combinations like what a lot of the graphic artists are doing today. Tracey Jackson19, Miami, Florida, USA.

[R] Evolution

“For this Design I wanted not just to create a banner that could be used in any kind of blog like music, personal thoughts, design, philosophy, science, history or any other, but also passing through a deep meaning. There are some questions about humanity that really intriguing me since my early days. Where do we come from? Where are we going? And what is our mission here.

The banner concept is not trying to give an answer for these questions, but is actually trying to reflect these questions on user’s subconscious. So I developed the evolution idea to reflect our mission as humans. From left to right I try to show some steps of evolution process, since prehistoric history until these days.

All big changes in human history were produced by revolutions. For that fact I Use [R] incorporated in the title. So users can read evolution and at the same time also read revolution. Evolution-Revolution. Revolution can also be noted in the design with the revolutionary Flag contradicting with the peace symbol within, French soldiers and the atomic bomb. All evolution process is being pushed by an elephant, which is a strong animal that exists from a long time ago. This idea is to create movement and consequently reflect the questions where do we come from? And where are we going? The elephant baby is also there to represent the different generations along the evolution path.

On the right side of the banner there’s a glimpse of what I believe will be the future. Human mind uses just 15% of his brain capacities, so when humans will use 100% I’m sure we can easily travelling around the universe 10 times or more the speed light, conquering new worlds… This fact is presented by the astronaut starting traveling to the universe (present) and the UFO on the top dropping small spaceships (future connections). For enhance mystery I used a blue light.

This banner is better viewed in a black background.” Designed by João Filipe Cunha12712312011524, Portugal.

“I think about a header graphic as a start of a page, like to start a conversation – so the idea was born. We all start a (good) talk with an easy greeting – so why don’t use this for a website? after trying some stuff i decided to keep the design as simple as the idea – so I used lovely RNS Baruta Black. Simple and clean, but also interesting and playful.

“What inspired The Sexiest Dirty Underground theme was a chance to explore some new styles. I’m very pleased with the results and I’ll be exploring these techniques even more. I’ll be finishing The Sexiest Dirty Underground header theme on my blog to bring the total to 20 headers in the next two weeks. For Rich-Bitch-Fish, Co-op-Bone, and Woman-Confident I used the process of first sketching on paper, then working with illustrator, and finally finishing in Photoshop. I’ll be explaining the process more indepth on my website coming soon.

My favorite headers from this theme are City-Under-Heat, New-Tech-Earth, and Woman-Confident-Fear.” Designed by Jimmy R.43, Manitoba, Canada.

This is what came out after more than an hour of mad photoshop and illustrator play-around, the whole themes were greatly influenced by my brother’s ear candy crave on Mika’s “Happy Ending” and my personal fave on young Youtube star Daniel Talevski’s “Rocket and Go”. Lots of stock images were used from across the Web, with massive blending, be it softlight, multiply, overlay in addition of some vector shapes, brush tools, photoshop patterns from Designed by Mikel D.Lian68 a.k.a splashmilk from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

This Is How It Feels

full view74 | download75 (0.9 Mb)
The ideas are quite simple. Valentines soon, so I got this idea of making this header. Each of them represents feelings as it is presented in ways such as the graphics itself, colors etc. I made all the images my self. Just got them after compiling all my artworks from my artbag and then I just simply paint them using Photoshop.

Back to the feelings, I may make a list of definitions for it.

  • On the left side, the girl with plaster glued on her mouth means she cant say what she actually want to say. you know, sometimes people just cant spit the words out when someone likes this person.
  • Then, you can see these two couples, from this, I use colors to symbolize feelings. green is for envy and red is for desire. every couple fights — obviously. But in the end, they still love each other anyway. you can see it from the faces (the couple graphic).
  • And that sheep, it’s symbolizes a female. You might laugh about this, but its true! Sheeps fur is soft, like girls, soft on the outside but then you see the real deal inside. The reason I place the sheep like that is to show how girls can just simply make the guy fall for her and be the queen in just one blink.
  • And for the background, its just some doodles I made at my science class last 2 years, I think it fits this whole thing don’t you think?

I have used different brushes from Aivult itself and symbols of vector from there as well. The brushes were used to create the flowers along with few splashes of paint. Then the sunburst effect in the background was used from one of its tutorials in order to come up with a creative vector header. Designed using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop and was possible by hand and head co-ordination of one8edegree. Created by AiVault80, One8edegree, Pakistan.

It’s the header graphic of my actual blog Sublog.ch84. The design is a collage of pictures I took some time ago and some free city landscape pics I found on the net, combined with some graphic elements. I used some grungy photoshop brushes to destroy the edges. The Swiss mountains at the bottom reflect a typical element of my homeland.

The contrast to the clean Swiss image is the grungy design and the city landscapes which are overlayed with a hard blend mode. a connection to the web and the modern world is made with the typo elements. I used a very clean, technical font called eurostile. Designed by Pascal Greuter85, Switzerland.

The colors have been inspired by Mother Earth and her best friend, Nature. I draw real intricate designs on books and I always wanted to include this talent of mine into my website. Though I am creative I do not have anybody to guide (I guess this is the case with most designers).

I was not sure of how to incorporate my talent into the web media, luckily I stumbled on your website where I found links to amazing designs and tutorials. Every time I look at the stunning designs I would open up my Photoshop and Illustrator. Since I work full time, my website is not complete as I get to work only during my free time. Photoshop has always been my canvas to my creative work hence I have included the Photoshop toolbar in my design. Designed by Savitha Shivaram100, India.

Based on your Illustrator tutorial about how to create a blob monster I developed the idea of creating a monster family which I called the Monsteck Variketch Family. This family is just starting to invade the city. Their names, from left to right are: Vermistech, Vaitistech, Bilistech, Piriastitech and Kapastech. For the design concept I used a grunge and urban styles. This banner can be used in a big variety of blogs. Designed by João Filipe Cunha12712312011524, Portugal.

The Magic Box

full view117 | download118 (jpg + psd + ai, 3.1 Mb)
This banner was created under the idea of the surprise element and good feelings when someone opens a gift on their birthday or in Christmas time. The moment of opening and discovering the gift it’s in my personal opinion a magic moment. That magic moment can be also translated to blogs, when we anxiously wait for a new post in some interesting blogs.

So I tried to show that magic moment in the design, creating a kid discovering the new toys, and from the open box is getting out the energy that creates that magic mood. A very soft pastels color palette was used to create a very soft moment of magic. Designed by João Filipe Cunha12712312011524, Portugal.

Untitled Dream

This banner was created for those dreamers out there. The idea was to create a dreaming environment, transforming the impossible possible. I came out with a sky landscape and in the top of a cloud there’s the dream focus. A natural landscape with some animal’s, flowers and ornaments. Mixing photography with illustration emphases the dreaming idea. Designed by João Filipe Cunha12712312011524, Portugal.

The main purpose of blogs is to share ideas, or ‘cultivating’ ideas in this big garden that we call the Web. So based on this idea I created this concept. I used an orchid which is my favorite flower; actually Orchids are my other passion. Is not just about the different shapes and colors that makes them another pretty flower, but yet what makes the reigning magic of the orchid is their invisible power of communication. I also used the tree and flower ornaments to reinforce the ‘cultivating’ idea. Some soul tech brushes were used to represent the Web as the main garden of ideas.

Nuestra Señora

“This is a header graphic for my friend’s blog. This is how she initially described it to me: “I have decided on a name for the blog: Nuestra Señora. It is adapted from Los Angeles’ original name: Pueblo de la Nuestra Señora Reina de los Angeles del Río de Porciúncula. Plus it is feminine. I think it suits the blog. I am not sure if other people use the same name on their blogs.

So the concept for the blog is: Los Angeles city politics infused with pop culture. I want to provide a counter-perspective to the city from a life-long Angelino and integrate art, culture, fashion, and more. But again, its all about how the city is changing, I want to be a cynic but also a resource. The blog should be an artifact. I need to write and be creative. The more I think about it, the more I want multiple blogs, but maybe we can do that later or make tabs on the blog page itself. I would like to talk about US politics, the world, pop culture, gossip, everything that encompasses my daily life.” Designed by Betsy Chang, USA.

    wow, great resource, nice to see the psds with them too

  4. 4

    Some great headers in there, although I’m surprised it’s mostly grungy stuff. Do I see a shift in SmashingMagazine?

  5. 5

    Great inspirational headers. Some of these may even be used for my own blog somewhere in the future. But the best part, the psd’s… that means you can really learn something.

  6. 6

    The best part is them being free+PSD, thus you can modify them as you wish and not find it somewhere else.
    Thank you for this SM !

    I was afraid maybe there weren’t enough to publish.
    Turns out there were so many it’s hard to count them all.
    Thanks to everyone who entered one.
    If you don’t use them verbatim, you can always make an “inspired” original one.
    They are free!

    What a cool contest. All the work looks great and it’s wonderful to hear about each individual’s personal process for getting to the final design. The headers that respond to the site visitor’s expectations when they visit a blog are interesting. Are they expecting to be engaged in a conversation, to be reading news, to be invited into someone’s personal world. My personal favorites are the the ones that reflect an individual’s personal voice. I think someone else called it brand. Those headers are difficult to reuse because they don’t reflect the voice of the borrower. Perhaps someone should do a header theme that focuses on sampling other people’s work. After all – many blogs are really just references to others’ work.

    A cool contest. Thanks for setting this up. I wish I participated.

    A great collection of design pieces. The issue is that they come across as very stock photo looking. I know that they are a free resource and that the quality and detail that has gone into each one of these is worth a price in itself. But when it comes down to it as they are a free resource they are not unique to a individual blog.
    I think with a small amount of money you can achieve something better but also a unique design for what you want.

    As a set for a portfolio piece from a design point of view you can see that there is a lot of skill in the designs that have been drawn up.
    Very web 2.0 in style and is a great example of how the internet is evolving into this Social Media world.

    Great work look forward to seeing more soon.

    Hey SM,

    thanks for putting on my header :) . Those other looking so great, wish I could have this inspiration. Unfortunately the download link to my header is broken. Even though, nobody would use it, since there are some really great listed. It would be great to fix it. ;)

    Thanks a lot

    I love all these themes, vector artwork has taken off in a big way with blogs and web design.

    I love it,

  67. 68

    All of the examples showcased were stunning, each in their own right. There was one comment in this thread that was though provoking for me. The comment mentioned using the header graphic and running into it somewhere else, considering its availability. This lead me to wonder if these graphics can or cannot be altered?

    Just curious…each of the presented graphics were visually stimulating in any case.

  68. 69

    Really good

    Since the release of the OpenBook, many bloggers asked me how they can modify the color scheme of the theme. Before the release of OpenBook next version, which will probably allow the user to set the colors in WordPress admin panel, here’s an easy, step by step guide to give your OpenBook theme the look you want, even if you don’t know any web language.

  186. 187

    Really nice work of headers. My visits included around 350-400 times. That shows my incapability to deal with even headers.

    You’ve produced some excellent art work. And in bloggers in really suits. Keep up the good work. Amazing, this post has generated around 350-400 views alone from me in a month. Isn’t that incredible. Smashing Magazine really deserves an applaud full of mango juice – that is good thing by the way.

    It is an amazing feat. Great art work and in the public domain.

    Great work. Standing up and CLAPPING loudly, for all of you.

    I always return to your magazine for design ideas and great tutorials — and I just found this older page at your site. These are some really fun blog headers. I especially like the “Ephemeral” collection by designer Nate Legaspi. Abstract headers can really set a mood or a feeling so nicely!

    If you’re using Twenty Eleven, the default theme of the latest version of WordPress, you can change the header image simply uploading a 1000 x 288 pixel size image.
    At you will find some free 1000 x 288 images for your wordpress installation.
