The Blunt Bean Counter's New Look

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s The Blunt Bean Counter, draped in calculator tape and ready to help you conquer your challenges and fears regarding income tax and money.

I’m pleased to introduce The Blunt Bean Counter’s new brand which is a bit more whimsical than the staid blogger banner and better fits my desire to provide serious financial insight with a touch of humour and sarcasm.

I would like to thank Leah Vlemmiks for her graphics, Robert Campbell for implementing the changes and Debbie Andrews, my firm’s (Cunningham LLP) marketing consultant for coordinating everyone.


  1. Serious tax insight but a bold new look. I like it!

    Why isn't he holding a golf club? :)


    1. Thx, the marketing person vetoed the golf club and the Maple Leaf flag :)

  2. Not hating here- this is definitely one of the most informative blogs on your subject matter. But that header... Crikey! She's Huge!

    Sure, it looks nice, but it's so !$!@ big that blog posts are now "below the fold". Serious no-no :)

    Do you really need a whole screen about yourself to be replicated on every page?

    1. Hey Robert

      The illustrator said she wanted the header size to match my ego :)

      I had no idea it is replicated on each page, will speak to my blog guy, thx for ur comments.
