First of all, thank you for developing this wonderful theme.
I just built a small personal website. I consolidated and migrated my web presence from blogger and various google sites/pages into a single wordpress website. So I am not a business, and don't have logo etc., neither I plan to put ads in header. So I would like to get rid of the space taken up by header above the Nav Bar.
Is there any Custom CSS that can remove the Name of the site from the header and move the social icons and search box to Nav Bar?
If that is not possible, is it possible to reduce height of the header, Nav Bar, Footer through custom CSS (like http://fundersandfounders.com/ have done, but they modified they modified the theme; and though they have published the theme at Github, their theme changes are more suitable for their visual blog, rather than my mostly text site)?
