Wordpress: LOGO + tagline

I am using Wordpress to create the site at perridicedesigns.com

I am using a logo image option instead of the title and tagline option.

In the header I would like to display the Logo image (where it is) and then next to it I would like to put the site description in larger letters. It seems when I enable a logo image that the Text version of the site title and tagline are no longer available.

Can someone tell me how I can have a header where I keep the Logo image AND have the tagline (site description) next to it? I would like to keep this responsive so that when I narrow the browser window, the tagline drops below the image and the text size increases to make it more legible on small devices.

Thanks,

Mark

what template are you using?
depends on the template
you may have to edit the header.php file for that template

I am using a template from Template Monster. I am prepared to create a child theme and edit the header.php. The theme admin does not have the option of adding both the Logo image and a tagline to the header directly.

you'll have to edit the header.php of that template and find the bit of code where it displays either an image or the words.
 
so in the twenty thirteen  theme it displays just the site name and strap line, no image and the header has the following code:

<h1 class="site-title"><?php bloginfo( 'name' ); ?></h1>
<h2 class="site-description"><?php bloginfo( 'description' ); ?></h2>

in this case you could add code to display an image.
but looking at other themes they construct the header completely different.  

In the Monster theme  they have used an image that contains the words. but you would have to be careful of the size.  in this case you could edit the responsive style sheets and change the image depending on the size of the screen.

if you wanted to do it properly as you say, create a child theme and copy the relevant files from your chosen theme into anotherfolder and the change them (more details here https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes)
