We do that all the time. Try this in your view

<view autoCancelInterval="90" isVisible="true" onunloadCancelJobs="true" refresh="-1" template="dashboard.html" >
  <label>YOUR VIEW NAME/TITLE HERE</label>
    <module name="AccountBar" layoutPanel="appHeader">
    <param name="mode">popup</param>

The label tag could read, "Welcome to ABC Company"

Note in particular that the accountbar mode parameter is "popup".

If you want to get fancy, create a graphic named appLogo.png and put it in the appp\appserver\static folder of your application. Make it something like 436x60 pixels. Then edit application.css to match the image size.

.appLogo {
    height: 60px; 
    width: 436px;
    padding-right: 5px;
    float: left;
    background: url(appLogo.png) no-repeat 0 0;
    _background: url(appLogo.gif) no-repeat 0 0;

That should give you the customization that you want.
