I think your tent and colors are fab! I'm sot sure the typography is working for me. I think a mix of fonts and placement would give it more interest and make it more playful.

Thanks for your comments and suggestions! I played around with a BUNCH of fonts and placements before ultimately choosing this one, which I think really speaks to my aesthetic as a designer.

Cute! I might make the photo corners the gray color you used for the text, just to make them tie in a little better with everything. Of course, you may have tried that already and settled on black for a reason :)

I love this! the colors are perfect and the little tent is just adorable! I think it would be fun to see what would happen if you lost the photo corners and tried a simple tent-type scallop at the top of the photo frame, and it would be a subtle touch, but it might reinforce the tent theme and carry it through your composition.

Cute tent, idea + type. Wish the colors were more similar in chroma. For me, the blue, orange + green are the same intensity-- but the purple seems heavy and the a bit pink light.

Very nice! I love the illustration. The purple color jumps out a little too much. Maybe a darker orange or another shade of green could look nice. But I do love it! Well done.

Again, thanks for your comments and suggestions. Here's an updated version of the design. @ Kelli - I really liked your suggestion about the scallop, but now I can't decide between the photo corners or the scallops. @ J. Bartyn - I adjusted the colors slightly.

I still adore this! especially the colors : ) As far as the scallop, If it were mine, I'd be playing with the scallop turned in on the photo (like a tent flap in your wonderful illustration was just brushing the top of the photo ; )

@ Kelli Gotcha! I played with the placement of the scallops, and I like it on the side best. Still debating between photo corners or scallops...

LOVE this design! That tent is SO cute. I think the scallops work really well too . I might have rounded them a little more, they remind me of eggs right now.

Since it is getting near the deadline I will go ahead and say that I think I liked the photo corners best. I like the way the picture balanced with the text to the left. I used madfont on a poster/t-shirt design I've been working on after seeing you use it here. It worked perfectly! Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks for your comments! @ Sydney Yay! I am so glad Madfont worked for you. It's become one of my new favorite fonts. I am still going back and forth between the scallops and the photo corners. I like both in different ways...
