About the Design

comments from Courtney:

This design was inspired by many modern designs with a sense of whimsy, as well as classic designs. Many of my friends were reminded of an old fashioned Ice Cream Shop design, so that became its name!

Hi All! I am a little worried that things appear too cramped. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

I wouldn't mind seeing a little more spacing with the Save the Date - mainly between the "the" and "Date". I like the & overlapping on names though! Good work!

I would advise that you make the details at the bottom alot smaller, then you can capitalize on the extra space to make your 'Save the Date' larger.

i like your idea of an old fashioned ice cream shop! i think that reducing the size of the small text would free up some breathing room. I would also try a solid color instead of a striped background, to allow your typography to be the focus. Hope that helps!
