About the Design

comments from Jody:

I wanted to make the requisite "baby stats" more interesting - rather than an afterthought - by highlighting them with classic vintage icons, with a slightly tongue-in-cheek touch.

I'm not sure how I feel about the typeface in this one, especially the baby's name. Should I go with a serif type? Any thoughts? PS - Thank you so much Laura!

I like the sans-serif font you chose. The colors are great on this one!

I like everything about this but the background. It feels like an afterthought. I would try some other colors and/or a small very subtle pattern.

I think the typeface you chose you chose is perfect. Love the icons. I agree with Kerry on the background color though (but it reads as a shade of gray on my screen, not light brown.) Nice work :o)

Thanks for the great suggestions and comments everyone - do you think this solution works for the background? :)

Perfect! Creates just enough visual interest but very subtle.

The icons are strong which bring the piece together. It gives the feel of a tag-like label. I like the concept.
