Still torn on this one. The last vote was slightly favouring B but I really like A also. Any more feedback is very much appreciated!

I love A. I like the contrast of the black and white with the gold. C would be my second choice.

I love D - I think the full bleed is nice, but the separation with the white and this photo really sells it for me. Very cool!

I voted for D. I much prefer the numerals "framed" by the space.

B. Prefer the full bleed. I like both color ways, but as a photographer, the darker type will work better for most of my images. I'd offer them both, though.

A is lovely! I think D would be a close second - or maybe C, but with charcoal/dark gray background instead of blue?

I like the photo in B...and would love to see it in a darker background! Foil looks so good on navy....

I like Photo A! B is a close second. And the navy looks good but my vote is for the white. :) Lovely design!

Loving B and agree with Carolyn that it would be knockout with a navy background.

I prefer the photo in B, followed by C. Have you tried the numerals over the full bleed photo? That would free up room for the text. I think the text seems a touch too close to the top and crammed, so maybe overlaying directly onto the photo would help? Love the numerals that big in foil!

Option C looks great to me, I think popping THE ANDERSONS in all caps is a nice touch.
