Excellent work. Everything has a sense of depth without being overly 'layered,' and the texture helps blend all the elements.

Excellent solve on the bottom... love that little sail boat. I also love the nod to Seuss with the copy. Very fun!

This is terrific Jen! Maybe make the "o" in go the shape of a round cloud(?).

Love this! I agree- I think something to add interest to the bottom half, the top is perfection! The blue makes me think of tying in a sailboat perhaps- maybe even just a wave texture? Enjoy your Friday night then come back with fresh eyes over the weekend :)

Love, love, love the top! The "GO" seems stilted in comparison to the whimsy on top. I think that I'm wanting the "we will" to follow the curves. Also the "H" in "THE" looks a bit tipped. You might want to scoot it over a bit so that it sits more vertically.

So fun + playful! I really like Laura's suggestion about the water and sailboat at the bottom. Or, maybe, the "O" in GO can be a compass? Hmmm. . .actually I think I like the water/sailboat idea better. Either way, it looks fantastic, as is. :)

super cute - and I agree, maybe the bottom part is wavy water pulling out some of the blue color from the banner at the top. Or - just a thought (and potentially super dorky) what if the "o" of go is the moon in a slightly darker blue background?

Jennifer...I totally love this. At first glance it reminded me of the book "Oh The Place You'll Go". It's a book I often give to kids graduating high school. I could see this working great as a high school graduation gift too! Brilliant as always!
