Thanks, Sarah! I think I agree...
went back to Myriad Po for "Joyed," but kept Futura for all other non-script text
Love the color change! Just my two cents, but I preferred the body text all capitalized. This works too though!
Soooo - thank you for all the great feedback!!! Here's hoping this version pleases more voters (lots of conflicting views about the colors!). I also changed the main font to Futura - torn on how the new "JOYED" looks in Futura and bout the switch to lower case in the text. Comments always appreciated!
Oh wow!! Kim, you totally brought this to a whole new level. I LOVE it. Your attention to all of the little details really shows. The new colors are perfection! I could go on and on!! (Ps - thanks for your sweet comment :)
I love the design, but am not a fan of the red and green. Are you using Myriad regular? I might see what it looks like with the light version. Otherwise, beautiful!
Clever idea!! I love the change to the colors. I don't know if I'm feeling the Myriad. How about Gotham or Futura?
The concept is super cool, Kim! This is totally my opinion, so take it or leave it - I like the colours but I think it might look even better with a deep but neutral shade for the background (greyish perhaps). I think that would do two things: (1) Give the design more sophistication and make it less "Christmasy", more "wedding-y" (is that a word? lol) and (2) I think it would make your red stripes really "pop" and look super cool. You may have to play around with the shade of red and ditch the cream for a light grey if you did that. That's my two cents since you were asking for feedback! I do really like it as is though too :)
This has really evolved, Kim! I think it's looking much more contemporary, but I would have to agree with Melanie about color. I think the red stripes read Holiday without the green. Or maybe change the cream to white throughout? In any case, it's looking good and you've done a great job refining it.
Thank you, everyone, who took the time to give me so much thoughtful feedback - much appreciated!!! I'm hoping this is looking better than all the previous versions...
And - is it easy to figure out? or is is fancied up to the point that it no longer resembles a word puzzle?
Did I go a little crazy with the Bickham?
and if Bickham looks good, would a different sans serif font look better with it? I like the "joyed" in Myriad, but maybe there is a better font for the rest? All opinions appreciated!
Thank you, Wendy and Hailey, for your feedback! Wendy - I almost went back to teh blue and grey, but felt like these brighter colors may stand out more for voting (could be a mistake?). I've added some script and freshened the colors. An improvement?
should the green be darker?
Wow! What a change. I love the stripes! I do like the colours but I wouldn't mind seeing it in something different. As Hailey suggested muted colours may work too and you could still keep that seasonal feel by adding pops of colour. Overall I think this is working so well now. Great job!
I decided to take advantage of the "joy" and make it a holiday season wedding...
hmmm- I did like the other colors better.
Oh wow - I love seeing all of the iterations this has developed from. I think the "Joyed" concept is working really well now. The only thing I'm not sold on is the colors. The classic red and green doesn't feel 'special' - in a way that should separate it from other events that are more typical in the holiday season! Maybe a more muted/yellow-ish green... and a slightly orange-ish red would give it a bit of a fresh pop, sort of a modern but vintage color scheme?
Thanks for the feedback! Does this help? Should I keep the "overjoyed" in the blue, so it stands out and helps "solve" the puzzle?
any suggestions/comments on the colors also appreciated!
i think this is really fun - love the colors too.
Thank you both for your helpful comments!! I'm hoping this makes it clearer - "overjoyed" is now blue to match the puzzle text. Also, adjusted the text - hopefully better, yes? Thanks!!
oh, and I kept the whole puzzle text blue b/c I want it to e clear that it all goes together. Comments appreciated!!! Thanks!
Clever, Kim. Though I agree with Kerry about the "Joyed" maybe being a different typeface. It reads to me as their last name (even though they aren't married yet :)
Cute! Although, it took me a minute to get the "overjoyed" concept...maybe that's just me. Is there a way to make the "joyed" text different from the names? To me it almost looks like that is their last name.
Simple yet interesting concept. I agree with Kerry's comment about changing the text as it looks like their last name. Also there are a few "rivers" in the body copy. Justification of text could be worked on a little more to get it balanced well.
ALL comments, critiques, suggestions welcome!
not sure about the Futura... ALL comments, critiques, suggestions welcome!
or, maybe, I'm not sure about Strangelove...
