I'm having trouble directing the eye around... but I'm thinking with Jenn's suggestion to leave the background simple... it might work out ok. Any suggestions on how to improve are definitely welcome!

I still think it is perfect as is!! It is such a smart interactive design. Other than possibly making the chosen date and month, time etc. bolder, I wouldn't want the brilliance of this to be diminished : ) I think anyone receiving this will love figuring out the true date - and will save this forever!!

This is a great concept and I love the colors here! The *only* thing is it might be hard for people (thinking grandmas and grandpas) to read.... only I'm not sure how you would remedy this, but perhaps if the tick marks were a little larger?

Love the geeky feeling to it. Maybe you could tone down the colour of the rest of the numbers and months. In that way, the significant ones will pop up and the eye will focus better on the important info.

looove this! I wish there was some kind of clear indicator at "Together with their families" so people could easily see where the invite starts. I'm totally drawn into the design, but it took me a while to figure out where to start as far as finding the right information (I'm pretending I'm a guest receiving this, because right now, I wish I was a guest receiving this!)

I think it might help if you rotated the "Together with their families" to the right so it begins at about 10 o'clock.

perhaps a color change might help the selections stand out, but truthfully i think the tick marks are clear and my eye does follow each circle searching for the answer... it is a fun "puzzle" to solve Great job!

Comments welcome! I was thinking of adding a light, shadowy floral pattern to the grey area - but I don't know if that would be too much.

Hailey, this is sooo clever and the color palette is gorgeous! I love it as is - i think the florals might take away from the beautiful graphic quality of this. I am so in love with the colors!!!

This is SO cool and beautiful! However, my eye is having a hard knowing what to focus on... is there a way to emphasize more the arrows points?

@Kerry - I agree, I was trying to figure out a way to emphasize the word the arrow was pointing to, but maybe you're right - the arrows might be a better focus. I also like the idea of giving the eye some direction... I'll have to play with it more. Thanks!!
