Looking for advice on large versus small polka dot pattern. Would love your feedback! Thanks in advance, Juliana.

Very pretty design. I chose A cuz I like the air in between the dots. It's more whimsical than B. B is still cool but just has a slightly more rigid feel next to open, airy A.

I said A, but I would be interested to see what it looks like without the border since there is already a lot going on. Just have the dots stop there rather than the outline maybe?

Hi Juliana! I've chosen A option, because it looks lighter and more elegant. I think that the second design has too intense dots and they distract a little bit.

A is my favorite, I like the spacing between the dots, and the fact they are more delicate than in B.

I voted for B, but I like both designs. I only went with B because I like the positioning of the hello better where it intersects that corner of the white box. A slight variation that might work well on A too :)

i like A. have your thought about eliminating the black line all together and moving the hello (possibly playing with different scales/type faces) down to the bottom - pushing the name to the right?!?! hope that makes sense :)

I chose A- I feel like the more spaced out dots give the design a lighter feeling.
