I chose B. The little big of gold adds a special touch without overpowering the design.

I like B. The pops of color really help the design stand out and complement it nicely.

Thanks for the great comments. I've created two more versions with both of your input, and a poll is out there. I'd appreciate any more input you have. Thanks so much!

This is cool! I chose B but I think it would look super kickass with red swapped out for gold foil.

I chose B, but not sold on the red, maybe another color?

Hi Laura: I love a good art deco theme :) One thing I might suggest for this is trying some different colors to really make your design pop. Especially with the stylized fonts you're using, you might consider a bright or bold color to help them stand out against something light, instead of shades of black and brown. Good luck!

I think you're onto something nice. I could see making this into a black and white design, and eliminating the corner squares (just the black and brown groups). I definitely agree that something about the color scheme is holding it back somehow. Can't wait to see how it turns out!
