Polling for layout,I personally like option A for the playfulness of the type but maybe option B seems short & sweet. The idea here was to play with type (negative,positives)

A is unique. But I will go for B. Would love to see more colorways in poll !!

Love it Nadia! I really like A, but I'm afraid if people weren't expecting it to say graduate, it might take them a minute. So I went with B. But I'm interested to see what others say :)

Option B is much easier to read in my opinion.

B is easier to read but I really love the unique-ness of A. It would look amazing in gold foil! ;)

I picked B because I think it would have the most mass-appeal. A is unique but like Makewells said, it's hard to read if you're not already expecting it to say "graduate." Really fun design!

I went with B! A is also great, but I think B has instant impact and is also easier to read right away, A you need to look at for a minute. B is immediately recognizable, and it still unique and interesting. I think I like the larger letters in B as well, more bold.

Both great. B is a much easier read, but I think it may be worth giving A another shot to see if you can get it to read just a bit better. It's such a cool idea. I think the eye may just be getting stuck on the sideways "U" and "T" :)

I choose A because it is the most unique and even if you don't know what it says immediately, you can figure it out - isn't that part of interactive design!? I would consider reworking the T, I think that is the only letter that is out of balance with the rest. I think this is great Naz!

I picked B - the simplicity of this version feels more immediately legible while still having the fun stacked look you're going for.

A is very cool, but I agree that it may be a bit confusing at first. B for me then.

I like the simplicity of B better, but I'd switch the locations of the A and the R. Right now it reads like "Gard" :)
