This is my first design submitted to a design challenge! I'm wondering if it's too simple? Too grown up? If so, how could I make it more interesting? Thank you so much for your valuable feedback.

What you do you think of the re-design? Do you like it with the photo and more color? I tried different fonts but didn't find a combination I liked more than this one. Thank you so much for the feedback!

It's a beautiful design! I really like it, but it might be too grown up. Only visualizing it in my head, it could be fun to try making it landscape with the mountain scene along the bottom and the typography at the top. I like the fonts, but you can make it a little younger with another pop of color and/or adding the age. Maybe incorporating the treasure and lunch portion into the overall design in that way. Again, it's really a lovely landscape even if you don't do anything at all. Welcome to Minted! I'm pretty new myself and only have participated in a handful of challenges. :-)

love the painting or photograph that is there as well as the font choice. I would make the word 'celebrating' larger but not as big as the name. And the date, time, location, and rsvp smaller than the 'lunch will be ...'

When I first saw your design I felt like the bottom portion acted like a reflection of the top (because of the same type colors and symmetrical placement I think) …kind of cool, but maybe also taking it into the grown up look Lisa was speaking of? Maybe try using some light color for the background in the bottom half (heck, you could try color in the top half as well). Best of luck!

Welcome to minted! I think maybe adding some sky or a sunset - some bursts of color really - would help to make it feel a little more fun. I might also try breaking up the text a little bit so lunch and treasure stand out a little more from the rest of the copy. Maybe putting it on one line. Putting the two address lines (320 elm... and the city) could also help break it apart from the rsvp a bit as well.

I think the type on the bottom could have a little more style to it. Something bolder than ostrich sans medium. Maybe mix in a cursive font? I think the main problem for me is that the type takes up so much space and the awesome landscape is too small. It's so pretty I wish it was larger and in a landscape format.
