A. I really like the layout, and I think the text is enough on it's own since there are plenty of photos to look at. :)

I voted for A, but I'm not sure that joy needs to be a different font and color. I think I'd prefer it the same as the rest of the text.

A. Definitely. The layout feels more balanced than C and I like the simplicity of the just the text. It let's "Joy" stand out.

When you save for web make sure you have type optimize selected. I might scale the last line down just a tad.

I feel like there needs to be a hierarchy -- right now, it all competes. What about taking "find the magic of Christmas in the" and putting it on 1 line (not in all caps), then JOY underneath in a horizontal font (like Deming or Hellenic), and "of everyday" underneath in the same size/style as the first line? And put the name on the same line as "of everyday" (I don't think you need "Happy Holidays from the..."). I hope that makes sense!!

I like the aqua/mint color paired with the red- very complimentary.

I think you're getting somewhere! I chose A because I like the larger text and the colors read more holiday.

Ella, I do like the coloring of B! Maybe there are too many pictures, maybe take out the bottom line and make the top photo larger? Just a thought.

random thought.... I might photoshop the s out of the top-left square photo. I find it distracting.

What if you simplified the copy and shortened it to something like "Find joy everyday." I think that would give you more room to work with your type.

I love this! I'm going with A. Though I think joy might need to be in a font that doesn't have descenders quite so long - I'd love to see the type moved down a bit more to give it some even spacing all around.

A for me! The mint helps everything pop, and is also a festive color in a little more untraditional hue, which I think works perfectly!

I do like the wording but it still feels like theres a lot of things competing for your focus. I would simplify some more.

I like the idea of adding a little something, and the pop of color on the berries (?) is nice. You might make the graphic bigger, though, just so it's easier to see what it is, and also so it takes up a similar about of horizontal space as the line above. I would also consider having the third lines be all the sans serif font, so the script "from" doesn't compete for attention in a tight space.

I like the simpler version in A. Maybe try keeping either the second or third line in all san serif (so that there are fewer focuses) and increase the kerning in all of the san serif font to air things out a little bit?

I like it without the ornaments and I would consider making the joy in the same font as the rest of that line.

A for me. I think you could simplify even more. Perhaps try the greeting all in the sans serif, except the word joy? And maybe even just the family name below that, so there isn't so much copy? Really love the photo layout, Ella!

Really cute writing! I picked option A, because I think the paler colors will go best with the most photos. One thing I would play around with is making all the non-script text in all caps. I think that might look nice and clean. Also, I would capitalize "Find" - I think being lowercase, it looks a little out of place - either that, or make Christmas lowercase (just keep it consistent either way).

great idea for a photo layout! I like B. I might even flip it and have the large image at the top and the smaller ones under the banner. I think I might also try a more christmasy color like a mint or a red.

Ella I like the type on the bottom and agree with maybe putting the large picture on top. Also like the idea of a Christmasy color for the type background. Love the wording, but would think about changing the fonts to something a touch more formal.

Love the copy/concept! B for me as the layout, but I agree with others about putting the large photo at the top and the collection of smaller photos at the bottom (that way it feels like the larger photo on top would be the opening title with the smaller snippets/everyday stories following). And I agree about simplifying the type as well by sticking with either serif and/or sans serif fonts. Just suggestions to try out. :)

I chose B. I like how the color block and words break up the images, and for some reason, my eye was drawn more to the lighter color.

I like how the photos are broken up with the text bar. The lighter color of the text bar allows the photos to be the center of attention here.

i like A but maybe try a really bold fun color for the background of your type and then play with some cleaner font options :)
