I went with B, but I think you could move your J and your Y a little closer to the 'O'

I like the negative space in B. The J and Y do not compete as much with the beautiful snowflake.

I like how in A they are all the same size but I like the actual size of B, if that makes sense. Make them all the same size as each other but scale down the overall size to that of B

I'm going with somewhere in between. I love the scale of the first line and graphic in a but I think the j and y could be just a bit smaller.

I think the bigger type is working in the design. I would make sure the spacing is balanced with the top and bottom type.

I think I like B a little better, but you could always aim for somewhere in between :)

I think A works best, there's a little too much empty, awkward space on B. This is so simple but so effective - well done!

I like B because I think the size is just right, but I would reduce the tracking in Joy.

It was a toss up between B and C – I went with C because the more I look at it, the more I think I like the larger graphic 'O.' I liked B because there's more space for the "Joy" to breath. My suggestion would be to try reducing the size of "Joy" in C :)

Nice, simple design! I prefer the balance in option A – the close letter spacing in "joy" is more cohesive and no one element stands out above another.

A for me, I like the extra breathing space, you might be able to bump the bottom line down just a bit.

I think A has the best proportions but the J & Y need to be tracked in a bit.

I prefer the smaller snowflake of option A. I would kern in the lettering of "Joy" to tighten things up.

creative use of a snowflake as the "o" and I really like the simplicity of it. I wonder if the snowflake is a little heavy, perhaps you could add some more pixel holes throughout to make it lighter and less aztek-y?

I agree that the snowflake looks a little heavy. I think the J and Y could also be a bit more whimsical

This is a really fun start, Ilze. It feels like there is a lot of empty space surrounding "Joy," that could be filled with some details that match the snowflake. Great work!

I would make the top and bottom text a little smaller and move them a couple more spaces towards the center. I'd also make Joy a little smaller as well :)

Hi Lize! I agree with everyone's comments about the snowflake looking a little heavy... Maybe add some more holes or vertical lines to make it less heavy.... Hope this helps!

Agreed. I think the snowflake could look a little lighter or maybe the same size as the 'O'. Great work!
