I like the version you revised with the sans serif, but looks like more votes for version 1... which is also great! I think it's a winner :)

ok, so I think I liked the added contrast that the quicksand brought in but felt that it needed to be more balanced still.. I think it helps to bring it into the main heading but I really wanted to play on the reindeer games idea.. does it seem/look odd to keep the word games in the script? Does it look better and make more sense to keep it consistent with the rest of the line as shown below? Does anyone still prefer my original version with just the 2 fonts?

Kerri, not sure if this one is quite right. I think it's a winner with either the first or second version. I forgot to mention how much a love that little reindeer!

I like the second version (the one in your comment)... Something about not have the entire line in script or sans serif looks odd to me. I would keep that line all in the script... Hope that helps! :)

Hi Kerri! This looks really great! I agree with Kerry (Paper Dahlia) about keeping the line under reindeer in either all script or all sans. Great job with the type!! :)

This is gorgeous. I'm just finding the type work a little too heavy in some places. Maybe adding/replacing some of the script fonts to another simpler and lighter typeface like Futura or Gills Sans for some of the copy? Colours are working well!

I was wondering if I needed to add an additional font for some more contrast, if it was just too much of the same. I wish that Wisdom had an additional thinner width.. Would love others thoughts on this.. Not sure where to go from here, I have been fussing around with it for the past 2 hours! I need more eyes please and thank you : )

I like the one you have submitted! I agree you could use a lighter font some places, but not sure what to suggest. I like the version submitted over the one you have in your comment. Good luck!

I like the newer version with the light sans serif font. All the fonts in the original version are very thick so it adds a nice contrast...

I like this a lot! Love the neutral color and it will look great in other colorways as well. I like the first version with the san serif typeface so it breaks up the script face a bit. I think adding that font in one more spot, maybe at the very top for join us?? And I would justify the line under reindeer since all the rest is justified. Just some input since you inquired, but looks great overall!!

Hey Kerri... I'm not going to be much help now. I keep going back and forth with the original and new. I do like the lightness of the newer one. I do find it a lot easier to read and it's balanced well, but now there's something about the original that I keep going back to as well. Sorry about getting you confused! Go with your gut feeling. :) I think you'll do well!
