Classic clean typography and strong graphic contrast make this design stand out. The top of the zig-zags, however, feels unresolved against the rectangle above, and the 10 years in white on the light background is barely legible. Definitely a good start, but perhaps in need of just a tiny bit more work.

Koshi-what about the top of the zig-zags don't you like? There were several options I was considering, but I liked the way this option broke the grid and extended into the space above. Also, with the "10 Years" I was definitely going for a tone-on-tone look, and that's why I chose the white on cream. Thanks for the feedback-

love this design, but i agree with koshi that it could be tweaked ever so slightly. i didn't even realize that there was "10 years" underneath celebrating - i love a good tone on tone but it can make for a lot of printing problems

Ok, I can take a hint. ; ) I darkened the cream color, let me know what you think.
