Welcome to Minted, Kellee! I love the feel of this! I'm thinking that you could go even smaller with the type, and spaced closer together, to get more grey space. Also, have you considered left-justifying your type so it originates close to the bars? That might tie everything together. Best of luck to you!

one more thought - I would bring your type down some, too, so it's all below the top of the smallest bar on the left.

Love the art deco feel of this Kellee. I agree with Kim that you may want to consider left justifying the type. Welcome to Minted!

I think it does look better letting the text be the focal point. Thank you!

Love the Art Deco vibe of this, but I think you need to work on your typography a bit more. It seems a bit large to me.

Hi Kellee - the fonts and colors are very nice... i almost think you don't need the illustrations on the side and bottom; it is quite elegant and maybe just a small motif if you wanted to add something, but I think the body is beautiful on it's own
