you so often see cutesy love bird illustrations, so i really like that this goes in a very different direction. the illustration here is great and i love the details and shading. typographically, though, something's not quite working for me. i feel like the text is crowding the birds and all of the "weight" of the invitation is towards the bottom left. i think maybe just moving all of the text up and to the right a bit and maybe even right justifying the info instead of left? i also find the use of so many capital letters a little bit distracting.

I agree with Julie. Love the birds, but the text needs a little tweaking. I may even consider ditching the bright blue color. I know you're going for a POP of color, but it's distracting from the birds, and they are the clear show stoppers.

thanks I totally saw what you we're saying about the type crowding the birds. I adjusted the placement and changed the body copy to small caps and made slightly smaller. I think it looks much better. I keep going back and forth about the justification though.

I really love this design. It is classic and classy. I like the way it is justified and the invite just draws me in. As a slightly older reader my eyes aren't what they used to be and I personally would love to see the text just slightly larger. That said, I still give this design a top rating. Your attention to detail is impeccable. I love it!

I love the birds and the pop of color to bring the attention of the bride & groom. Its very clean, classic and simple. Maybe all the letters should be lowercase or for the details part of the invite, maybe upper and lowercase would be my advice. Other than that, nice work Gyrnberg!
