    so here I go now. I'm participating in a contest for a postcard/leaflet design of a private school in Warsaw. it is something between a postcard and a leaflet - it should have some info about studies but it will be prnted as a postcard... so what do you think about this one?:

    I like the layout and the splash of color from the photo in the lower right.

    Good luck! :thumbup:

    It is a good layout, but I fell bothered that the top half is a very mid tone and then te botom has a lot of color and white. It seems off balance somewhat. Then again, I am not a design critic, so I wouldnt take me so seriously

    I like the lines, but as has been said, the pictures are a little bright compared to the top image. I'd lose that red exclamation mark as well.

    Try and limit yourself to one font per page, consider a different colour to be a different font. I like that teal colour and I think it would work well for all the text, giving stronger continuity over the document. I'd also try the photos in B&W possibly with rounded edges.

    That's what I'd try, but I'm not a terribly good designer!

    ok... I like the general layout and colours you've chosen, so good job there. The typefaces are ok... rob is right to try an limit yourself to one if your fairly new to design, it helps things flow a little better. However if your feeling brave i would go for two for this design. Maybe the title in one font and the address in another would work, as long as the typefaces compliment each other. As far as imagery..... i like the large pic on the one side thats good, but with the three pics, firstly i would loose the drop shadow or at least make the shadow tighter to the image. Large dropshadows tend to look a bit desk top publisher to me. One option you could go for is to put thin frames around each pic to help them stand out.
    I actaully like the red exclamation mark as long as it (and the bottom right picture) stay where they are, they seem to balence each other colour wise.
    The other thing i would do is add more letter spacing to the text under the title, to make it a similar length to the main title, think that would help tidy it up a bit.
    All in all though good job mentos.... im impressed :thumbup:

    this exclamation mark is a part of the logo. I was given the logo by the company so it has to be like it is...
    thanks for your opinion Archangel!!!

    I prefer the black and white simply because it makes the ! stands out more and grabs your attention.
