    I've been exploring more with minimalism, but still trying to keep things logical. This is a 11x17 cover for a recent undergrad project I've been working on. Does it work? Why or why not? The blue wacked...

    Now i have no real experience working with clients but in my opinion you did what most designers should do. You are being hired as a designer not an artist. Its our job to create work that makes sense....

    I really like the aesthetic.

    Will you do more in the series? You could have a different design for different departments.

    Just thought I would post this for a final critique before submission.
    It looks kind of boring to me, but I can't go too crazy with it so I'm stuck.

    Advice?

    not wanting to be penickity my love, but the AGA is swedish, not british [img]/DesktopModules/dotNetBB/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    i'd also perhaps try it with a dark green band at the top behind the logo and copy and have the title line in white ? might compliment the red nicely. I say this purely because i associate aga with homely-ness, family and warmth, and it feels alittle white and minimal/cold.

      my boss wanted to emphasize that these are quite popular in Britain - at least, that's what he tells me! [img]/DesktopModules/dotNetBB/emoticons/lol.gif[/img]

      I am intrigued by your idea though, I felt that it was a little too plain. Let me play with it a little bit more. Thanks!

        I'm with Bear on this. A splash of color in the head banner wouldn't hurt. Also, as far as the copy goes, I would cap the L in live. You might consider rewording that section as follows:

        Live cooker on premises. To set up a demonstration, call us.

        Just my .02. It's good to see a fellow Albanian hard at work. Other than those suggestions, the ad looks good!

        That's how I roll!

          Ha! I've been looking at this for so long I didn't even realize that the 'l' in 'live' was lowercase. Yikes!

          I'll keep at it! Thanks for the direction, guys!

            I'm British and that's not what i would call a cooker!?! It's a Range! Okay to be fair, it's a Range cooker, but we'd never call it just a Cooker!

            That aside, i do like the ad.

                  I think that black stroke on the header is a little too thick, I'm going to play with that a bit.

                    when i was in britain, they called aga's an 'aga'. but who can afford them?!?

                    morea, i'm not keen on the way your body text is 'gap toothed', and the 'gauch' is just a little too cozy with your black line. also, i would not include your first period in your perenthesis. i would set it as 'cooker'. rather than 'cooker.'

                    why the black line at all? what about blocks of colour, or shifting the photo so that you don't need your line? just brainstorming here.

                      hey unc - thanks for the feedback - not to be dense, but I'm not really sure I know what you mean by the text being 'gap toothed' - can you clarify a little please?

                        Aga's or Ranges have become pretty mainstream/trendy now, and aren't as expensive, or well made come to that, as they used to be lol! Still out of my price range (excuse the pun) though; i've just got a cooker!

                        Something about the green header doesn't look right/as good as the original. You're probably right about the stroke being the cause!

                          Have I told you how much I love you guys? Whenever I get stuck, you're always able to un-stick me.

                            gap toothed - watch your leading and kerning. not that it's insanely out of whack, but the serif, black & white and space around your text brings to mind a zebra...confuses the eye. i can't read it. perhaps it's just on the screen though, so print it out and see what your eye does when you change all that around.

                            sorry - english is my second language today. the first being 'in-tongues'. (still recovering).

                            anyone else explain what i mean?
