Re: Red Riding Hood


I like the idea, but there isn't much contrast, so I'm not sure how well it will display. Larger or bold font, brighter colors? Adjust kerning? I don't know--there's just too much black and not enough shape for me.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

You keep saying you're not an artist, Mavyn, but your analysis is spot on. brighter colors, tighter kerning, and a larger bolder font would all work, and they'd work well together so you're not relying too heavily on any single technique. Anyway, I agree completely.

Thanks. I mostly mean I lack the talent critical to an artist--the ability to translate the image inside to something tangible.

Thanks for the feedback, I'm not sure how to override this design submission.

Lack of contrast is one of my most frequent complaints. I've seen it overcome by a heavier font and/or a different background color to the font.

Once submitted, you have 24 hours in which you can delete an entry by clicking a tiny little box that will be on the upper right of the image. After that, you can't.

But, you can always make revisions and resubmit the design to this derby. There's no limit on how many ideas you can submit.
