Thanks for the feedback and suggestions on this one, it really helped the hidden word pop more.

Yeah, I definitely think the blue looks 100X better than the olive.

This is not designed for the color blind. Can't read a word.

Hmmm. I uploaded it to Coblis, the color blindness simulator and could read it on all of the settings. Maybe that site's not accurate.

(It says AMERICA in the wrinkles.)

I also have a version on black, which I think I like a little better: Check it out here.

I generally like black better, but the blue evokes a blue sky and works much better. Voting for the blue one.

I honestly think a lot of people are missing the word at first glance, or this would be much higher.

That's why it like it so much. The iconic flag image reveals the embedded type when you're ready to see it.

I knew some people had missed it. I think some people were trying to see it in the negative space somehow.
