    Really digging this. I like the style of this one. Almost "comic meets line art"

    Type looks good. Nice font choice. Might be able to play with the letter sizes individually... i'd bring this into illustrator and play with your type set there and see what you come out with.

    9/10

    Great work here. I like the punk feel you went with here... It says punk without diving into any kind of gothic style. I really dig the composition, the highlighted left really sets a balance with the darker values on the right side. This is symmetry done right.

    10/10

    This is a very cool treatment... I do like the coloring.

    The texture on the left and right edges isn't really blending will with the rest.

    Again, I'm personally not a huge fan of center placement of main graphics in layouts, but there's not rule saying it's bad.

    I like where you were going with the typography here... I just think the contrast between the two sides is a little subtle. If that's the concept, make it more defined with the coloring and treatment of the BG behind it.

    Very nice work. 8/10

    This looks like a brighter colored Sprite ad from the early 90s. I'll see if I can find some examples. If that's the style you were aiming for, you really nailed it.

    Do I like it?

    I'm not a huge fan of the style, but your version is very well executed. Colors came out great, images are good quality, and layout has a good flow.

    Good work.

    It must be Sprite week... This looks like their newer stuff.

    Off the bat... 1st rule of typography: If you can't read it, scrap it.

    Very creative use of what looks like the definition under the heading... but anything under 6pt isn't legible on the web... or much less anywhere.

    Image treatment is great, I like the highlights a lot. Textures are nice, and the composition has a nice flow.

    6/10

    Great shot of Zooey.

    Image quality is a little on the lower side.

    I like the texture in the BG a lot.

    Layout is GREAT.

    Don't see any type.

    Brushing is a little random.

    Coloring is good. Shadows are a little plugged, but highlights are good. :brains:

    All over... 7/10

    One of my favorites.

    This is a signature, no doubt. It's clear and to the point, and a very functional design. If the purpose of this is to promote the website, it does need some sort of call to action.

    (Check out... Go to... See More at...) You get the gist...

    Colors are great. Type is good. The Mark itself could use some line variation. (unless it's intentionally blocky)

    Nice to see a designer without tunnel vision. :slow:

    Good work. Form and function get you a 10/10
