    I love the compositions and your use of color for this project! You created very compelling and visually interesting designs here.

    It is really interesting to see your approach to this project because we have the same font. I really like your compositions and color choice overall because it plays off of the font, which is elegant and refined. I particularly like your composition for the tittle because you arranged it to be informative by placing it in the middle to display the weight difference and you also created a decorative composition around it.

    Really good compositions, this is my first time seeing them. I really like the “tittle” display. The arrangement and use of subtle color is great.
