STD possibility?

Thoughts on this STD layout? I've been messing around in Illustrator CS4 trying to make something that's simple and neat and looks like it represents FI and I, not just some random wedding-y thing. (And thanks to Sara for the inspiration).

See if PIP works :) What do you guys think?

    It's great if it represents YOU! What if you lightened the "&" sign between your names? I feel like there's too much attention called to it. But besides that, it's very modern!

    lol i'm not very good at explaining things, and I'm way better at Illustrator than Photoshop, so idk that i'd be much help since most people use photoshop. i suggest downloading fonts from a free site, i use http://www.dafont.com ... so that way no one is like "ew what a basic lame font" lol. it gives it a nice step up from something that looks "home made" or whatever, you know?

    They look really good!  I think maybe take 'Save the Date' back out of the pink, it almost looks too much all in pink.  Love the modernness and the fact that it represents you and your FI!!

    (isn't designing fun? :))

    yeah i didn't leave it pink - i was only showing her what it looked like in all pink because she asked :) i totally agree that it was too much.

    and i LOVE designing, our school just got rid of the program :( but it's my favorite. :)

    and thanks!! I'm actually really proud of it lol

    I would maybe try the & sign in a different font? I think it looks like an E. But the lighter version does look better. I love how funky and modern it is. Are you making it a magnet?

    i tried the "&" in a couple fonts and couldn't make it look cohesive because i have no patients, i need to try and find something new to download and try again :)

    and it's just the CC turned State school in Daytona, no big fancy shmancy big kid college lol. they said not enough people were graduating from that major. :(

    and lynette - i definitely agree. i've been playing around with it for a while and need to probably stop looking at it for a while haha. you're right though, that's the only way you figure out what looks good.

    thank you ladies! you've all been really helpful and supportive :)

    That's what I do... I design something. Step away for a bit and usually the next day I go back to it with fresh eyes. Well I can really only do that with stuff I design at home. Cuz when I'm designing at work, I don't have that luxury!

    One of the schools I attended only had 5 people graduating from the graphic design major.. and I was one of them! Our class started with 40 people and kept trickling down down down until there was 5 of us left.

    That's what you have to do when you design...stop looking at it for a while.  You're on a great track with it!

    In my MFA program I was the only person in the design program at the time I was there.  It was quite amusing now that I think about it.
