  1. I loved the clown page. Very clever and I like the use of the font for it also, (might have looked a bit better if the letter “A” was left out though; it still would have looked great just saying “Dynamite Performer,” but I’m just being a little bit nit-picky there.)
    Another one of my favorites is the page with the map. Nice balance to the page without being too overwhelming. Overall, nice job!

  2. I think the map page is very well done. I can also appreciate the header with ‘The Land Before Time’ theme. I think the Lifestyles package with the clown is excellent and invokes feelings of fun and happiness.
    As a paper we are cautious of using too many colors, especially dark ones which involve reverse type. Mainly, because printing can become an issue, and secondly stories and elements start to compete with each other. The city lands jobs layout just uses too many elements. It might be more enjoyable to use a sparing amount of extra elements and focus more on the stories.
    Overall, I think the packages that spotlight one story are the strongest.

    Credit for the Dynamite clown design goes to our designer Julie Tyler. That was not my work, but a page that really stands out. That’s why I sent it to share with you folks.
