Not sure how I'm going to grade this yet, but from a design standpoint, here are things that jump out at me.
- Symmetry is important. Are things equal on all sides? If they aren't, things can look lopsided. If you have text in the corner, the border on the side should be the same size as the border on the bottom. Here's a good example.
This one? Not so much. The bottom of the picture cuts off the bottom of the letters, and the space after the final A in America is way too big. Put your text far enough in the image that we can read all of it, and make the bottom (or top) border even with the side border.
- Put space between your flag logo and the text. If they overlap, they can be hard to read.
- Use one font, and one font color. Keep the sizes equal unless you have an amazingly good reason to change them. Make your font eye-catching, but not too loopy or swirly. Think basic and bold.
- More as we go. If you finish one Downtown Postcard, do another. We'll have a rubric soon. I'm glad we're having fun with this. 😀
