It's creative to use the broken plate to form a tree shape. The negative space is working well in contrasting with the plate. Also, the plate is shattered in the perfect way to create an interesting tree shape out of the dark background.
Though this design is simple, I appreciate the lines, as well as the contrast. And I adore the edgy feeling this piece gives me. Face distortion --> similar to what we are trying to do to Matt's face for the cover/folio
This split image and type is design well because of the greyscale coloring. Target audience Design- overall the font selection was perfect because it is still readable. I like the white space on the right gives the illustration depth.
