I really like the bold typography and use of white space. It also flirts with rule of thirds.

This is a very interesting way to layer and use a cut out. I like that the person is lined up with the rule of thirds.

I like these designs because of the playful text design. The different typefaces definitely kept my attention and the minimal graphics was a nice addition to the overall layout. The different text weights gave contrast and visual hierarchy and each design was well balanced.

Light grey ruled lines structure the sections w/o making them separate or cramped. Playful typography creates contrast, visual interest, and visual hierarchy while maintaining an overall balanced design.
