he’s a student at minneapolis art & design. (see “about” section on his site) very solid work already with great focus, probably a good guy to watch in the years to come.

Nice work. He needs to pay more attention to the kerning, though, in the “community, freedom…” section. Otherwise, it’s excellent.

yeah, i think the only problem it’s the kerning. it’s incredible how the blank space in the left leads you to the photograph. nice work!

Clean work and great use of color. I would love to see him do his own photography, and get a little more experimental with the type like he did in his identity.

Just wanted to say thanks for the comments and critique. I am spending time revisiting this work and your words inspire me to tweak this design to its full potential. As a student, it is valuable to hear critical commentary outside of the classroom context.
