I don't really know what the best color combination is, but I do know that it doesn't look like a hauted house anymore. Also, the gates are just an idea. What do u think?


  1. I really like the one on the bottom left Merielen. While the color choice I may not agree with (seems too bright for me), just that silhouette works more than your previous illustrations.

    Also, the one where it is the second row (under the gate designs), I'm starting to see the roofs as "v's" now, instead of a giant "w". Still might want to tweak it a bit just so we can see the v's, if you want to showcase them. But this is in a better direction, and a better opportunity for you to push and play around.

    The contrast between the clean illustration and the typeface is interesting. I can't fully say it's working, cuz I don't know. However, if the majority of people like the typeface with the illustration, then you're in good hands. :)

  2. hey meriellen! i am also drawn to the simplicity of the bottom left one. i would center the words a bit more and maybe try a different color?

    but yea! in general, when you translate your colors to black and white, maybe you should try a shade of gray? the black is still a bit forebodingg
