No scallops keep things blocked out like you were using graph paper (of the mind... The mind... The mind) and put the boring shit up high. Symmetry will make people feel better about the board but not necessarily understand why. (bc design is the secret language that runs the world)

I tried that and it really does seam that cut-out letters are mandatory.

I didn't realize that scalloped edges were used outside elementary school classrooms. (They are my job when I help my wife with her classroom at the begining of every school year)

The text of this email says "come and have fun" but the design says "come and end up kidnapped in someone's basement."

It's the quotes around "adult" that get me. It's not really wrong, it's just that back in my day one simply included BYOB in the invite and everyone knew what that meant.
